My name is Pat. I've been sewing most of my adult life but quilting for maybe 10 years. I'd rate myself as a confident advanced beginner. I've only done one medium wall hanging in free motion, scared to try anything bigger. I find that now I need to have something in the works, something almost done and ideas for what's next. It's great therapy! I love scrappy projects, for some reason I get a lot of pleasure out of making something nice from the throw-away pile. Must be my New England background!
