Welcome!  I am a newbie also, but I have found these ladies totally addicting, they are really nice but then they are so funny--you will be ROTHLOL.  So be prepared to quilt and  get addicted to this site!  I was shy! NO MORE! :)

You'll be revealing things to us before you know it that your family doesn't even know about. Lol Shy? Here? That won't last long.

Whatever happened to our Quiltoholics meetings? Thea?

Here's the link to the Fabric Hoarder's discussion for any of you who think you need therapy! Fabric Hoarders Beware ! Maybe this needs to be resurrected!

I reduced my stash a few years ago by 2/3rds. Donated most of my stash, sold some, and in the end I felt very good about it.  I am trying to finish all my previously started projects (PSP's?) before I jump to something else.  I have too many completed tops right now.  So I might help to keep that 106 yard average down.  Just buying fatbacks these days.  UGH, do those count then as triple yards?  We may be in trouble.

The only answer I can come up with at the moment is that they keeping making beautiful fabric.  Just when I tell myself I'm not buying anymore fabric "on speculation," I see something I just have to own and then, of course, something to go with it.  So much fabric, so little time.

I've done it, and more than once, and not just with fabric.  I've done the same thing with patterns, gadgets, quilt books and magazines -  I've bought duplicates of all these things!

Somewhere out there is a starving therapist, who used to be a quilter, who could be making millions of $ - if only our husbands could find her!   If any of you know her/him, DON'T TELL MY HUSBAND!  I love my crazy obsessions.  LOL!

Welcome to the site.  I absolutely love your little "sign".  It is so perfect and so true.  Quilting has definitely helped me maintain what little bit of sanity I have left....LOL>

Hello Laura,

I love your sign and I've skimmed through your blog. You're a very busy woman.

I'm really jealous of you nice NEW, BIG sewing room. May I live there? I think I can find a place to sleep.  The old one wasn't too shabby.

Your quilts are fantastic. Ladies she's working on a Grandmother's Flower Garden.

Welcome Laura,

I checked out your blog as well. Neat to see the transformation to the sewing room. It's so cheerful.

Your quilting studio is amazing....I want one...LOL>   I love your quilts.  They are all beautiful.  The Grandmothers Flower Garden is amazing.  That is one design that I have always loved but am not into doing alot of hand work.

Grandmother's Flower Garden has always been a favorite of mine, but I want to do it in a more modern setting, not the straight rows, more like scattered flowers as you would see in a garden.  I tell my friends (two of which are drooling and leaving not-so subtle hints that they want it) that it's on the 5 year plan cause it will take me that long to finish it!  I'm hand piecing the whole thing, but I'll probably machine quilt it, or it will end up on the 20 yr plan!  I love batiks in it though!

Laura,

I started a GFG this year and for the life of me I cant find the pieces. I wasn't too far along so that's OK I guess. I'm hand piecing with Inklingo as I don't care for English paper piecing.

But Sweetie, you know as well as I do that when you've gone home you'll find just the perfect project for that line of fabric you loved but passed up and when you get back to the quilt shop, there won't be any of that fabric left and then what will you do? You don't want to be on E-bay buying that fabric! So, buy what you like and I pray that God will let all my fellow quilters live till they've used up their stash.
