    Another newbie...

    My name is Patrick, I'm 27 and I am from Northwestern Kansas and have decided to take up quilting several days ago. Keep in mind, I know NOTHING about sewing/sewing machines/seam allowances... any of that; which is very scary to me. Last night, I found the (extremely) helpful tutorial videos featuring Jenny - I want to thank her for making the videos; they go at a very nice pace and she is so clear for us clueless beginners! Because of her, I dove into my first quilt (baby quilt) and was able to make a quilt front in 3 hours. I am now able to open another form of creativity for myself and found a hobby that will probably send me into bankruptcy! I hope to one day to make the 6+ hour trek to shake her hand and tell her "thank you from the bottom of my heart!". This site is awesome!

      Welcome! Jenny is the best isn't she? Because of her I can now do a Dresden plate. Before that I was afraid to try anything new. Mostly b/c I didn't have a clue about anything quilting. Wait until you see the binding tutorial. Its wonderful as are all the tutorials Jenny does. The rest of the girls do good tutorials too. Enjoy!
