  2. New to Quilting

    Hi! I am new to quilting. I have helped my grandma sew stamped embroidered blocks, but haven't really done anything else before.

  5. Advice on New Jersey Quilt Shops please?

    by , 04-12-2014 at 04:54 PM
    I will be traveling to southern New Jersey and then on to Lancaster County, PA in late June. If you live in or near these areas do you have a favorite quilt or fabric shop? I really need your advice as I have never been to either of these areas and have no idea where to start. Also, any must see places? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.....Judi from Denver.

  6. Quilt as you go

I want to try quilt as you go but I don't want to hand stitch the back or add sashing so this seemed like a good alternative. Thanks!
