Welcome Dray. My favorite saying is patterns are only suggestions. So let your imagnation loose and you will do great. Don't make quilting hard because it isn't. It's all what you make it to be. Have fun!!
Welcome, Dray ! Its get easier with each project you do. Why not start out making small wall hangings,table runners etc. I have been quilting for almost three years now and started out small and went to baby quilts then bigger ones. Hope you enjoy your time here with us. Susan
