    New here--Hi!

    I'm 61, mom of 3 and grandma of 2 little sweeties. I've always wanted to quilt but never found the time. I'm especially interested in hand applique and landscape quilting.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome from Mississippi! I just posted pictures from the Fall Paducah quilt show... loads of hand applique and landscape art quilts. Lots of inspiration.

    Welcome! I'm pretty new here myself. Hand workers have my respect, I'm really a machine piecer. Learning to machine quilt as well but piecing is mostly what I do. Show us pictures when you are ready, I'm always up to admire someone's project.

    Welcome from South Louisiana. YouTube is a wonderful resource for all things quilting. I'm a machine gal. If it's handwork, it don't get done.
