Patchwork Quilting – A Mini Series

I’m getting a little addicted to video tutorials!

I just find videos so helpful when learning a new craft or skill. Here is a snap shot of some of the things I have YouTube’d over the years :
– How to change a washing machine seal
– How to break into your own car (believe it or not these videos exist and nb. It didn’t work-had to call out rescue people)
– How to drill into tiles
– How to increase a knitting stitch
And then the usual:
– A good old Jessica Simpson song (I know!)

So as a way of giving back to the community and to log my own learning I’ve made a couple of beginners’ guides here and here.

As some of you know I’m exploring the amazing world of quilting. If patchwork has been singing your name or you’ve always fancied recreating your nanna’s blanket I’m going to be doing a small series on making a sweet yet straightforward patchwork quilt.

I’ve had a request to cover piping which I will do I once I’ve completed the quilt. If there is anything you want explained in more detail or another topic just let me know.

Use the Easter holiday weekend to dust off your sewing machine and make a quilt of your own.

P.s Thank you for voting on the patchwork design. Structured was in the lead at 65% and the controlling perfectionist in me liked the order so I mapped out a coordinated design.Patchwork Quilt Design I have looked at the results again more recently and the voting how now swayed to ‘haphazard’! So those of you who liked that one – a perfect excuse to make your own x

    Exciting! I look forward to seeing the result. I did vote for haphazard but seeing as I still haven’t finished knitting the dress I started for my little girl when I was pregnant I may have to do that first…
