    Newbie from NC

    Hi! I'm Rebecca, I'm new to quilting but I've been sewing for a while. I also knit, latch hook, and cross stitch. I have a small crafts business that I run on the side and I co-author a Crafting blog. I'm 21 years old and I work in retail so crafting is my therapy.

    I'm currently working on a lap quilt, it measures 40.5 by 48.5, I'm trying to decide if I want to make it any bigger or not.

    Welcome from Beautiful Arizona. I know you will enjoy this site...so many wonderfully talented quilters, full of ideas and help.

    We moved to AZ from lovely Indian Trail, NC. I still miss the east, but so love AZ as well. See you around the site.

    Welcome Rebecca to the Quilting Board, from the state of Washington. Your lap quilt looks great so far. Your fabric's are so pretty together. Whatever size you decide to make it, I know it will be beautiful!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Hi from Ohio! Like your quilt but the size on it depends on who is going to get it. If you don't want to add any more blocks add borders to it.
