I just found a link to the site today, and had to sign up after looking around Smiley

I've only been quilting and sewing since last June, but I'm in love...

My mom has always sewn, quilted, crocheted, knit, etc, and always wanted to teach me, but I didn't want to learn.  Until recently.  Now I don't want to stop!

I started by looking for help finding a local quilting group through facebook.  They directed me to the Senior Center, where a group meets every Monday.  When I called for info, the director warned me that the ladies "can get a little wild" but everyone is welcome and to come check them out.  So, at 38, I'm now the youngest "regular" (I go whenever I have a the day off).  Our oldest just turned 101!

Looking forward to browsing through all the boards and getting ideas, finding patterns/tutorials, and finding new people to share my hobby with.  Figured I'd kind of "introduce myself" first!

Stuff I do, or try to do...

Hand piece and quilt (have finished one baby quilt, and almost finished a second)

Machine piece and quilt (so much faster-- I've completed about 10 quilts this way, and have one just-over-queen size top I need to get quilted)

Crochet (I can make a huge granny square...)

Sew (I've made one shirt and an apron.  There will be many more aprons in my future as I have a bit of an obsession with them.  Also pj pants, hot pads, stockings, coin purses, small bags, and other small projects.)

Woodworking (mostly taking a break from this as it's not portable enough, but someday I will have a nice wood shop.)

When I was very young I lived in a rural area and the only crafters to be had were the old ladies at the church. They met twice a week and were pleased as punch to have me but man alive those ladies were weird. I had been making very small quilt tops with scraps but they introduced me to my first full sized real scrap quilt. I got a lot of good sewing experiences from them.

... man alive those ladies were weird.

you haven't said how far away you are now from "very young."
i wonder if the old ladies would still seem weird.  lol

me?
i've been quilting for about 20 years, but have been weird since birth.  lol

I dabble in quilting, mostly small art pieces & very simple tshirt quilt/blanket/duvet covers, if those count.
Fully immersed in weirdness though. It's a lifestyle Cheesy.

Uh, yeah, a t-shirt quilt would totally count! I haven't made one yet, but I want to make one with my kids' soccer jersey's when they no longer play, as well as "fire shirts" my FIL brought back from fires when he was on the national response team as one of the IT guys. The big fires had t-shirts made with their names and locations, pic.

I just started quilting last year. I, also, tend to do more of the smaller mini quilts, but I did make a larger "Modern Foxes" quilt that I believe I posted on here last summer.  I like quilting because it is such a creative outlet!
