    Hi!
    My name is Kimberly, and I live in Georgia. I'm a complete newbie, in that I haven't attempted my first official quilt yet, but I just started sewing and wanted to learn more about quilting. Plus, I found some awesome fabric squares that I want to use!! :)

    I can't wait to look around the site and figure out what I'm doing.

    A little about me....

    I've been married for 7 1/2 years to my awesome husband. We have a little girl, age 3, and are expecting another bundle in August (another girl!)

    I'm not sure why I decided to start a new hobby with a baby on the way, but I figure I can learn now (before she gets here) and then eventually have time for it. :-)

    You'll love the board, Kimberly. Welcome from Colorado. If you are already finding fabric that you can't wait to use, I believe you may be on your way to being "hooked". :lol:

    Welcome from AR! Learning new things is always fun. Congratulations on your new baby coming soon.

    I have two grandsons ages 2 years and 6 months. I have another grandbaby coming in October.

    I need to get my quilting skills in gear quickly.

    Hi, kdownie, from florida. you won't have much time for it, but you will love it, anyway, lol! I sewed the whole time my kids were growing up, just squeezed in some time on machine, here and there, and then taught them how to help me, round the house, so we all had 'play' time.
    Your already a mom, so you know, it's tough, but rewarding, and it's not impossible as some make out! like anything else, got to have your tools, your determination, (consistency is key, gives them confidence and security), and a heart full of love, which I'm sure you already have.
    so, your all ready for #2! congratulations. :D
