    Default Hallo from South Africa

    Hi, I am new to forums, but have been quilting for a while. Must warn you guys, I take foreven to do a quilt. I normally do my tops by machine and quilt by hand -mostly due to low machine skill levels and even lower levels of patience when it comes to removing threads! I am sure that I will find lots of inspiration here!! I travel a lot for work and when this body gets itself home, its get very lazy!

    Hi and welcome to the forums from a newbie quilter in South Australia.
    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone. . . Not your housework!!

    Hello and welcome!

    You found a wonderful board to find inspiration and friendship. I'm pretty slow myself, sometimes just because I spend a lot of time just trying to decide what I'm going to do next!

    Hi and welcome from Canada. Like you, I machine piece and hand quilt. And yes it does take time.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I am one that is glad there are no quilt police....I would be under arrest for all the unfinished projects I have. Glad to have you with us. I am sure you will enjoy your time with us.
