You’ve seen them everywhere – patchwork, t-shirt, baby clothes, you name it – there’s a type of quilt available for purchase or patterns to make your own. From simple to extravagant and everything in between, quilting is an art perfected by the meticulous among us or so you may think. Not so, says Leslie, of The Seasoned Homemaker quilting is a craft many can aspire to, it is all about how to get started and the right tools, many of which you may already own. If you’re just getting your feet wet in the quilting world, think about a budget before investing in professional tools with the excitement of starting a new craft. Leslie suggests a trip to a thrift store. This inexpensive shopping trip may land you quality fabric in the shape of oversized clothing that can be cut down to suit your need. Likewise, a thrift store may offer a few of the tools you may need at a fraction of the cost – sewing machine, rulers, scissors, and the like.
