To Make A Quilt Is Quite Simple

Jul 24, 2008
Quilting stores and websites make it easy to get the supplies so you can make a quilt. The vast number of places that are available to purchase supplies from makes it easy on the quilter. Because there are such a variety of items to choose from, it's easy to get caught up in a "quilting rush."

By stocking up on a variety of supplies, when it comes time to begin a project, you will only need to decide who the quilt will be for and if it will be for a special occasion. You won't have to rush out and buy anything because you will already have everything you need on hand.

If you are using a kit, then making one is pretty self-explanatory. You just need to follow the instructions. There will also be helpful tips and guidelines that you can use to help finish your quilt in a timely manner.

The fabric pieces that are included in quilt kits are pre-cut, so you don't have to worry about cutting out blocks to use. It is very important that all of your quilt blocks are uniform in size, so that the edges will match up nicely when you sew them together.

When you are doing your first one, it is nice not to have to worry about this step. You can move on to cutting out your own quilt blocks as you grow more comfortable with your skills. When you are making a quilt from a kit for the first time, it can be just as rewarding as making one from scratch with only a pattern to follow.

After you have made several quilts and have figured out some of the in's and out's of how to make a quilt, if an idea pops into your head or you see a combination of colors and patterns that you like, then you can either head to the store to purchase the materials needed to complete your upcoming project or you can use the supplies that you already have on hand.

When you want to make a quilt and are just starting out in this wonderful hobby, it can seem daunting, and can easily become very expensive when you start buying and accumulating the supplies needed. But, the act of giving a handmade one to someone dear to you is extremely heartening and will bring you as much joy as it does for the person who is receiving the quilt from you.
