Quilt With Us


My name is Glenda and I am new to Quilt With Us. I have joined 5 groups and have already made friends. I am on a diet/exercise accountability program with one group. I am working on organizing a round robin with another group. Yet another group has given me great advice regarding the finishing of two quilt tops my GGM made by hand 90 years ago.

In two days I am already busy. I love it! The people here are gracious and welcoming.

I have been sewing since I was nine. I have quilted since I was a teenager in the late 70's. I made my first handquilted quilt when I was 18. It was the only one I have done by hand. I am a machine kinda quilter.

I am currently working on a commissioned quilt for a KING size bed. ARRGH! It is an African themed quilt, and I am liking the way it is turning out. I consider myself an art quilter. I thoroughly enjoy making wall quilts.

I am still learning how to navigate this site.

Exploring I go.

Until next time,

Quilty Hugs

Thanks for asking me to be your friend! I accept. Sounds like you are as busy as the rest of us. I can't imagine a move at this point in my life. Too much stuff! including quilting stuff! I definitely would still need a room just for my sewing. Thanks for telling about the diet/exercise accountability group. I did not know it was there. I will have to check that one out. As I said, I am a TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) member. We meet weekly to weigh in and have a short meeting and lesson. I had lost 40 pounds, then in the past couple of years I have gained back about half of it. I am on a seesaw now. Loss one week, gain the next. I can't seem to get over the hump. I am sure everyone with a weight problem can relate to that! I will enjoy visiting with you. Have a great week-end.

Thank you to every one for the warm welcome. I can tell this is a great group of quilters. I have been looking at pics and am amazed at the quality of work. Wonderful eye candy.

I am busy unpacking from a move. I plan on selling a majority of my 'stuff'.

I am currently working on a african safari/african fabrics quilt. I keep hitting road blocks and each one is solved the quilt gets more beautiful.

I will post pics soon. Have to find my camera. LOL

My youngest sister is having a baby any day now. Her due date is my birthday. Paige being bornon my birthday would be the best birthday present ever! I can stop celebrating my birthday and celebrate hers each year. I will be 45 forever.

I look forward to getting to know each of you.

Is the diet/exercise group on Quilt With US? I am a TOPS member and if there is a group on here that both quilts and has to account for their weight, that would be a fun group to chat with!

Glenda, welcome. I came to this website to find advice and tips on quilting and found so much more. These wonderful members will for sure answer any question you have but also laugh with you as well as offer a shoulder on the tough days. I have been able to actually meet several of them in person. Quilters certainly are the kindest people on earth. We're glad you are here! Carol
