Hi all! My name is Terri-Lynn, and I'm from central Ontario. My baby girl is all grown up and heading off to college this fall, and my SO works out West most of the time, so I figured this is the perfect time to turn my fabric collection into some actual finished quilts (typing a bit red-faced as I admit to having only finished a handful of quilts since being bitten by the bug at least five+ years ago, though my fabric stash is nicely growing!). And since I'm getting serious about it, I figured it's about time I joined your club...something I've wanted to do for a while now. I look forward to making new friends, and being inspired by y'all.
Welcome to the group Terri-Lynn. It's great to have you with us. When you have more time check out the UFO group. Perhaps you will be inspired to finish some more projects. There are lots of projects going on to help you use up your stash as well.
Have fun on the site.
Welcome to the site. Hope you drop in and chat with us frequently. You will find lots of inspiration here....I know I have.
Terri-Lynn, It is a pleasure to meet you. Another Canadian friend. I am involved in this quilting thing 24 hours aday. I even find myself waking up to ideas about quilts and I have one of those stashes... and it keeps growing... decided this summer that I am going to start using up my stash as backings for my quilts.
I hope you like it here as it is a great place with a great group of quilter's.
hi terri-lynn welcome to our group. actually fabric collecting and quilting are two separate entities, and collecting one has little to do with the other. i collect fabrics, but when i need to make a quilt, somehow i find myself going out and buying fabric for it? i hope you enjoy it here and ind some inspiration. you can find a lot of good info here, too, gini

Welcome to the QCA forums, Terri-Lynn!

Everyone seems so very nice, and inspiration is everywhere I look. :) What a very nice community!
