    I learned how to make this Sample Quilt in an Adult Ed quilting class held at our local highschool. I'm very proud of how this turned out and now am very anxious to "go out on my own". How do you all decide what to work on next??? There are so many projects I want to try!

    That is an outstanding quilt for your first time. Your corners are even mitered!

    I generally choose by what is happeneing, who is having a baby and such. Lately, I have wanted to create but I hate piecing so I've been working on two quilts, one I'm piecing, and a scrappy quilt. I like them and crazy quilts because they are freeing, no rules.

    Welcome

    Lori this is a fabulous first quilt! Be very proud of yourself. There are so many free patterns and tutorials out there that you can go in any direction. I love the Moda Bake Shop for fun new projects. http://modabakeshop.com

    Wow!! You Go Girl!! It turned out beautifully! :)

    Good luck on picking your next one! I'd lie in bed, wide awake, for the longest time, thinking of all the quilts I wanted to make.... It is really hard to choose just one at a time! lol!!!

    How about one for the season? A Summery one now, then a Fall one.....?

    :)

    That is so pretty! I can't wait to see what you work on next! My biggest problem is wanting to start so many things that it is hard to get them finished. Good luck on your decision. :wink:

    Oh, I cannot help you with choosing what to do next because I have several things going all the time. Seems as if my mind just keeps coming up with ideas. You sound as if you are hooked on quilting because that is a symptom. LOL Enjoy--your ability is outstanding for a first quilt.

    I have a list of people that I want to make a quilt for & pick and choose who gets the next one. I also make several baby quilts to have on hand in a pinch! I haven't made any for ME yet and that's the next one on my to do list!!

    That is just beautiful. I love blue and yellow in a quilt. I look at magazines and check out the pics here to get inspiration.

    You did a fabulous job. Nice colors and design. You should be proud of yourself.

    Whatever your next project, take your time, don't over extend yourself, and have fun.

    What a fun sampler! It is hard to choose what to try next. I usually let the fabric I have inspire me on the next design.
