I'm no pro. I've never even taken a class. But, I'm not in the "making curtains and pillows" category, either.

I got a serger for Christmas and decided to make my baby pajamas as my "learn to thread the fucker" project, using two dolla Wal-Mart remnant fabric covered in puppies.


I thought it was alright. But... you can see the hem. Heh.

It is simple, but you did a good job with the angle on that fabric.

I want to learn how to quilt. Where should I begin? I'm making a trip to the library, but are there any good websites or videos I should look at?

I already have a sewing machine and a basic sewing kit (needles, pins, scissors, fabric markers and such.) Do I need any special supplies? I've sewed a couple of skirts, bags, and pillowcases.

I really love this book: https://www.amazon.com/Practical-Gu...chwork+quilting

You're going to want a rotary cutter, a self-healing mat, and a quilter's ruler. Basically anywhere these are sold, there will be a crazy, obsessed old woman that will give you eleven million opinions on which one you want.

Other than that, if you are pretty good at a quarter inch seam, and you're ready.
