    My name is Debi and I live in South Florida. Quilting is in my blood but I still feel like a beginner...except when it comes to buy FABRIC, BOOKS, PATTERNS, AND KITS! I am a professional at that!
    Now I want to know if anyone has ever made this quilt...
    Circle of Life by Jacqueline DeJonge (Be Colorful) . My soon to be hubby has ask for me to make it for him...of course he may 80 years old before I collect all the fabric...(what a shopping trip!)
    Anyway I am looking tips and hints. I did make a Lone Star king size once...so I think I can do this... just jitters I guess.

    My Next big Project

    Welcome from the state of Washington. It was 80 here last week and people were complaining-I loved it. That is one gorgeous quilt you plan to do. I'm doing a Niemeyer class now for her Glacier Star quilt, and new to PP. I say go for it. May you enjoy the fun, inspiration, and expert advice I know you'll find at this site. It's the best.

    Welcome from another South Floridian. I am a newbie when it comes to quilting, but an oldie when it comes to buying books fabrics, etc. My plastic is permanently bent from using it so much. You probably can get some answers from the "Old Timers" if you come onto the chat room in the evening, They have had alot of experience in all types of projects.
    That quilt is absolutely gorgeous and I would not even know where to start, but there are a lot of sites to go on that can give you help, and also the libraries have a very large selection of books for beginners, giving all the instructions, etc.

    Thank you for all the wonderful wishes. I am just feeling a little over whelmed because so much of my life has changed...since my husband passed . Everything from new flooring being install on the entire first floor of my home while I had surgery one month after I lost him, to moving as of my sewing to a new room, unpacking the things that were being move to our new home that due to the housing collapse we did not buy. Things boxed for over 3yrs. That's where my rotary cutting mat was! Then my girls pushed me into a date...then another and so on...till I finally found a man that said "quilting ? Ugh... oh.... then buy what you need... as long as you don't forget to have dinner by 6pm and time for me ...WOW
