Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I just moved from AZ to TX and I miss my quilt group there...still looking for one here. Besides quilting I love to crochet, and have tried my hand at jewelry making. I'm married 24 years to a wonderful man, have 3 children, 2 step children, 16 total grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild.

Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?

still looking for that one.
Why do you quilt?
Because I enjoy it and the fellowship with other quilters
Hi Judith, welcome to Texas and the Fort Worth area... I have a few friends that I get together with and we go to quilt retreats... will keep you in mind for any in the future. otherwise, I do not know of any quilting groups, I think there is one at a church in Keller or North Richland Hills so I will try to find out more details for you (I do not go because I am usually at work during the day). There is a New cute little quilt store in Saginaw off Main street behind the Pizza Hut (I think) that is called Sew So Easy - and the owner is so nice - maybe she will know of some groups in the area...my only other suggestion is to check out the Fort Worth Quilt Guild... good luck finding a group
Hi Judith. I am just getting started with quilting....I find I keep buying supplies --- even a new machine -- and so far --- haven't made any progress with "quilting!" Got computers backed up and accounts balanced and laundry done today --- but still didn't get to play at my machine today! Soon though! Soon! I am on the other side of the metroplex!
Hi Judith. Photos are a great way to personalize your quilts. I made a quilt for a great grandson with photos of his favorite toys. I use a roll of fabric with a paper backing that is compatible with an inkjet printer. You can find this product on your computer. Cut the roll in 11" lengths (it comes 8 1/2" wide,) and weigh it down to flatten it out. Find a picture you like on your computer, make the colors in the picture more vivid (you lose some color in the process,) print it out, let it set for 10 mins then put it in cool water for 10 mins, pull off the paper backing, let it dry, and you have a picture ready for your quilt. You can also sew clear plastic the size of your photo onto the quilt and just slip in a picture. Have fun with the process.
