Quilting is a fun and practical way to pass the time. You use your creativity to create beautiful blankets, cushions and home decorations that will be passed on to your children and grandchildren.
In a few steps you will learn how to make a basic quilt to display your new skill to friends and family.
Choose your cutting tools. To make a symmetrical and aligned quilt, it is very important to have the same sized pieces nicely cut equally.
Not only does this give a professional look to the job, but it speeds up the quilt process and makes it easier for beginners.
Normal fabric shears serve, but rotary cutters are usually considered better fabric cutters.Rotary cutters come in a variety of sizes, but the middle ones are great to start with.
If you use standard scissors, make sure it is well scoured so as not to damage the fabric.
Cutting base. The base for cutting comes with very useful markings of the molds often used in quilts and patchworks. It is essential for the operation of the blade if you use the rotary cutter, but even with the scissors it is very useful to avoid scratches on the table and to align and cut the fabric.
Use a ruler. Not any ruler, but one specific for patchwork, wide, long and transparent, with markings of angles and centimeters. With this ruler, it is easy to cut several layers of fabric and make the same markings on all of them.
Gather basic sewing tools. They are the basic tools of all sewing, like pins (many pins!), Seam remover, needle and thread. If you do not have these items, buy them in a cabinet that is more convenient for you.
