Making Beautiful Traditional Quilts

Author: Administrator
One of the excellent things about making quilts is the tradition behind quilt making and the usefulness of the final product. It is certainly lovely to have a hobby that can improve your life by either being functional or by being saleable.

One of the other good things about quilt making is that it is so flexible. If there is more than one way to skin a cat, there are thousands of ways of making a quilt.

Patch work quilts are one of the most beautiful and traditional quilts to use to keep you snug at night. They are also one of the cheapest ways of making a quilt, but they are not the easiest of quilts to start with. Matching all the squares in a patch work quilt is not quite as easy as it seems. The easiest way to begin is to purchase two big squares of fabric that you like.

However, there is a great tradition in Europe and America of sewing patch work quilts. The craft of doing this has even become a social gathering in the United States. If you would like to get started sewing patch work quilts, you could join a group if you live in America or you could join an Internet group that specializes in making quilts. Do a search on line and you will find what you are searching for.

There is such a lot of choice if you want to create a quilt. For example, you could make the top of the quilt either totally smooth or completely fluffy or completely smooth or a mixture of all or some of them. Then you can have the underside as a extraordinary cloth as well or you could simply use a sheet or preferably something a bit more robust.

If you are thoroughly intimidated by the idea of sewing a full-size quilt, you could try constructing a quilt for a baby. Okay, you might not have a baby and you might definitely not be planning having one, but you could create one for the practice and keep it to give to a special person in your life who is having a baby or only sell it through a local shop or even eBay.

Once you are self-confident about constructing and selling quilts for babies' cots or toddlers' beds, you could upgrade them a bit and offer to embroider your name and the baby's name on the quilt. Later still, you could accept orders for custom quilts, manufactured to the requirements of the orderer.

Constructing quilts, especially babies' quilts is a decent way of making money from home for people who cannot leave home a great deal. Those people such as work at home mothers and fathers, the elderly and the unwell.
