    I am new to this site. I am from Southeast Kentucky. I learned to quilt from my Grandmothers when I was a little girl. None of my aunts quilt therefore I am busy quilting for them when I am not working. I, like everybody else, have a FEW projects in progress(not saying how many). I look for new patterns and ideas on a daily basis so as I can start another new project.

    Hello and welcome from Central Illinois. My momma was a quilter from down around Horse Cave/Glascow (sp?)/Bowling Green area. She did all her quilting by hand and with such tiny, even stitches. Two of her five sisters also quilted and they all did beautiful work.

    Hi Lisa! Welcome from the Philadelphia, PA area. That's really great that you learned quilting from your grandmothers. What precious memories those must be! Hope to be that kind of grandma someday, when the grandchildren come along that is!
