"I found big plastic bags at the Dollar Tree that are about 15x15, very good for large projects. Using pinch or clamp type skirt hangers they can be hung in a closet so it is easy to see whats in them instead of stacking or storing in…"
"I can't believe those nice neat sewing rooms. So organized!! Since being here inVirginia I have almost no space and lots of "stuff". I have half of a small bedroom and it has my cutting table which has three drawers…"
"Riana, so sorry about your friends,I feel their pain. We were like that after the hurricane and it's a very helpless feeling. All our friends and neighbors were in the same boat but we kept it afloat helping one another. No…"
"Elizabeth, I know what you mean about an aching back. When I started quilting I sandwiched them on the floor. I couldn't do that now, would need to rent a crane to get me up. I don't think Hubby could get me up now …"
"You girls started talking about paper piecing and got me off course again. I remembered a project begun a year or two ago and dug it out. Please, please stop mentioning other projects. I had my second quarter all mapped out, every…"
"You gals are going back and forth complementing each other, I just want to say every thing you all do is very nice. I have gotten so much from just looking at your work. I had never even thought of doing a back with orphan blocks and…"
"Kris your french braid is gorgeous. I have one that just needs the border but it doesn't have the squares in the points. I used patriotic scraps for the braids. My Great Grandson is a Patriots fan so I'm using a wide…"

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been quilting for about 20 years, I am retired from hotel management. I have a lot of time on my hands, due to some health problems I am not as active as I once was. I do belong to my local guild, local Project Linus group and block of the month at my local quilt shop. I have 7 children, 16 grandchildren and 14 great grands. They keep me pretty busy making quilts, etc. None of them live near us so I do miss that. I love to see what other quilters are doing and I also like to do some swaps, thats always fun.
How many quilts have you made?
Lost count a long time ago
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
LOve making then and enjoy them both

What is your favorite quilting technique?
I am a hand quilter, I enjoy traditional and historic best but have done some modern.
Why do you quilt?
Because I love to, it's my way of being creative and the people I give them to enjoy them and that gives me great satisfaction

Gail, feel free to take part in all the discussions. Sometime in January I will be asking to see who wants to participate next year. Then I send out questionnaires. Secret Santa sisters will be assigned usually in April. Then you have all year to work on things for your SS box. We mail them out around the first Saturday in December.
This year we had a couple of contests. There are discussions all year trying to find answers to questions that maybe weren't on the questionnaires. We post tutorials for gift ideas. We have general discussions too.
So welcome to the group. Take part so we can get to know you for next year!
