    My name is Janet, I'm 50 years old and live in St. Petersburg, Florida. I've been quilting for about 5 years now and am so happy to have found this forum! I don't know any other quilters and would love to have people to talk quilting with!
    I hand quilt and right now have a Moda Fig & Plum pattern lap quilt in my hoop, a queen size log cabin on my machne and a snowball quilt of fall fabrics on my design wall. I also have in progress a hand pieced hexagon grandmothers flower garden.
    Enough about me, I have so much to discover here and just can't wait to read all this quilt talk!!!!

    Welcome, Janet, from sunny Southern California. Wow, sounds like you're busy. I may need some advice from you in the future. I won a partially completed Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt, with all the blocks made and several of the rows already put together and a couple more ready to join. It has a couple of yards of the original green fabric used between the flowers too. It even has the cardboard template originally used to make the hexagons. Sure wish it could talk. I want to finish it someday, but I've only done machine work so far and haven't gotten brave enough to hand piece - then hand quilt - the rest of this beautiful quilt. You can maybe give me some pointers.

    WOW! What a wonderful WIN!! You have to go to hexagonquilt-along.blogspot.com There is also a second site: hexagonquilt-along2.blogspot.com I spent days on there when I first started my hexagons and still go there to check all the new entries. I just put a couple pics of my flowers in the pic section here if you want to look at them. But be sure to check out these sites! You will really enjoy it! The first one got so full of members, they had to start another one!
    Nice to hear from you and HAPPY STITCHING!
