    Hi Patty! I am pretty sure the quilt police are NOT looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing things any "right" way, and if you've checked out tutorials around the Internet you already know there are lots of "right" ways to do things! I think your quilts are FANTASTIC and I know your moms will love them!

    What is your next project?

    Welcome!

    Hi Patty welcome from Massachusetts. Your quilts are great I like the red one myself partial to stars. The only reason the woman at the quilt store discouraged you was because she didn't get your $ for classes. You'll learn and as far as fabric if your not too picky you can finds lots of quilting supplies even used sometimes(but that 's good for rulers and such) on e bay.I find that a lot of quilters clean out their stash and list good brand name materials,if you want you can even buy scraps just be sure to ask questions .

    Hi Patty
    Welcome from Southern California. Your first quilts are way better than my first quilts!!! They are lovely, especially like the red wonky star ones.. Don't let anyone discourage you from trying new things with your quilts. Classes can be helpful, if the teacher is knowledgeable & kind.. Sounds like the the lady at the LQS may be knowledgeable but not very kind,,,
    Have fun with your new hobby, we look forward to seeing more of your work.
    May the road rise up to meet you...
    May the wind be always at your back...
    May you be in Heaven a half hour before the Devil knows you're dead...

    Welcome! Your quilts are beautiful! So glad that you were able to get them done by Mother's day. Jenny does an amazing job of teaching others. : )
