    Default New From Kansas

    Hello, just joined. I'm hoping to find a forum where I can learn and expand my quilting skills. I've been sewing for 45 yrs, clothes, quilts and other projects, etc. I haven't been making clothes for quite awhile, but have been working on quilts and window coverings for our camping trailer. Right now I am working on a quilt for the camper. I made 5 quilts that I hand-quilted before arthritis took my thumbs out and I had to quit hand quilting. 2 of those quilts were queen sized, and 3 king. I have also made several baby quilts. I tied most of those but have started machine quilting those now using the stitch in the ditch method. I made quilt a queen sized on my little Viking Emerald 118 machine. It wasn't easy, but I got it quilted. That's the one I tried free-form stitching. It's on my bed so my less than perfect stitching isn't noticed by anyone else.

    I am looking for a friendly group who is supportive, provides constructive feedback, shares victories and mostly wants to have fun. I have always liked Missouri Star Quilt videos so felt that any forum they sponsor would be the best place to start.

    Hello and welcome to the forum from So. Calif and glad you joined. I find it so hard to keep it in the ditch. If I stay in the ditch more than out, then I call it a Victory!

    Keeping in the ditch isn't easy. I try to use a matching thread so it's not as noticeable when I slip out.

    Hi and welcome from Canada. This is a great resource for quilting links and tips. I love M* and got to go to Hamilton, MO last summer. You are so lucky to be within driving distance. My husband has family in Kansas, so I have visited a few times.

    Looking forward to seeing your projects. Don't forgetto fill in user notes on your profile page.

    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.
