    Newbie here saying hello

    Hi there how lucky I was to stumble across this forum I am so excited. I am new to quilting I've made two full size and two or three lap size quilts over my first year quilting. I have done three workshops most recent was postcards and atc's. I had the pleasure of giving my 75 year parents a quilt for their bed when I visited them in New Zealand recently it was just the best feeling. I'm looking forward to learning from the board and meeting like minded friends. Oh and I live on the Central Coast of New South Wales Australia. My dream is to attend one of the big quilt shows in America and visit the Amish in Lancaster one day.

    Hello from northwest Iowa, you have found the best place for quilters to share ideas, and learn from each other. Please take time to investigate all the parts of this site, there are so many good things. Tell us about your favorite colors and patterns, please.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome! I'm sure I'm in excellent company. I will have to remember to take photos to show. My big project at present is a vortex quilt I'm almost finished the top and thinking about the back. I've been doing a sampler quilt through my local quilting shop which has been good for seeing different techniques I would like to do many different styles but I have to say the log cabin block is a favourite so many diffent looks you can get and half square triangles. Lucky I have a large family to practice on!
