One goal I have for 2013 - and this is a BIG one - is to make a quilt. I have made one before when I attended a Community Education Quilt in a Day class. For the class you brought all of your fabric already picked out and cut to size and then just basically sewed and sewed all day. It was a long time ago and anything I may have learned is now forgotten!
For Christmas I received this book by Elizabeth Hartman. The front section of the book includes basic quilting information and terminology, and then there are 12 quilt projects ranging from beginner to intermediate beginner.
I've looked through the book and I selected two of the beginner patterns that I'm considering for my 2013 Quilt Project.
I told my daughter she would be getting a quilt for Christmas, so I have a clear deadline which I hope will inspire me to get it done.
I'll update you on my progress, and feel free to leave any quilting tips you may have in the comment section.
