Default Hello - new to quilting

Hi, I am new to the art of quilting. I've completed a square patch top and am getting ready to machine quilt. I'm hoping to make a half triangle square patchwork after this to learn those skills. I've been watching lots of beginner videos on Youtube and referencing some books I have.

My other fiber hobbies are crocheting and rug hooking. I've been rug hooking for about 20 years and still love it, just thought I'd learn something new and use the math side of my brain!

I am sewing on a vintage Singer 503a (sometimes called Slant O Matic and similar to the Rocketeer) which is lots of fun.

Hello Evelyn and welcome to the Quilting Board! I'm in Mississippi. If you haven't already found her, Angela Walters has great videos on machine quilting techniques. She's my favorite.

A warm welcome from South Louisiana. Sounds like you are becoming addicted to quilting and creating beauty just as many of us are.
