    Hi Dan.
    A local quilt or fabric store should be able to help you pick out some cotton fabrics that would be good for a beginner. Coordinated collections or jelly rolls are expensive, but an easy place to start.
    How big a project are you planning - lap, twin, or king size? How many colors do you plan to use? A lap quilt takes about a yard total of fabric, a king takes 7 yards or so.
    Post some pictures as you go; we would love to see them.
    Cheers!

    I would recommend the walking foot because your stitches will all be the same length. If you use the free motion foot, your stitches might be all different lengths. The walking foot will also help move the quilt along while you're doing it. Good luck!

    These are fabulous! I have been looking for medium tan colored ric-rac for the outer crust but can't find any. Love yours with light tan and now I want to make some!

    There is a company called Paper Pieces that makes pre-cut card stock for English Paper Piecing. (It is in Paducah, KY). If you go to their website, paper pieces.com, type diamonds into the search, there are all types of diamond papers. You will need to know the angle of the diamond.

    I would like to get in touch with you about this musical quilt. I just made a t-shirt quilt and am trying to help my girlfriend make a musical quilt for her grandson. She loves this pattern but hate the idea of trying to figure out how it was made...I would love to get in touch with you.
    Thanks

    I have had brown spots. Usually on white. But when iron is slightly dirty. The spots have always washed out. I love Best Press for its lightness but have gone back to reg. starch.

    Check out Missouri Quilt Company online. They have collections that coordinate. If your son has a special interest, you can search fabrics by that. Also, you could email or call them--they are wonderful people and I'm sure they could help you. Their fabrics are very good quality and flat shipping rate of $5 unless you spend $100, then it's free. Best of luck!
