A few weeks ago I published part 1 of a tutorial on how to make your own awesome patchwork star. Well, here is part 2! This tutorial will teach you how to turn the patchwork quilt block into a potholder. Potholders are ideal as a present: Everyone uses them and they are small so don’t take too much time and materials to make.
The word quilt or quilting is confusing because of all the different meanings the word has. To explain to you how tricky quilting terminology is I present to you this perfectly accurate description of a quilter:
Quilter: One who quilts and spend many hours quilting. Some people only make quilt tops and engage a quilter to do the quilting. Other quilters do their own quilting.
There are many alternative ways to get supplies for quilting or embroidery. In this articleI will tell you about four of them: 1. Befriend a tailor or dressmaker. 2. Second-hand stores. 3. Give away groups. 4. Old clothes and other leftover materials.
I have the solid conviction that the world would be a better place if more people picked up needle and thread to make a quilt.
