Hi everyone.  I actually became a member of QCA two years ago about the time that I found out I was expecting my first child and was not able to spend anytime on the computer for a while because of my work schedule and many very rough pregnancy moments.  But I am excited to be able to see all your projects hopefully join a group or two.  I started quilting my first year of college for a stress reliever from my music studies.  However, I never finished any of my early projects (9 years worth) with backs and quilting and binding until I was pregnant with my daughter.  My husband told me that I could not sew a thing for my daughters room until I had finished the three, yes three very large boxes of unfinished quilts, table runners and such.  So my one week break from work that Christmas I sewed for 14 hours a day and finished them all.  I need to post pictures on my blog.  It was nice to feel like I had finished 9-years worth of projects.  I just finished her room a year after she was born and am excited to get some inspiration on some new projects that I can work on to enhance my home decor!

Welcome, Amalie!  Beautiful photo! 

I can't imagine life without UFO's!  I'm still working on mine.  My New Year's resolution this year was to finish, repurpose or donate every UFO in my studio.  I have finished several so far, and I believe I only have 4 left....Some were kept, and some have been donated, but all (so far) have been finished.

Welcome to the club!

Amalie--

So nice to meet you and your adorable daughter.  Wow, you really got busy with those UFOs, didn't you!  I can't imagine finishing so many projects in that amount a time.  Hope we'll get to see photos of some of them soon.  Have fun here.
