Welcome to the world of quilting. I have been quilting for 7 years, and it was my passion. Until I realized, what do I do with all these quilts? And I have a lot.:rofling:
BlockCentral forum is a great place for advice, but they are getting alittle more political these days, and that takes the fun out of the site. But they did have great tips for beginners.
A walking foot is a must. And just always make sure I have an exact 1/4 seam and your pieces are cut correctly, and you will have a beautiful quilt. (personnally, I do not pre wash fabric because I like the aged look when it shrinks after it is washed, I use a color setter so I don't worry about fabric bleeding)
But now, my passion is knitting, I love it. I never knew you could have a yarn stash!
I knit all the time now, because it is a portable hobby. But I still do some quilting, I love that still too.
So, add me to the quilters that now knit.
