    Hi everyone, I have spent the last 3 hours reading so many post on here.Love it all.You are very helpful ladies. I want to start my first quilt ever. I have tons of scraps on my table and want to make a Christmas theme quilt ( my fabrics are all Christmas designs). I read the tutorial on how to starts with a simple block. I think I am ready to go. You will see me here a lot as I go. So many terms and abbreviation on this site that are new to me. BTW I have been sewing for 30 +years and a quilt has always been something I wanted to do.
    What advice can you give to a newbie ,to help me start off and be successful with my first project.
    You all are wonderful,and your works are beautiful.

    Welcome from Idaho!
    The first three tips I give to new quilters are:
    Measure twice, cut once.
    Establish where you need to line up the edge of your fabric to get a 1/4" seam-or many people do a scant 1/4" seam.
    Press-don't iron.
    You will do awesome!!!

    Howdy and welcome from Kentucky!! :D
    As far as advice....well....I'm brand new too...LOL ;)
    I would say to do a block and post a picture on here so that all these helpful folks can give input. Also, in case of dire emergency...go to the "CHAT" and ask them. They are always available (24/7) and can answer any questions on the spot. GOOD LUCK!!
