I'm definitely going to *try* to make him a quilt for his Christmas... but I've never actually made one before and don't know the first thing about it. If anyone knows a good tutorial I'd be very thankful.
i love all things crafty (obviously if i'm here), and i became intrigued by the quilting section on here, just from info off of this site (including links people posted) i was able to make a quilt for my husband's bday this year. I just made a blue and black checkered one and he absolutely loved it, he's even taking it with him to iraq when he goes later this year.
oh and that was pretty much my first time sewing on a sewing machine too, my mom's was always broken when i lived at home and couldnt afford one until earlier this year. It's not too difficult, you just need loads of patience. good luck!
