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!
If that is a pic of your DD in the avatar she is gorgeous. Welcome to the site and hope you enjoy yourself. Hope you will be able to chat with us frequently and also share some pics of your quilts.
Welcome back Amalie.

EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
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!
