So good to be here with you all, I am new to quilting, have only ever made two rag quilts, I have a photobucket with pictures if anyone would be interested. I love sewing and just picked it back up last summer after many years of not being into it. I love making denim purses out of old thrifted denim jeans, it's a passion of mine, and I made 19 last year and gave them all away to friends and family, well except for the few I kept for myself. It's awesome to make something and know it's going to be loved and treasured. I am not new to sewing by any stretch, I made doll clothes years ago on my mother's old singer, and I took home ec classes in middle school and high school where sewing was featured.
Very happy to be here with you! :D

Welcome Pamela. You will love this group. Everyone is so nice and willing to share their knowledge.
The quilters here will have you trying all kinds of new things in no time at all and they will be very generous with ideas, instructions, and support. Have fun!

Nice meeting you Pamela
I'm also new to quilting. I started last year to do patchwork and I tried hand quilting. But I'm not new to sewing either. I made a lot of my kids clothes, including Halloween costumes and I have sewn toys for kids and my dogs. I made the same outfit for my daughter's doll, so that she and her doll would match. I have also knitted and crochet a lot. I live in N Florida, close to Tallahassee.
Welcome Pam! Who doesn't love a snuggly rag quilt?! Stick around here long enough, though, and I'll bet we can talk you into trying some other quilting designs! Glad you joined us!

Thank you all for the warm welcome! I really am excited about the idea of doing a Quilt as you Go style quilt or the Fun & Done style rather. I will see about uploading some pictures of my two quilts. I had such a fun time with it, I really was kind of disappointed when I finished! LOL! :D Thanks again for the lovely welcome. I am looking forward to posting with you all and getting to know you and share ideas and project pics!
Thank you Karla! I am enjoying the community a lot so far! :D
