Just a little background about me. I got into quilting when I was pregnant with my second baby (my son) the summer of 2011. I made 2 baby quilts, a car seat and a stroller cover in 2011. And got totally hooked into quilting. In 2012 I have spent accumulating 100s of yards of fabric dreaming of turning them into quilts. I have so many ideas and techniques which I want to try out and share my experience. I want to put my thoughts into action and wanted to start this boot camp. If you're like me eager to make lots of lots of quilts (at least 12 quilts in 2013) or want to get into quilting this boot camp is perfect for you.
The only requirement is that you should be able to stitch a straight line or come up to speed on your sewing skills. Just to take the pressure off of making 12 quilts in this new year. There is no size limits for your quilted projects. You choose the size of the quilt/pillow/bag you want to make.
Each month we will be making a quilt start to finish. The posts will be bi-monthly:
1. First Sunday of the month I will be sharing Tools, Techniques and Supplies for making your quilt top.
2. Third Sunday of the month I will be sharing tips on quilting. In January we will use your regular sewing foot to quilt the top and starting February we will branch into free-motion quilting.
What could be better than you joining me for this fun and speedy ride of quilt making?
If would like to join for this fun boot camp, please leave me a comment here.
Just to give you an some idea on what to expect, here are some example below showing highlights for first 3 months:
January - Quilting basics
February - Coin Quilts
March - Tube Quilting
More information to come soon.
