I had a plan to make a huge quilt pillow for my dog out of old blue jeans. The jeans are still in the bag beside my sewing machine and that's been about 3 months now.
I still think I need to do it first as it will be good experience for me but since I haven't felt well for months, I didn't want to start it.
I slowly searching for the right material to make a a twin bed size wall hanging. It's a young girl looking out a window at trees and birds and has a blue sky and window frames. It's so pretty and I have a wall in my bedroom I would like to hang it. I don't really understand all the instructions so when I do start, I would appreciate help. It's from an old Quilting Mag. from the 70's.
Dolphin, first a wee tip from someone who has been quilting for years. Don't start on something that is hard, especially applique. Work on something a bit easier first, get the feel of quilting, doing your 1/4 inch seam allowance, cutting, pressing and sewing. Then gradually work towards applique.
I also have a number of tutorials done which you can check out.
When your ready though, no matter what pattern you do, I'll help you anyway I can.
