    Hi, I'm Paulette,[pollym44], from Natchez, Ms. Late doing this, but better late----. I started quilting when my mom died in 96. All my g-ma's quilts were under her mattress and dry rotted. My brother [now deceased] and sister cried as hard about that as her death. So I decided to make everyone a quilt. Never got to give my brother his, but everyone else got 1 or 2. I bought "how to" books and just jumped in. Since then I've won a couple blue ribbon awards, mostly for quilting, and have quilts in homes all over. I made one for a company to hang in their lobby that gave us scraps to make quilts for a children's hosp in Jkn, Ms. Good trade off!! Since I got my fabric back from my FRIEND???, I'm starting on quilts for the abused children center. I'm no expert, self taught, but I love making quilts for "little hurt people". Amazed at the quilts on here and love you all for your helpfulness and kindness. Maybe, when I learn how to do the pic's, I'll post, if you promise not to laugh. :hunf: BLESSINGS!! :D

    Welcome from Upstate NY. I also lost my mom in 96. I treasure the quilts and other items of her's that I have.

    I think what you are doing for the children is wonderful. And also having been self taught from books, not a bad way to do it all. Keep up the good work. :thumbup:

    I always took great joy in the quilts in the hospital. I thank the people for giving everyone a little joy when the words aren't available. I give you my blessing for all the work you take the time to make others happy even if you don't know them. :lol: :thumbup:

    Thanks Janet, I use to live in Seaside and spent a lot of time in Salinas, Big Sur and Monterey. Loved the bosenberry pie and coffe shops along the beach. Miss that beautiful area and the sound of the ocean. Live close to the Ms river here, just not the same.

    Welcome!! When I read about your Grandma's quilts I felt like crying too! What a shame.
    BUT so nice of you to make quilts for your family and so many others!
    We laugh a lot on this board but not at quilts! :D:D

    Welcome from middle of the mitten. You start quilting and find yourself getting ideas all the time. This is a great place to get inspired and motivated.

    Welcome aboard, no laughing here except some occasional craziness and fun. Hope your weather is better than WV, where it is snowing AGAIN.
