    Hi again everyone.

    I have an really nice lady who runs a quilting shop in Nelson, ALberta to thank for starting me on my quilting journey only 2 years ago.

    I now belong to a local quilting club called Southampton Quilters some of you might have heard of them LOL

    I'm only 37 and they told me at the club it nice to have young blood.

    I've made 2 quilts so far and my next project is a days course on the 4th july making a New Orleans Puzzle Quilt or Star Spin Quilt i think it's called in America... am I being brave or stupid.

    OOO sooo many quilters

    Do you all have a massive stash that you don't really want to cut up like me!!!! drives my H mad...
    :evil:

    Some fabrics must be held, fondled, loved on for undetermined amounts of time before they are ready for that first cut to be made!!!! 8) 8) 8)
    Tell your husband that is just the way it is :wink: :lol: :wink: :lol: :wink: :lol:

    Welcome LouLou from Rockford, IL

    I'm new here too and love it, so many great people out here.

    I don't think my stash is all that compared to others I've seen, but yeah I have fabric I've had for years and years, don't want to cut into it. But lo and behold there comes a time when it cries out to be part of something special and you'll just know when the time is right to use it.
