Yes, love the free patterns online. I keep mine in binders with clear sleeve protectors so I don't tear them up thumbing through them over and over again. I know I won't be able to make all the quilts, but I like having so many options for my materials. I sit and dream too. I buy a few patterns, books and quilting magazines also, so building a sewing library to pass on to my daughter. I got a lot of patterns as a beginner that are anything but beginner level. Seriously! Why do they label these patterns as "easy"? I downloaded one that said, "Kids can quilt too!" It was very cute with kitties on it, but no kid I have ever met under the age of 16 could handle it. I found another one advertising for beginners who "should not be afraid to tackle a full size quilt". It was full of one inch strips and would be very unforgiving to beginners' seam allowances.
