I don't think it's necessary to block them. I didn't block mine, and it turned out just fine.

Thanks Lindsay! The only one I knit was the purple one in front. The other two were sewn together with "fleece" fabric.

Thanks cheley! I love that quilt too. I wish I knew how to make things like that, but I've never even tried quilting before.

I got this wedding ring quilt on eBay for 20 bucks about 6 years ago. I keep it on our bed all the time.

- YO , pull the loop you just made through the other 2. (you will have one left)

then just yarn over and poke it through another hole. Does that make sense? I'm willing to help if I can. Crochet is one of those things that once you see it done it's like "OH!".
If all crochet instructions were taught like this- I would crochet.

Sandy, quilting is to knitting what scrambling eggs is to a souffle. You can quilt!

There are thousand of resources on the 'net, and kits and stuff to start out with, if you want. There is nothing at all to it, especially as you can already sew. I made my first quilts entirely by hand, then machine stitched the tops, then rented time on the big machines that do the actual quilting for you. The only limitations are your imagination and the amount of time you have. Well, maybe space, too. A big problem right now.

I'm very partial to the wedding ring pattern, have one on my bed. My favorite quilt is a very old one made from pieces of the dresses of my husbands grandmother and her sisters.

I really do want to learn to quilt one day. But, just like you mentioned, I don't have the space available right now.

Our little house is bursting at the seams. Maybe one day when my step-son moves out, we'll have more space.
