Have You Ever Made a Quilt?

Have you ever seen something that just sticks in your head and you still think about it months later? I see lots of things I like but there are only certain things that catch my attention for the long haul. When that happens I it’s a sure sign that it’s really a great fit for our home.

My most recent infatuation of this sort has been with this quilt.

I saw this triangle quilt a few months ago from Audire at Blue is Bleu. I think it would be great for Nikolas’ room which needs some love and attention. I love the idea of snuggling up in a handmade quilt.

I’ve been looking around for a good tutorial and I think I found one here. It looks simple enough for a first quilt. I’ve put together a color combination I like from Fabric.com. This is probably one of those long haul projects that I’ll put down and pick back up. I like to have a bunch of projects going at the same time (if you couldn’t tell already).

So my question today is has anyone ever sewn a quilt? Anything I need to know? Any tips?

    Wow, great project to try! I bet it will look amazing. I took a quilting class years ago… I am a bit too impatient to take it on at this time in my life, I am afraid. But you sure can create some beautiful keepsakes.

      That’s exactly why I never have done a quilt. No patience. But I think maybe I’m willing to try for this one. It might be worth it :)

    If you can sew a straight line then you can quilt! Binding can be a pain, but there are cheaters way, like stitching in the ditch. I’ve only made a few so I’m not an expert though! Have fun! It’s a very cute design!

      That’s what I’m hoping Kathryn! You’re right the binding looks like the hardest part. Thank goodness for Google!

    I sewed a quilt almost a year ago and it has been sitting this whole time in my craft room waiting to get bound!?! It was so much fun to do and I can see where it gets addicting…but maybe I would be better off sending it somewhere else to do the binding! Then, I could actually use it! ;) Good luck with yours! It’s so fun and would be perfect for a kid’s room! Jesse @ Scout & Nimble

      Yeah maybe it would be a good idea to send it out to get bound. I bet the Joann’s by me knows where to do that. Thanks for the idea.
