Cele..Welcome to my "We Love Purses" group. As to your question about learning to quilt I have a couple of suggestions..the first is if you have a local fabric or quilt shop see if they have someone who teaches classes in quilting..that way you can get hands on experience with someone that can answer questions you may have about tips and techniques and the second if you have no shops in your immediate area pick up some beginners quilt books(not pattern are right they assume you already know all the basics) that will show you the tools you should have and tips on getting started. My biggest suggestions is start with a pillow or wall hanging..small projects so that in a short time you feel like you have accomplished something..starting with a large quilt can get overwhelming. And on this site you have a world of experienced quilters that can give you loads of suggestions and tips with any question you have. Hope this helps! Carla
