    I learned how to make this Sample Quilt in an Adult Ed quilting class held at our local highschool. I'm very proud of how this turned out and now am very anxious to "go out on my own". How do you all decide what to work on next??? There are so many projects I want to try!

    That is an outstanding quilt for your first time. Your corners are even mitered!

    I generally choose by what is happeneing, who is having a baby and such. Lately, I have wanted to create but I hate piecing so I've been working on two quilts, one I'm piecing, and a scrappy quilt. I like them and crazy quilts because they are freeing, no rules.

    Welcome

    Lori this is a fabulous first quilt! Be very proud of yourself. There are so many free patterns and tutorials out there that you can go in any direction. I love the Moda Bake Shop for fun new projects. http://modabakeshop.com

    Wow!! You Go Girl!! It turned out beautifully! :)

    Good luck on picking your next one! I'd lie in bed, wide awake, for the longest time, thinking of all the quilts I wanted to make.... It is really hard to choose just one at a time! lol!!!

    How about one for the season? A Summery one now, then a Fall one.....?

    :)
