Making a patchwork quilt for my dd's birthday present. Her birthday is in may!! < panic stations >

I'm using old clothes from various family members etc do its really personal.

I have never made or done anything like this before! Today I have started cutting my squares and have realised I need more fabric and more pins!

I have a sewing machine but any advice, hints or tips would be welcome!

Or if you live in SE23 any fancy helping me... I provide coffee and cake!

Have I bitten off way more than I can chew??? Please help!!

Ooh have just stumbled across this thread - ideal. I've been saving some of dds clothes to make a patchwork quilt but no idea where to start. Am going to have a nosy at the link someone posted up thread. It could be a long, slow process as I don't have a sewing machine so will have to do it by hand... We'll just have to see whether I have the patience to finish the thing!
