Happy New Year! Hope you all had a lovely New Year’s Eve and that you have a fantastic 2014! (I can now say I’m getting married THIS YEAR – agh!)
So did you get any craft-related presents for Christmas? I did and I’m a bit scared…
My grandparents bought me a dinky little sewing machine, and I’ve got to say, I’m pretty nervous about using it.
I’ve always wanted to make a beautiful quilt but I have no idea where to start. I don’t even know if I will be able to make one with the sewing machine I have been bought – that’s how clueless I am! Any help in this area will be very much appreciated please!
Here are a couple pics of my new piece of kit:
I think once I’ve got a few bits of wedding DIY done I’m going to try and make a simple quilt. Got to walk before I can run, right? If you have any suggestions of something I could try I would really appreciate it. I do like the look of this tutorial, though. Looks like a good place to start: http://thecuriousquilter.wordpress.com/tutorials/classic-squares-tutorial-part-1-topper/
