    Talking From the Netherlands, Hi!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm from the Netherlands and completely new to Quilting. So new, I don't have any equipment! I plan on making my fiancée a Hand sewn quilt and after reading and watching and browsing the web I've decided to join a forum and engage with the community!

    I hope I get along with everyone!

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome from South Louisiana. If there are any fabric shops close to you, it would be good to go in and see if they have a beginner sewing class. It probably won't be hand sewing, but the tips they will give you to sew on a machine will apply no matter if you sew by hand or machine. My friend who is not much of a sewer has bought the 10" layer cake packs and made quilts for her husband, grandson and granddaughter. The advantage of those is that they are big, all the same size and usually from a fabric line where they have some gorgeous pieces of fabrics. You don't have to put a border on it, just add backing and batting and quilt it. Missouri quilt company has some really pretty layer cake packs. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...lt-layer-cakes

    Welcome! Lots of folks here love to share ideas, pictures, and places to get good fabric. You are likely to love the creativity that hand quilting and piecing gives you!

    Welcome from NY. What part of the Netherlands are you from? If I'm not being to personal. I had the great pleasure of visiting several towns there and loved them all. Have a good friend in Maastricht.

    Thank you for your kind responses, everyone!

    I'm from the south (Noord-brabant) not as far south as maastricht though! I love in 's-hertogenbosch (den bosch) but spend most of my days in Eindhoven!

    I'll make sure to share my progress, please bear with me as it won't be pretty, but I can already tell that I came to the right place to grow and learn from passionate, experienced quilters!

    Welcome from the eastern part of Texas.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Greetings from Seattle, Washington. Hope you find help and inspiration here, unfortunately handwork is not my strength but I send you lots of virtual hugs and "well dones!" I really admire those who do handwork.
