After I had pieced my first two quilts, I wanted to know how to actually quilt them. I saw an ad for a quilting class. I signed up, hoping to learn how to quilt, only to find out that it was a piecing class, not a quilting class.
I did learn a lot. One of the handouts was a quilting dictionary. I had no idea that there was a quilting language.
We made a sampler wall hanging. I still didn’t know how to “quilt”, but just sewed the top, batting and backing together.
I started to quilt using the Quilters Newsletter magazine. In one of the issues, I found a pretty wall hanging. At the time, it was so hard to make. It took a long time. Of course, at that time, I made templates, drew around them and cut out each piece separately. Now, as I look at it, it is just nine patches and strip pieces. Using a rotary cutter and ruler would make this wall hanging very easy to make.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
