    New to quilting. Just finished first top and about to start quilting. I am very nervous about this and want it to turn out good. Any advice out there?

    Hi from Ohio! Have you practiced yet? If you practice until you are confident then you won't be nervous when you start the quilt.

    Welcome from NM. My advice, relax and enjoy. My first efforts weren't the best but it gets better with time. Don't be too hard on yourself.

    Machine quilting. I have been working on it a lot so I cannot imagine doing it by hand. I know I would like it better but kids now want one. Much to do so I had better get quilting!

    How did you quilt the beautiful lavendar quilt in the piture? Is this a software program that creates the design or is it done free style? Thanks

    I have finally finished quilt and not totally satisfied with how it turned out. Most but not all of my blocks align. Needed to pin more and more space to sew. Wish there was some sort of frame you could use to keep fabric taut while machine quilting. Thank you for all the good info.
