    New, 20-something Quilter from VA

    Hey all! You have a great community here. I'm new to the website and to quilting in general- I just started this year. I've been trying to teach myself from books and websites, but any tips you have would be much appreciated!

    Also- I'm newly engaged and I'm thinking about making quilts for my bridesmaids. Do you have any suggests for mid-level patterns that would be good for that sort of thing?

    Thanks much! So glad to get to know you all.

    Sarah

    Welcome from New York. There are many web sites for free easy patterns. Just type free easy quilt patterns
    There are many simple patterns to choose from. I am sure there will be many more helpful suggestions from other members here.
    Good Luck!

    Hello, welcome to the board, and congratulations on your engagement. I would suggest wall hangings for the bridesmaids, not big quilts. As a bride-to-be, you already have a lot going on!
