I am a new quilter, and boy am I glad I found this forum! I started a couple years ago just making baby blankets for friends. Last year was my biggest project to date. I made my sister a graduation quilt in which all blocks were hand embroidered by me. I completely underestimated the how long that would take!
So now I am venturing out and wanting to try new things. Such as quilts with actual patterns and such to them. I just celebrated my 7th anniversary with my husband, who is very understanding about my ever growing stashes of fabric, and my need to just hit Joann's or Fabric Depot just to check things out!
