I'm a new egg and I've also never quilted before. I absolutely love this section of the forum - I'm learning so much already! - but I have a question... How does someone make a quilt block? The snowman swap sounds really cool, and that would be a perfect quilt to make for my mom for Christmas, plus that's something that my IL's side would actually like for Christmas, but I don't know how to quilt! A friend and I have been tossing around the idea of quilting, but I don't know where to start. Do you know of any good sites/books/etc to learn how to quilt for a beginner? Thanks so much!
