    Overwhelmed newbie

    I'm Jo and I'm friends with a lot of quiltaholics. Since it was something I'd always wanted to try I was an easy mark. Needless to say I'm a beginning quilter and haven't in my opinion completed a quilt yet (potholders and table runners don't count) but have 4 that are in the final stages which is why I'm here. My friends are wonderful with advice and help but I think they may need a break from my questions... I've seen some wonderful resources from Missouri Star so figured this would be a great place to join. I look forward to 'meeting' you all.

    Welcome Jo! I'm from Milwaukee where suddenly it is very hot, 87 at 10 pm, never thought I would say this but it is too hot to quilt (no A/C). You will love our Forum!! Looking forward to getting to know you and seeing some of your projects. Where do you live??

      Hi Jo,
      Welcome from Alabama. I have learned so much from this forum. I was a newbie myself when I first started reading the forums. I have learned so much from the people here. Don't be afraid to ask questions. I have yet to find anything question about quilting they couldn't answer.

                Another welcome from Canada. When it's too cold, too hot, too much rain, I'm indoors sewing, Well I guess that's almost all year.

                Enjoy your quilting journey and don't be shy in asking questions, tips or tricks.

                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 Ohio. I must say that I count potholders and table runners as quilts (also wall hangings). Not all quilts have to be bed sized. LOL Enjoy the process.

                          Hi Jo,

                          Welcome from PA. I am fairly new myself and don't sew near as much as I would like to. Everyone here is so helpful and they produce the most amazing creations. I doubt I will ever get as good as they are, but I would like to. I mentioned to my husband the other day that when someone gets one of my quilts/projects they are truly getting an original because no one can duplicate as many mistakes as I make. Doesn't matter though they all come from the heart and are stitched with lots of love. I truly enjoy viewing everyone's work and reading their posts. They are always here when you need them for assistance. Enjoy the forum!

                              Hello Jo and welcome from another in Canada. Hope you enjoy the forums and quilting . When I first started here ( not too long ago ) it took me a week to tour all the galleries of quilt pictures, I loved it.
