Seconding the advice of the walking foot!
Dorian, that quilt is lovely!
Thank you Ladies.
Sarah, I used a jelly roll from the Sunkissed line, from Sweet water. I LOVE this line!!
Here's google images of the Sunkissed line, it's a few years old, but you can still find some of it for sale.
I just bought a buggy barn book and am so excited to make the cute little boy quilt!! It's the one with trucks and tractors. I think called convoy? Has anyone made a buggy barn or stack n whack quilt? What advice can you offer??
Sorry Luz, I haven't made either one. Good luck though, and have fun!
My first quilt- the patchwork bit is now done! (Far from perfect, but I'm so proud, as I never used a sewing machine before I started it!)
I'm off to a nice big fabric shop next weekend to talk to the ladies who work there and get some advice on what I need next
mrsgruffalo that is beautiful well done i bet your really proud x
You did a great job! It's turning out so nice
Great job MrsGruffalo!! Quilting is so much fun. Glad you're enjoying it.
Im currently making my first quilt (Ive done some patchwork before (self taught) but never a quilt.
This is the quilt top Im in the process of making (sampler quilt). Ive still to add coloured borders to it and more sashing afterwards. Ive also attached piccies of the cushion covers I made for my lounge using Pure by Sweetwater fabric (love it!).
Im also in the process of making this baby quilt (Im using the words Eat, Sleep, Poop Repeat instead of the wording shown. Only just starting this one so no piccies.)
You're doing a lovely job Sunshine! I, too, enjoy Sweetwaters fabrics.
geat job so beautiful.
im still cutting up my babygrows hopefully have some pics one day lol
Wow sweetheart! I love the pillows! My quilting project is taking forever. I never seem t have more than 30 minutes to myself before I'm having to feed or change or entertain a baby....
right ladies need help please... ive just picked up my quilt again having not touched it since feb and am struggling to find a walking foot for my machine. i think this is because a) i have an old/cheap machine and b) i dont really know what im looking for. so i have a janome cj14 and no instruction manual for it. so if you wonderful ladies can find a uk supplier for a walking foot ( to prevent my puckering problem) i will be very grateful
How about this one?
I just started on my very first quilt, the top is now done, and I am in the process of putting my 3 layers together now, I am hoping to have it all done by the end of tomorrow so I can start my next one
thanks! i did come across that pne but miss-read the list of machines so thought i couldnt use it . anyhooos it turns out i have a specialist sewing machine shop 10 mins walk away in my local town so i bobbed in and hey presto got what i needed .only thing is its been nearly 4 months since i last touched my quilt i feel like im starting from scratch again. alsi how do i seal the sides once ive quilted i all together?
Just google quilt binding tutorial. I like doing bias binding, but there are other ways to do it too. If you have any specific questions about it once you decide which method to use I can help
Love this thread! I just started sewing at the beginning of the year, I am going to attempt to make a quilt after I get my rotary cutter in the mail, next week
thnaks - got my binding material today, all washed and ironed ready to go. i looked at some vids on bias binding and found it really complicated esp since Im new to all this. Ive decided to go with double binding (it looks easier) and think i can do a tidy job of it. im hoping to finish the quilt by today...so excited!
in hindsight i would have liked to put some kind of message on it ...love from mummy etc but i guess its too late for that?
