Don't remember how long I've been on rctq, seems like forever, but can't
more than 5 years maybe -that's how long we've had email! DH the
ever-helpful and enthusiastic computer geek (self-taught, it's scary)
discovered newsgroups and decided it would be a good way to "convert" me.
I stay here because I can't imagine life without you!
Quilting -well, it all started back in the 70s with a pile of very random
fabric scraps from making clothes for my baby girls. A bit of
everything -all weights of cotton, some wool, synthetics, you name it. So
with the good intention of using up this stuff, and without benefit of any
advice, I cut them all into rectangles and sewed them together in rows
I had a baby quilt. Covered all the seams with a backing (birthed) and
pleased with myself. Looked pretty good until the first wash. Then I had
throw it out.
There had to be a better way... I found a book (something from Simplicity
patterns) and persevered. I still love scrappy quilts, and they don't fall
apart in the wash any more!

Im recovering well... certain things coming in the mail keep my spirits
thank you muchly! But the days linger long sometimes. I havent energy to
much yet, but you, yes YOU, have the power to entertain and amuse me if
feel like it, and I hope you do...
Would you please tell me how you came to post at RCTQ, and why you stay,
how you came to be a quilter and what you hope to find in your quilting
future. Maybe everyone else will get some pleasure in reading these ..
I wont feel so selfish! lol
Thanks in advance,
