Merry Christmas to everyone. I'm a new quilter although I learned to sew when I was about 12. I haven't sewn for years. I received from my husband's in-laws a wooden coffee box with quite a few old dresses from his aunts and grandmother. He & I spent the past several months tearing them apart. I've got them in plastic bags in a large box. Searched for a suitable method of using them over that time. I've decided on a Cathedral Quilt (although I do realize it's not a traditional quilt). I've made a quick quilt (all machine made) for my husband's uncle & a scrappy quilt for my uncle for this Christmas. I'm assuming the Cathedral will be about a 2 year project & give me some hand work for evenings & when I sit in doctor's offices', etc.
I'm looking forward to learning more with the forums & the newsletters.
