Few things are more rewarding than creating something useful and lovely by hand! Picking up a new craft is a fun way to get your creative juices flowing and fill your time with a productive yet calming activity. During covid, we're all searching for new outlets and hobbies, and what could be better than a quilt kit for beginners to let your artsy side out?
DIY Patchwork Quilt Making
A DIY quilting project can be a huge undertaking, especially if you're a beginning quilter. To start off, you need to collect enough fabric patches to cover an entire quilt, choose a pattern, and get all of the necessary equipment. Some popular patterns are jelly roll and layer cake, but you can't go wrong with a pre-designed pattern like this one. Because of the many elements of quilting, choosing a beginner quilt kit is a great way to start out if you've never quilted before. The best option is a pre-cut quilt kit, so that you don't need to worry about cutting your quilt blocks.
If you like to crochet or knit, quilting should come easily to you. Most people choose to use a sewing machine, which makes the process much quicker and easier. If you're intimidated by the size of a quilt, you can always start with a baby quilt kit to make a smaller version first! For inspiration, check out the many homemade quilts on Etsy, or follow a simple video tutorial like this one:
