    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!

    first off [​IMG]
    here is a web site that might help, it also has a lot of patterns in it.

    if you think you can make a block join in the June swap and you only have to make one block, it will give you some practice.

    Thanks for the reply and the welcome!

    I must be blind because I'm not seeing a link. Thanks for the advice to join the June swap, that sounds much less scary!
