    so i tried patchwork...not good.i even tried half square triangles and it just didn't come out right.. i just don't get it. it's very frustrating. i think i really need to stick with what i enjoy..rag quilting with just solid shapes...squares, rectangles.so i thought, i guess it's ok if i rag quilt exclusively....what's wrong with that?

    No problem with that... but I was like you I only did denim quilts and no quilting. Then I got a book from Eleanor Burns quilt in a day, she has such great instructions on how to do a block that seems so complicated. She stresses about pressing apposing seams so they match perfectly and how to sew an exact 1/4 inch seam. It was a lesson that I learned so so much from, I did it on my own with her book and then I watched several video on you-tube about making quilts... It helped me out...If you want to learn more, there is a lot of free info out here to help you... also use this sites "search" and you can find lots of tutorials on just about everything...
    Happy Quilting.

    This is what I made using her book

    Always do what you want to do. No more, no less. I love the look of rag quilts but I've never made one. I'm stuck on blocks with themes such as Loralie panels, that kind of thing. Wish I could get off my theme thing but I enjoy it, so there you are!

    I started out with doing rag quilting and with help from everyone here it has helped me to get out of my comfort zone. My quilts are not great but with each one I get better.I enjoy learning from my mistakes. LOL Well maybe enjoy is not the right word, but I am learning a lot and I do enjoy that part. :XD:
