    I have been fascinated with quilts for years. I read and watch everything I can... I made one log cabin quilt top. I'm a type of person who learns quickly, but need some guidance. I'm interested in designing and appliqueing a story quilt, but just don't know where to start.

    Welcome to the board.

    Coloring books are a good place for applique patterns. If you've never done it before, look for more simple shapes. Start with a small project. Potholders are a good starting point.

    Hi and welcome from TN. Here is a story quilt posting you may like. If you go to "Search" up top and put in story quilts you will find several posts, but this one captured my memory when you asked.
