I've mentioned before that I am intimidated by quilting. It used to be quilting and zippers, but I'm over the zipper fear now. When I read that I Have To Say was hosting a quilt-a-long, and after she assured me that she would be posting lots of pictures and directions step by step, I was on board. It does involve fabric shopping, so that helped too.
Starting the 25th of this month, she's going to be giving directions and pictures once a week to step by step put together a 50x62 quilt. It will last 6 weeks. I'm going to see if I can keep up. It looks like a nice quilt for a beginner.
