    Quilting in the UK

    I have found quilting recently and have to say that the bug has seriously bitten me! I cannot get enough of the fabrics and the way they make up.

    I am making throws, quilts and cushions at the moment and would like to absorb any and all information.

    I haven't really found a good forum in the Uk, I dare say there are some... but when I think of quilted throws, my mind instantly goes to what I have seen from the USA.

    I am so looking forward to learning all I can about this beautiful craft... Sorry, I am still very new and excited about quilting.

    Welcome from another western New Yorker. You'll find lots of inspiration here!

    Maybe someday I will get to visit the UK. It's on my wishlist. Maybe some year in June, when all the flowers are in full bloom...

    Welcome from Illinois with a part-time home in Essex UK.

    There are quite a few UK folks here on board.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    What a wonderful friendly forum!! Thank you for the welcome. I already love the threads on here, and your quilts and throws are amazing. I'm only starting out on 6x6'' squares at the moment and dabbling fitting different peices here and there... I will post pictures soon. From small acorns... great trees grow lol
    As for a wish list. I am NUTS on pictures of Montana and long to visit as see for myself. I know the pictures possibly wont be realistic, but the openess, the trees ... wow. On my wish list is a little note to my self to one day stand on a porch of a Montana cabin with one of my quilts wrapped around my shoulders... Better get quilting... lol

    Welcome from Scotland! Are you interested in any of the British quilting traditions, such as Welsh or Northumbrian?
