Hi everyone. My name is Kelle...I'm from Georgia and I'm getting ready to start my first quilt. I "helped" my grandmother quilt a little when I was a child, and have always been interested in the art. I always thought I needed a sewing machine, so have held off on getting started. I finally decided to take the plunge. If our foremothers could quilt for hundreds of years without sewing machines, so can I!
I've bought some Christmas fabric to make a lap quilt for my mom. It's just going to be a simple 6" block quilt. I'm a bit nervous, but the fabric has been washed and dried and I'm eager to get started. Now to iron it and start tracing the template. Wish me luck! I'm looking forward to getting to know the folks on this board.
