    Hi from Southeast Michigan

    Hi everyone! I am not new to quilting (I've made stuff off and on for many years), but I've become so obsessed over the past year that I need other people to talk to. I also just joined a local quilt guild a month ago.

    Here's a quilt I made for my daughter, finished last year:

    Hi and welcome from Maine, love your quilt, you must have quite a bit of snow in your area right now and just as anxious for spring as the rest of us are.

    Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome!

    Quiltah Mama, we don't have much snow sadly -- it's been an icy, cold winter in SE Michigan this year.

    My hubby is from the Grand Rapids area, but he moved out here to Seattle to be with me a few years back. I have been to Michigan once but since we have pets we usually take separate trips with one person home. I'm thinking of maybe staying with my MiL and going to the big quilt show next year.

    Love the picture and concept of that quilt!
