    Hiya from Las Vegas, Nevada

    Hi everyone! I am new to this board, but have been sewing since I was around 8 years old. I like to sew garments, mainly dresses even though I rarely ever wear a dress. I also like to quilt. For the most part I enjoy machine piecing and quilting, and usually end up making huge king sized quilts for either myself or my very close friends. I do have a few smaller quilts hanging on the walls in my sewing room, all made years and years ago when I was very new to quilting. Looking at those is a great reminder of how much my quilting skills have improved over the years!

    Right now I am working on a queen sized cathedral window quilt. I am machine sewing the base of the squares and hand sewing in all the fabric in all the windows. This style of quilt is one that has intrigued me for years, but it is the first time I have ever tried one.

    I am glad to have found a board with so many other quilters, especially since in real life I don't know anyone that enjoys this craft. Thanks for letting me join!

    Welcome from another Las Vegan. There actually quite a few of us around here. Glad to have you with us.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Oh my, what a very welcoming board I have found! I always knew there were other people in Vegas that quilt, I guess I just don't know any of them in person!

    To the few of you that mentioned you cant wait to see pics of my cathedral window quilt...dont hold your breath! Its going to be awhile, I only work on the hand sewing part for a few hours each afternoon when its too hot to sit in my sewing room!
