  5. Hi Joni, I'm also a nurse, but live in Alaska.  Nothing like quilting to help me relax!  I'm very glad to have this group to fill the gap while our guilds and groups can't meet in person!

  6. I'm doing the same thing -- working to quilt a lap on my standard machine so I thought, oh, there are a bunch of videos from the OPC that I haven't listened too...now here I am completing my profile and roaming through the IAQ site.  So much to look at  -- so many quilts, so little time!

     

  7. Donation quilt blocks in the mail ... now on to my sandwich-ing my donation baby quilts so I can practice some machine quilting techniques with my sewing walking foot  ...wish me luck !!!

      My mask wore out!  The elastic has started coming apart.   I washed it  by hand sometimes and always dryed by hanging up.  Going to try to attach new elastic.  I used flat 1/4 inch - all that was available.

I sewed a casing on either side and used a cord lock to make it adjustable and fit comfortably snug 

      Also used some elastic cord  I found in the hair accessories section of the drug store when I couldn’t find elastic for sale anywhere!!! (It must have been hiding out with the Rolls of toilet paper!!! LOL 😝)

  24. Hi everyone! My name is Mary Ann and I am a retired teacher in Georgia.  I have been retired 5 years. As I sat at home I decided that I wanted a hobby so I started quilting.  Since then, I have 2 machines, loads of fabric and many UFOs.  I want to get busy, learn some things, use up a lot of my stash, and quilt instead of just buying fabric and dreaming! I am really excited about joining  this group. I hope to learn a lot of new, fun things about this hobby of mine and make some beautiful things along the way.

      Hi Maryann🌺Aloha from Hawaii! I’m JanDee and it looks like we both joined IAQ about the same time❤️ Working my way through all the fun stuff on the IAQ website... and I hopped in headfirst into the Mystery Quilt last week - so much fun!!!  Just wanted to reach out to a fellow newbie!

      Here’s a photo of my almost completed  Mystery Quilt blockBB92F441-0F2A-4DE2-9D07-DB780B95A65B.thumb.jpeg.67e0b605b6b9707191eb3412c349c66a.jpeg

  25. Love quilting in all it’s aspects.  Biggest goal, is to finish projects before letting another start.  

    If I’m not physically working on a quilt, I’m usually reading a quilt book whether techniques, styles or fiction.

      Hi Karen, Aloha from Hawaii! I’m JanDee and just joined IAQ last week after the Orphan  Project Challenge  last month. I’m still going through all the goodies on the IAQ WEBSITE and did manage to jump in headfirst into the Mystery Quilt  project last Tuesday-Friday — I didn’t want to miss out on the last sewing bee of the year !!! It is such a fun project and I learned some new techniques I had never tried before like fabric paper piecing and using the mile a minute method to build quilt blocks. Below is a photo of my almost finished block❤️ Just wanted to reach out to a fellow newbie ❤️

  26. I am new to this site and just trying to learn the ropes. I am staying safe with my 14 year old Delilah. She lost her litter mate last year and is now very dependent. When Samson and Delilah were together, I could leave them at home without a puppy sitter. But now, she appears to be very fearful; so she is my constant companion. She has her spot on the sewing desk, so I have to limit the size of my project. I have been quilting about 20 years but still consider myself able to learn from just about any place. I am working on lap quilts for everyone who is helping with my father. He is unable to stay alone so my brother and my father's wife's family are taking turns being with him. He is 102 and looking forward to next year. I am also making masks for my family and friends. I am the proud mother of 6 children, grandmother of 16 bio-grandkids and a total of around 25. I have 26 great-grand-kids and looking forward to the next generation (but not for a while, kids are in college or working and need to get their lives going). You can see why I am called "Gramma Charlie". I just turned 80 and looking forward to the next 30 or so years. I have so many quilts to do, St. Peter said I needed to get most of them done first. So I am going to be here a long time. Thanks for listening and we will keep in touch.
