Hey and wanted to say:
THIS is my new favorite forum!
I can't wait to get my first ever very own sewing machine. I am looking at them now. I already have a quilt decided on. It will be a Dora quilt for my grandson's half sister. She loves Dora and I found the fabric and just knew I had to get it to make her a quilt for Christmas.
I used watch both of my grandmothers while they were quilting and even helped one of my grams make a quilt she made by hand. I loved it. I MISS quilting and her. There is something to be said to sit at a quilt frame with someone you care about and make something by hand.
I can't wait to make my first quilt all by myself, the only problem I see is once I start I may not be able to stop!
