    Iolo is a very handsome boy! He's a very dark brindle. My first Scottie was brindle, but the rest have been black. Our Dottie is into being a princess....she sleeps with us, loves ice cream, hates rain and puddles (or anything that gets her feet wet or dirty) and she thinks all balls belong to her. I have only had one male, Bogey (short for Bogart.) He was actually a rescued dog that was blind. He lived with us for quite some time before he passed. He took up residence in a bean bag chair and I would drag his chair and him in it from room to room so he could be part of the family. Oh the things we do for our furbabies! Thank you for sharing your picture!

    Welcome from West Yorkshire currently on holiday in Florida. I'm not exactly a newbie nor am I experienced. My first quilt was a log cabin, picked up lots of hints from Eleanor burns when I made it. You'll find Hobbycraft have lots of fat quarters at reasonable prices assuming there's one near you. Oh and take your time with your first one and you may want to start with slap quilt at first. Remember to enjoy the experience and you'll soon be hooked!!

    Welcome from Wisconsin, a state in the U.S. just south of Canada. You will love the Forum and it sounds like you are not intimidated by a challenge! Good for you. Just pick a simple pattern, no curves, diamonds or triangles at first. Also, remember that it is perfectly acceptable to make a quilt without a border. I do it all the time. Why?? Because I have so much trouble picking out border fabric. I just make an extra row of blocks to make it the size I need.

    Hi and welcome from Europe! I'm an Italian quilter!

    My advice would be... watch a ton of tutorial and sew sew sew. Start with small projects and practise on that.
    I made ton of mug rugs and zipper pouches to practise Also I enjoy sewing them.

    Recycling fabric can be a great source, also do not be afraid to use regular cotton instead of quilting cotton only.
    As long as it's good quality it's going to work like a charm. I often use it mixed with quilting cotton (but it's cheaper!)

    Enjoy!

    The footstool poufe you made from a coffee table sounds pretty.
