    I happened to be looking on our local Craigslist as I was looking for a smaller folding table. Not being able to find what I was looking for I happened to click on the "free" items to see if there was anything I was interested in.

    A woman was giving away Quilting Magazines. I just picked them up. She was wonderful and was apparently cleaning out some of her things. Her house was so warm and cozy with quilts all over the place. On the back of chairs, table runners, etc.

    I ended up with a combination of over 30 quilting magazines and books! I am going through them and there are so many ideas.

    I start my first quilting class tomorrow which is a beginner's boot camp. I quess you make pretty much what you want.
    My problem now is making a decision and then picking out the perfect material for it.

    That was real luck getting all those magazines free. I have so many that I try to share with some of our local new quilters to help them get started. I am the type who wants to try them all too.

    You will have to post your first quilt to show us when you finish it. Welcome to the world of quilting. It is very addictive and enjoyable. It's how I relieve my stress!!!

    It is alot of work to make a quilt but so worth it in the long run. Pick something easy looking for starter and not some real intricate pattern. That will make it alot easier on you. Curves and sharp points are hard and better done later after a little experience under your belt. Good luck kiddo.
