    First efforts by a beginner

Size:  1.75 MBAfter reading and educating myself via this board and craftsy.com I have been very nervous about tackling a big quilt. Having a little break from work I finally decided to just use some random fabrics and start making some easy blocks from block of the month 2012. I am very glad I have finally begun on my quilting journey, just a pieced top with borders still to add and the quilting and binding to go, but have enjoyed it so much. I just know now I have begun I will learn and improve as I go. Thank you for the hints, tips, and inspiration I have found here on this board. Will try to upload photo.

    Welcome to the world of quilting. Your quilt is lovely and your piecing is great. I've taken some classes, but really most of what I have learned comes from the internet. There is so much to learn out there. Have fun on your quilting journey.

    You did so well. You are well on your way.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Wow! That certainly doesn't look like it was done by a beginning quilter. You have done a fabulous job.

    You will soon be a quilt-a-holic if you aren't already. That is very nice.

    Good first blocks. The way you are learning reminds me of my quilting journey. I started by buying a book on learning to quilt. I then learned so much from watching a show on HGTV called "Simply Quilts".
