    Hi everyone. Discovered this site by chance. What luck! Have just retired and now have the time to try patchwork for the first time. Very exciting but also a little bit scary. So many wonderful quilts on display. Need lots of advice as I haven't done any real sewing for over 40 years.lol.

    Welcome from the frozen tundra of South Dakota, USA. Glad to have you with us. I have been here at QB for almost a year, but I love to get on here. Need to control myself a little more so I am more productive. Have fun, and you will be making quilts for everyone soon. Blessings,

    Just bought my first lot of fabric. Haven't got a definate block or pattern in mind but couldn't resist. Desperately need advice on washing. Do I cut the selvage off first before I wash or after.

    Hello and welcome from New Hampshire

    I take selvage off after washing; however, I rarely wash fabric anymore unless am sure it's going to run.

    Hello Saf from a fellow Brit, albeit over 20 years since I left. I only started P&Q just over 6 years ago - and it is very engrossing and enjoyable. You will pick up lots on here.

    Welcome from central Florida. I always wash first - just recently had both a light yellow and a light teal run like crazy. I just don't trust the fabric. I don't bother to cut the selvages until I straightening fabric up to use it. This site is a great place to find ideas!

    Hello from Ohio!

    I used to have a friend from England, she was a wonderful Lady!

    She passed on a little over a year ago, I do miss her dearly.

    Welcome to the board! So glad to have you. It's way too much fun...don't tell anyone, but sometimes we don't get too much done because we're on here too much!
