    Howdy, everyone. I'm Ron from central PA (though I lived in TX for some years and kept the howdy). Just joined this forum and have already found it to be well worth my time.

    I'm a college professor and don't have much time for making all the quilts in my head, so I'm naturally drawn toward making minis or wall quilts--40x40 is do-able but 12x14 is even better.

    My avatar pic is a mini I pieced last year from antique fabrics; it's a Bow Tie variation that I came up with by combining Bow Tie blocks with Four Patch blocks.

    Looking forward to spending more time here.

    Cheers!

    Ronster

    I live in Lewisburg, about an hour north of Harrisburg PA. There's a great fabric shop, Verna's, about 20 miles west of us in Mifflinburg.

    Hi, from cold, snowy Midland, TX. I understand your problem. I even dream in quilts, so I bought myself a nice journal, and I can quickly sketch ideas or even fragments of ideas for safe keeping...I often note color and fabric pattern ideas alongside my sketch, so now I don't lose all those great ideas! Welcome!

    Howdy Ronster from TX. Welcome to the Board. We value our men, they really challenge us with the speed of their quilt production.
    Don't loose your Ya'll & Gityet or before you know it, you will be saying, You Guys. LOL

    Happy Quilting,
    Helen
