a little bit. The thing is that I seem to be in a place where I buy the books in hopes that it will translate into skill and, of course, that doesn't happen. Just looking at the books doesn't automatically bestow skill - there definitely needs to be lots of practice.
I am determined to learn how to do some simple custom quilting and I know that my first work will definitely look like a beginner did it but then I am a beginner and I am nervous but excited. We all have to start somewhere and the first thing is to figure out what to quilt where!!
