Margo Posted: Wed, May 18 2011 9:36 AM

Hi!

I'm Margo from Madison, WI. Been sewing and doing random quilting for more years than I care to admit. Caught the quilting bug when I decided to make quilts for friends for holiday gifts this past December. Since December 15, I have made -- and finished -- more than 20 quilts(!) -- all sizes. Guess you can say I've become addicted. Looking forward to sharing and learning more.

DS, wow!  20 finished quilts!  Did you do your own quilting or send them out to a LAQer?  You need to send me some of your energy and determination if so.  BTW, welcome and please share some pictures if you remembered to take them before gifting we'd love to see them.  Also you've come to the right place with your addiction!  Enjoy!

Margo--

In that case, you've definitely found the right group!  Hope you'll share photos and stories of the quilts you've made--we're quite a nosy (but in a good way) bunch and love getting to know each other through our shared addiction.  Welcome.

Hi Margo, welcome. I hate to inform you of this but you have joined a bunch of enablers, you will start collecting more UFO's than you will know what to do with, like the rest of us. lol

I've been doing the actual quilting with my basic machine. Started with stitching in the ditch, then last month graduated to free-motion (makes my hands hurt a bit -- I think I'm too white-knuckled still!).

 

I just posted photos.

 

Thank  you!
