    Hi everyone I'm new

    My name is Devika and I'm 52 years old. I'm from Sydney, Australia. I have 3 handsome boys. I had been working until 2009 but gave up to take care of my sick husband. I never touched a sewing machine in my life and don't even know what to do with the sewing machine. I felt like I wanted to do something challenging, so I went and bought a sewing machine. One of my friend kindly start me off with quilting and by the time I finished my first quilt I was really hooked up to quilting. I don't want to bother my friend so I started googling for quilting techniques. There you go Jenny and her 2 girls from Missouri quilt Co on utube was absolutely great. They gave very clear instructions and ideas. So I end up making 6 single bed quilts, 1 queen size quilt, 2 baby quilts, one talble runner with 6 mats and one coffee table cover within 13 months. Currently working on dissappearing 9 patch and tossing for another pattern. Just joined the quilting deals on facebook and one of the member suggested that I should join MSQC forum and post my quilts. Here I am..........

      What a tremendous output of quilts for someone who hasn't been sewing that long. I know I need to quit fondling fabric and start cutting and sewing. I have to catch up.

      You will love it here - come often, stay long, and most of all, just enjoy.
      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
