To make matters worse, since starting the blog, the thought of completing a quilt seems farther away than ever before. Making a quilt just seems too time-intensive. This bothers me. The strong desire to explore quilting further keeps gnawing away at me. I certainly don’t want to ignore quilting here on my blog! I love the art just too much. Not to mention, I originally started this blog so I could carve out time in my life to create and make the things I’ve always wanted to make.
Talk to you soon!
This is so exciting! I am ready to be inspired!!! <3
I love quilting. I used to work in my Mother’s quilting shop. The joy is not only in the finished product, it is also in the colour/fabric selection, pattern selection, cutting out, sewing, pinning…..etc. While it can be a lengthy process compared to some crafts each step can be fun especially when you are doing it with others.
Hint 1 starting on an easy pattern and smaller ‘lap’ sized quilt allows the crafter to gain a great understanding of the process.
Hint 2 having the right equipment makes things easier.
Hint 3 Once you understand the piecing aspects you can start creating your own designs!
“One should enjoy every aspect of their hobby to exercise their creative desires.”
Pasmit – thank you so much for your helpful hints. Those are great suggestions. I’m really looking forward to exploring quilting further.
Yay! I’m excited to follow this series – I’ve been wanting to have a go at making a patchwork quilt for a while now! I recently made a quilted cover for my ipad which I think was quite a good starting point – I essentially just made a tiny quilt (with a pretty patterned fabric on the outside and a plain lemon fabric on the inside), then sewed it in half like an envelope and added a button closure.
Caitlin, It sounds like you are already on your way! Sounds beautiful.
Yippie!!!!! ready to start!!!!
Thank you for your clever initiative, xx Alessandra
