    Am lovin' this web site! Everyone is so helpful and am learning so much from all of you.

    Started quilting about 1 year ago and am on my way to making quilts for each of our 14 grandchildren. 5 done, so far!

    Am also trying to complete a wall hanging for each month of the year for over our fireplace. Am already behind. Will be all set (I hope) for 2011!!! :roll:

    I know what you mean! I tried that make a quilt for each month last year. I decided that I'd make one each month. I was instantly behind! It was a lot of work, of course the wall hanging patterns I had were pretty big, @ 24"x36" for the background with appliqued "picture". I still want to get them done. I have 2 completely done and one done, but not quilted and another with all the fabrics picked out.

    Maybe we should set a goal for having all the blocks done in 3 years and be happy with four monthly quilts done a year? At least in 3 years it would be done, instead of still being a UFO!

    Oh yeah - we are getting a lot of rain this AM. We need it though, it's been a "dry" winter. It's too bad in a way because my brother and his wife are visiting from Calgary. They are thoroughly enjoying the flowers and blooming trees!

    Welcome, from Beaverton! Yes, it's been quite a rainy day, but we wouldn't have the pops of spring flowers without it. Your quilts are beautiful! Glad you've joined us. :D

    Those are both so pretty. I was trying to make a wall hanging for each month too. I am so far behind I'll never get caught up. :lol:

    Welcome to the forum! I grew up in Oregon, and I know quilting is a great activity for all those rainy days! Your quilts are lovely - I really like the one you made for your daughter - great colors, and a nice design!

    I won't complain again, I thought quilting for the 5 grandkids was a lot. 14! God bless you!

    I can really sympathize! Living in Ridgefield, WA (just above Vancouver) is about as wet with no paving or gravel on out 8 acres! Mud city!
    Nice quilts! I been at it for just a bit longer that you.
