April and I talk about where to begin when learning to quilt, or teaching a friend to quilt! Lots of helpful tips and information for the beginner, or beginning to teach, and some of our personal strategies for success! Success is a new quilting addict – of course!
1, 2, 3 Quilt by Ellen Luckett Baker is a great book for beginner, or any quilter looking for fun projects! Organized by shape, with a variety of projects for each shape, there’s a number of fun projects to inspire even the novice. I especially like her Lopsided Squares Quilt, Stacked Table Runner, and Hexie the Turtle – the Clamshell Pillow Sham looks like a fun challenge too!
OLFA 45mm Ergonomic Rotary Cutter - I use this one – it’s comfy!
OLFA 5″ Precision Scissors - this is a great all around scissor that is really sharp!
The Gypsy Gripper was also mentioned for a helpful tool when cutting, be sure to take note of the size, it will only fit on your largest rulers, but they do have other sizes available.
