    Hi!
    I'm Ginnie and I'm a new quilter. I'm also a homeschool mom of 6 ranging from 20-4. I've made 2 quilts so far and am hooked! The first was a Sunbonnet Sue lapquilt. There's a long story behind that one. The next one was for an online quilt class I took. I just finished the top of it and haven't decided how to quilt it yet. I machine piece and hand quilt so far but I would like to learn to machine quilt. I also have a slew of critters I take care of. I'm excited to have found a quilting board to hang out on! Oh and I'm near Charlotte NC if anyone is close by and I would love irl quilting friends!

    well 2 have graduated so at the time I'm only homeschooling 3...the youngest has not started yet. My hubby works out of town during the week so I have nights that I have to do something with and quilting seemed a good thing.

    Welcome from Minnesota! Just think, you can use your quilting to teach your kiddos math! There is fractions, geometry, measuring, adding, subtracting...I see tons of lesson plans here! :lol: Don't most kids complain about "why do I need to know this? When am I ever going to use this?"

    I think you just took all the fun out of it for me!! Not really, I love to quilt, by somebody else's thinking processes!!
    Welcome, and have fun learning, and visiting here!!
