I also like to crochet and tat.
My 'cousin' in Canada is an avid and experienced quilter and she has now given me the quilting bug. I have bought some of her bags for my knitting projects and they are so wonderful! It got me to thinking maybe I could make my own.
Sure enough I can but she makes it look easy. I sewed my very first zipper and now I'm doing it like there's no tomorrow!
Anyway, I have found the first 2 patterns for quilts that I want to try:
1) Fancy Fox by Elizabeth Hartman (this particular one made by my 'cousin')
2) Feather Bed Quilt by Anna Maria Horner
