    I have been viewing this site for a couple of weeks and love the way you interact and help each other. I have been quilting for a while, but still consider myself a student of this art. I enjoy challenging myself to learn different techniques--some work, some, well not so much.
    I look forward to logging on and learning or putting my two cents in.

    Thank you for such a warm welcome. I am truly happy that I chose to step forward and join your group--my first ever. I will get some of my pictures together over the weekend and show you some of the quilts, TV Pillows, Quilllows and other projects that I've been completing. I love this craft, b/c it seems there's always a learning curve...never a dull moment.

    I've been on your other posts but just wanted to say an official 'welcome'! Interested in your quillows - always wanted to make one of those...

    PS - Tucson, Arizona makes me think of the Beatles song 'Get Back' - we sing it to my son because my daughter calls him 'Jojo'! He's really Joseph! :D

    K3n - I'll have to look for some pictures of my quillows. I know I have some...last Christmas I made all 5 grandchildren quillows so I could basically do one every 2 days :). You can make them plain or quite fancy. The pattern was in a Fons & Porter magazine...I'll find the issue and let you know when I get the pictures.

    Hello from Rockford, IL

    this is the best group I have ever joined, very helpful and friendly. Been in other groups and after the first round of welcomes I was forgotten and never listened to or responded too. Here it is so different, I went out the live chat and felt right at home. Hope you have the same experience and hope to see ya around the board!

    No such thing - you KNOW that! :D It's a quilt lappy size ish that has a pocket on the back so when you fold it and tuck it in the pocket, it's a pillow. :D
