A few weeks ago I found out that someone very close to me is pregnant! This is super exciting for me because I've never had anyone so close to me be pregnant before, only cousins, and not even the close ones. So I'm really excited to hopefully make a few things for the little bambino when it arrives. But as you all know.. my crafting/sewing skills are somewhat lacking.
The one thing that I really really want to make is a quilt. I've been wanting to make one fuh-eva but never really had the motivation.. or a timeline! I only want to make a really simple patchwork-y still one, nothing too difficult for my first ever quilt attempt. I also don't have a sewing machine, so any bit that MUST require sewing I'll have to do while I'm back at the parentals over the holidays.
So my question to you all is, should I buy a quilting book of some kind? Considering I am a beginner beginner beginner, I need the very basics of what to do and how to do it. Do you know of any good quilting books out there? Whatever advice you can give me I would appreciate to the ends of the earth!
