    Greetings from Buffalo, New York! Our snow is starting to melt, and I can see patches of grass. No boots - yay!!

    I'm a beginning quilter. I have made a puffy "biscuit" square purse years ago, and made one cat block square for a wall hanging.

    Have two cousins expecting soon (a boy in June and a girl in July) and want to try making them baby quilts. but have no design or fabric chosen as of yet.

    I did order some Insul Bright, a craft size batting, and a FQ that has cheater squares printed on it and will practice quilting a few potholders for now.

    If they don't turn out well, I plan to stick with puffy square quilts for the babies. Or, I saw rag quilts, they look cute, too.

    Well, just wanted to say hi and explain what I'm up to for now.
    Happy sewing!

    Hello, and welcome from Missouri! All our snow is gone!
    I like biscuit quilts for babies, especially if you make them with pairs of blocks so they can match them as they get older, or like I Spy quilts for them to pick out all the goodies. Have fun with them!

    So glad that you joined us :D:D:D

    There had been some discussion here on rag quilts not being good for babies...they can chew on them and strings can come loose :wink:
