Quiltcast #8


Posted on October 16th, by Amy in podcast, Quiltcast. 1 Comment

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!

Tutorials by Amy and April.

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 18″ x 24″ Self-Healing Rotary Mat

Omnigrip 6″ x 24″ Non-Slip Quilter’s Ruler

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!

Clover Quilting Pins or Little House pins

 

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.

    Hi there ,
    I don’t know if anyone has told you but I find the volume of the podcast very low and hard to listen. Not sure if it’s because the microphone is not close enough to capture the conversation clear enough.
    cheers
