Easy-Peasy Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Making a whole quilt on my own for the first time, even though I hadn't finished the "learn to quilt" course at the quilting shop. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I can't recommend this book too highly for absolute beginners as it covers lots of different techniques with clear instructions for a quilting project using each one - eleven in all. This is where I first found out how to make a Quillow (the author calls it a "Cushion Quilt" or "Surprise Package Quilt"). It's a wonderful book for a raw beginner and even a more experienced quilter might possibly find something useful in it.

What you will need

  • Pure cotton fabrics (only three different ones
  • two of them with metallic highlights)
  • cotton thread
  • polyester wadding

Yeah! My kind of quilt. I just saw the book on Amazon for $9 and half.com for $5 plus S/H to your location. Great job - very pretty.

Well done - I look forward to seeing a picture of one done by you!
BittyGirl asked:
I love the colors and design, but have a hard time believing it was "easy-peasy" Of course, I'm a true amateur...so only an attempt will tell. Thanks for sharing!
patz in suffolk answered:
Please believe me - this was SOOO easy - only two blocks, and it gives the illusion of being much more complicated than it is. I made it at home whilst actually doing my very first quilting classes, so you couldn't be more amateur than that! Do have a go - I'm sure you'll be so pleased with the results. Good luck!

Thank you - as I said, it was my first "solo" project and was extremely easy.
