There are many ways to
accomplish the same task in quilting. However, there are some rules
that are firm. This site will teach you what you absolutely must know
to become a successful quilter. You will learn some basic
techniques, that you will use over and over.
As you progress in your
quilting skills, you will learn other ways of doing things, and
shortcuts to make each part of the quilting process faster. As
part of this, you will buy more rulers and other sewing equipment.
This site will get you
going with a minimum amount of money. One of the things that I
suggest is that you go on Ebay and buy some fabric that is pre-cut into
squares. They are very inexpensive, and all the work of washing and
cutting the fabric has usually already been done.
Find a seller with a large
feedback, and read a little of it to make sure other people have been
happy with their fabric. You can buy sets with just a few
prints, or but a wide variety in each package. Buy some 4-inch and
6-inch squares. Use will use them in the lessons.
You will be doing a lot of
practice sewing, so you will need some discount fabric. If you
don't want to buy yardage, pick up some fat quarters.
(approx 18x22 inches) have the same amount of fabric as 1/4 yard
of fabric, but they are more versatile in allowing you to cut bigger
blocks, as a quarter yard of fabric is only about 9-inches long.
Master the skills on this site, and you
will be on the road to being an excellent quilter!
