Come share in My Adventures in Quilting a Lot With a Little! A little talent, a little space, and what began as a little hobby! This book is part quilt instruction, part road map to creativity, and part personal journey. You'll want to read it if you are keen to learn more about quilting, you need a little encouragement, you have an unquenchable appetite for quilting and crafting, or you just really wish you could hang out and talk shop with someone who gets it! Quilt Life: Ever wondered how someone can end up with fabric stacked up to the ceiling, dozens of unfinished projects and a life’s work that revolves around second-hand fabric finds? Well, this book explains it all. While it begins with the siren call of creativity...it hooks you with the lure of potential in every scrap of fabric... You gain solid footing growing skills in design, piecing, borders and blocks... You hit your stride as fluency in various machines, shop hops and half square triangles become your language. Your path is set when you measure time by the quilts you have completed. You know you are really lost when some normal unsuspecting person walks into your living room (partially covered in quilting excess of every kind) and looks confused, struggling to understand what they are seeing and says “Is this some kind of business?” If you are reading the synopsis of this book, you may have already tumbled down this rabbit hole. If not, consider yourself warned! Quilting A Lot With A LIttle is my attempt at full transparency on the Quilt Life.
