    Hello to all quilters. My name is Vicky and I live in Great Falls,Mt. I have been quilting for about 16 years and I learn something new everyday. I am a 62 year old retired, married woman. Besides quilting I love to travel with my hubby in our RV. I am looking forward to meeting new friends who love to quilt.

    Thanks ladies for the welcome. Montana welcomes you both and we have more than enough electricity for all quilters. We have lots of quilt shops through out the state and lots of quilt guilds, so come on over. I'm glad you like my quilt. It took me about 3 years to finish it, mostly because I didn't know what to with the round piece, but somehow the light bulb went off and this is what showed up.

    Thanks for the warm welcome,

    Vicky

    Welcome from Florida! Good to see you're not afraid of color! Are the flowers 3 dimensional?

    Well my goodness ladies, what a wonderful warm welcome. Where have you been all my quilting life? The does have some 3D butterflies and flowers> I got the flower folding pattern from a book by Kumiko Sudo,who does Japanese Sashiko and Origami. I did enter the quilt in the State Fair and won 1st place and Judges best of show. I also won 1st place at the Great Falls Quilt guild show. I do have other quilts but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I don't know how great they are. I'll try and dig up some and send pictures. I mostlly give my quilts away for various oranizations and gifts for family. I do get kinda tired of making BABY QUILTS but it seems to be necessary. Thanks

    Thanks for the nice WOW compliment. Those cows take a lot of attention. Hope you don't have to go out in the cold. We got a bad ice storm and it put a crimp in my 25th wedding anniversary plans.

    Hello and welcome from East TN. Your work is awesome! I would like to be half as good at quilting! I've just started to quilt in Aug of '09 so have a few years to go.

    Thanks for sharing! Love the wall hanging with the vases- do you have a pattern for that? Would love to do one for our home.
