So many quilt projects to try
Just take a look at some of the diverse projects that you can find on the Ludlow Quilt and Sew website:
A few years ago I wanted to make a really special gift for a ‘significant birthday’ of my brother. I decided to make a quilt and made one that I thought was stunning (luckily, he thought so too!). I now realise that I made it very badly, but I became totally hooked on quilting and learning how to make patchwork quilts. I’ve heard it described as a healthy obsession and I’m happy to be obsessed. There are so many glorious fabrics waiting to be quilted and so many different kinds of quilts to make that the possibilities are truly endless.
I read every how to quilt blook and magazine that I could find, enrolled on as many courses and workshops for making patchwork quilts as I could find. Then a friend mentioned that she would also love to learn how to make patchwork quilts but thought that it would be too difficult for her. She was amazed when I showed her that by breaking down the quilting project into small steps it was possible for anyone to learn and produce beautiful patchwork quilts for all types of uses.
How Ludlow Quilt and Sew can help you
That was the light bulb moment when I realised that if I could show my friend how to do quilting, then I could help other people learn how to quilt and sew from my patterns and simple tutorials. So I decided to write them down and turn them into the free beginner quilt and sew guide that can now help you on the road to an incredibly rewarding hobby, even business.
