Now this isn’t exactly my first quilt, however last time I made what I consider to be some critical mistakes...
- I used corduroy instead of high quality cotton
- I didn’t actually "quilt the layers" because I couldn’t work out how to prevent puckering
- I didn’t know how to do an edge binding.
I decided recently that I wanted to have a proper attempt at quilting to spice up my guest room and attempt a new skill, so I started out by watching some youtube videos. I found the best ones were by Jeanette White who shows everything from basic piecing to binding and other skills and techniques.
Then I looking at examples of other peoples works and finally settled on a style I wanted to attempt. The idea for the pattern is based on Kathleen Bissett’s pattern, however being unable to find a source to purchase it, I have been making it up as I go along.
The next step will be to do a "stach and slash" to create my pieces and start putting them together.
