I just joined and am looking forward to this quilting group. I live in Idaho. Started learning how to make quilts off and on 10 years ago. All that I have learned about quilts are from books (library) or magazines. My grandmother use to do all the family quilting and my mother and me use to help cut out pieces for her to quilt. Back then we didn't worry about straight of the grain or on the bias and old timey quilts showed this. My first quilt was a appliqued butterfly quilt which took me 1 1/2yrs to complete as I did this in my spare time. Besides the Butterfly quilt, I have made Friendship Star, Pinwheel, Bear Claw and several Scrappy(love these) quilts. This winter I have made 6 doll quilts of different sizes. I would love to do the Oak Leaves quilt if someone can tell where to get the pattern.
