    Hi all, I have been quilting for about ten years and love it. I belong to a weekly quilting bee group with about 18 other ladies. It is our "group therapy" time. I am a hand quilter and mostly interested in antique and reproduction antique quilts. Does anyone else share my interest for older quilts?

    Hi and welcome to the board. There was a thread going on the board last week showing some antique quilts you might be interested in. I'm not sure how to attached the link but if I can figure it out I'll do it.

    Welcome from Western PA. There have been a lot of new people from PA lately. Please share your knowledge about antique quilts and ask any questions about any subject here. This is a great board and you'll learn a lot and make many new friends.

    Welcome to the Board. My only child just moved from GA to Pittsburgh. She is enjoying all of the snow right now.

    I love antique quilts and new ones using reproduction fabrics and patterns that are fairly traditional. Also, patterns from Karen Witt. She does some amazing patterns.

    Enough of my rambling. Welcome and enjoy yourself. Stay warm and safe!

    Hi,
    I'm also new. I enjoy quilting,and so far am a hand quilter.Don't know if I'll get up the nerve to try machine quilting.
    Love to read what everyone has to say, and the pictures are wonderful.

    I live in Reading, and realize how lucky I am that I downsized to a condo where they do all the outside work! I finished a few quilts but haven't had time to take pictures. I will post when I get to it.
    Where is Confluence?
