    Question I'm a newby....

    Hi all I am new on the sight.
    I started quilting about a year a go, so far I have made 2 double quilts using sampler blocks, a handful of bags , and a few Etui boxes. I go to classes at my local quilt shop and we have workshops so there is always something new to learn. I love browsing the American sites, it amazes me looking at all the different types of quilts.
    I am always hungry to find small projects to do alongside my big quilts ( I have 2 quilt tops in progress) and would welcome any suggestions, also gift items to sell at craft fairs...

    I love doing table runners, especially holiday specific. Fast and fun!

    I also enjoy table runners since they are FAST and FUN!!! These are tough times to sell at craft fairs at least here in America. Everyone wants a bargain and a lot of time you don't get paid for the time you put into a project. You didn't post the country you are from????
    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort

    Hi all I am from England, quilting is taking off here and we look to the USA for inspiration. I started a couple of bags today, but we are having the hottest summer in years and feel very lethargic
