Hello from Fargo ND  where the winters are cold and the wind blows so hard that fences are known to fall over.

Look for us in the news come spring time when the snow melts and the Red River rises causing major flooding. There's a 50% chance this will surpass the major flood of 2009.

I've finished my daughters  tee shirt quilt for Christmas followed with a couple of canvas bags and quiver case for our 4-H club. Now I'm looking at mariner compass patterns for my next challenge. 

I'm so excited to interact with fellow quilters via internet to keep me inspired.

Welcome Colleen!   I'm from Iowa, so not too far away.   Be sure to check out all the groups and the show-n-tell.  There's a lot of inspiration there.   Sitting reading the threads is a great way to pass way a cold winter evening.  It's a great group of people here too.   I also appreciate your sunflower picture - think spring!

Hello from Minnesota, Colleen, where on this winter night it will be dipping to 24 below, so they say.

Let's hope for your river that it is a slow thaw this spring.

Stay warm, and happy quilting!

Welcome to the group.  We love meeting new folks and hearing about their quilting and lives.  Don't envy your living in ND....too much winter for me.

Welcome to QCA, Colleen! I'm in Iowa and it's supposed to get 15 below zero tonight, with wind chill putting it at 30 below. So I know you know what I'm talking about:) 

We look forward to seeing some of your creations--I just finished a T-shirt quilt for my daughter -in-law; I'd be interested to see the ones you've made--maybe post a few pictures in the gallery? 

 

Glad you're here!

brrr I grew up in Iowa and do not miss the bitter winters. That being said Welcome to the group Colleen! I really like the Mariner's Compass but believe it will be a long time before I try to tackle that project. Have you been quilting for long? I just started teaching myself to sew/quilt.

Welcome Colleen

When my husband was out of work he applied for a job pu your way - I am glad he did not get it.  As far as I am concerned Iowa is cold enough.

I hope you enjoy all your new quilting friends!

Hi Colleen! It is so nice to meet you. I currently live in Nashville, however, I will be moving back to Florida shortly. I can only imagine how cold it is where you are..lol..we got about w to 2 inches of snow in Nashville today and the whole town shut down lol. I have been quilting only for about 4 months now, however, this site has been extremely helpful and a load of fun. Please join us in the 'groups' for enjoyable projects or just jump in wherever you want...it is nice to have you here.

Colleen:
Hello from Fargo ND  

Welcome Colleen, I have a friend that recently moved to your neck of the woods and boy is she suffering from culture shock...I laugh at her ALOT!!!

Colleen:
I've finished my daughters  tee shirt quilt

Please don't say that too loud you will cause my DD to start her rant about the fact that hers is not done (or started for that matter).

Colleen:
I'm looking at mariner compass patterns for my next challenge. 

That is quite a jump...from T-Shirt quilt to Mariner's Compass, I have to assume you have been quilting for a while.

Please share pics of your treasures if you are so inclined. Oh and we love to see pics of sewing spaces no matter how big/small messy/clean we love them all - not that we are nosey/curious just friendly....ok we are nosey!!!  LOL
