    Hi and welcome from Texas.
    Like everyone else has said.. get familiar with your sewing machine first. I'd suggest making a pillow case. That would be a good way to master a straight stitch. My first quilt was rail-fence. And that was last October. You can have fun with this craft.

    Hi from East TN! I really can't add any better advice than what's been said! Learning about your machine will make things much easier. Buying a charm pack of fabric and sewing the squares together is great practice for getting a true 1/4 inch seam and matching corners, and you'll have a nice wall hanging or baby size quilt when you're done.

    Welcome from Ohio, Try a Crazy Quilt.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Hello Linda!
    Welcome from Minnesota!
    Take some classes! They will help you get accustomed to your machine and the tools you need WHILE you learn!!
    Have fun!
