Wishing you good health and fun in quilting. Sandy in Ohio here. I just made a lap quilt for a coworker who just started chemo for breast cancer. She is 44 and loved it. I go to West Palm Beach almost every month---my husband works there(don't ask lol). Have you posted your pictures yet?
I've recently moved to Middleton, Nova Scotia in Canada.
I've been quilting for 20 years ~ not counting the quilt top I made at 13 :)
Hey all, I've been sewing for 30 years, doing quilty stuff too. I like smaller projects, although I have done some larger quilts. I don't consider myself as a perfectionist and my seams are usually off, but I do love to create. I live in WA state. I'm glad I found this place. I've been ordering from CT for a little while now. I absolutely love the fabric and the patterns I have ordered. Right now, I'm working on the Walker Bag. I've never been good at paper piecing and the flower is a simpler one, so I wanted to try all this out. Hopefully I'll get a pic posted when it is done.
My real name is Sheila ; I will be turning 57 soon in Feb , in fact, gee am I getting older ha.
I have been dabbing in quilt since I was a young girl ; say around 10 or so
My Mom's mom ; who is deceased and Mom got me interested in quilting ;
I have a huge floor tilting quilting frame; but cannot use it as I have no room and i have RA
I ordered a lap hoop from Harry Bennet and love it.
i also had him to make me a Bobbin Lace Maker Frame ;which we both designed together ; took quite a few e-mails ha.
I am currently trying to finish a appilue butter fly quilt top.
and making a lace maker's bobbin lace pillow to go on my frame .
I love hand quilting; so far haven't been tackling machine quilting
I guess I have bee quilting well over 40 years.
I have made around 10 full size quilts and given them to family member
Most were hand pieced and hand quilted ; I am the only one to work on them and it usually takes me a year.
Now I only make quilts for me and my family.
Having RA and Diabetic type 2 ; and lots more diseases ; sometimes slow me down
but have all my needle work interest really helps . sheila
Hi I live in New mexico and have been making real quilts since Feb 2010, before that it was just a baby quilt here and there for my kids and then my grand daughter, they were just simple squares and when I look at some of them now I think.......really?! LOL but I am happy to say I see improvement all the time :o)
Hi! I'm from SW Arkansas. I have been quilting since 2000. I have sewn since I was very young, started quilting when my youngest graduated high school. I remember sitting in my grandmothers lap while she let me sew. My great grandmother did hand quilting for the public. I sat many hours watching her quilt in her living room. Special memories that make quilting so special to me.
My name is Sheila
I live in Virginia
i have been quilting for over 30 years.
I hand quilt each quilt ; i do it by myself as no one else in the family likes to
my dear deceased grannie; mom's mom taught me to quilt and my mom
my mom will be 83 this year sheila
I live on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie, Ontario.
I have been quilting over 30 yrs. - just a stitch in time! I love all aspects of quilting, and I am a longarm machine quilter (and still hand quilt too).
I love heirloom sewing & smocking, playing the French Horn, and motorcycles.
I am from Manitoba, Canada (in the prairies). I have only been quilting for about 18 months. Totally addicted!
Pat, I think once you get started it's hard not to get addicted. I got my girlfriend to do a small wall hanging and she hasn't stopped. That was 4 years ago!
