Great Ideas Any Quilter Can Use!

As with many things that people are passionate about, quilting can be an expensive endeavor. While the creativity and enjoyment, not to mentioned the finished quilts, are worth it, there are many ways to reduce expenses.

We’ve found some excellent articles with many good ideas to share with you. One point we’d like to emphasize is that’s it’s important NOT to scrimp on fabric and thread. Be sure to choose the highest quality you can afford so that the quilts you produce are long lived.

While pre-cuts can be big timesavers, and it’s fun to get a piece of every fabric in a pretty fabric line, they’re more expansive than yardage (see cost comparisons here). It pays to make your own (learn how here).

Another important tip is to take classes. Rather than waste time, effort and materials on trial and error while learning something new, it’s worth it to master a technique with as little cost as possible.

Or, sign up for Craftsy Unlimited to have access to all the classes anytime you want (quilting plus 15 other topics, like baking, knitting, crochet and more).
