     I do quilting and wondered if others out there also quilt?  I am worki
ng on a quilt top called Squash Blossom which I got from the quilting magaz
ine Fons and Porters "Love of Quilting" March/April issue 2014.  As you can
 tell from the theme that it is native American pattern.  I am doing it in  
bright rust material with Indian designs, turquoise, hot pink, bright yello
w.  The border will have Indian rust print.   Let me hear from any of you q
uilters or if you know of a quilt group please give their address.

You might take a look at rec.crafts.textiles.quilting (I don't  
quilt, so I have never subscribed to that group).

Good luck,

I don't quilt either but I have been seriously toying with the idea of maki
ng a king size as you go quilt using the Dresden plate pattern.  I've alrea
dy gotten the template for the 'spokes' and the inner circle. I've already  
bought a bit of fabric as well and plan on adding to my stash every few wee
ks.  

I do have a dedicated sewing/craft/bedroom (bedroom is a distant third in t
his description) but need some sort of system to store material.  I do see  
lots of those plastic rolling chests/drawers but they really haven't peaked
 my interest.

Hello Beverly,
    Thank you for your information.  I have a chest that I keep all my fabr
ics in except for small left over pieces and they are just in a tub.  Since
 I like scrappy quilt this tub get used quite a bit.  
    Now as far as the Dresden plate pattern, you might want to make somethi
ng really easy first, like just a 2 1/2, 3, 4, 5 inch blocks all the same s
ize. maybe a wall hanging, table topper, baby quilt for friend/relative, ju
st something small to start with first. A huge king size quilt might over w
helm you as a first.  Good luck on your project.

When I start this it will be a quilt as you got king size quilt.  The block
s will be sewn and quilted one at a time thus making it manageable througho
ut most of the project.  It's pretty much the Betty Cotton Theory Quilting  
method.  I know a lot of people do wall hangings but they are just not my '
cup of tea' nor are baby quilts.
