    I'm new to this website and have found it very helpful and valuable as I continue my quilting adventures. I have been quilting for over 10 years and am still finding new ways to do old things and the tips and pictures are great. I am so proud of my latest it's my first string quilt. I loved making it and plan on making a few more. I didn't realize I had so many scraps that I have been saving over the years just in case I needed them or for a future scrap quilt. I use to make pinwheel scrap quilts but it looks like now I am hooked on string quilts until something else distracts my attention.

    I love how the colors make their own patterns

    I was so excited about my string quilt didn't notice how messy my house looks in the picture. But I think that makes me an official quilter and not a housekeeper or something to that effect. I blame it on my 3 dogs and 2 cats.

    I loved the freedom of not matching colors or seams together it was a nice break from my usual quilting sessions.

    Welcome from Montana. Awesome quilt! Who was looking at your house? Nobody noticed but you (and that's what my house looks like). We are kindred spirits - we know where our priorities lie!!!
