Hello, I joined The Quilters Guild at the beginning of August 2021.
I am relatively new to patchwork and quilting, only just starting a few years ago but I have yet to actually complete a full quilt! I started using my sewing machine at first but I had to keep putting it away each time I used it, so got frustrated at not making much progress and constantly believing my work wasn't good enough. I tried all the different machine techniques too. Hence why I tried hand sewing, starting first with complicated (to me) squares not realising I could have hand quilted those if I had carried on. Anyway, I think I have settled on hand piecing using pins, templates and marking the fabric (not sure of it's technique name) and then also EPP. I love both and have completed two quilt tops for my Grandsons and I am still piecing 2 for my Granddaughters. I'm also making 4 dolls quilts so I can practice actually quilting them! I have now started the Lucy Boston Patchwork Of The Crosses in a simple colour palette. Hopefully one day I will be able to use fussy cutting to get a more dramatic effect.
I would love to post photos, but for some reason the site won't let me!
