    try JoAnns website or even Hancock Fabrics, and then they can link you to quilting books and stuff like that... you could even search Quilting shops in your area with a search engine and maybe find something. They have classes and a lot of them will get you to make a quilt in just a few weeks!!!

    I love quilting. I made one with my MIL before we moved out here - she was teaching me. It's so fun, but I get so sad when it's done LOL...

    Thanks. This is a whole new thing for me. I have never sewed in my life. John's grandma got me a sewing machine last week and now he expects me to make all kinds of stuff. Once I get started I will be really anxious to see the finished product, too.

    no you don't have to have a sewing machine, but it makes it MUCH easier and faster!!! machine quilting has become the new age of quilting, though some people still hand quilt
