    Nana39, welcome aboard!

    You might find some great books to get you started at your local library ...

    Many books have an introductory section that walk you through rotary cutting, quilting basics, colour choices.

    You'll find lots of inspiration here with glorious quilts the board members are making! Be sure to check out the 'Tutorials' and 'Links and Resources' sections of the board.

    For larger quilts, stitch in the ditch is probably the easiest to start out with. Or a decorative stitch that meanders along some of the seam lines.
    Free motion quilting takes some practice, but the meandering stitch is pretty easy to learn.

    Harriet Hargrave's Heirloom Quilting book is excellent. She covers everything from needles & thread to free motion quilting. Good luck and welcome aboard!
