    Hi Everyone,
    My name is Sharon and I live in the Southern California area. I am a beginning quilter. I have always had an interest in quilting because of my grandma's influence. I just never had the motivation to tackle a project, but in the last few years I have become very interested in quilting. I am a 1st grade teacher, and also like to read in my spare time.

    I like to make quilt tops, but I am not sure how to start quilting once I get the sandwich together. Any hints for a beginner?

    Thank you! I am looking forward to talking with all of you!

    I have made tied quilts or hand quilted ones for a long time, but am just learning to machine quilt myself. No hints from me except practice practice practice. And pin a lot.

    There are some pretty good tutorials on sites like youtube. For me it helps to watch someone.

    Oh- and welcome aboard! This is a great site with a very welcoming group of quilters!
