My First Quilt!
I have been lurking here for a while, and I just had to thank you all for everything I have learned to equip me to start my first quilt. One of the first posts I read was what came up on a search for beginning quilting (or something like that), a post with a list of basic information and suggestions on what to do to get started.
One of the suggestions was to just try some blocks, which I did, and also to check out Quilt U. I have taken their sample class and anticipate I'll take others as I'm able.
My first quilt is a pretty simple picnic quilt to give to my son and daughter-in-law for their first anniversary, which is coming up very soon. I was so tempted to answer to the "Are you quilting this weekend" thread but hoped maybe this post would reach more of you, and you have all helped me to get started. So thank you - you are a wealth of information!
