    New to the Board

    Hello, I joined this board today. My name is Debbie or Hand quilting Grammy. I live in Janesville, Wisconsin. I am a hand quilter. I may choose to learn machine quilting some day but for now I find hand quilting relaxing and being relatively new to quilting I have enough challenges to keep me interested. I might want to learn something new like machine quilting one day though. As I said I'm fairly new to quilting and I taught myself from books I've gotten from the library and video's I've found various places. It seems I learn something new with each quilt. It keeps it challenging.

    Welcome Debbie,
    Gosh, if you only do hand quilting, I admire you already. So glad you joined us and I am sure you will find lots more projects to keep you busy from all the wonderful ideas here.

    Welcome from Vermont. You neverknow the memories you leave when you hand quilt. My grandmother was wheel-chair bound and my memories of her were constantly hand-sewing quilts and rugs.

    Welcome from Missouri! So glad you joined us! I'm not new to quilting - been doing it for 40 plus years, and I still learn something new about every day!

    Hello from Iowa, I also am a hand quilter, although I do send some things for machine quilting--especially quilts for small great grandchildren. I want my quilts to be used, and children's quilts need frequent laundering. This is the best quilters board available, inspiration, instruction and humor, all in one place.

    hi from Minneapolis,mn. i also hand quilt. Mom always hollered if we just sat around watching tv so i still tend to keep something in my hands to work on while i enjoy a movie or other tv program, My Q-Snap floor frame sits next to my bed and i quilt away the hours happily feeling like I'm not wasting time. will be looking forward to seeing some of your projects.
