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!
