    Red face New to the group

    Hi everyone, I am new to this group, and look forward to chatting with you all. I live in Couer D'Alene, Idaho. I have been quilting on and off since 1970. I like vintage machines and like to learn about them.
    There are some things I would like to relearn, like how to color on muslin to make blocks, how to paper piece, look forward to being involved. Judie

    Howdy from Texas! Looking forward to having you here. Sounds like you've got quilting down & are ready to learn/re-learn some things. I bet we can learn from you also. We love pictures so would like to see some things you've made.

    Welcome, Judie! I just got the hang of paper piecing. Once it clicks it's not hard at all.

    Welcome from Seattle. I love the Coeur d'Alene/Pend Oreille area. It's good land with four distinct seasons (rather miss that over here). I spent a year in Moscow, ID when my mom was going to graduate school -- it is actually where/when I started quilting.

    I started quilting towards the end of the 70s but before rotary cutters -- good luck on the paper piecing, it is one of my "non-strengths" but I have a project that is nagging me to get back to that involves a few paper pieced blocks. I just don't think that way.
