    Hello. I have been a quilter, sometimes collector (fabric and patterns that is) for almost 15 years. Most of my work is done by machine and I send my tops to a local friend for machine quilting. My current passion (insanity) is constructing a Grandmother's Flower Garden (GFG) by hand, using english paper piecing. Like the usual quilter (40 projects in progress, UFOs), I already have my eye on doing a Hearts and Gizzards and Cathedral Window by hand. Insanity, I know.

    Greetings and welcome from New York state! We have a few hand quilters here, including me. I did a GFG top by hand and started a CW, but got side-tracked with that one.I like working by hand. It's very relaxing.
