Hi Erna:  Love, Love all your quilts

Hi Erna, so far as I can tell, its possible but it could leave me in worst condition so they are, for now, doing steroid shots, I'm being treated in Bedford at the Neuro-Spine Inst.,

after many years (10) of seeing only Concord Dr,s and being Rx. drugs, I just made up my mind to take my health into my own hands and I'm glad!!! Now I can sit a little longer for my quilts....

Hi Erna, I'm located in Pembroke situated between Concord and Manchester. Keene is about 1.5 hrs from my home, thanks so much for the invite.

Hi everyone, been very busy with my paper piecing and practicing FMQ. I have however made a few baby quilts for my great granddaughters. New Hampshire is my home State and proud to be a member of the Granite State.

hi...was doing a search in discussions for a group comment, found this

http://myquiltplace.com/forum/topics/farmers-wife-sample-quilt

she is still a member here, also a member on the board.

i have followed some of the links...much fun this is one i am enjoying...i am thinking w all these great pics i may not have to buy the book? :))

if you go to the above discussion, scroll down to see photo of a completed fws by "grammasal" ..beautiful and different from all i've seen.

that last link was messed up in her post. finally found the site ..haven't tried using it yet. but it appears that if you post a pic then choose a color pallet you like it will change colors of pic you posted. and you can save. i think this looks like a great way to help visualize personal color choices for quilts we see pics of but don't care for color choices of original maker. link to site....

Hi Erna,

Do you remember the first time that you were at QBL?  We had rooms near each other.  And if I am not mistaken, we stayed over the week-end for another session the next week.  I was taking 3 Nancy Martin 1 day workshop and over the week-end I worked on a Shoo Fly and Stars quilt.

I was at QBL for 18 years and then, when it began to change I started going to Paul Smith's for North Adirondack Quilt Camp.  I went there until it folded.  Now, I am a member of the Borderline Quilters Guild which has monthly meetings in Canton, New York. 

I have photos of my quilts on My Place - my page with My Quilt Place.

hi erna, welcome back! so many join, post a few pics and drift away. it can take a lot of time keeping up w activites and comments in a place as active as mqp, and some really, i think, had different expectations. but a social networking site for quilters is, i think such a great idea. i have found a couple of them. joined another before i found mqp. both great, but i just seem to spend more time here at mqp than elsewhere. time thing for me too, i can't play all the time, and a quick jaunt thru here in the a.m. or evening allows me to keep up & keep in touch. so...again...welcome back!

Hi Erna,

A hearty welcome to MQP., hope you enjoy meeting up with us, and that you will be posting photo's of your work from time to time.   I'm new to quilting but have  quickly fallen under the spell of fabric and the need to buy it and play with it.

Cait
