    Hello all!

    I've been lurking here for a few months and have finally desided to take the plunge. I have to many questions building up. I seen how wonderful supportive this group is and that is exactly what I need. I have a long way to go but willing to learn everything I can.

    A bit about me. I live in central Iowa with a full house. BF, 2 sons (12 & 13), psudo-step-daughter (14), 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a ferret. I only started quilting a couple months ago by complete accident. I never thought I would ever be quilting!

    I look forward to picking all your brains and learning from each one of you.

    Shelly

    Welcome from a fellow Iowan, I am at the north most area of Iowa in the central part. Hope you enjoy it here. You should find the tutorial section helpful if you are new to quilting.

    Thanks everyone! I feel very welcome. I feel like I already know you all. I've been looking at pics of your handy work and most I say 'WOW! Maybe someday I can do that'.

    Welcome Shelly

    I am also fairly new to the message board, I joined in July. You will find that you love quilting. I tried many different types of crafts, but quilting is what I have stayed with. You will find everyone here to be very helpful.

    Can I ask where in sw Iowa you are? I lived in Farragut from 92-99. Then moved to Omaha for a while before moving back 'home' in south central Iowa.
