The Quilting Process: Before you start

How¬†has your week been so far? I am looking forward to the weekend already ūüôā I had a very productive weekend last week and I’ve been meaning to share but promise to tell you all¬†about it later!.

Today, I¬†continue with the Quilting Process series and I think it’s appropriate to start with¬†the things you should¬†know before you start quilting. While I was OK jumping right in and figuring out my way as I go, I definitely wish I knew most of these things then but¬†I wouldn’t take anything away from my learning journey so far though ūüėČ

As you must know by now, I am fairly new¬†to Quilting myself but I’ve picked up a few things along the line. There are important information you need to be armed with as you begin your quilting journey and I could try to write all about them here. However, I think it’s best to direct you to sites where you will not only find this information but also¬†learn loads of other lessons¬†as you go along.

Like I said in the previous¬†post, this series will be about my Quilting perspective with reference to others who I am equally learning from…So here we go:
