I just joined today. I've been wanting to get into quilting for a very long time. I'm from OK originally, and did a small hand-piecing project there - however, between kids, softball & work, I was never able to get fully into it. Kids grown and goen, now, I'm just tired of waiting and am anxious to get started with machine quilting. I look forward to getting some tips and encouragement, as I seem to be so apprehensive these days - I think I'm afraid I'll just mess things up, so I don't just dive in like I should. I'll get past it, though.... and I look forward to making some new friends! :)
Hi, Kelly. Welcome, you'll love it here. Where you from in OK? I live in the OKC area.

Thanks, Melissa! I really look forward geting into the craft. I'm years behind.... but am generally a quick learner.
Barbara - love your EAT SLEEP QUILT mantra.... :)
Hi Kelly! Some of the other Texas QCA-ers are together at a retreat right now. We're hoping they'll post some fun pictures when they get back home.

thanks Kelly ,I have a plaque,on my wall by my sewing table that says the same thing. LOL Barbara
Kelly, hi and welcome! Afraid? I was the same way but went ahead and did it. I asked myself "what's the worse that can happen"? I got myself a book with a pattern I liked, watched PBS' Eleanor Burns, got help at my local quilt shop with fabric selection and away I went. The result is the Log Cabin quilt I have on my bed today and that happened years ago. As for friends, you've made a ton right here, right now, so you're one of the family now, enjoy!
Thank you so much, Marie! I truly look forward to some great conversations!
