    Hi everyone, I am new here, and new to quilting. I have made two quilts so far, one lap quilt for my youngest daughter and a large quilt for a volunteer fire department auction. I am still so excited about quilting and cant wait to get really good.....right now, no matter how hard i try, cant get all seams to line up right, but i have to say, that they are not off by much, dont know if i am cutting wrong or sewing wrong, but i will keep working at it.....fabric is addicting, i probably have enough to make 20 quilts already....and i always buy extra for any cutting mistakes i make, i live 45 miles from the nearest fabric store, so i am always afraid if i dont get extra, they wont have it when i go back..

    anyway, cant wait to talk to you all......

    from texas, daph

    Welcome to the board from Missouri! This is a great place to get help.
    I do lots of pinning when I want my corners to match!

    Welcome to the board from Southern California. You're off to a great start. Give it some time, we all started out as well, and got better with trial and error.

    i LOVE that horse :lol:
    welcome from Florida, Daph...and i'll tell you what is helping my blocks, become more accurate. Picked up this tip from somebody here on board, a while back, and if I could remember who it was, would give them a hug...sew and measure...sew and measure...eventually, I guess, I won't have to measure, quite so much, but right now, even with the 1/4" foot, it helps, lol, immeasurably :wink:

    Greetings from Sacramento CA. I think it's great that you feel comfortable in your craft that you made a raffle quilt so early on. The members on this board have such good hearts.
