Hi, I'm Susan and I live in Tucson Arizona.  I have only been quilting for about a year.  I started with 2 t-shirt quilts and fell in love. 

My grandmother quilted by hand until 4 months before she died at the age of 97.  I treasure her quilts so much.  I'm hoping to continue the quilting tradition, but I machine quilt most of the time.  I am currently doing a hexie quilt by hand.

I'm looking forward to being an active member of this community.

Welcome Susan.  Be sure and check out the paper pieced group.  There are some activities for English paper piecing.

Welcome to QCA, Susan!  I'm dabbling with hexies myself.  It's pretty warm up here in Minnesota these days.  I can't imagine what the summer temps in Arizona must be!

Welcome, Susan.  I'm from Western Nevada, just outside of Reno, and not too far from Lake Tahoe.  I've been quilting about 6 years now, since my retirement.  I began because my daughter wanted me to make a quilt for her baby, and that's all it took.  I'm hooked, really hooked you could say, since I now have 6 sewing machines and a spare bedroom full of fabric.

I think you will enjoy your time with us, as long as you can put up with all of the technical difficulties this site has been having lately.
