Hi, my name is Cathy and I'm fairly new to quilting. Most everything I know about quilting, I've taught myself. I've got an aunt in Indianapolis who showed me how to put my first quilt together but other than that,I've been on my own.
Any suggestions, tips, ideas etc. would be much appreciated.
welcome to the group. There is a wealth of information here. Take a look around. If you have specific questions you'll definitely get an answer. Every aspect and level of quilting is represented here.
If you are a paid member, QNNtv is a very valuable resource.
Welcome Cathy!! I'm a neighbor so to speak. I hail from southcentral Nebraska. I, too, am self taught and this is definately the place to be for learning. I learn something new everyday!! You will get information beyond belief here. Again welcome!!
Hi Cathy and welcome to QCA. This a great place for new quilters as there are many talented quilters here ready to share their knowledge. We're glad to have you with us.
Welcome to the club! I, too, am a newer quilter. I am going to my first quilt class on Monday where we will be working on a Log Cabin quilt. Prior to this point, I have only done 2 quilts. I am a third generation quilter and my Aunt Judy (who posts on this site too) has been teaching me and giving me some quick tips as well!
I hope to learn more about you!
Hi Cathy, Welcome to QCA. I am not too far away from you in Enid Oklahoma - I am a self - taught quilter too. I recommend watching the videos available on QNNtv - watch EB on Quilt in a Day - both are very instrumental in my learning. I read a lot of books on the subject too - it takes just practice and patience and learning how to do different blocks the right way - try never to take a short cut unless it is one that will lessen the work but not the quality.
Any questions about anything feel free to ask here - lots of great quilters are available so pick their brains.
Welcome to QCA! You can sure learn alot from the talented ladies here.
If you're a reader, here are two excellent books for beginners:

Hi Cathy and welcome to QCA
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
Hi Cathy and Welcome to the group,
I'm in East Tn. (Upstate NY transplant). I'm also self taught. Been quilting for about 10-12 years. Ask any question you need help with. Watching the videos and getting instruction books really help. I watched Eleanor Burns (www.quiltinaday.com) on pbs for a couple years and finally said to myself "I could do that".....and the rest is history.
Enjoy and ask away.
