    Hi, I am from Idaho. I have played with quilts for a couple of years on my own, but now have the priviledge of joining a master quilter on Friday afternoon for chats and instruction. She does not have a quilt room, she has a quilt house next door to her home that is to die for. I wish we could all be so lucky. My kids have moved out and I have time to explore all of the things that I have dreamed of doing. In the last two years I have made several quilts, learned to ride a bicycle for fitness and can now ride for 40 miles (looking to do a 72 mile ride in the Fall) and my husband and I took swim lessons at the local YMCA and can now regularly swim a mile. There are so many quilts I would like to make that I would have to live to 300 years old.

    Welcome from the north east. I love your story, love that you're physically active and that you have a friend nearby with a quilting studio. I hope you create some wonderful memories there!

    Hi!, and welcome from Alabama. I would love to retire and get into the quilting like I want to. I'm probably a lot older than you, so I'll have to live to at least 350 to accompolish all I want to. Life is just too short, isn't it?

    Welcome! Hmmmmmm! Does your Teacher allow photographs of her Studio, you know how we all love to see someone else's ideas.
