"Hey, girls don't feel real sorry for Rosemary and those stupid drapes. She could have stayed here with me in Florida and run the roads, but no, she went back to Michigan. Now she's made me miserable, she hasn't set foot in…"
"You girls are way ahead of me. Carla your blocks are beautiful. I am not great at applique at all, just big pieces. I have got to try something more complicated but not 12 blocks! Right now I am hooked on hexagons I have no idea…"
"Your QOV quilts are beautiful. We have a Vets Nursing Home here locally in Panama City. Every bed in that facility has a quilt made by our guild and it is a never ending project. The quilts belong to each individual resident and…"
"Love the Churn Dash, Elizabeth. I'm a big fan of traditional quilts, that is what quilting always was to me. Having said that, I admire art quilts and all the modern quilts that have come to be in recent years. I'm still…"
"March 20 is fine with me. How many do I need? I'm catching up now after the Christmas rush. I hand quilt and usually quilt large throws or smaller with a hoop in my lap and larger on a frame. I have one sandwiched…"

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.

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!
