I have just found and joined this group. I am a recent convert to quilting, having just started quilting last Fall.

I saw a pair of pillow shams, loved them, said "I can do that" and off I went.

So far I have made two pillow shams, a scaldino [Italian for foot warmer], one king size quilt [being quilted by someone else], and several small quilts.

I retired from a gov't job, started a drapery business and after 10 years of that closed my business. I started feeling the need for fabric, saw the shams and I was hooked.

The quilt pictured in my avatar is one I made taking a class that I found out about at my first quilt guild meeting. I joined the guild and am having a great time.

Time to go to bed now I just wanted to pop in and say hello.
