    Default Hello from Illinois

    Hello

    I have been sewing for a very long long time, since I was 10 years old and I am now almost 72. I live in central Illinois. I am retired. I use to make clothes for my girls (who are now 48 and 50 years old) and myself. I have made quilts on and off for at least 40 years, some of those are starting to show their age. My youngest daughter, her dog Molly and my cat Abby live with me. I am considering getting a kitten. I just love cats.

    I have 3 quilts ready to be quilted. Most of the quilts I have done I hand quilted or did straight stitch quilting on the sewing machine. I now want learn how to do fancier machine quilting and free-motion quilting on a regular home machine.

    Thanks for letting me join.

    Welcome Elizabeth from your neighbor to the north-Wisconsin-I am sure you will find this an enjoyable and supportive quilting group.
    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

    Welcome Elizabeth from (ha, ha) sunny Florida. (I shouldn't complain about the cloudy weather today, it was 82 here at my house yesterday)

    We're all a bunch of learners on our quilting journey.

    Welcome Elizabeth from Canada's capital. I'm certain you will find all the help you might want, or just sit and chat awhile.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Hello from another Wisconsin neighbor! It sounds like you are quite accomplished already. There are many machine quilters here who would love to answer any questions. Feel free to post about anything whether it is quilting or sewing related or not. You will make lots of new friends here.
