    Saying hi from Oregon :)

    Hi Everyone,

    This looks like a great place to be!

    Up until last weekend, I had never quilted anything, ever. So I decided to actually open the beginners quilt book purchased well over six months ago, and dig in. Good decision..it's wonderful fun!!

    I'm going to try to post a picture of my first project. It's not very big, only about 41"x42", so maybe it would be considered a wall hanging, or maybe a quilt for a little kid. Either way, I learned a lot but still have many questions, many of which I'm sure will be answered here.

    The lighting in this photo is sort of off, it looks sort of "yellow" but it's really basic Christmas colors.

    Nice to meet all of you

    Karen

    Welcome to the board. Its nice to meet a fellow Oregonian! We live on the Eastern side of the Cascades, close to Mt. Bachelor.

    When posting pictures......DO NOT PREVIEW your post. It sends the pictures to the same place odd socks go to.

    Welcome from Minnesota! We'd love to see a photo of your first quilt - the size sounds perfect for a baby quilt.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
