    Hello all, My name is Brandi and I am addicted to quilting. I have definatley been bitten by the quilting bug. So far I have only finished one basic patch quilt, made several purses. But have joined a quilting group where i have learned to love paper piecing, am taking several classes right now am working on lover's knot and applique and a log cabin table runner. I also signed up for a block of the month at my local scrapping store using thangles. If I could I would quilt all day unfortunatley I have a job and 2 children and don't have a whole lotta time to do it. But I love it all!

    sdparent, I too have a scottie dog! His name is finny and we love him!
    Just quilting, nice I would love to have a long arm... can't afford one, but am considering a quilting frame that lets u use your own machine. I am astounding by the cost of having your quilt quilted PHEW!

    Hello and welcome from another Maine-er. I too have the quilting bug and wish I could quilt all the time but my life does not allow for it. I quilt when I can and learn a lot from this group. I am sure you will like it here.

    I love my LA. Let me warn you...once you put your own machine on a frame you'll want more space to quilt in.
    That's what happened to me! :-D

    Hi and welcome aboard from yet another fellow Mainer (in Exile)...You'll really enjoy this board.

    Roberta, my DH and I spent a month camping near China in 1999 and stopped at the little grocery store that had real cake donuts on Thursdays....first I'd seen since '71. They were wonderful and my hips REALLY loved them. Oh, all you fellow Mainers, I'm from Freeport.
