I have a friend who wants to try making a quilt with her daughter. They haven't done anything like this before and I was asked for some advice. It is a little tricky to give all the information about everything, even where to buy fabric and what to look for when they haven't done anything like this before. Then I had a bit of a brainwave and suggested that she make her first quilt with some vintage sheets. It is a win win all around. Firstly, I can share which means no cost. Secondly, no pressure, because the vintage sheets are cheap and in this case free! They can figure out if this is something they like to do and then spend the money on quilting cotton for the next try.
I put together a stack of vintage sheets chunks last evening. I say chunks because they are not fat quarters, more like half yards. I found a quilting book that I got at the estate sale last fall, with a good basic instruction section too and added that to the pile. I think they will have some fun! They are going to make the top and then ask for the next step. I so hope they have fun!
Have a super rest of your day!
