    I've been a crocheter for over 21 years and I'm burned out and ready for a new challenge. I've never quilted before and I've never sewed a whole lot. Got my hands full don't I? Oh well, I'm up for a challenge. Before I jump in over my head, I'm reading up on quilting and getting an idea of what's to come. I would greatly appreciate any advice you could give me. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from this forum and also looking to make some wonderful friends.

    Hello and Welcome! The wonderful thing about quilting is you can do as much or little with it. Anything goes!

    Welcome from Minnesota!

    My suggestion is to start small ... maybe a crib or lap quilt, or even a wall hanging or placemats. And if possible take a class at a local quilt shop (LQS). Good luck!!

    Hi and welcome from Alaska. I used to crochet like a mad woman too. But I returned to sewing which has always been my first love and I took up quilting when hubby said not to go back to work. Loving it. Still admire crochet too.
