    Hi, I have been quilting for about 4 years now. I started by using my son's old jeans and just cut blocks and sewed them together. My DH wanted one, and after making a few with the old jeans, I decided to use cotton fabric. I found a pattern online and followed the directions and had a blast. I was hooked. BUT I didn't know how to quilt the thing. I had been tying the jean ones. A friend invited me to the local guild and I am now a part of it.

    Welcome to the QB. You have come to the right place for inspiration and instruction. Just put a question out there, and someone will have the answer for you.

    Hello and welcome from an Iowa girl :lol: :lol: :lol: I, to have made lots of denim jeans. First one for my cousin who lived with us while he was in high school ( DH and I were 26 at the time!). I couldn't tell you the exact number. They are a great way to make a quilt for a guy!

    I'm new too, also from Washington state, now living in Las Vegas, NV. But I will always forever be a Washington state girl, both Western and Eastern ;-) I have SO many roots in both areas. Welcome to you like I have been welcomed so far, this is fabulous. Connie

    Welcome from Montana. I think a lot of quilters start by using our cut up clothes. I still have my first quilt using cut up shirts, dresses and blouses.

    Welcome from Oregon. You live in a wonderful place with good wine! Depending what your quilt block is try stitch in then ditch for a first quilting adventure. It's easy and you can watch your backing to make sure it doesn't pucker. Have fun with it. We all like pictures too!

    Hey Spokane, what lake is that, Newman? I had my FIRST honeymoon there, and I LOVE Spokane and the Spokane Valley, and Newman Lake, Liberty Lake too. I AM very fond of a lot of E. Washington, much history in Grandview and Prosser both, and also Spokane, and a grandson born there in 1998. Also grandparents both buried by the old church on the hillside where there is a cemetary right beside it on the way out to Newman Lake, can't remember the name of it, escapes me. Anyway, I'm not sure you were welcoming me, but I am a newbe and my home state is Washington, both Eastern (favorite in MANY ways) and Western for more modern ways, two of my three children were born in Renton at Valley General Hospital, during the time we lived in Maple Valley. MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU.
    Connie

    I have a friend here in Las Vegas, whose home town is Walla Walla, my dad went to college at Whitman, and I lived for many years in Prosser. Small world. The girl I know from there later moved to Sumner, Kent area, now also is here in Las Vegas. Her name is Judie. I don't know her maiden name.
    Connie MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

    Hello Constance

    The Lake is Roosevelt (the Columbia River) and it is near Brewster. It is the furthest the Salmon can get up the river before the Chief Joseph dam which is the one before Grand Coulee.

    I know the cemetery you mean. I think the name is St Joseph's. It is beautiful out that way. Well actually the whole area is beauiful.
