Just joined QCOA a few minutes ago.  I am new to piecing, quilting and embroidery, however, I am plunging right in by working on a baby quilt for a boy due in April.  Front and back are pieced, front is appliqued and sandwich is pinned.  I have scheduled a class on machine quilting because I want to do this quilt all myself.

I expect my first embroidery piece will be an appropriate label for this quilt.

Off to feed the horses....

Welcome Diane. It  sounds like you're quickly going to lose your title of "absolute beginner",  you're well on your way to being a "terrific quilter"!

Welcome!  The thing about being an "Absolute beginner" is it doesn't last for long!  Enjoy!
