|In the midst of quilting|
"interesting to see that you quilt from one edge to the other and not from the centre out"
The reason it intrigued me ... was that it had never occurred to me to quilt from the center out ...
I typically quilt down the length of the quilt in middle ... but from one end to the other. As I paused to consider why I do it that way I don't have an answer.
As much as I LOVE the fact that in just two short years I have taught myself how to quilt ... and that I've made a few that I'm actually quite proud of ... I also realize sometimes that self-taught can have some limitations.
A couple of weeks ago Amy at Diary of a Quilter had a great post on the use of a 'scant 1/4 inch' that I tried on the Scattered Blocks quilt and it definitely made it SO much easier. Turns out Amy had taken a class ... yup ... Amy the amazing quilter had taken a class ... where she learned this trick.
So now I wonder what else I might have missed in the this self-taught journey. Does anyone have any thoughts on what types of classes might be beneficial at this stage? What has been your best learning experience as a quilter ... self taught or in a class?
Hope you're having a great weekend.
All the best
