    Hello from Michigan

    I am new to quilting. I have only made three quilts. My first one was a queen size for my bed. the second was a twin for my grandson and the third was a full for my youngest son who just left last week for a 9 month tour in Afghanistan. I would love advice and techniques and any little secrets that all of you other quilters are using. Right now I am trying to figure out how to use some of my animal panels to make a quilt for my older son. Then I have my two daughters to make quilts for and my other grandson who is 7 months. But I will wait on him so I can make him a twin one. I love quilting. I have taken two classes to learn some of the basics. Would love to make friends and talk to others that love to quilt as much as I do. I don't have anyone around here that does. Thank you and Happy quilting!!! Talesa

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. A great resource for quilting ideas are the Youtube videos done by Jenny Doan for the Missouri Star Quilt Co. For working with smaller panels, I like to find a pieced pattern that kind of suits the panel and put them together. An example would be duck wildlife panels with Flying Geese blocks.

    Welcome from Southern California, Talesa! You have already accomplished a lot in making a twin, full and queen! I haven't made anything larger than a lap size quilt because of the quilting involved (and for the fact we live in a warm climate). I have so many "to-do's" in my head, I don't know which one to do next. It's a wonderful dilemma.
