Are any of you doing the shop hop? If so have you seen the St. Marks Lighthouse and could tell me which shop has it? It is very special to me as I used to volunteer there. Thanks!Continue

Suzzi, good luck with your class. Once you finish you will be amazed at how easy it is and how it makes 'hard blocks' simple to make. i.e. stars, New York Beauty, etc.

Hi Ethelda, welcome to the Florida Quilters Group.  I just received and email from www.craftsy.com that there is a new beginner paper piecing class.  I think I'll sign up and give it a go... the class covers 4 different block patterns.

I became a transplanted Floridian a year ago. Came here for the great weather and NO SNOW. lolol Have been quilting for a few years now and that is what takes priority over cleaning and cooking. It is a good thing that hubby likes to eat out.  For Suzzi, I love paper piecing. Please give it a try. Start simple and you will love it.

I have not done paper piecing as of yet, but I do want to give it a go as well.  I just have so many pressing projects that need to get done.  Please send pics and let me know what you think of this technique... I've talked with several quilters and census is either you really like it or you don't... it's definitely a personal preference.

I'm a transplanted Florida Quilter been quilting 30+ years, art quilter 20 but recently discovered the traditionalism again. So now my brain is in full twist on the traditional quilts.

We became empty nesters in 2010, we still have 2 puggles at home.... they are 1 and 2 yrs old....long time before they head off to college!!! HaHa.  My daughters room has become my sewing room overflow... not that I'm complaining though.  It's amazing how much 'STUFF' we accumulate as quilts wouldn't you agree?  My husband and I try to go to St. Augustine at least once a year.... love the area. 

Are you familiar with the "Groups", I joined the following 2 groups and I'm having a great time meeting everyone. 
 - Batik Strip Swap Group
 - Charm Swap Group >>> New group spawned from the Batik Group.

You should check these groups out... you send in 12 2 1/2" strips and/or 6-5" charm squares of a specific color collection, everyone that participates in the swap receives a surprise collection fabric back in return.

Hi Suzzi, I have only been quilting a few years since my last chick flew the nest...I really never really thought of the "empty nest" syndrome until then lol.. I have always loved the idea of making quilts and I find it very relaxing and quite rewarding when I finish one.  I live in NE Florida, a few miles outside of Jacksonville..I really don't have many LOS near me so I am always looking for them when I travel..My current project is a "star quilt" for my mother-in-law.  What are you currently working on..

Hi Kitty, I have been quilting for 10+ years, I've been sewing since I was a young girl... As I have told all my new friends here with ASQ.... My quilting is my escape from reality... it is truly my Zen.  I'm located in SW Florida.... where about are you located.
