Hi, Neighbor. Thanks for reaching out. I am fairly new to this new adventure of quilting. Are you involved in any of the local guilds? I have not ventured into that area. I've taken a couple of classes at Nuts 'N Bolts. I quilt using the domestic free-motion method, and I'm envious of your longarm machine.
Hi Linda! I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon. I joined this site at the end of April and I'm really enjoying myself. Everyone is so friendly and helpful! It took me a few weeks to figure everything out; it was confusing to me at first because I've never been to a site like this before.
I've been quilting for almost 6 years and have made a lot of quilts to make up for lost time...I never learned to sew and it was a fluke that I made a quilt. I was 45. After I finished that first one I was hooked! I made them for all of my family members and now I mainly quilt to donate and sell. I enjoy donating to children's charities; I love using bright and kiddie fabrics.
