    Hi from NW Florida

    Hi, my name is Ali and I'm a 33 yr. old, happily married, SAHM and homeschooling parent to two preteen boys. I have been quilting off and on since I was in my late teens. I stopped sewing for several years after I lost my sewing machine (and my house) to a tornado in 2005. A few years after that I picked up the art of hand piecing and discovered that I liked it a lot. However, hand piecing is very tedious and time consuming. Since I didn't ever finish a hand pieced quilt, my husband bought me a new sewing machine this past Christmas. And he did it just in time because we learned that his sister is going to have a baby!!

    I look forward to getting to know everyone here.
    Ali

    Welcome from central FL, Lakeland. I'm a newbie also, but I'm really enjoying this site. I know you will too.
    Good luck with your new machine.

    Welcome Ali I'm down the coast in the Clearwater/St. Pete area. Lots of baby quilt ideas here. So many great fabrics out there now for tummy time quilts! The problem is choosing! Have fun!
