Hi! I'm new to posting here, although I've been reading posts for several months and absorbing tips and encouragement enough that I finally finished my first quilt. It was hand pieced and hand quilted and I enjoyed all phases of putting it together. But now I want to learn how to machine piece, at least, and possibly machine quilt (my machine has a quilting foot) because I want to put some quilts together more quickly in order to give them to first-time chemo patients. I'm wondering if you could give me your opinion of an "easy" first-time machine-pieced quilt. I was thinking trip around the world? I'll probably do either machine stitch in the ditch or else tie them.
Being a lurker here and now active has really inspired me and awakened my long dormant creative side! I have so many ideas in my mind I hardly know where to start.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts/input/ideas!
