    Default New Quilting Guy here

    OK, I am 38 and new to quilting. I have an extremely hot wife and 2 wonderful children. I am working on my first quilt with 6 inch squares around a 12 in sq picture. Seems to be going pretty fast. I am loaded with questions but will use the coveted search function before asking. Questions about batting, long arm pricing, how tos, etc.

    About me: beautiful wife, R.N., I am a Ferrari/Maserati mechanic here in the Dallas area. I co-coached my daughter's team to a 3rd place in 10U softball. I love Formula 1 and have been to Silverstone and Nurburgring--both so awesome. I might have even teared up a bit-don't tell!

    I am currently working on a day of the dead quilt for a b-day present for my wife in October. I hope to have the top don early next week. The local shop is 10-12 weeks turnaround. I hope I have time!

    Thank you. I like your signature. I have 2 greyhounds. My girl (dog) is in remission for osteosarcoma, statistically she should be gone by August. She is still going strong. We are giving her the fullest best life possible. Your motto fits her. Nothing but happiness!

    Welcome to the forums from Connecticut. I am sorry to hear about your girl.

    As far as your local quilt shop (LQS) taking 10-12 weeks for long arm quilting, you may find that Missouri star is quicker. The website says 2-3 weeks, but other people may know more about this or have better advice for you.
