Quilting, sewing, and handwork is something I have liked to do since I was a little girl. My first sewing machine was bought for me by my parents at a garage sale. It was a child size machine that I adored. My mother was a sewer who made things for around the house and some clothing for the two of us. As my mother cut and sewed, I picked up the little pieces of fabric which she couldn’t use. Every little piece was a treasure to me. To this day I save any useable piece of fabric for projects.
I have made quite a few quilts over the years, currently I am hooked on doing wool applique. Wool applique is using felted wool and cutting out designs and then hand stitching them together. I have made anything from penny candle mats, to table toppers, to pillows, and more. I currently have a quilt project that I need to get started on.
This blog will follow through the stages of me working on this quilt and the different things I learn as I make it. This all started with finding just the right pattern and fabrics. I ended up finding a kit which had the pattern, fabric, and instructions. I would like to become a more precise quilter and I hope this quilt helps me concentrate on that.
Here is a picture of the quilt supplies for the quilt I am going to blog about. The pattern and fabric were purchased through www.craftsy.com. This is a great site if you like to craft.
