Open Line Friday–Advice to “Newbie” Quilters

Embroidered House Quilt

The CRAZY KENNEDY Quilt OR… The KENNEDY CRAZY Quilt?

In keeping with our conversation regarding abbreviations  (Read more HERE)—– TGIF!  (Thank Goodness It’s Friday!)    It’s been a wild week AND MONTH here at the Kennedy Household-and it’s about to get even crazier–We have  25 baseball games, one confirmation,  two college graduations, three showers and a wedding– all in the next six weeks.  That’s a lot of costume changes! (Any bets on whether we’ll get the wedding quilt done in time???)

So if I’m a little inattentive to blogging, please be patient…

OPEN LINE FRIDAY–ADVICE TO NEWBIES

Today on Open Line Friday, I’d like to hear what advice YOU would give a “Newbie” quilter.  If YOU ARE a Newbie Quilter, what have you already learned or what advice are you looking for???

I’ll start the ball rolling…

I  (should tell myself)  would tell every Newbie out there—

LESS IS MORE–in other words, go slowly and enjoy the process.  Resist the temptation to buy every new gadget,  pattern, ruler and piece of fabric …there’s plenty of time to collect all that stuff –IF you even need it!   And the corollary to that is:

MAKE IT WORKPut your creativity to work by using what you have...(Sounds like a challenge we could try as a group???—after the wedding….)
