Welp, I went and did it. I started my first quilt. Eva kindly suggested I start with something relatively simple (i.e. squares) and generously loaned me a book. I picked the nine patch quilt to make for my guest bedroom.
It will eventually be about 60"X60". I am making it slightly smaller than what the pattern calls for because it will be an extra blanket on a full size bed. I also haven't cut the triangles to go around the sides.
I have a question for you all though. Do you think I need to add another goldish color that is between the light gold and the medium golds? I had one in my hands and then put it back. Now I am thinking I need it.
Thanks in advance for the suggestions!
