Greetings all. I am new to sewing and quilting. In January I got married and not long after my husband was diagnosed with cancer. I decided to take up sewing as a distraction from all the stress. Now I am addicted! I made my first baby quilt after watching a tutorial from this site and am now on to my first twin sized quilt using jelly rolls and string paper piecing. I'm already thinking ahead to my next project but am trying to be disciplined and finish what I've started before jumping ahead. I'm particularly interested in string piecing and tube quilts and wonder how to make new, interesting patterns. Someday I hope to make a masterpiece but for now I'll settle for a nice, cozy, functional quilt that someone will use and love. I look forward to picking all of your expert brains!
