    Hi from the UK

    Hi , Im from east of England UK , Im a relatively new quilter. I love looking at all your makes. Ive only made a handful of quilts (baby sized) and a couple of bigger ones. Ive made a bookcase quilt based on Harry Potter which was paper pieced and Im now finishing a scrap quilt which is made from 2x3.5 rectangles. Im still learning!

    Welcome to the board! I think we'll all be 'still learning' for the rest of our lives! Happy quilting to you now and forever.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    That's an awesome quilt. Welcome to the hobby and to the board from the soggy Seattle area. It was actually cold and dry today, good day for quilting

    Welcome from the East Coast--near Baltimore, Maryland. Hard to believe you made that quilt since you're relatively new to quilting. But then again, many of us made a "hard" quilt before we had enough experience to know the difference. LOL

    Welcome to the board! You will find the information, advice, and support you find here to be outstanding. Not to mention all the "eye-candy". I am constantly awed and inspired by the quilts the members on this board produce. Including your Harry Potter quilt! (Just last week, I finally started reading the series for the first time, lol)

    Welcome from Oklahoma in USA. Your quilt is stunning. I wonder what you will accomplish in twenty years.

    Thanks everyone. I’m away from my machine for a week now as I’m visiting my daughter, son-in-law and grandson in Tenerife. But there may be fabric shops to find :-)

    Welcome to the forum. My DIL is British. She is a delight! She has done a bit of sewing but not much! There is a wealth of information/motivation on the forum!
