    Do you have a machine, rotary cutters, mat, etc? If you have a machine, do you know how to use it? We will help you in any way we can. Let us know what you need.

    I think the Fun and Done or Flip and Sew is a great way to get started. It sure got me going. I do not have tutorials. These more experienced quilters do I am sure.
    You could go on the Internet and put in Fun and Done or Flip and Sew and you would probably get a hit.
    I took a short course at a local quilt store....any near you?
    Good luck.

    I have a machine, its a Singer tradition, thts all tht says on it, i havent tried yet cause i v normally used the one me and mum shared.
    it had a great offer so we bought that one too ( i dont live with my mum but we are very close and see eacother loadsss)

    i have a rotary cutter too but i need fresh blades( its yellow, cant remember the name rite now, also i d like one of those blades tht just make holes.
    and i have a mat too( as i do scrapbooking, cardmaking, altering objects etc).

    I dont have very much fabric yet but my aim is to collect so i can make bedcovers in pinks and creams, one in blues and one with pastels but with lots of flowers. and last 2 that can be a mix of all of thse colours(pastels mainly but also strong pink, blue etc)

    i also have sum needles, and threads, also rulers but especially one long metal ruler. i m guessing i might need som quilting rulers or shapes.
    i suck at getting lines straight (like in a square so its a properly square,lol)


    i mite have other useful things too but i dont really know,lol :wink:

    Welcome Sunny from PA.

    I have some advice. I love to sew and have been trying to learn how to quilt. I sew and quilt for charity and gifts for family and friends.. I do it because I love it and it helps others.

    Things I have learned.....

    Enjoy what you do.
    Finished is better than perfect.
    BUY the best equipment that you can afford...and upgrade when you can.
    Dont be afraid to ask questions.
    This board is absolutely wonderful. The quilters here are so friendly and willing to help.
    Watch for sales and coupons.
    Mistakes are opportunites to be more creative.
    Join a sewing guild or quilt group.
    I belong to American Sewing Guild. They have so many learning opportunities, ways to help others, and bonus...you get a card good for 10 percent off Joann's (not coupon items but it is good on sale prices) and many of the quilt shops honor it for the same.

    Hope that helps Happy quilting and may all your bobbins be full.

    Margie :)
