    Hello from TN

    Hello! My name is Farah and I have been quilting for about 20 years off and on. I learned how to quilt from a class I took at a community college when I was 18. I have always loved quilts and was really inspired by my Grandma. She was an avid quilter and I am so very happy that I have so many treasures that she created. I lost my Grandma on February 12th. I am still dealing with the pain so I decided to make a quilt. When I am quilting, I feel very close to her. I am working on the borders of the king size quilt I am making. I will be excited when it is completed so I can start on another one. I have been married for 17 years to a wonderful man who thinks I was born in the wrong era I have one feline helper and one canine helper. I am very happy to be here!

    Welcome! Quilting helps take the mind away from pressing issues. What part of TN are you from? Crossville has a wonderful show coming in June. There are some fancy quilters in that area!! We would love to welcome you to a guild. The guilds are so much fun, and very motivating. King sized quilt! I've never been so adventurous. Good for you, and Welcome!!!

    Welcome from North Carolina! I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Sewing makes me feel like my Mom, Grandma and Great Aunt are right here with me. They taught me soooo much. It's very comforting to me.
