Next Blog Series

By Seamssewcreative
After having blogged, and learned so much about thread in doing Thursday's thread, I think I'm going to continue with that same idea in my next blogging series. This time I'm going to tackle the entire quilting process, start to finish.
My goal is to post on the following steps to creating a quilt:
  • Measuring and cutting
  • Piecing and ironing (both quilt top and backing)
  • Basting
  • Quilting (going over how to free motion, how to use a walking foot, and how to quilt if you don't want to do either of these methods)
  • Binding
I will share any short cuts or tips I have learned, and try out some new ones I have read about but not tried myself. Also I will go over common mistakes (ones that I made the first time around ;) as well as how to fix them (if possible).
Hopefully I will not only learn about the process on a more in-depth level myself, but can help give a beginner quilter the confidence to start a blanket or quilt on their own :) I will be starting next Friday, so hopefully between now and then I can finish Sentimental Me... I'm hoping the deadline will force me to sit down and finish it.
Happy sewing!
