Quilting and Applique - Buy or Supply

I love quilts, especially ones like the little Beaver below that tell a story. I have tried my hand at quilting and used to love to piece the fabrics together. I have finished three of them and I do cherish each one because of the time it takes to make these handmade treasures. They are pieces that are cherished forever and handed down as heirlooms. Maybe buying quilts is your thing -- if not buying, how about trying to make one on your own. Here are some fabrics, threads and a how to book to get you started or visit How To Quilt, this site has a wealth of quilting information to get you started and beyond.
