Default Hi from UK

Hello, thank you for letting me join.
As said Im in the UK, Im a retired dressmaker but have only ever made patchwork cushions but have decided to jump in the deep end and make a quilt so will no doubt be asking lots of questions, other than cutting and joining pieces to make the blocks havnt got a clue what to do, its going to be a huge learning curve for me so will be very greatful for all your help

Welcome from Ontario, Canada. There are many good videos from the Missouri Star Quilt co. on YouTube, start small with some table runners to get the basics. Have fun with your new creative outlet!

A warm welcome from Southern Indiana. As someone who was trained as a dressmaker 'back in the day', I can testify that quilting is a lot more fun! Enjoy!

Welcome from Texas! I think you will like this quilting board. It has tons of helpful quilters who are ready & willing to help. Ask as many questions as you can think of. You will be glad you started to learn to quilt. It's a fun hobby.

So glad to have you with us. I'm waving hello from the Seattle, Washington area, a little south of Vancouver, British Columbia. If you don't mind rain, it's a lovely part of the world.

When I first started quilting the 1/4" seam seemed so tiny compared to what I was used to! You've got a great head start on many that you have experience with fabric and great sewing skills.
