    Hi, I'm new to the site but not new to quilting. Recently retired and now have time to quilt and use up some of the stash I've had for years. I worked in a fabric store for 13 years while kids were growing up. I enjoy creatng "I Spy" quilts. Trying something new and need some help with "quilt as you go" I understand the blocks but not sure about adding the sashing.

    Where in Eastern PA? We make 2 trips a year to the Lancaster county area to shop the quilt shops. We also shop in the Charm, Ohio area about 2 miles from my home. It's nice but the bargains aren't like we find in Bird-In-Hand etc.

    North of Pittsburgh about 5 miles from the Pittsburgh International Airport. Moved here almost 3 years ago from a county about 20 miles north. This way we are closer to the granddkids. Kind of old to be buying a new home, but we love it and are not sorry. Can't say we miss the old hometown even though a grew up there.

    Welcome to the board from Illinois.

    There is a nice Quilt as You Go tutorial here on the board you might want to look at to get a better understanding of the sashing part.

    Hi Sunflower! Welcome! I'm from southeastern PA. Your I Spy quilts are really cute! Puts me in mind to make one for my little great-niece. It would be fun to accumulate the different fabrics! Bye for now!
