    Red face Beginner quilt suggestion?

    Hello MSQC girls! Can you suggest a challenging beginner quilt for me. I've made some table runners and a small modern rail fence quilt so far. I liked Jennie's videos on the Card Trick quilt and the Star Patch quilt. Which one would be better for increasing and practicing my newly acquired quilting skills (which are not quite "skills" yet lol!)? Or would you suggest another pattern?

    Thanks for any suggestions! I love your video tutorials!

    One suggestion would be, DO NOT make a king size for your first! They are really a challenge to quilt!

    What about the Sticks and Stones quilt, or Diamond Dash.

    I would hold off on the card trick, since you are a beginner. One of the ladies in our group showed us her's recently, and she is experienced, but she said she had problems ith this one and would probably not make it again.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I made the stack and flip as one of my first, I’m a beginner too, and it went together well. Just takes a jelly roll and some background.

    My first quilt with precuts was the falling charms and I found that it was a fun lesson in layout and color placement , easy to put together but looked complicated enough that I felt proud of my results.
