I am just beginning my new adventure in learning how to quilt. Have not purchased any books, patterns, etc. Just tried to glean info from here and quilters blogs. Anywho.......stayed up till midnight last night working on a place mat. Did ok till it was time to bind. Ended up tearing off the binding and going to bed very much ready to give up on quilting. I can make sushi for dh, but quilting isn't going so well for me! I have included pictures as proof! Think I just need more patience?
