    Re: A big Decision for me to learn to Quilt

    Thanks for the welcome. I live south of Gig Harbor on the Key Peninsula. I have done a little quilting but nothing I am really proud of, I've always kind of thought it wasn't for me but lately I've had a change of heart. Do you belong to any guilds?

    Welcome! I'm a newbie to quilting too (have sewn many garments though) - love how Jenny's tutes make all of us feel like we are capable of producing a beautiful quilt to be loved by someone

    Welcome from MO! I started as a garment seamstress and when I aged and gained weight and grew lumpy.....well, fitting was more of an issue. Quilts fit every body and every shape! I love piecing and find such joy creating again! Nothing is better than the hum of a sewing machine........in my opinion!

    Re: A big Decision for me to learn to Quilt

    Welcome to the forum These wonderful ladies and gentlemen have a wonder wealth of knowledge to share. I have sewn since I was a little girl, the two biggest general sewing differences I have found between garment making and quilts is the seam difference - quilting only uses a 1/4" vs the 5/8" and backstitching - because a seam will be covered with another seam, quilting almost never requires backstitching. I can't tell you how many times I would backstitch on piecing a quilt just out of the sheer habit of backstitching - I finally did manage to break that habit. Have fun learning a new addictive hobby
