    New Here

    Hello, my name is Ruby (mcfay), I just now found this board. I am also new to quilting. I have a Gammill table with a Singer 1191 with an 11" throat. I belong to a longarm board but they talk about things I cannot do with mine.

    So far I've quilted 4 quilts on mine, the first one wasn't a pieced quilt top, it was a cheater top in the wedding ring style. It measured 80" by 80". The next two were lap quilts, one I gave as a gift, the second one I raffled off and made 65.00 from it. The 4th one is a queen size that will be a Christmas
    gift for my daughter.

    I'm looking forward to being here.

    I guess I'm considered to be Dallas area also. I'm close to Gun Barrel City.

    Greetings, Ruby! Welcome from another Minnesota quilter.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
