Quilting newbies

Me and Tracy love sewing anything, clothes, cushions, curtains, bags, bits and pieces – but the one thing we hadn’t tried was quilting.  At the beginning of this year I enrolled for 6 patchwork quilting lessons at Guthrie & Ghani and I loved it…   From this I booked me and Tracy on a quilting day.

I forgot to take a picture of the sample – we were making a large table mat.  It took me and Tracy 6 hours to make 3 small squares and we have several more to make then the border and appliqué before we even begin to make it up!

They're very small but took ages to make!

We’ve discovered that quilting is very slow and time consuming – a real labour of love.  Although dressmaking will always be our main passion, we have definitely been bitten by the quilting bug…..

    I love the idea of handmade quilts. But I think I would simply never be able to choose which colours and patterns to piece together.
