    Red face Oregon Coast Newbie to Quilting!

    I am a real newbie to quilting! My first experience has been to make rag quilt tote bags for 4 of my sisters. It was so much fun and got me interested in the world of quilting. I see I have SEW much to learn and that is why I am here. I feel overwhelmed and wonder how to start. I would love to learn how to make the blocks ... quess tutored videos would be a great place to start ... comments?
    Looking forward to meeting and getting to know you. Rita

    Welcome from SoCal....this is a good place to get any questions you have answered. There are lots of free quilt patterns on the internet..look for one that is easy and jump in! You will need some supplies like cutting mat, rotary cutter. U-tube has lots of helps too.

    Hi Rita, welcome to the board from NE Ohio. Jump in with both feet, and enjoy the ride. Quilting can be very addictive.

    Hi Rita,
    Welcome from the Adirondack Mtns of northern NY state! I'm pretty new here myself and I feel sure you will like it. Each time I log into the forum, I see a new idea or photos of someone's completed project and I then wish there were more hrs in the day :-)

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Jenny Doan's videos for the Missouri Star quilt Co are a good place to start. She has from table runners to quilts on Youtube.

    Welcome from the Columbia river gorge. There are great quilt shops along the coast...each are very helpful and have great classes. Bandon,Cannon Beach,Tillamook come to mind.
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    Welcome from OHIO! Check out Missouri Star Quilt Tutorials on YouTube. Jenny has lots of easy quilts you can start with. Ask questions on this board and you'll get lot of helpful info. I'm excited for you!

    Hi Rita, I am also from the Oregon coast. Tillamook. Which part of the coast are you from? When I started quilting almost 17 years ago I walked into a fabric store and picked several fabrics I liked and a book. I went home and just followed the instructions. When I had problems I called that store and they walked me through my problems. I've been sewing ever since. Only now I have taken over the family room and moved the family to the front of the house.Brenda

    I just came across this site today and found it very interesting. I live in Tillamook and have been quilting...topping for about 17 years. Boy time flies. I am a fan of scrap quilts and follow Bonnie Hunter at quiltville.com and have all of her books. I am going to attend a couple of classes when she comes to Oregon in September. I was a matchy matchy type color chooser up until about 4 years ago. Now my fabric is moving out and I am getting to a place where I can begin to go shopping for more. Yeah. I look forward to the conversations here. Brenda
