    Crafter that is New to Quilting

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Josie and I live in Chattanooga TN. I'm very new to Quilting. I Knit and Crochet and met a lovely lady at church who told me she belongs to a Quilting group that meets once a week to make a quilt that is given to charity when finished. I'd always wanted to learn to quilt so I accepted her offer of checking it out. I've so far been twice and have helped out with the quilt they have in progress. I was given a little bit of scrap fabric to play with and I'm looking to learn how to make one of my own.

    The block that I was shown how to do is a scrap 9 square block. I don't really know the name they gave me one block already made to use as a pattern. I've been watching youtube videos and reading different blogs to learn more. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone here and having fun learning.

    Thanks,

    Josie

    A big welcome from the SHO-ME state - Missouri. You are probably working on a 9-patch - a very easy quilt block for a beginner!

    Welcome from south Louisiana. The 9-patch was my first quilt block when I joined the local guild in July. Were you shown the easy way to do it?

    Welcome from New York . I bet you will be a great quilter.
