    I am just getting serious about quilting. I took a class at Jo-Ann's, but didn't get the cutting down right, and ruined some really pretty fabric. I have signed up for another class somewhere else. I have been looking on the tutorial and now I can see how to do it.

    I used to be an avid crocheter, but arthritis won't allow me to crochet any longer.

    I am looking forward to happy quilting!!!

    thank you for your welcome. I appreciate it. I have been browsing a shop in Estes Park, Colorado that sells the most beautiful, hand pieced Amish quilts.

    Hi Ida! Welcome from snowy Philadelphia area! Amish quilts are beautiful aren't they! In Lancaster county, PA you can go into a real Amish home where they have their quilts for sale. The home I went to had bedsize quilts laying out on a bed and layered on top of each other. They were all hand quilted of course, but there were so many of them! It was really amazing! I'm not good at describing it. Happy quilting to you.

    Thanks for your welcome. I think it would be wonderful to see them in their setting! The shop I have visited sells them for more than I can afford! Some are over $1,000.00.

    Welcome! I hope you kept the fabric you think you ruined. I am sure you will be able to use it later. I am from Colorado as well. Take care, you will love this forum.
