    Greetings from Florida

    Hi there! I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Elizabeth. I'm a mother of 4 wonderful children. Ryan is 15, Brandon is 11, Anabell is 4, and Olivia is 3.
    I have been sewing since I was 12 years old. I make children's clothes and I design patterns for them.
    I have a secret though. I've never made a quilt. Not even one. I'm quite intimidated by them. Knowing the work that goes into them, I have a deep appreciation for those that make them. I'm hoping that joining this group will give me the push I need to get my feet wet and try one out.
    Thanks for allowing me to join and opening me up to a whole new world of possibilities!
    Happy Quilting!!

    Welcome to the site. I started out making a pillow before I attempted a quilt. Start small, even a small wallhanging, something that you will see results quickly!

    Welcome from North Central Missouri. Lots for the beginner here,and how to do things the right way. I was self-taught and have many bad habits in quilting. Just remember, like the journey that always begins with the first step, quilting begins with the first stitch.

    Lots of people think we are crazy to cut fabric up into pieces and then sew them back together again. Start with the easier patterns recommended here on the QB board like a nine-patch or log cabin; ask questions here and at your local quilt shop...there are no dumb questions. Main thing is to have FUN.

    Howdy and welcome, from TX!

    If you can sew, you can quilt. Just start out with something small and enjoy the water!

    Welcome from Keller, TX! Quilting is a LOT different than making clothes but just as much fun and reward. You will learn lots here.

    Welcome to the forum from another Floridian. Where are you located in Florida? I am in the Lakeland area. Quilting is very addictive, but FUN.

    Welcome from WI. Quilting is very relaxing and since you are a sewer it will probably be very easy for you. Have fun with it, in your spare time. Having 4 young children you probably don't have much spare time.

    Welcome from SC Texas. I had a friend who started by making a doll quilt for her little girl, her next project was a lap quilt and on to bed sized. You will get a lot of help here, there is always someone ready to help with any problem.
