    Cool Hey Y'all from the Carolinas

    Hello! Brand spankin' new quilter here in the Charlotte area. I have a gorgeous hand stitched quilt passed down from my great grandmother and it's starting to fall apart. It's the most comfortable and soft quilt and it combined with the fact that I have a niece due in May/June (and a corset pattern sitting in my drawer that I used a tutorial to draw up but have no idea how to sew) made me pull out my mom's sewing machine (she doesn't sew, she got it from my great aunt I think! haha) and start figuring it out.

    So far I've pieced together a changing pad out of three old shirts of mine (2 for front, 1 for backing). And then went and bought some fabric to make more! I'm excited to continue my journey and hope to learn a lot with you here on the Quilting Board.
