Slide 1: ==== ==== Get 206 Vintage Quilt Patterns and Step-by-Step Instructions from America's Foremost Quilt Designers http://weblifenow.com/quilts ==== ==== The art of quilting does not include a definite method to follow. The best method for you will be the one that fits with your personality and skills. Some people like using old methods such as manually cutting every patch with scissors and using templates. Others feel more comfortable taking advantage of what technology has to offer. And lastly, some combine methods for certain projects. For me, I just use whatever technique helps me save time. To begin with, some of the first things that are important to get familiar with are patterns, fabric, color, block construction and layout. If you do individual searches about these it will help you acquire knowledge in the techniques that are currently being used. This way, you will also begin to learn quilting terms. For example, studying a few quilting patterns will help you understand a quilters dialog. Also make an effort to learn quilt block patterns and patterns for complete quits. This will be very helpful in your progress as a quilter. Once you have a sense of patterns, knowing about quilting fabrics would be the next essential step. Before you attempt to wash or cut any fabric make sure that you are very familiar with the fabric's characteristics. This will help you avoid any undesired results. For example, fabric grain can either enhance or destroy your accuracy. If you prewash quilt that you were not supposed to you might end up with bleeding problems. And lastly, some fabrics can easily be burned. As you can see if you want a successful quilting project make sure you know enough about the fabric being. The next thing would be to get acquainted with the colors that work best for your project. There is a huge variety of colors and texture. If you do not do research before you attempt to buy fabric you will end up confused at the store. Picking your colors will end up being a headache when it's supposed to be the fun part. To make your color choosing easier make sure you have an understanding of a simple color wheel that can help you in choosing colors and fabric. Another important thing to know before you hit the store is color value. What I mean by that is how dark or light a color is in relation to other colors. This will help you design a beautiful color coordinated quilt. Now that we have an idea of the fundamental of fabric it is a good idea to learn about patchwork quilt block bone structure. Knowing this will help you fit blocks together when you are designing and sowing your quilt. Remember that every step is important. If you take the time to learn about quilt blocks not only will you save time but also your quilt will come out very beautiful. Lastly, knowing standard mattress sizes before you begin the design of the quilt and buy fabrics will result very helpful. This will help you decide on what technique to use, what patterns to implement and how much fabric to buy. Remember being prepared and doing your research
Slide 2: beforehand will save you a great amount of time and headaches. Find out what works best for you. Experiment and learn as much as you can. This well help you be creative in your quilt designing. If you like to be up to date with technology use every technological resource you can. But most importantly have fun, lots of fun while quilting.
