Hi Paula, welcome.  Looks like you'll fit right in here, I love your avatar, we're animal lovers.  If it's not too much of a rush, we're doing a Mystery Quilt, MQ7, right now, check it out, Nana said it's a real quick and easy one and could be done by Christmas for a present.

My avatar is my Jake.  It was a Monday morning before I was leaving for work and I could identify with how he looked!   I am from around the Akron area of Ohio.  Thanks for the warm welcome! I will also check out MQ7 along with all the other fun stuff I've found so far here.

Hi, fellowor sister quilters, I am Anna Joffrion from Houston, TX.  I began quilting 1980.  I was living in Topeka, Kansas, at the time; Topeka is  hot-bed of quilters.  My first mini-quilt was an Amish striped purple and navy.  I quilted this quilt,because of its very small size, 3 ft. by 5 ft.  It looked great to me.  Since that inreoduction, I have lived in Baton Rouge, LA., and Houston, TX.  There are quilters everywhere I have lived.  My son has a queen-size quilt for his bed, and now he wants another quilt like a French braid. He is to tell me his colors after I finish a throw for me.  Quilters are great people!

By the way what is the name of the gadget used to compare fabrics that work together.  You use this gadget to look through, similar to a kind of glass gadget.  the user gets an idea of how these fabrics will look from a distance.

Could you help me out here?  Anna Joffrion
