    You could make a sampler quilt. That is how I got into quilting. I had just started sewing and saw an ad for a quilting class at a local quilt store. We made 24 6" blocks and I arranged them differently than the example quilt so it would make a wall hanging for over my bed. I finished it at home, by myself, (typical of every class I've taken) and was able to quilt it on my regular size sewing machine. I used a walking foot and "stitch in the ditch".

    If you can't find a local class you can find many free quilt blocks online and make some of the most common, like 9-square and flying geese for example.

    Then you'll get a feel for quilting and be ready to explore so many options, including QAYG.

    I'm paying close attention here because I have decided I don't like some placemats I made last year, mainly because of my choice of binding fabric. I have a plan to turn them into a QAYG lap quilt. I have never tried it, but some of the results I've seen on this board are very encouraging, and that seems like a good project to start on. The placemats were made very quickly using a stack and whack method for cutting and stitch and flip technique for piecing, which I really enjoyed doing. Combining that and the QAYG should make for an effective way to get some larger quilts done on the DSM.
