Just wanted to touch base with all of you.  I see that Nana, Leslie, Annette and Kris are listed as part of the group.  Are we missing anyone?  Anyone else want to join us?  I have to clean my studio today and spend the rest of the weekend working on purses (a local shop wants to sell them).  I work Monday morning, but I will post again sometime Monday.

Hi Pat,

Hand quilting is on my "Bucket List" but I will not be able to join in until I return from my Florida vacation in April.  I will keep reading the posts so I'll know what's going on and then hopefully I could catch up in April.  BTW will you be making house calls with the lessons?  LOL

Hi, Marie--

Hope you are enjoying your vacation.  Keep in touch and chime in whenever.  No house calls, but if you are ever in the Ames, IA area-----

Nice to hear from you, Kris.  I hope those who haven't been active lately will find time to share the journey with us.

Hi, Pat!

I have not been on here for a long time, but I am a "member" of this group and hope to find time to be online again soon. I do read postings that come to my email regularly, whether I go to the site or not.

Thank you so much for taking on this group.  I have really enjoyed taking up hand quilting.  I never thought it would be something that I would ever do...LOL>

Susie--

Nice to hear from you.  It's been a long time since I've hand quilted and I had intended to get back to it.  This group will get me going again.  Look foward to hearing your tips, etc. soon.

Hello Handquilters

Started a note about a minute ago and lost it.  Am a little computter challenged.  I quilt with a group weekly (Ft. Calhoun Quilters) in a very small town in NE.  Have been following your discussion and finally got enough courage to join.  Don't be afraid to hand quilt.  I quilted at least a year before I pieced a top.

Barbara--

We are now the "Hand Piecing &/or Hand Quilting Group".  I would like to know what method of hand piecing you use--I put a question out to the group on Friday.  Hope you will check it out and add your comments there.  Glad to hear from you and looking forward to your input over at "Hand Piecing &/or Hand Quilting" soon!
