    :-) I am new to this so I ask you bear with me. I have only completed one quilt in my whole life (it's long) and I would like to make something for a friend's special 70th. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Hey Craftybear,
    Thanks for the speedy response -- I just printed out a free quilt pattern, Turning Nines into a Seven Pattern. I think I can strip quilt and it looks like you make 4-nine blocks intersected by a cross, so I'm thinking 4 sets of 4 or maybe 6. I want it to be big enough.

    Hello and welcome from Ontario. Warm wishes is a nice pattern to use if you want to feature one or more fabrics.

    Welcome from Oklahoma with a Massachusetts accent. So happy you could be here. There is always room for one more quilter.
