    Hello everyone,
    I am from Utah. I have been a quilter for quite a while, but I did take the last 8 or 9 years off to run my husbands business. So, you can tell I was a needle and thread quilter. NO MORE!!! I am so jealous I wasn't around when the jelly rolls, layer cakes, fat quarters, charms and other exciting things came out. Not to mention the "Go cutter"!!!! Wow! what an invention!!! And the long arm quilting machine... Can't wait to get one of those. I love to curl up in a homemade quilt with a cup of coffee and a good book on a stormy day. Especially when I was the one that made the quilt!

    I better take a breath. I'm so to start another quilt!!! LOL Seriously, I do enjoy making things. From quilting to sculpting. I am an artist and enjoy seeing what is in my head coming to life in something I have done. I also love to see what others create. So please show all your lovely quilts off!!!!

    Please don't think I'm a know-it-all, cause I not! Especially all the new gadgets. I am just now getting back in to sewing. I have to learn all the tricks of machine quilting that have been around for YEARS now. I hope everyone is willing to answer questions, cause I'm sure to have a ton of them. Well, I will shut up for now.

    Have a great turkey day everyone!!!

    That's great! I still have one of the first quilts I ever did. My grandmother helped me design it and quilt it for my wedding. That was over 36 years ago. Thanks for the warm welcome! Happy Quilting!

    Welcome to the forum from Missouri. You will learn so much and be on the cutting edge (no pun intended) real soon. Be sure to check out the Gallery for an amazing array of quilts and other sewn projects. I could spend half a day there. The tutorials are a wonderful way to see what's new and fun.

    Welcome from Florida! My daughter and I vacationed in the Las Vegas, Southern Utah and Arizona area last month and we hit a couple quilt shops in Utah. There were so many more I wanted to see, but time didn't allow.
