Quilting is the creative art of turning fabric scraps into useful beautiful objects such as blankets, bags, coasters, coats, and anything else you can imagine. Quilting is relaxing, gives a sense of accomplishment, and is a way to extend the life-time of textiles.  It't a way to have time for yourself, while contributing to a sustainable world!

This e-book will show you which tools and fabrics you really need to start your first quilt.  It is a gift from me to you for subscribing to my newsletter. You’ll find out you don't need to buy anything to quilt. In April, I am hosting a Quilt-A-Long on social media where I take you through all the steps of quilting. The end result is a mini-memory quilt. Keep an eye on my emails to get all the information.

I just read her e-book, quilting out of your home, and learned a lot about quilting. It was particularly interesting to see how such a fascinating art has simple foundations and everyday accessible tools. Also liked the design of the e-book: colourful, cheering, and sincere.

Today I read the free e-book of kick ass quilting. It tells you how you can quilt with thing and materials everybody has in their own homes

The book has beautiful  pictures and a very clear explanation.  I like the way it was presented and the explanation on why quilting can be a way to deal with stress.

Quilting is a way to prevent usable fabrics from going to landfills. The fabric industry has a HUGE negative effect on the environment and the quality of life of many people. Partly this is through the pollution caused by manufacturing fabrics. Partly this is through the huge amount of waste the fabric industry produces on both an industry and consumer level.

Quilting is also a way to slow down and have some time for yourself. With the quilt you make, you tell the story of your life, and it's a way to process emotions and thoughts. This is aided with using fabrics that have meaning to you. Quilting is a tool to process grief, de-stress, grow confidence, and find inner peace, with as end result a beautiful useful object you can use throughout your days.
