Question Hello from Canada

Hi All,

I've picked up the quilting bug and am loving it! Absolutely no experience whatsoever in quilting!

My introduction to quilting was a 'baptism by fire'! A friend had asked me to fix an old quilt. It's a really slow process because I'm learning along the way.

Love advice, directions and suggestions.


P.S. I hope I'm in the right posting section.

Hi, Faireweedamsel! Welcome to this informative and helpful board. You will get so many great ideas you will never want to do anything else but quilt.

Howdy! I grew up mostly in Alaska and now live a bit south of BC in the Seattle region.

Repairing an old quilt is quite a task for a new quilter, kudos for you! I only do it for people I really really like.

Well, I am in Ohio and having been created quilts for the last 9 years after I gave my School Kids a wonderful time when I retired and they wanted me to make quilts for all of them...that didn't happen. Enjoy this, everyone here will help you and look to you for us if we can't find something. Enjoy!!!!! Quilting is wonderful and these quilters are wonderful. Welcome.
