|This page is a work in progress. Pat is accumulating hints as she learns how to quilt and creates (first) a quilt made of sampler blocks. Stay tuned, more will show up.
- Learn about the history of quilting, and its importance in the social life of women everywhere.
- Go to school from various experts who have painstakingsly written down the lessons they have learned.
- To get started, either take a class or find an experienced quilter to give you some beginning coaching to get started.
- Work at color. It's almost everything, though texture and pattern follow close behind.
- Visit quilting shows
- Be adventurous. Consider working on your own design.
- Put off learning how to quilt if it's something that appeals to you.
- Be afraid to try. Once you get the hang of it, it really isn't that hard.
- Avoid hand piecing and quilting. It's meditative, enormously satisfying, and can be done on the fly whenever you have a few spare minutes.
