    New-ish Quilter from Kentucky

    Howdy! I am new-ish to quilting because I have created several quilt blocks but have somehow never managed to finish an entire quilt. I joined the message board at the request of a friend. She invited me to join a block of the week challenge. I am several weeks behind already but hoping to catch up this weekend.
    You guys are all so talented! I am excited to learn new techniques and get to know some of you better!

    Hello Old_Rosebud!
    Welcome from Minnesota!
    It's less stressful going at your own speed!
    But it sure feels good to get 'er done, too!
    The most important thing to have fun quilting!!!

    I'm a former Kentuckian (Louisville) transplanted to Florida - single quilt blocks can quickly become pillows! I'm not a sampler quilt fan for myself I like to look at others' sampler quilts but I don't want to make one so after
    I do individual blocks from a block of the month I make pillow covers out of them. It's an inexpensive way to Change up a room!

    Thanks for the great idea Cybrarian! This is the first quilt along that I have attempted and I must say I am learning a lot. I am trying to use the same hues and fabrics to help the unity. Sashing will help too. Of course - I can always gift it to someone at the end too! LOL.

    A big welcome from Texas.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
