Fabrics are available in all different prints and colors, let's find out a bit more on how to use them and how collections are designed.
You wish to start a quilt project, you have two choices: either take a pattern from a magazine, a book or a website that was made by a designer or imagine it yourself. You might believe that there is no way for you to be able to do such a thing.
Well there is a way.
You need to learn the steps of the shapes, colors and distribution. In traditional patchwork, blocks are made of basic shapes such as squares, triangles and rectangles. Once you have established which ones you will be using, you decide on your color palette from the color wheel or why not just from your environment and nature.
You can find all that information on blogs, websites or books, but they will only give you small parts of the whole picture, haven't you noticed that magazines will give you the quilt pattern but usually don't inform you on how to quilt it. Websites will also give instructions on how to make a project with a certain fabric collection but what happens when that collection isn't available anymore?
You need help choosing your color range? You need someone to show you how to quilt and bind your project?
