    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Howdy from Texas! It's so good to have you as a new member of the Quilting Board. You will learn soooo much here from lots of quilters with all levels of quilting skills. Ask, ask, ask as many questions as you can think of & someone will be around to help you with answers. If you haven't already, learn to take & post pictures here because we love pictures & would like to see your progress.

    Well hello and well met. I don't come from a family of quilters but I decided when I was 17 (my senior year in high school) that I wanted to make a quilt. That was back in 1978 and back then I found the little old quilting ladies a bit intimidating, now that I've become one I want to let you know we aren't all that bad!

    The two constants in my life have been quilting and music. I hope it is the start of a life long hobby for you, and if not remember to have some fun along the way

    Welcome AmeliaMarie75!

    Another past 4-H'er here .... in Ontario, Canada.

    Sure wish that we could have learned about quilting when I was in 4-H.
    The clubs now are so much more exciting and interesting than were offered, back in the day!

    Good for you for already starting a thread for help with your project ... we're here to help!

    Hello and welcome from an Iowa girl!

    Another past 4-H'er here. You have a lifetime of creative pleasure ahead of you.

    I've been teaching my GD's to sew. This past summer I had 4 of them ages 10-15 sewing. They each made a baby quilt from my scraps and the 13 yo LA'ed 2 baby quilts. I wish I would have gotten them going at the LA sooner as school has started. But there is always snow days ahead! I look forward to seeing what you have done.

    Hello from another Mountaineer! I live in Clarksburg. I think 4-H is a wonderful thing and I'm sure you will learn a lot. Keep on quilting because we need young people to carry on this tradition.

    I can only be wishful that someone would have be around at your age to interest me and assist me in learning to quilt. I would watch my sister (21 yrs older than me) do patchwork. I wanted so badly to learn but she live a thousand miles away from us. Jump right in ask questions to your hearts content and share your experiences with us.

    Wow! You're s!tarting early! This is a great place to come to for help and to help us, too. Welcome>
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Hi from Ks....not too far away from Clarinda Iowa, where 4 H started
    My greatest fear is all of my family standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" he was.
