How cute is this fabric?! It should be here Tuesday/Wednesday and I’m super excited! (is that a bit sad?)
I’m planning to make my first ever quilt, and whilst I do have a sewing machine it’s super old and I’m not completely sure how to use it. I’m hoping it won’t be too difficult to do by hand, but I’ll admit I am slightly nervous about it. I don’t want it to go wrong!
Should I sew all the patches together, and then add the wadding and the backing fabric? Or should I do it all in one go? Do I add a border? What is quilt binding? How should I sew it? What stitch should I use? Do I sew each patch together with a hem on the inside? I’m so confused! I think I’m definitely going to have to do some major googling and see if theres a quilting 101 for dummies, or a quilting from start to finish kind of site that I can slave over before getting started… There’s a million questions I need answering!
If anyone has any advice or tips – please let me know! I’ll let you all know when the fabric arrives!
