Kick ass quilts is born out of my love for quilting.
During my journey to become a quilter, I noticed a lack of resources for people who have a limited budget. I started quilting as a student, so you can imagine how much I had to spend. Still, I found ways to make wonderful quilts for me, my friends and my family. So from the start I realized that all the expensive materials were not necessary.
The quilt you see below is the first quilt I made. It's made from all kinds of different scraps of fabric.
During my studies, I also got in touch with sustainability and the impact of the fabric industry on the environment. Did you know that the fabric industry is one of the most polluting industries!? And this includes quilting, where buying fabric is often more popular than making stuff from the materials we already own.
This knowledge solidified my belief that quilting has to become more sustainable.
So born out of thrifty necessity, which grew into a solid conviction to do what's best for the environment, I created my own style of quilting:
To combine the fun of working with colourful fabrics with a thrifty mindset of make-do to create unique masterpieces.
The first lesson on offer is to learn how to make a quilt from A-Z. This is with the help of a small project you can finish within 2 weeks. The project is a mini quilt coaster.
Once you have learned the basic quilting techniques, you transition to the lessons for intermediate, and later, expert quilters. Because the quilt college is growing every day, we will grow together on this journey towards creativity and sustainability.
The subscription gives you access to all current and future lessons in the community. You can decide when and what you want to learn, and which road to take to become a kick ass quilter.
In the quilt college, you can also meet and interact with like-minded people. Share your quilts, ask questions and find inspiration within our global community.
Join me today on this journey to become a kick ass quilter.
