    Papercrafter and Quilting Newbie from South Carolina

    My name is Leah, I live in the land of warmth, except for a once in a decade ice storm, South Carolina, I came to SC via Maine 22 years ago so I can feel the pain of those of you who are having a miserable winter. I have 3 daughters, 5 granddaughters and 1 grandson. I have been a papercrafter for years, had my own forum for about 5 years, had a ball swapping crafts with other ladies from around the country, many are still my friends. I hate scrapbooking but love scrapbook paper, much the way I now love fabric, I use the paper to make a multitude of things, from cards to gifts.

    This past November my husbands aunt gave him a beautiful sampler quilt and I studied it and thought, hey, it's nothing but shapes sewn together in different ways, I can do that, so I did. I came up with the bright idea to make quilts for one of my daughters and 4 of my granddaughters, believe it or not, (I can't believe it) I made 5 in the month of December and gave them for Christmas presents, they were a big hit. I have made 6 so far this year and have 3 more in the works.

    Forgot to mention, thanks to Jenny and her tutorials that got me started right.
    Since you're always on my mind can you straighten out the mess up there?

    Leah I'm not one of the ladies, there are a few of us fellas here, but welcome to the forums. You sound like you have been a busy busy quilter. I wish I could make that many in that amount of time. Bob
