Tips and Humor From Kaye....
What part of quilt making do you like?
Since this is supposed to be fun, you don't have to do it all. Each part of the quilt making takes different skills and thought processes, and you may want to partner with someone to work on a quilt.
I enjoy the planning and piecing of the quilt top, so that is what I do. I send all of my quilts out to be machine quilted by someone who likes to do the quilting.
Designing a quilt can be done in a variety of ways. I start with a particular technique, such as cutting diamonds. Some of you let the fabric direct you; some make a pattern that is already planned.
Starting a project takes a lot of thought; pattern and fabric choices, etc. When I'm in the starting mode, I start several projects.
Continuing a project takes attention to accuracy.
Finishing a project is like heaven to some of you; it's a sad ending to others.
