    My name is Debbie and I live in Florida. I have tried quilting years ago but recently got back into it. Now I have more time at home, taking care of Mother-in-law that has Alzheimers. Well, to keep my sanity, I now quilt. I made a couple of lap quilts for hubby and me; and that seemed to turn out okay. Then I decided to tackle a king-size comforter quilt and make it on "my home sewing machine". What a nightmare. But I did manage to do it (LOL took me a year) I would stop and start.....sporadically. To work with it, I had to quilt it in four pieces to join together. Initially, I tried to quilt the whole king sized quilt in one piece and just couldn't handle the weight. So doing it in pieces worked for me since I am such a novice. Since that time I have made 2 baby quilts for showers; and am getting ready to make a snuggle quilt for hubby, cause he loves quilts so much!
    By the way, we cruise whenever we can. And now that they put these heavy down comforters on the beds; which I can't stand (I'm such a hot rock); I think it would be nice to take a couple of lap quilts with me to cuddle up with instead of those monstrous heavy down coverlets.

    Anyway, I am glad to have found this board. Happy sewing and hello from Debbie

    Welcome to the board from Ireland Debbie. I'm with you on the heavy comforters - a lightweight quilt is just right for me.

    You can call me QC, everyone does.
    Welcome from another Floridian. So you know about our heat, but most don't experience the humidity with it, that we do!

    Welcome from the state of Washington!! :) I live in the Yakima Valley. It's very hot here in the summer. That's a good thing, as I can stay in all summer, with the air-conditioning & SEW!! Please post pictures when you can, we love to see what each person is creating.
