and we don't have a lot of classes for quilters here anyone know any books that are good for beginners i can sew and have a lot of ideas like a garden quilt with all the veggies
i live two hours from the amish country and i live to go there for the quilt
but i found one in idaho that i just fell in love with and wanted so bad but the woman who made it wasn't around and they could not sell it it was a rag quilt unbelievably beautiful.
thanks deborah

Hi Debtea2
I have been watching a lot of YouTube videos and have taught myself about quilting. Classes were hard because many people in them were more advanced than I was. The thing to remember about quilting is that it is an expression of you, and that whatever you create is a work of art! Little by little, just like your quilts, you will grow and flourish in your skill.

Oh how I luv seeing Barn Quilts....
There is a metal barn about 20miles down the mountain that has a "Flag" on the side...visable for motorists driving up the mountain.

Very nice words of support Chickie!

I've been making quilts since I was a girl. My great aunt showed me how to use a quilting frame. For quite a few years I made tons of baby quilts, for my own babies and others. I made a quilt for everyone who got married. I'm sad I didn't take a photo of everything I've made. My skill used to be so much better than it is now. I've relaxed a bit as I've gotten older. I'm thankful to just finish something...and if its not quite perfect thats ok. I still love it, the receivers appreciate them and I'm still sewing. Keep working at it...be happy with your results...it's a lovely craft.

I love your barn quilts, Kem! We have a lot of them here in Iowa; but, I have never made one.

Alicia, I think that flower design is beautiful!

My daughter made this barn quilt for me this past Christmas. I had wondered why she had asked me what my favorite quilt block was....
I decided to put it on the end of the old garage instead of our barn. This way, I can enjoy it everyday when I look out my kitchen window!

I have been looking on various internet sites to make a wooden barn quilt block. I love these as a craft project. Hope to make one soon.

So the latest FarmGirl Magazine issue has inspired me to learn to quilt. I've got some beautiful fabric my Mom gave me that she loved but wasn't able to do anything with. She now has dementia and can't sew, cook or paint any longer. (she used to master all crafts!) So I want to make a lap quilt for her out of the fabric. It's beautiful with roses. We have a little quilt shop in our town and they offer classes as well as a big back room where people can come to use the room for $5.00 a DAY! If you need help they offer assistance for $20 an hour. The owner said she will gladly give me guidance with cutting and helped me choose a beginning pattern to use. I'm so excited to create this for my Mom! She loved this fabric and I know she'll recognize it.
For a beginning quilter....what advice do you have for me? I'll post photos as I go if you'd like to see. I get started tomorrow!

Hi Jenn,
First off, consider moving this conversation to the "What are you working on today" thread or start a new topic . . . . I know you won't be putting your beautiful creation on your garage door. Then I would also encourage you to stop in and get acquainted with Jody at Homegrown Quilts the next time you are in Grangeville. That is one of the best quilt shops anywhere and she is very knowledgeable. And do take windypines advise -- cut and sew carefully . . . especially the cutting part. Once it's cut there is no way to "un-cut" it . . . ask me how I know?
Happy quilting. You will find it very addicting.
hugs,
jean
