I am a mother of four (should be empty-nester, but they seem to be coming back more than leaving!! Haha!). DH is a veterinarian, so we have a farm of animals and a practice that keeps us busy!  I have been wanting to get into quilting for the longest time, and at 51 figure there's no time like NOW!!  I'm working on my FIRST quilt -- for my Mom who is receiving chemo now -- but already have the next 20+ being planned in my head!! haha!  I'm planning on taking classes, but have already watched soooo many online videos and read sooo many mags and books, I feel like I'm getting a good start!! Yes, the fabric acquisition is already mounting... love all the beautiful/adorable fabrics out there. I've been scrapbooking for several years, and the two hobbies seem to have similarities with all the neat colors, designs, and textures. I look forward to learning so much from you experienced quilters (well, from everyone, actually!) and seeing all the beautiful, labors of love that you all create!

Hello dcwishy!  You sound like a fun type who will fit in here nicely!  Looking forward to seeing a picture of your first quilt and of your sewing space and stash.  Welcome to QCA!  How is your mom doing with her chemo?

Hi dcwishy welcome and enjoy.  I understand about the empty-nester thing, three of my four have been back to the nest for a bit.  Sending up prayers for your mom.

Hello Dcwishy!! Welcome =)
I'm very new to this group (joined a few days ago) but have found everyone to be so incredibly helpful and kind. I'm sure you will learn a lot from everyone here.
I have only been quilting steadily for a year now (a few quilts here in there for the last 3 years or so), but it's addictive and becomes a passion for sure! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. There's no better feeling than seeing the quilt top you have been picturing in your mind come together =).
