    Red face Hello new to the board from London England

    Hello all

    I am Sarah mum of 3 girls and from London England. I found your blog yesterday when searching for an answer to a question.

    I am a true novice to quilting, yesterday I completed my first ever Moda Bake Shop quilt using modern vintage charm packs for daughter Lauran who is away at Bristol Uni studying to become a doctor. I hope it brightens up her student bedroom and reminds her of home.

    I made quilts for all 3 girls before but now I have researched how it's done properly I would be embarrassed to ever show anyone the first 3, we didn't have access to the Internet all those years ago when I did them. pretty much every stage that i have got to on this one I have been spoilt for choice on you tube videos to show me what to do next. I particularly love the ones from Jeni @ Missouri Quilt Shop they are always very detailed.

    I had major surgery to my spine back in September and its meant I'm very confined to home and so it's been great to have something to keep me occupied.

    I am hoping that joining you all will enable me to improve and learn from the pro's and also provide a place where I can come and ask friends the 'stupid' questions that I will know doubt have.

    My next project is for Nadine (15 in November) and I am going to try the ice cream quilt by Jane Brocket which was featured in Love Patchwork magazine. I have bought about 20 fat quarters and my first job is cutting them into strips!

    Things I need help, more practice on are (which hopefully will get better in time)
    rotary cutting.
    Truly understanding my sewing machine and what it can do
    free motion quilting.

    Well that's a little about me, looking forward to reading and following you all.

    Sarah

    Hello & Welcome from Brisbane, Australia. Hope your your back gets better soon. Don't be afraid to ask questions because no question is "stupid" There are heaps of people on here that can answer any questions you ask, all you have to do is ask.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Years ago the first quilt I hand quilted and was so proud to show off.....someone pointed out that the knots were supposed to be buried in the sandwich. My first experience with the quilt police and I was crushed. Never feel bad about your first quilts because they were the start of your quilting adventure.

    Welcome from New York!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Welcome from Michigan! This is a wonderful place to show not only the good, but the bad and/or ugly. Ask me how I know.

    Hello from Illinois, with part time house in Essex. At this moment we are in fact awaiting word of step-daughter who is at Whips Cross trying to have a baby!! Husband goes back to England a few times a year, and I try to go every 2 years or so. London is one of my favorite cities.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
