    I have been enjoying reading all the topics on the boards as well as all the brilliant pictures of completed quilts. I am totally in awe of you all. I am a true beginner, I am so new that I haven't actually started yet as I am not sure as to where or how I should begin. Any advise gratefullt recieved. I have dreamt for years about doing quilting but never actually had the time, well I am now retired and am raring to go. But how that is the question.

    Hi, welcome from Minnesota,US!

    My suggestion would be to take a beginners quilt class. That's all it took for me to get started. Good luck!!!

    Welcome! There are easy patterns on this board. Look in the tutorial section. Is there a quilt shop near you or a guild that would offer lessons?
