    Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Melissa. It has been my home for more years than I care to raevel. I’ve lived on both sides of the mountains, and if you get too water-logged, come east. We quilt on the east side too. I like the flying geese project. Chain piecing certainly does speed up the process of assembling many parts for a whole. I came upon your blog through Bellaonline out of New Zealand and Australia. Keep stitching.
