Hi - I am not only a novice quilter (1 year ago) but new to QNN. I love this site so far, allot of information and great how to videos. I have only tackled table runners and quilts up to twin size so far. I am not much for hand sewing but I love to cut, create and sew! I have only done stitch in the ditch but plan on taking a machine quilting course next month. I would love to learn machine applique but it is not offered locally so far.
I have started planning better and learned to select fabric more carefully - I love this hobby and truly feel blessed to be able to sew and create.
I am looking for a fractured nine patch quilt pattern!
Hi Vicky and welcome to QCA.
I was not sure if you were looking for a Tossed 9-patch or you were doing one, but if you are looking here is a pattern:
I made this with 2.5" squares left over from another project and it was a lot of fun! I'm planning on making another one with bigger squares.
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
Hello Vicky. Welcome to the group. It's great having so many wonderful people with whom to share this passion for quilting.
Hi Vicky - Welcome to QCA. You have found a great place full of tons of experience.
Machine applique - I recommend a book by Beth Ferrier - her website is www.applewd.com she has a great book that teaches a style of machine applique.
I am a quiltoholic and love all parts of quilting. I do not know what I would do if one day i woke up and was told i couldn't do it. I am completely self taught - I love reading books so it was natural for me to buy quilting books. I have a few favorites that I fall back on when trying something new.
Again welcome to the wonderful world of QCA.
