    Ha! Hello everyone! I started quilting in June. There was no warning label...nothing...here I am addicted!

    I started off on my old Babylock Espire and then got a new Babylock Quest Plus. When I win the lottery I'll get a fancy long arm or something. :)

    I've made about 5 quilts. My cutting and piecing skills need some work. But the galloping horse rider hasn't complained yet. I'm working on a quilt for a little girl at my church who's battling leukemia.

    I'm looking forward to hanging out with you all!

    Welcome Pam, from Sunny and hot Sarasota, Florida.
    The addiction only gets worse. I'm going through therapy with everyones help here. And it's been a success. Went to Joann's yesterday and bought $65.00 more of the clearance fabric, came home with it without a bit of regret. Matter of fact, I've spent most of the day fondling it, and doing the Oh's and aw's and how beautiful all day. Of course I've gotten nothing done, but again I'm in therapy and that's OK, just love it. Maybe I'm more of a collector than a quilter!!!

    Welcome from the HOT Florida Keys.

    We are still waiting for our fall weather. I went to High School in Corinth MS so we are kinda old neighbors. I still have in-laws in Jackson. Always liked going to the big city of Jackson to shop. :-)

    Yeah, that fabric is just like Ecstacy. Bet nobody told you about that either. 5 quilts since June - that's pretty impressive. So, how large is your stash already?

    Welcome Pam1966. Glad you found us. I happened upon the site when I googled. That was back in August and have been addicted to the site since.

    Quilting I started slowly about 10 years ago with nothing but a book and a dream. My Quilt In A Day took me 3 months of hard work but I finally finished it. I've been hooked on quilting ever since. Won't be long before you are FMQ your own quilts. It's a sickness. You just can't quit. I know there are meetings all over the world. They call them "Quilt Guilds" but I just know they are really QA (Quilters Anonymous)

    I hope you are having fun with your new hobby. Welcome. Don't forget to check out the chat room and meet some new friends.

    Happy Quilting!!!! :D :D :D

    Oh yeah--you're in the right place all right. We'll help you---make the addiction stronger!!! Hee hee!! :P Soon all you'll think is "I must finish this so I can post pictures!" or "Wait til the forum folks see THIS!" or "I bet I get four pages of replies over these new fabrics!"

    Enjoy the ride. :wink:

    Oh! PS. I have a Babylock Quest--bought it one year ago next month. Not many here have this machine.

    I have two largish boxes. Right now I'm stuck in the dining room. My mother in law was a professional tailor. She passed away about two years ago. My husband has been promising me that he will get out her sewing cabinets from storage and put them in the extra room we have. I'm not holding my breath. :lol:
