I've learned a lot about my project just from reading all the great posts here! What a wealth of info!
About me....60 yr old male...been sewing since I was about 9, playing around with my mom's new Kenmore with all the cams to make different designs! By the time I was 14 I started making my own clothes.
The last 30 years have mostly been in the home dec arena, pillows, curtains, upholstery, and my favorite, top treatments for classic windows.
I've made a few quilts, but mostly crib quilts or pillows, and did the quilting by machine. Now I am ready to tackle my first full size hand-quilted quilt.
I will be asking questions soon, as the project is in progress and I have just started the quilting.
Thanks for all the help you have given me, and will continue to give.
