    Quarantine got me quilting again!

    Hello!

    I learned to quilt over 25 years ago- I was fortunate enough to take 2 quilting classes in high school. I stopped quilting about 14 years ago, after my daughter was born. When this "Social Distancing" mandate started, I saw my boxes of fabric and thought what a great time to start quilting again . I dusted off my Singer, dug out all my supplies and started up again! Since it has been so long, I have forgotten some basic stuff, so I am happy I came across these forums! My mother-in-law just bought me a couple of jelly rolls for my birthday and I'm looking forward to making a beautiful quilt!

    Funny what staying home will produce!! You said you took quilting classes in High School..was that in a Home Ec class?? Shame they don't have those anymore..I took Home Ec as well! What type of 'Singer' did you dust off?? Can't wait to see pics!
    😎 Happy Thread tails and trails

          Welcome to the forum from Canada.

          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

          Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

            Welcome from Colorado. I heard that some cotton fabrics last up to 100 years, so I'd say you're good to go with the stash you have on hand.

              Hi! I quilt off and on... but you are so right - I have quilted more in the last few weeks than in the last two years combined!

                    Quarantine has helped me realize that I CAN keep busy in retirement, I just needed to redefine "busy". I've almost completed my first MSQ project, the Ubushobozi table runner. African wax print fabrics are breathtakingly vibrant but I'm thinking I need to create my own black? binding.
