    Hello and welcome from central Alabama. You have a great foundation for sewing, so the learning curve should be short. Just gotta get used to a 1/4 inch seam, and the terminology.

    Oh so true! I`ve been glued to the PC watching videos will hubby and I take turns staying with my mom-in-law since her back surgery. Amazing how much more time I have on my days here at home. She is doing great @82. We are very blessed in our lives. I wish that for all of you also.

    I just totally finished my first quilt last week, so still quite the Newbie (although with a rapidly growing stash and already a couple of WIPs!)
    The folks here are fantastic at helping and encouraging, but the first thing you need is a Quilt-Mom! :-)

    Welcome to the board from another Texan! Rail Fence is an easy pattern, and looks really nice when it's finished. You might start with a lap size for your first try. Have fun!
