    Hi from the UK

    Hi everybody. My name is Lorraine and I'm a newbie quilter. I've been watching the MSQC's vids on YouTube for a couple of weeks now and Jenny has me all fired up, so I thought I'd pop along and join you.

    I've spent years papercrafting but I'm so fed up with it so before Christmas, I went back to my dressmaking. A few weeks ago, something made me take an interest in quilting so I made my granddaughter a pillowcase and my grandson a simple lap quilt. I am now making myself a proper, full sized quilt and boy oh boy! It is HARD with a capital H.

    As a dressmaker, I honestly thought "how hard can it be to sew a few patches of fabric together." I can't believe how difficult it can be. The precision..well!

    Anyway, that's enough from me. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and learning loads.
    I'm not a complete idiot.....some pieces are missing!

    Welcome from Southern California. Big quilts can be time consuming. Don't we all love Jenny's tutorials?!?

            Welcome from Texas! I, too, can't believe how accurate you must be with cutting and sewing.

                      Hi Lorraine and welcome to the forum. I have not been quilting for too long and still learning every day. Fortunately there is always helpful friendly advice on here so jump in. By the way. As you can see I am from Winthorpe so probably not too far from you? :-)

                        This is a great place for help and inspiration. But beware !!!! You may spend more time here than at your machine ....

                          Welcome to the forums! I am a newbie from Central Missouri, USA. This is a wonderful place where you can get answers to almost any question you have, even if it isn't quilting related (LOL).

                              Thanks ladies. I must admit, I've spent more time browsing this forum in the last couple of days than any other place, lol.

                              Not sure that you'll be enough to actually keep my off my machine though, ha ha.

                              I know I'm going to need loads of help but don't want to dive in with problems straight away, lol.
