Online need

It's truly amazing what you can find online I went on Flickr and found a group that did a scrappy be trip around the world so I thought OK I might be able to do that so I signed up matching seems still a little bit of an issue for me but I had a great time doing it-hope might be buddies like their blocks!

One more to go

Thoughts on quilting

Why do I quilt?  Why do I spend serious money on a sewing machine that could be a house payment or two?  What makes quilting fabric different than the fabric in the big box stores?  Why do I buy so much?

I will attempt to answer these questions....and more!

I like the idea of creating something, sometimes with guidance (and a pattern) sometimes just whatever comes to mind.

I started with an inexpensive machine from Walmart.  I did not know that a craftsman (or woman) needs a good set of tools for quilting, just like anyone who creates starts off with basic items and then as their skills increase, so does the quality of their toolbox.  I managed to purchase a used Bernina on sale.  From the time I started using it, I loved it.  It was as though I had gone from a VW to a Lamborghini.......

I have attended quilting classes, joined a quilting group and found a whole new world!
