    Hello! I'm Lesley, from Memphis, TN! I am working on my first ever quilt, and I'm hoping to gain some knowledge, and hopefully get a couple questions answered!

    Little bit about me, I'm nearly through with getting my Master's degree in Education. I student teach next semester, finally! I also work at an elementary school as a teacher's assistant. Lately I've really been feeling crafty so I'm trying to tap into that urge! The quilt I'm starting is a T-shirt quilt for my sister. It will hopefully be a Christmas present.

    As far as asking a question, should I do that in the Main section? Thanks!

    Leslie, Hello and welcome to the Quiltingboard. I am glad you have joined us. I think we have several members from your area.
    I lived in Bartlett and Millington, retired from FedEx. I love to quilt and feel like you will too. Have you already started your t-shirt quilt? Our search field is a fantastic feature on this board. You could spend an evening reading the stories of other members making their t-shirt quilt and looking at the photos of theirs. A stitch in time saves nine. :-) I have learned so much from the members on this board. I will always be grateful.
    Enjoy, thank you for joining us and happy sewing.

    Wow, you guys are from all over!! I feel so welcome! I'm especially jealous of those of you who are not in the 80+ degree weather we are in right now!

    Sumcoop...I live in Collierville, and I went to Collierville High. Though we lived in East Memphis until I was...13 I think!

    Dsb...I have started it a little. I've got most of the shirts onto the interfacing. I still have to collect a few more. I'm stuck because of cutting, which I'll ask about in the main forum!

    GrammyP...I'll be certified for K-6. I'd take anything that was offered, but I'd rather do 3-5!

    Thanks for making me feel so welcome!

    Hi Lesley and welcomee board to the board! We moved from Memphis to Middleton about 10 yrs. ago. I lgrew up G'town, then we lived on Forest Hill-Irene for about 20 yrs. You'll love quilting...I got hooked and I didn't even know how to sew!!

    Just ask away if/when you have questions...they are always welcome here!
