    Default New from Central Illinois

    Hello! I am new here as well as being a new quilter. I have said for years that when I grow up, I want to quilt! Well, I grew up in October, 2014! Since then I have made 4 quilts for my four grandchildren. I started with a strip quilt and progressed to some more challenging ones. I have been sewing since I has in my teens, spending many years sewing costumes for ballet productions of Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, and others. Quilting appeals to me on so many levels--the need to be accurate, the beautiful fabrics, the chance to sit and just have the machine running while thinking about the many issues of the day or listening to interesting radio programs!

    I am the mother of 5 children, four of whom are married. I have a grandson who is 3 and had a granddaughter who was born 5 weeks ago, another grandson who was born 4 days ago and one more grandson due this week. My husband of 40 years is Art. He is supportive and wonderful!

    I look forward to all I can learn from this wonderful group!

    Hi, Tricia, welcome from SW Ohio. Your family is just growing in leaps and bounds. How wonderful and all the little baby quilts in your future !!! It is wonderful to have a supportive enabler named Art. LOL Mine is Bill and he always is on the lookout for quilty stuff for me. He just retired and his goal is to make me a sewing table for each of my 4 machines.

    You will love this forum and all the wonderful folks here.

    Welcome from Missouri. I too enjoy the hum of the machine as I listen to music or just let my mind go where it goes in my head. My get away place.
