    Have sewed most of my life but new to quilting

    I am 59 years old and have sewed since I learned in 4-H many years ago. A friend of mine makes beautiful quilts and seeing her work has driven me to learn to quilt as well. I recently made my very first quilt with her help -- a baby quilt for my new grandson who will be coming in July. While I know the mistakes I made in it, overall, I am happy with it especially considering it's my first one! Now I'm ready to make snuggle quilts for my 3 older grand babies as well for when they watch TV, read a book, etc. I have spent my career in education but will be completely retired as of December 2014 so I hope to have lots and lots of time to quilt. I am looking forward to learning a lot from all of you. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this.

    Welcome from Florida! You have found a great place to learn. Congrats on the new grandbaby - my first (and so far only) was what gave me the push to jump into quilting. I had been a wannabe for a long time.

          Welcome from Utah Roxie, better get on the Substitute teacher list so you can pick and choose a day or two a month to work. You will need that little bit of 'extra' income for your soon to be growing fabric stash!
