Hello from Cedar Lake Indiana  .      I found you after joining qca and am so glad I did.   Everyone has been so friendly and supportive.     I have been sewing since I was about 7  starting with doll clothes and decorating my dad's underware!    Then clothes and a variety of craft projects.    I found myself with boxes of scraps which I just could not part with.   Thus began my love of quilting.    My mother  had made each of my three children a beautiful quilt which they still have and so I wanted to do the same.    Each of my six grandchildren has a baby quilt and I have just started on one for a new granddaughter due in Aug.     Now  the older grandchildren want quilts for threir big beds.   The first done is a 120 x 120 puff quilt in vivid pink and lavender.   Everyone loves it and I have had a request for one for my daughter in law.   I don't think I will make one that big again but it is beautiful.    So though I continue to have lots and lots of scraps I am hooked.     I have four quilts going now among other craft projects.     I also enjoy painting  -   wood, canvas, fabric, glass......   I thought that when I retired I would have more time for sewing and painting I find that I still look for extra hours in each day usually in the wee hours.      I am looking forward to getting to know all my new quilting friend!

Have a great day and God Bless!

Hi Julienne,   I know this was a long time ago so clearly I am way behind.    Have been saving messages that I wanted to respond to.     Just wanted to ask is your cousin in Cedar Lake a quilter too?    Yes, it sure is a small world,  that becomes clearer the older I get.
