Quilt beginnings

I've been wanting to make a quilt for our bed for ages and have finally decided to go ahead. After much deliberation I settled on a taupe / grey, brown, white, red and yellow colour scheme and rounded up some fabrics from Patchwork Passion (in Onehunga) and The Old Sew and Sew (here in Pukekohe). I am so in love with them!

All washed and hanging out to dry.

I don't expect to whizz through this quilt, but the joy of the process is what it's about and it will get finished eventually. Right now I'm waiting for my rotary cutter to arrive and then I'll start cutting out 8 inch squares.

  3. Watch out; quilting is very habit-forming, especially with your sense of style and colour! Enjoy the process.

    1. I know what you mean - I've already started cutting blocks for a different quilt and planning two more in my head!

  5. Hi, I'm planning to do a rag quilt myself. But I'm a little stuck on how to cut the squares. I bought a rotary cutter and a mat, but I'm scared to start. Any tips?
    Thank you

    1. Don't be scared! If you do a Google search there are so many helpful posts by more accomplished bloggers than I, or search on YouTube for videos taking you through the process. I especially like the Missouri Star Quilt Company videos (YouTube channel name is MissouriQuiltCo). Good luck!
