What a nice group of quilters here!  I have already joined two swaps and have been reading the message boards avidly.  

I am not new to quilting, but perhaps new to quilting "right."  My great grandmother taught me to quilt.  She was of the school that you don't buy fabric to make a quilt, the point of a quilt is to use up scraps.  Her daughters (all 4 of them) ran a drapery shop in the 60s and 70s.  So most of her quilts are made of polyester drapery fabric :)  Some are not that pretty, but dang if they won't last forever!  

I have made a few quilts and wall hanging.  Nothing too exciting :) pin wheels and samplers.  Right now I am working on a charm quilt (or begging quilt which is a better name since I am begging anyone I know with fabric for 4 x 4 pieces!)  It is just a nine patch of 3 x 3 squares.  I have done pretty well collecting my squares, except purple.  Purple seems to be the hardest scrap to come by :) Here's a work in progress pic:

Hi and welcome!  I also like your charm quilt.  I'll tell you why purple is so scarce, Nana and a few others bought it all up!  Enjoy yourself here.
