Come Quilt With Me….

Now I love sewing and anything to do with patchwork and quilting to the point of obsession. Sometimes it can be lonely or more than overwhelming with all these ideas buzzing around- I have a knack of starting one project only to move on to the next!

One thing I do especially enjoy is encouraging and inspiring others to dip their toes into this world no matter their ability. So the idea of an informal quilt along was born where I will be sharing ideas, projects and tutorials with the aim of encouraging people to take baby steps into this world and building up their confidence.

As well as that is the aim of motivating, sharing with each other and showing off our completed projects. I’m by no means an expert so will be learning some things too 🙂 There will be a Flickr group set up where you can add discussions, photos etc but feel free to use the hashtag #comequiltwithme on Twitter and IG.

What sort of things will there be?

To start with I’ll be discussing some of the basic components of patchwork mixed in with some quick easy projects (cushions, tote bags) as well as some more time consuming ones (tablecloth, wallhangings, quilts) plus much much more such as english paper piecing, free motion quilting… Anything really and if there’s anything you want to see feel free to shout!
Do I have to commit to everything now?

Nope. If you don’t like a post don’t worry just dip in and out with what takes your interest. Don’t even stick to what’s being posted either- just use it as a means of being creative and run with it. The main thing is to have fun and enjoy the process!

So… who’s in?

  1. Ooh I really want to say yes but, as you well know, I’m already short of time! 😉 Can I dip in and out when I get chance or is that being too much of a pain?

  10. Sounds good, my sister & I are planning to make a quilt bed throw in memory of my mom using some of her old clothes, but having never quilted before perhaps we should start small! I am in the process of moving house, so I may well just pop on see what’s happening and then just get all the stuff together ready for when I can start. Was also thinking to go to the Malvern Quilt Show if I get a chance.

    • I’ve heard good things about Malvern! That’s a lovely idea and project for you and your sister- I’m sure it will look beautiful.

      Feel free to pop in and out and if you do get any questions just shout 🙂 The hardest part is knowing where to start!
