OMGOsh--I'm in the "want to" category. I've made 3 quilts, but it was really making three 6 ft. Pieces of fleece into blankets by "quilting" them to other, older blankets. One has a cotton backing only, and the other two have wool sandwiched in between.
I have the sewing room set up--I'm even sending money to my DD before she quits JoAnne Fabrics (to study for the Bar), so I can catch a sale AND take advantage of her employee discount, so I can buy a bolt of cotton batting.
I even met a big time quilter this week at a ReFi signing. She is a nurse and has been quilting for about 15 years. She has a frame, a "hanger?" (to hang your design and test it before piecing together, and two quilting machines.
I have a book and I have been studying up before I start making some test quilts.
I understand that when you buy your see through rulers you should buy all of the same brand bc they will help you to keep everything square.
PLEASE, more pictures!!
