I'll be celebrating my 70th birthday soon, and just started quilting last fall.  I'm addicted.  I've always enjoyed sewing, but the notion of quilting always felt overwhelming.

I'm trying to work on precision and color choices.

I've made about 25 quilts since the fall, giving them all away. I want to tackle a king-size quilt for our bedroom.

Looking forward to becoming part of this quilting group !

Wow Revkat, that's a lot of quilts.  Making up for lost time?  I have been playing with quilts a long time and don't think I will ever get that many completed.  maybe "playing" is the problem

Glad you can join us.

Revkat, welcome. Would love to see some pictures of your quilts if you have any. We're all QuiltAholics and the only thing we like better than buying fabric and making quilts, is looking at pictures of quilts.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Welcome Revkat...25 quilts, that's awesome.  I probably have about 25 in various stages of completion, but it's taken me a lot longer to accumulate that many.

Welcome Revkat!  25 quilts in less than a year?!  I am in awe!  I'm one of the slower quilters in this club.  It's nice to meet you - be sure to come chat frequently.  (ha, ha...that's my ploy to slow you down!)

Well welcome Revkat. You will love it here. I am so impressed with your 25 quilts. I don't think I'll ever finish 25. I am also one of the slower quilters here.

Revkat - definitely make one for yourself!!  I'm a believer that each quilter should take some time to make something they really want for themselves!   I know it's our nature to give our wonderful projects as gifts, but nothing beats seeing one of your own quilts on the bed!!
