    Hi everyone:

    I have never done any quilting, I have done crochet and sewn several things for the Threads of Love, here in Henderson.

    However, I came up with the idea of making a quilt for my son and his wife, using pictures of their 2 little girls, but .....as I said my skill are NONE.

    I read one about quilting on paper and it sounds very easy, what kind of paper is it used?, then, do you saw the long strips one next to the other?

    Thank you for any help you can give me.
    Lorena

    The one on the top is me, the proud grandmother of these 2 beautiful angels.

    Hello and welcome aboard from Germany :). Your grands are precious!
    Personally, I wouldn't start with paper piecing, but just joining squares together. You can print pics of your grands onto fabric and take these as center squares. Just my 2Cent :).
    Enjoy the process, this is most important.

    enjoy yourself around here!
    cute little gals.
    My GD's are 6 and 9 and have been sewing on paper - they do mazes and dot to dot with no thread. Hopefully they will learn control.
