Now your interested, but need some help deciding what to do...well here's a start. I've posted links to some projects that you may want to try.
Remember all of the fabric manufactuers have free patterns available on their websites, as do many of the designers. The quilting magazines also have websites with projects & patterns, as do many of the Quilt Shops online, and there are others that are just devoted to quilt block patterns.
If your going to hang your quilt you'll need to add a sleeve to the back. The Quilt Show has a great video about that here.
If making anything for donation to a hospital or health care related organization please check with them about their requirements. All items should be laundered and placed in a sealed bag to keep them as clean as possible.
Please go to donation guidelines for more info.
