Hello all, I am totally new to QCA. My dear friend Kris introduced my to the site . We've gotten together with some of the quilters from here and I loved their beautiful work. I have always lived in southern Maine. Traveled up and down the east coast but never been out west. Would like to go to Alaska some day. I have a wonderful husband and two sons that I am very proud of. I got my first sewing machine when I was eight. Been sewing since. I've done mostly small projects. This week I am starting to do mystery quilt # 5.I have already checked out the work that many of you have done. I love all that has been shared. Really looking forward to this experience.
