    Hello from Northern Cal

    Hi all! I am a complete newbie to sewing and to quilting. I've wanted to try it for years and finally bought a machine and a week later some material. Yesterday I went to start cutting my strips and I couldn't get the second piece of fabric to fold evenly so off to the Internet....and found this great site! I also found out that I should have pre-washed my fabric. Flannel does shrink. My 9 1/2 in strips are now 9 1/4 in. The first of what I am sure will be many mistakes .

    Welcome to the board from the Pacific Northwest (far northern Oregon)....I used to live in No. California (outside Sutter Creek). You'll learn SO much from this board, and going back to old posts will really help your learning curve. I've been quilting nearly 40 years and I learn something new nearly every day, and love it! Most importantly, enjoy it!
