So, my best friend is pregnant with her first baby, wahoo! I feel inspired to make something as my gift and I was thinking about a baby quilt. The problem is I have never done a quilt and the extent of my sewing is buttons and pillows in home economics class (do they still have this??). Is this something a beginner can handle? It doesn't need to look professional but I'd like it to be presentable Any tips or ideas? What is a good brand of sewing machine for a beginner? My aunt suggested a "disappearing nine" pattern because it looks complicated but is on the easier side. Any help appreciated!
