Are you new to quilting or curious about this type of crafting project? Quilting is a needlecraft and a way to make beautiful, soft bed linens. You will especially enjoy quilting if you are good with details and have a passion for matching patterns and colors together. One of the best things about quilting is that while there are many “classic” quilting patterns – no quilt is every like any other because of the individual quilter who makes it. You are always going to make color and pattern choices that are unique and unlike anyone else, this is just one of the things that makes homemade quilts so special. Quilting used to be something that every woman did, to help keep her family warm in the cooler months. Today with mass manufactured goods we have no worries of making everything we need. That’s why when someone you care about takes the time to pick out a quilting pattern, fabrics and then to sew a quilt just for them, it is so special. This is a craft that can be done by beginners and you’ll be thrilled to know there are literally dozens of beginning quilter craft projects out there for you to try. If making a full size quilt at first seems intimidating – start with a baby quilt or lap quilt so you are making something a bit smaller. One of the classic sayings about sewing is “a stitch in time saves nine.” This is very true. To be a great quilter you need to have a bit of patience, while we’ve found you some quilts that can be done in a weekend or an afternoon, more quilting projects take much longer. But we know you’ll be thrilled with the beautiful results!
