I have fallen in love with the free-motion quilting method, although I don't yet have a "quilting" sewing machine. Or the skills to handle one. Hah I've run into a few challenges, but I'm not giving up on it, as it is overall a wonderful experience for me! It has been such a huge release of tension for me to embrace my creativity, and do it freely. I'm so happy to be a part of this community of people with a positive outlook and a great deal of experience that I can draw from!



I actually learned how to quilt by watching ladies on YouTube. Quilting is relaxing, isnít it?

Welcome from Southern California. Learning is one of the best parts of quilting, and it has never ended for me.

Liz, It absolutely is! I had forgotten how much creativity I had percolating in my brain. I am also learning YouTube via videos, etc. I recently joined Craftsy because they had a flash sale on membership and have am thrilled to find an ample supply of guidance there, as well! Lots of fun projects in my future!

Hi! I also live in the DFW area! I've been here since December 1999. Originally from the panhandle area.

Moved to Fort Worth, from Houston 30+ years ago then settled in Azle. My husband passed away 2.5 years ago and it's taken me this long to have an interest in quilting/sewing again. We were married for 50 glorious years. Anyway, looking forward to spending a little time researching the site. It isn't like other forums - this one seems a bit confusing and I have a good knowledge of the computer. It seems too "busy", what am I missing? Liz McMillan

Yes, it does seem a bit overwhelming. Lots of forums and the site is not in a familiar user format, so I am still finding my way. It took me quite a while this morning to figure out how to upload the photo of my first-ever quilted project! (I finally overcame the challenge, but my picture uploaded sideways.) YoU have a beautiful love story. I was divorced after 7 years of marriage, but am about to re-marry (after 18 years of just being "Mom".) I do understand putting your creativity on hold to miss a loved one. But time has a way of passing by whether we are happy or sad, so I am glad to hear that you have found your desire to quilt again. At least for me, quilting makes me happy!

Most of the time it is enjoyable and relaxing - but almost all of us have had episodes of things just not going together quite the way we wanted them to.
