You are one BUSY lady to say the least! I am not on facebook but my daughter is, so will have her get me on the site next time she comes for a visit. By the way, what pattern did you use for your monkey quilt. I just love it. We have two weddings in July. My nephew the first part of the month and my daughter the last of the month. It will be a busy time for sure. I have nephew's quilt pieced and ready to load on my frame, daughter's quilt is in process. Will post pics when done.
Hi Tressa, I'm Cindy the other newbie to the Art group. I live in a very remote part of WA state, so spend lots of time quilting and on the computer. These gals are very supportive and helpful. You can ask them anything. Lots of them (including me) are checking the site a couple times a day for new posts, etc. Love the colors in your quilt, and the monkeys - cute! How long have you been quilting and what else have you done? You can sit for hours checking out everyone's slide shows. Lots of awesome quilts!
Welcome Tressa!! Hope you enjoy the Iowa Quilter's group. We're so happy to have you with us. And hope that you can join us in DM in the fall. It's a fun and group and I know that you will really enjoy yourself. I see that you've been posting already and hoping to get to know you better.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
