Hello everyone! I've made several blankets and other simple sewing projects (Christmas stockings, aprons, things like that), but I am new to quilting. I've made just one quilt, a simple one from a kit.

Right now I am cutting up my girls' baby clothes (*sniff, sniff* :( ) to make quilts for them, and I am also planning on making "I Spy" quilts for the grandmas as Christmas gifts.

I have a few questions, but I'll poke around a bit and see if I can find the answers. I look forward to talking to and learning from you all!

Welcome Gracie! You may want to look at Elizabeth A's quilt that she made from her daughter's clothes. As long as you use interfacing, you should be fine. We'll be looking for pictures!

Welcome Gracie:

You will find everyone here to be very helpful, don't hesitate to ask questions. I have an internet site that I've tried to gear toward new quilters, you might want to check it out.
