Morgan,,, Congrats on your marriage!! And your quilting too!! Keep trying, and it all comes together eventually. You do what works for you, or what feels most comfortable for you. I personally have never learned to do the running stitch,,, I do the stab-stitch,, one stitch at a time. Since this has been my way for over 30 years,,, no sense in changing now. Have fun with it!!

Hello everyone! I am still here, just having many situations going on. I did want to say, before going away for my honeymoon, I put together a nice piece of muslin 18” and another piece 20” and I had some good batting, and I did sandwich these together . I wanted to practice, I did do a heart, and well it was difficult for me at first….yet I feel after awhile it came to me…of what I learned years ago. I had a good hoop, and while we sat out by the beautiful water 10 feet from our fifth wheel…I practiced hand quilting. I used a 10 needle….yet I have no idea of who made these needles as I lost the package. I had put them into a container, marked betweens. I would love to take lessons, and of course, there is nothing in my town like that. There is a new shop 1 hour away. I just may look into going there very soon. Anyway, with all of your help in how I was to get started was very helpful, and thank you so much. So many of you really gave many great ideas. (I am feeling good again too! Not sick right now). I am just working on simple things like a heart. I may also sign up for a class at the quiltunivesrity.com and then I may find myself learning even more so I can really do this. I have wanted always to hand quilt. Thinking of making a pillow for our bed with something to mark our love for each other. I waited over 20 years to get married again. I waited until my kids were all married. I wanted to not confuse my kids life’s... and here I am 56 and married to a wonderful man. I am happy I waited. Anyway, I am back again, and I will show my progress as I work here. Hugs Morgan

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the group but not to Quilt with us. I just had to add my two cents. Jean, I love Anita Shreve, have one I'm going to start soon. I also like Robin Cook. As for Jesse Stone, I'm just waiting for another movie, love Tom Selleck!

I've read all the Emilie Richards Shanendoah Valley series and really enjoyed them. Another favorite is the Elm Creek series by Jennifer Chiaverini. Sounds like I need to check out the Fern Michaels Sisterhood series. Haven't read anything by her in quite some time. After watching the two movies with Jesse Stone (from books by Robert Parker) I decided to read that series; however, the last couple books had some pretty ugly language so I think I'll let that series go!

I, too, am really enjoying this group!!

I have read all of Emilie Richards Shanendoah Valley series & they are very good. I don't care for all of Janet Evanovich's books, but like her Motor Mouth series too. Earline Fowler is one of my favorites. I think she either has a new Bennie Harper book out or due to be out soon. I met her at the Rd to CA quilt show several yrs ago & is a very nice person. She doesn't make quilts, but has always loved them so that is why she decided to use them in her books.

Just have to find out if anyone reads Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve? These two are my favorite authors. Just think, if we didn't read how many quilts we would make....nah, when you need a break, you need a break...

Janet,, Stephanie Plum books are written by Janet Evanovich, and the 'Sisterhood' books are written by Fern Michaels. Just wanted to clairfy this. I also love Earlene Fowler's books!! Emilie Richards are another favorite, and Debbie Macomber.
Pixie,, you always find friends in quilt groups.

This is totally amazing! I just love this group. I check in and read the comments everyday, don't always have time to write. I feel so much a part of you all. I love to read too, and quilt at the same time (thats where the audio tapes and cd's are great). We are all reading the same books by the same authors, and we even have authors here in our group. I used to feel all alone and here I have met so many friends that I have so much in common with! Love to you all and Thanks for being here!

I will definitely have to try Stephanie Plum's sisterhood series. My favorite writer of quilt inspired mysteries is Earlene Fowler. I love her ongoing characters, her grandmother Dove, her best friend with the bookstore in town and her Southern Gentleman cousin. She can make you laugh and cry in the same book. I do like Debbie Macomber and Jan Karon. Has Jan Karon done anything new?
