    Hi, I'm Janet from Manchaca, Texas(few min. from Buda). I have been reading this board for a while, but decided to join. It seems to be the best quilting board I've ever been on. I am very new to quilting, but have been sewing since I was a child sitting on the floor making barbie clothes while my mom and grandmother sewed. I have started an applique quilt for my grandson, and also a PP Quilt. Haven't gotten them put together yet, and the pp is all done by hand. I know that I have alot of questions about putting them together, but I will post on that at a later date. I really enjoy reading all the posts and looking at all the pictures. I would be very interested in meeting any local ladies (or men) who quilt in my area.

    Welcome Janet from snowy Philadelphia area! My husband has been to Texas many times on business trips. One question though, what is a PP quilt?

    Thank You. PP is paper piecing. I probably used the initials wrong. Very new to quilting.

    Oh good heavens, I'm just down the road from you; in the Knolls of Slaughter Creek, off the 1626. I'm a nurse by day and a tired grandmother in the evenings, so not a lot of time to quilt anymore, but still love it and go at it very slowly. Occasional Sunday to myself, so maybe we could meet somewhere and chat. Ruth

    Best to send email addy as a private message to be safe. Anyone lurking could use it inappropriately. What a shame some people can't be trusted as much as we would all like.
