    New quilter in Texas

    I have wanted to learn quilting for so many years I've bought countless books but never made the actual move, but after finally converting a small room to a craft room I have started teaching myself to make my 1st quilt and it didn't come from my countless books but from a free video how to on a block I believe is called Astric. I am loving it. It will be for my oldest son and then plan on making one for the ramaining 5 kids. I stumbled upon this site (I don't know how) and I love it! I'm getting so much help just from reading posts & comments. THANK YOU QUILTING BOARD and to the MANY quilters here helping we newbies out!

    HI I'm from Co and want to welcome to the newest addiction, quilting. I consider my and intermediate because I just started about 12 years ago and before that, I just plain didn't sew, couldn't even make a bobbin. Better at it now I am 70 so I was a late bloomer. lol

    Welcome aboard! I live outside of Philadelphia. Have been quilting for about 5 years now and love, love, love it! It helps to relieve my stress levels as well as gives me some very worthwhile projects. If you have a local quilting guild near you, I recommend you find out when their meetings take place and try one out. You will receive many helpful tips and make lots of new friends. Good luck to you. Diane
