my first post on crafster!

I think I may want to make a quilt, of course I have no idea where to start - so I figured coming in here and doing a lot of reading would help.  but I felt rude to read without saying hi first!

I am in the UK, I enjoy lots of fibre arts - mostly sewing but I will knit (after a fashion) crochet and have just discovered wet felting (my new latest obsession!)

Welcome to quilting and craftster!  I think you'll find both very rewarding and addictive!

Welcome to Craftster - one of the most dangerous sites on the web!  I am an experienced quilter, but I love all the inspiration I get here.  After looking at everyone's work, I get motivated/inspired to start something new (a dangerous proposition for me!).

Have fun and be sure to show us your work!


One is less than three.

Welcome!  The best place to start would be with some fabric ... anything that jumps out at you or appeals to you.  Beyond that, and a few simple supplies, it's all downhill!  Don't worry about rules, or the "right" way to do anything.  You'll have a lot of luck here with answers to any specific questions you have along the way.  Have fun!
