    Today when I was driving into our condos I noticed a lady sitting on the garage floor and it looked like she was pinning something. I went home, dropped off my new fabric and walked over and yes she is a quilter. She took me in and showed me some of her quilts. OMG they were beautiful. She is light years ahead of me. I'm so excited to have someone to share my quilting with and someone to help me with more challenging projects.

    I assume she is a new neighbor with a NEW CLEAN garage floor! How wonderful you have a close-by quilting buddy. I have two next door and it's great to share!

    She has 2 pieces of plywood down that she cleans after each quilt she works on. She has a 2 car garage and she can leave it set up all the time. I have a 1 car garage and would have to pick it up after each use. I am looking forward to having a neighbor that has a love of quilting.
