Does anyone fancy joining me in a quilt-a-long? Just for fun.

Excellent instructions from this lady on youtube,

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLABBAA89EA1D18609

I'm going to choose and cut out my pieces for the 1st block. I'm going for blues, reds, greens and pinks I think.

Anyone up for it, no time limits/pressure, we can show our progress on here as we go along (she says optimistically )

Lovely idea, I have a pile of quilting fabric that periodically looks at me reproachfully, would be good to start using it

My eldest daughter is part way through her quilt, we ordered the batting yesterday and one final colour of fabric for a border round one section.

Will post a photo perhaps.

Off now to watch the video.

PS Where do you all find is the best place to buy quilting fabrics?

I love it, find it very therapeutic and relaxing in a non-electric way

If you start by watching the video on block 1 (a few times through in my case) she does explain each step really well for beginners.

I'm getting quite excited about seeing all the different fabrics everyone chooses now

I've watchedthe first video and it really is quite good for beginners I think, very clear and unfussy. Off to the stash...............
