    Hello everyone!! I have been getting this newsletter for quite a while and finally decided to join in. The doll quilt swap snagged me. I am a beginner quilter. I sew by hand only because that is the way my grandma and mother were teaching me. I have been quilting for about 4 years but have yet to finish a project. lol. (I think I get alot of that from them to) I would like someday to learn to use a machine so that my projects can get done faster if i want them to. I really enjoy all the helpful information I have gotten from the newsletters and reading some of the forums. I hope that by joining in it will help me gain experience and new friends. :D

    Hi Star and welcome from France!

    I used to do mostly hand piecing and quilting but joining this board has really made me branch out into machining - I've even had a bash at Free Motion Quilting on the machine! Still love the hand work though - I like the balance of both techniques! See you're in the Doll Quilt Swap - well done for jumping right in!

    Hello and thanx. I hope to get my own sewing machine one day my husband wants to buy me one but I don't even know where to start with that. that might be my first call out for help, choosing a machine. I think i might be scared of them, haha

    Welcome STAR! I'm so glad the doll quilt swap snagged you. We're happy you joined our swap and this fun board.

    I'm so envious of handwork in quilts. It suits them beautifully. I can't wait to see your doll quilt creation! Have fun!
