Great quilts!I am not a seamstress but would love to learn.How did you get started?
Hi Lavonne,Thanks for the kind comments. About getting started, I turned 20 and just decided that I wanted to make a quilt. I had a friend of a friend that invited me over to her home weekly for a ladies quilting group and it all snowballed from there! The first quilt I made was a queen size square in a square quilt for my bed. The second quilt I made was the Kansas Troubles quilt you see here in these pictures. What can I say? When I wanted to start quilting, I wanted to make QUILTS, not little wall hangings!Anyway, I've always said, if you can sew a straight stitch, you can quilt. And that's the truth. It looks a whole lot more complicated than it really is. If you have a quilt guild in your area, look into when they meet. A lot of times they'll have a weekly or monthly sewing time when they all get together to sew. You're bound to make some new friends and have many ladies that are more than willing to help a new quilter get started!
hello! I was googling Mountain Home quilt trying to see if there was a quilt shop in the town in Idaho & found your page- I love the red/green/white/black quilt, not sure what the pattern is called! Anywho, is that where you live? I just found out we're moving there soon with the USAF!
Hi LisaAnnB,I have heard of Mountain Home, Idaho but that is not where we live. We do live though in the mountains of the pacific northwest. I hope that you enjoy Idaho! :)
