    Default Newbie, who is totally obsessed!

    Hello to all. Love the forum, MSQC and quilting. Just got a new machine for Christmas and have made one quilted wall hanging and just completed the piecing (sp?) portion of a large queen quilt. Being a new empty nester, my husband converted one of our bedrooms to a sewing room, so that is my new hangout with Pandora blaring 70s music and sewing and singing away, a real stress reliever. In fact my son has got so enthused with my new hobby, he went and bought himself a new machine and has 2 quilts in the works. I am most interested in learning to quilt my projects with my standard machine and always on the lookout for information regarding that. Thanks to all for the neat information that you share.

    Hi and welcome from Kentucky! Congratulations on your new addiction and new quilting room! It's nice to hear your son has been bitten by the quilting bug and shares your enthusiasm. There are guys here on the forum (Mike, Denis, and Ryan to name a few) who do great work. Maybe your son will join in too.

    Hello and welcome, glad to have you with us. Stop in often so we can get to know you. Where are you from?
    Nice to have your son quilting along with you. Be sure to post pictures of your work and your son's work also.. We do love to ooh and aah over others work.

    Wow, we got a two-for! Welcome to you and your son, should he join in here, WHICH HE SHOULD! Lots of great information, links and help here for quilting. Be sure you get a walking foot for your machine. You can do some great quilting on your machine with it.

    We're sure glad to have another obsessed quilter . . . coming in with added enthusiasm . . . and I personally welcome you from NW MO. Tell your son he's welcome here, too. We have many wonderful male quilters (they just don't seem to be as loquacious as we females).
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
