Getting Ready

Introduction

My name is Rashida and you may click here to know more about me.

I am by no means a complete expert on the art of quilting, however my love for fabric and colour has brought me here on my journey to quilting.  I love to inspire anyone who has the love for creativity.  I am pleased that you have decided to join me in this journey.

Delivery of course

If you wish to join in this course please be sure to follow the steps below:

  1. Get your tools ready:  Tools needed (click on the link to see my earlier posting on “Basic patchwork and quilting tools”)
  2. Get your fabrics ready:
    • Type of fabric needed:  Generally 100% cotton is preferable.
    • Fabric colour and print choice:  I have provided a colour theory link for your information.  A quilt should be visually appealing therefore learning about complementary and contrasting colours will help you in making colour choices for your quilts.
My fabric selection
    • Fabric preparations:  It is always good to pre-wash the fabrics you use to make your quilts.  This will prevent shrinkage and running of colour.  After washing please iron your fabric to flatten them so it is easy to cut  your templates.

Choosing your quilt layout

Its always good to know what you want your end product to look like.  To help you I have designed some quilt layouts which you could choose from, so eventually after we finish making all  the blocks you can convert that into a a quilt.  Although for the purpose of this course we will be making the Amethyst Quilt.  Below are other ways to combine the blocks you make during your course:

Are we ready to have fun?
