Good Afternoon Everyone!
My name is Brandy and I just located this website, and I had to instantly join! I'm semi-new to quilting (picked it up January 1st, 2012 and have fallen head over heels in love with it ever since!). I am a fabric-a-holic. I love the textures and colors and patterns and...sigh. Fabric stores can easily zap hours of my time in one fell swoop. Every fabric I touch, my brain automatically starts thinking of who it could be for, what pattern/design I could make with it, and what would coordinate. That happens in approximately 0.05 seconds. :)
So about me: I am a God-loving 32 year old single mom to an amazing 6 year old little man. I grew up watching my grandma quilt. I have one of her very lovely and amazing quilts that she hand pieced (1" squares) over the course of 2 years. It is something I aspire to do one day. I have made a few quilts with big blocks. I have also fallen into making hockey jersey and tshirt quilts. That is actually proving to be a good source of extra income, though I do it more for knowing how deeply it will impact the recipient rather than financial gain.
So this is me in a nut shell. I am still in the trial and error stage on a lot of things, but will be scouring the forums for answers!
Have a blessed day everyone!

Welcome Brandy, glad you found us. This site has the best ever people you'd ever want to meet. Knowledgeable, fun loving and compassionate. Enjoy!
Welcome, Brandy, glad to have you. Drop in to chat as often as you can. And, there are great tips and tricks on here, too.
Welcome, Brandy ! Glad you found this site. You will find many knowledgeable quilters more than happy to answer any and all of your questions . Where are you from ? Maybe someone is close to you and you can chat or meet up together. I admire you for raising a 6 year old on your own, its a big job but so rewarding. Children are priceless! Hope you enjoy your time here at QCA. Susan
Hi Brandy, welcome
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the site. Check out the project section to see what others are doing and be sure to post some of your own. We all love to see what's going on out there. There are alot of talented and knowledgeable quilters on the site who love to help so don't be afraid to ask questions. I've been quilting since the Fall of 1999 and still consider myself a newbie. So much to learn.
Welcome to QCA. I hope you enjoy your time with us and drop in to chat frequently.
I'm so glad you found QCA. Everyone here is so so generous with their information and help. I know how difficult it is to raise children by yourself. I raised 3 by myself and I must have done something right because all of them are very independent and self assured. My youngest is teaching and getting his masters in Thailand. I am in love with quilting. I sew at least a little bit everyday. As you get more into quilting, I'm sure you will never be able to pass a quilting store without stopping. I know I can't. I hope to see one of your quilts posted soon. And please visit often. Even if I don't post often, I read all the posts.
