    Newbie!

    Hi all I am not new to sewing but VERY new to quilting. I am in the process of teaching myself with the help of you tube and now this forum. I am putting the borders on my first quilt that is a Bargello (Melinda's Heart) I am 64, a retired nurse and happy to now have time for this. I would LOVE to be "adopted" by a veteran quilter! I live in Blackfoot, Idaho and my other hobby is raising chickens.

    Welcome from Gilbert, AZ. I know you will love the resources and wonderful people here on the board. (I'm fairly new myself and it has been an easy transition!)

    Welcome from Wisconsin. Hope you have many many happy quilting times ahead of you! I too was self-taught. I learned a lot from Eleanor Burns when I started.

    WElcome from Manitoba, there is also Eleanor burns site, Missouri quilt star is my favorite tutorials... I was self-taught also, it took me much longer to get the hang. Only now in 50's I learnt to start asking for help and receive plenty of help now..
