    Hi,
    I live in MO. I have been quilting for a long time. Made my first quilt in 1957, started my second in 1958; finished that one in 2006.
    Like everyone else I have tons of " work in progress", but always find new ones to start.
    I have 3 children, 5 grandchildren, 1 GREAT-grandchild and one golden retriever. Oh, yes and one husband.
    I love to hear about quilting projects, new quilting methods and to share when I can.

    Welcome to the board from Ireland. My first quilt was a good few years in the making, but purely because it got put away and forgotten. I hope you enjoy it here.

    Yes I do. It is a Grandmother's Fan. Little did I know anything about curved seams. It certainly isn't perfect, but my Grandmother quilted it for me and it is very special.

    Welcome from Spain, enjoy. I think we are all guilty of having more than one iron in the fire. (to many UFOs)

    Welcome from South Texas. My name is Sharon, and I've been a member one day longer than you and have already learned some great tips. Chat room can be addictive. Have wanted to hand piece and after getting tips last night couldn't sleep. At 1:30 this morning I was marking squares to hand piece. Could this be a dangerous website??? LOL
