Wanting to be a quilter all my life, I finally took the plunge last summer and bought a used, but like new Janome. I took a few glasses which, so far, has resulted in 4, unfinished quilt tops. I've already purchased the fabric for my next project! I'm hoping to learn to machine quilt, but after taking a class, I learned that I will need to practice, practice, practice. I joined QCA in July 2011and have already learned so much ffom all of you who have posted. I just wish that I had learned to quilt a long time ago as there are so many projects I have lined up in my head that I want to create. I had no idea how challenging and fun this is, not to mention the great people I've met and will meet along my quilting journey.
