    My name is Joyce finch. I live in Northern California in the mountains. I am retired (6 years now) and decided I wanted to learn to quilt. I signed up here and am learning all the lingo, plus how to avoid a lot of errors. I bought a baby quilt kit. It has all the fabric, but I will have to cut it and put it together. Then I bought a rotary cutter, cutting mat, acrylic 24 inch ruler, the batting and some thread. I am now ready to start on my baby quilt. Now to find some time. I do a lot of fund raising for charities, I do family tree stuff, search for bio families for adopted adults, and a lot of other hobbies, plus I work a couple of days a week.
    I am real anxious to start quilting since you guys wrote how relaxing it is. Thanks for all the advise.

    Hi and welcome from Alaska. Just start at the beginning. Once you get started you will be able to fit it in around your other activities. You sound very busy. It is a very addictive hobby for most of us.

    I tried just staying home, but it was too boring. I like being around people and helping them. but I like making things and think I will really like quilting.

    Thanks all of you for the warm welcome.
