I have not yet made a quilt and was wondering if anyone had any good advice for a first timer? I can do a rag quilt, but not the other kind. I just bought a new machine, and it had this long arm thing for quilting and does all kinds of decorative stitching, but I have not even attempted to try it yet. I have no idea how to make the pretty quilters blocks with the diamond shapes and stuff when put together. I can only do one pattern as a block, for now. Hoping to learn more as I go. But if anyone can give me any great advice you received just starting off that you think will help please do.
