    New from Iowa!

    Hello, I am new from Iowa. I have a new Kenmore sewing machine I bought years ago and havnt used yet! I have been wanting to quilt for a long time. Just never found the time to get started. But am hoping to finally get going on a quilt. Problem is I keep finding quilts I like but look hard.

    Here are two I love:

    ​Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I can't see the ​picture but we all started somewhere. The Missouri Star Quilt co. has a lot of YouTube videos that you might enjoy.

    Welcome! You must love horses - those quilts are both beautiful, but definitely not beginner friendly!

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Ditto this! If you haven't quilted ever, you should start with something easy. Tartan is right, try Missouri Star Quilt Co. , youtube them and you will find some easy, quick, quilts to make.

    Greetings and welcome from New Hampshire.
    The horse face is beautiful, but as 4catsandaquilt said - not newbie-friendly.
    Try a pieced quilt as your first, something like Jacob's Ladder or a Log Cabin.
    If you did a log cabin you could fussy cut a small horse head or full body for the center square/rectangle.

    Hello and "Holy Moly" - those quilts are fabulous but almost impossible to make for a beginner. My first quilt is about 40 years old and still in the back of my closet - unfinished - I took a hard pattern and decided to make it even harder - big mistake. But it was all scraps anyway - so not too expensive of a "trial" quilt.

    Welcome from Louisiana I might suggest that you use a horse print fabric and a basic pattern and get some of quilting basic skills down then your "dream Quilt" would be a wonderfully fun challenge Quilting should be fun so find your way and what works for you
