Hi everyone, I am new to this site, just heard about it yesterday at my quilt shop from mother-in-law. When she told me about it I was real excited. I am a new quilter just 1 year and it seems that this is all I do any more is quilt I love it. I would be interested in block exchange or fq exchanges or just good quilting talk. Thanks for letting me be a part of this group.

Welcome Barbara! Keep an eye out for our swaps-we like doing block swaps and have just finished one so I'm betting there will be a new one coming along soon.

Hey everyone, this lady is awesome when it comes to selling me fabric. she's a very sweet lady and when I showed her my block swap I did before Katrina she was hooked. I'm counting on you all to swamp her with swaps. :nah: :nah: :up: :up: All kidding aside, she's as hooked as the rest of us with quilting. I'm counting on you all to make her happy.

Barbara, welcome to our group. You are going to find these ladies the best. I'm going to have to bring my quilt to the shop so you can see the one they all pitched in and made me after Katrina. Then you'll see just how great they really are.

Ladies I've been bragging on all of you as you can see. Hugs to all of you. :love:

No MO you all of you can live up to that bar and beyond. You've shown me it too many times. All the bragging I've done at the quilt shop about all my buddies on here once she gets on here and starts posting she'll see really quick how good it is to be a part of this site.

By the way, Bren comes here on Monday I can't wait!!!!!!!!! I'm going to take her shopping too. :shock: :bg:
