    Hi from Sweden!

    Hi! Im Erika, a 27 year old housewife from the northern part of Sweden, I live 68 miles from the Arctic Circle. I have sewn some patchwork pillows during my teenage years, but never took it further than that until the end of 2011. Then I sewed my first quilt! I was so pleased with it that I sewed one for my mother a few weeks later. Found the Quilting Board this week-end when I searched the internet for inspiration for new projects.

    Have learned a lot about quilting from Missouri Star Quilt Company Quilting Tutorials on YouTube. Their tutorials are a constant source of inspiration. Past few weeks I have sewn tablecloths and runners. It's really fun!

    Welcome from Tennessee USA. (I live within 20 miles of Graceland.) You will find so much inspiration with the board that it will take you a lifetime to make all the quilts that end up on your to-do list! We are glad to have you.

    Hello, Erika,
    Welcome to the quilting board. I seldom reply on this board - just read - but I had to reply to you since you are from Sweden where my husband and I visited in summer 2007. Our youngest son, who was employed by Sony Ericcson in Raleigh, NC, was sent to Malmo (opposite side of Sweden from you!) to live and work for 6 months at the main headquarters for that company. We first took a tour for English speakers (England, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the USA) to Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Then we flew back to Copenhagen where he and his wife met us in the airport. He had a rented car, so we drove back to Malmo and spent some time with them. That part of the world is absolutely spectacular. We especially enjoyed the fjords of Norway.
    Best wishes to you in your quilting endeavors.
    Marcia

    Welcome! I am somewhat of a newbie on the board myself. I have found it to be fun, interesting and in some cases I have gotten some much needed advice. Hope you find yourself right at home with us.
