Quilting can be fun with the right tools. To start you need some rulers, markers, fabric, thread and an iron. Most of quilting is sewing strait lines but some of the quilts involve curves, applique technique, using piecing and hand sewing techniques.  Some quilts are even more complicated and involve cutting fabric very accurately to get thebest results.  Accuquilt has the tool to make cutting fabric easy and quick.  Check out the sales they are having or give as a gift.

Here is a great jelly roll quilting video!

As promised pictures of my first quilting attempt. This is a lap quilt made from one jelly roll, backing fabric, quilt backing, and sash material  in the same fabric line Kaffe Fasset.  Thanks to my local Quilting Store they had a like fabric and I had bought the backing fabric for another project but it was too thick in hand, so since it had a nice contrast I used it as the backing fabric.  I used a solid grey quilting thread in the bobbin and a variegated green in the top.  Hopefully not to bad for a first attempt!

Eleanor Burns and Nancy Ziemen are the dynamic duo of quilting!  They both inspired me to design and make this reversible dog coat.  I used Hearts and Gizzards because she likes to eat Hearts and Gizzards.  I also appliqued a bone and the silhouette of a Kerry Blue Terrier.  Since I love watching Downton Abby I chose to use their fabric line for this Downton Abby Coat.
