    I've made quite a few baby quilts which have all gone over splendidly, especially by those who don't quilt. At this point I still hope no real quilters look at my work, or at least cut me some slack if they do. :) I love to create quilts though, especially those that can be put to use by kiddos or adults alike! I'm a poor planner when it comes to quilts, so I'm working on better planning from the onset, instead of making it up as I go. I just finished my first larger sized quilt. It was a Hawaiian appliqué quilt for a friend as a wedding present. It was a ton of fun! This looks like a great forum and I always have questions (usually due to my lack of planning)!!

    Here is one of the baby quilts I did recently. We live in the Finger Lakes, NY and so do our friends with the baby. So I quilted the outline of the lakes (it's kind of difficult to see them, especially if you don't know what you're looking for).

    I too am a long time seamtress but new to quilting. I don't do well with this planning either. When I don't know what to do I or how to do it so I make something up and so far it works out well. Illsa

    At the bottom of where you type a message there is a place to attach files. It says "File attachments:". You just need to navigate to your file and upload it. It might take some time to upload if it is a large file. When finished, hit "Send".
