My name is Ida. I moved with my husband and daughter to Montana last year. I have been quilting since 2009 and took two quilting classes in 2012. I am in the process of comparing sewing machines. I also discovered there is a quilt shop ten minutes away from our new home. So I cannot wait to check it out this summer.
Welcome Ida. You are going to love this website and group of friends. I'm in Utah. We are almost neighbors. LOL.
Hi Ida welcome to the club.
Hi and welcome Ida, love your name, had an awesome aunt with the same name. Enjoy the site.
Welcome Ida! I will warn you, quilt shops and quilting is addictive!
Hi Ida, welcome to the group. We are having a quilt retreat in choteau mt. This fall if you are interested.

Welcome, Ida. This is a great site now that it is up and running again. We had quite a few hiccups through fall and winter, but it's great to having everything back and apparently working pretty well.
Hi, my name is Peggy. I am new to the site also. I know this has probably been answered millions of times before, but how do I increase a pattern in a book by 400%. Any help greatly appreciated.
Welcome Peggy! For me the easiest way is to use a photo copier, and sometimes that means for me, a trip off the mountain to Kinkos.
Welcome Ida and Peggy. Hope you both enjoy thus site, there's lots to do, and learn!
Welcome Ida! Where in MT are you living, if you don't mind saying? Enjoy our community of quilters!

Flo- thank you for the advise. I went to Kinkos today and had the pattern copied. It turned out beautiful, cost was $10.00, but it was worth every penny. Thanks again.
Welcome Peggy, do you have an iphone or android? If so download the QuilFab & BlockFab apps they are great for putting in the size you want and converting it to fabric yardage.
Peggy, I am glad it worked. I am getting ready to do my first paper piecing project, and that is what I did. but for me Kinkos was a 55 minute drive, I am in a small mountain community.
