    How 'new' are you to quilting?

    Let's welcome our newest quilters. I would say I'm pretty new (about two years), but I'm sure there are others who are newer.

    Please share how 'new' you are to quilting and what drew you to this hobby!

    Since no one else is brave enough to answer, I will! :lol:

    I learned to quilt three years ago but the last year has been a little too crazy and I have actually been working on the same lap quilt for tw years now. :oops:

    Recently I have actually started to make some progress on my quilts and hope to actually finish some projects!

    It will be three years in Oct for me. I started as I didn't know what to do for DH for Christmas. And then before I knew it I had done one each of the kids as well, so 4 done before 3 months were done, and the rest they say is history.

    I just started quilting this year. So far I've made one lap quilt and handquilted it, have two more lapquilt tops finished and ready to go and am working on two more. I am planning on lapquilts as Christmas presents for a few people this year. And I'm going to make a special quilt for a friend and one day hopefully make a king size quilt for our bed! Wait you didn't ask for our list did you? :lol:

    My Grand Mother taught me to sew, when I was in the first grade. I used to sit on a dictionary, so my knee could reach the knee feed!! :D I couldn't begin to count the items that I have made over the years. I have enjoyed every minute of it & am so glad she took the time to teach me.
    :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Unless you count a few simple patchwork squares stitched together and tied to cover up an ugly couch years ago, I never quilted anything.

    I do hand embroidery, counted cross stitch and crochet. My knitting produces trapezoids instead of squares.

    I have been sewing forever but you can only make so many clothes for no reason. I love to do bridesmaid/prom dresses but doing those just for fun is a bit silly. For that reason, I've decided I'm going to teach myself to quilt.

    My first project is probably going to be a runner for the top of the piano.

    I have been at this just under two years total I had joined a new small quilt group then and began doing applique and piecing there. Didn't really get into it til last July when I went on my first shop hop. bought the kit, and realized I got in a bit deep for my first attempt. I just finished it last week, and I may say not too bad for my first one! Well I guess my veryvery first one was a bluejean lapquilt or twin. Oh my gosh, was that heavy. Gave it to my son for Christmas last year, not sure he even wanted it, but he was so sweet and took it! Since then I have finished my shop hop quilt of course, and a baby quilt, 2 nice lap quilts. I have one in the machine now and another one waiting to be quilted. I just didn't know how addicting this was and how unlimited! When I was little I always would climb under the bed covers at my grandparents house and listen to the rain hit the metal roof. Those quilts were so warm and comforting. So that is my story.
