    I want to join.
    Don't think i can participate in any swaps right now... and i'm a total newbie to quilting, but i'm very eager to learn!
    Thanks again for the links to the rag quilts... trying to scrounge up some change my kids haven't claimed yet so i can start buying some fabric to start on my first quilt.
    Guess that means digging the old (and i mean OLD- like 20 years old) sewing machine out of storage.

    If you are just beginning to learn to quilt, may I make a suggestion? don't go buy new material. I go to yard sales, thrift shops, etc. and buy 100% cotton shirts - then cut them up for quilts. I posted a Wanted on our freecycle and got tons of shirts and old jeans that had broken zippers, etc.

    I am always up for hearing suggestions. The rag quilt i want to make is for my newest DS, so that material i will buy, but we've got a bunch of old t-shirts i can practice on first (all boys in the house- so lots of shirts get torn LOL!).

    I think I am going to try a rag quilt too. And I would love to make the kids some quilts out of their old clothing, KWIM? I've saved some, like ds's "I'm the big brother" embroidered shirt. I figured that would make a cute square.

    I would like to join. I am just now finishing my very first quilt! I'm sewing the binding on. It is 81x96 and I hand quilted the entire thing. It took 2 years on-and-off. I'm so excited that it's almost done. So is my hubby, since it's for him! Now I can start the next one!! Hehehehehe!!

    Yes, please add me!

    I would like to join. I have never made a quilt, but I would LOVE to learn how. I keep thinking the first quilt I want to make is a jean quilt....I love the look of them.

    I love to sew and have been wanting to do a real quilt but have not gotten the nerve up. I have everything I would need except for the right people to ask questions to. I would love to join this group. I am excited!!

    I would like to join if you're still taking people. I can't do any swaps at the moment because I'm finishing up 4 of them, but I would still like to join!
