Yesterday as I was cutting out a new quilt and thinking about what I can make for Chad’s friend, I started thinking about how others go through the process. We all end up with the same end result . . a finished quilt. Well, some of us end up with bags and boxes of pieces but every now and then I end up with a finished quilt.
I’m going to ask you some questions. This is a test! Not really. Don’t answer any more than I ask, ok? There will be a series of questions in different blog posts. Maybe I’ll compile all the answers into a . . I don’t know . . a blog post or a .pdf file . . something easier to access than a bunch of blog comments.
Since I’m pretty much self taught as far as quilting, I almost always learn something from asking questions or watching others quilt. Hopefully we’ll all learn something through this little series.
What comes first . . the chicken or the egg? Definitely not the chicken coop, right? No . . that’s not really the first question.
The first question is . . what usually comes first . . the pattern or the fabric? Do you find a fabric that you love and let it speak to you about how to make it or do you come up with a pattern (purchased, self designed, modified purchased, whatever) and then choose the fabrics?
Don’t answer any more than what’s asked . . or you may not have an answer for the next question! 🙂
