I’m asking for your very best advice.welcome back to the Sunday Sewcial! Grab a chair and join us! I want to know if you were teaching someone to quilt, what would be the very best advice you would give them? What advice would you not give?
I honestly don’t remember much of the advice I was given in my early quilt experiences. I probably ignored it anyway. No, that’s not really true. Did you know that for years I was an incredibly uptight quilter? Everything had to match, and every single seam had to be perfect. I thought I was having fun, but looking back, I don’t think I really was. At least now, since I allow myself to break some rules when I work freely, I really have fun. Like more fun than is legal.
So what about you? Would you tell a new quilter to make sure everything was perfect? Would you tell him or her to just enjoy the process? Would you suggest classes? What about prewashing? Hand-quilting? Should they start with any fabric, or only the best? How about thread?
What exactly would you tell the new quilter? Or are you the new quilter? If so, please read the comments. Feel free to ask questions if you have some. Many of the folks who stop by here are excellent quilters, so you may well glean some valuable insights.
So let’s hear it. Throw your very best words at me.
And don’t forget to come by tomorrow for an update on those red X quilts!
See you then!
