    Default California Newbie here!



    Hello everyone! San Francisco Bay Area transplant here. I'm new to sewing, quilting, and (obviously) this forum. I've done lots of online shopping/perusing on the Missouri Star website though.

    Also, I love to use emojis.

    Welcome!!!
    I am from Michigan (about an hour west of Detroit)
    I'm sure you will enjoy the forum here at MSQC!

    In case you aren't aware, MSQC has a NEW tutorial each week ON FRIDAY where Jenny Doan teaches us how to make a new quilt. Occasionally Jenny will feature something other than a quilt tutorial, which is always fun well.

    This is this the newest tutorial from MSQC :
    Bow Tie Crisscross Quilt :
    https://youtu.be/jxk0TkxMlRs

    Here's last weeks' Tutorial :
    "Quilt As You Go "
    https://youtu.be/dCWFH94kvwg

    Of course all the items you need to make the week's tutorial are listed below the video. (the videos can also be seen on YouTube as well.
    ************************************************** *******************
    If you've ordered online, maybe you know that MSQC has a DAILY DEAL? Here's today's Daily Deal.....FREE SHIPPING!!
    https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop/dailydeal
    The Daily Deal is only for 24 hours, so be sure to place your order right away if you have to have the Daily Deal!
    ************************************************** *******************

    If you've been looking at the Tutorials, I'm sure you are like the rest of us who have a "Quilts To Make" List....longer than we possibly could imagine!
    In case you haven't looked into the tutorials very far and need some great ideas for Christmas there's plenty of tutorials for you to find something special to make for family, friends, co-workers, etc.

    Here's just a couple of awesome table runners Jenny has shared with us !

    Christmas Table Runner using the Half-Hexie Ruler! :

    ************************************************** *******
    Here's another table runner that started out as a Pumpkin Table Runner using the Half Hexie Ruler :
    https://youtu.be/NpCrxbr9hjE
    Then using the same Half-Hexie Ruler you can make a Christmas Ornament Runner as well (scroll to 10:27 in the video to see the runner as a Christmas Ornament table runner

    Here's another use for the Half-Hexie Ruler:

    I love emojis too!
    How do you like the Bay Area? I lived in Pacifica, Concord,

    Hello and welcome from Wisconsin! You will enjoy this Forum a lot, good for advice, opinions, inspiration, laughs and hugs when you need them. You can even find recipes here or vent about anything that's bugging you. It is a good place to begin your day with a cup of coffee. We are looking forward to getting to know you and seeing some of your projects.

    Welcome from Florida! My sister lives in Mill Valley - that's Marin county, right? She has been there for a little over two years now and loves it!

    Welcome MeliG! I'd love to tell you that I'm near you, but we've just moved to Southern California. I hope to get to know you through the forum! (And I'd better change my profile!)
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    Hi and welcome from Canada's Capital. It's a bit colder than California, but we are warm hearted and kindred quilting souls.

    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.
