With Season 11 of Project QUILTING approaching quilting – the first challenge is posted in two weeks – it’s time to start preparing yourself, your space, and your supplies for the challenge.
In all reality, all you really need is the basics – needle, thread, fabric. What I’m going to share with you are “things” that could help bring your challenge to the next level but are completely
“What are your “go-to” tools and notions for Project QUILTING Challenges?”
The other day I asked the question “What are your “go-to” tools and notions for Project QUILTING Challenges?” in the Project QUILTING facebook page. These answers are from Project QUILTING veterans so these are some folks who know what they’re doing.
Katie Bishop said – Engineering paper and a clean work space 😁 Which is really only a notion in my head…
A glass of wine was Jan Koehn’s advice! I’d cheers to that! And the Fat Quarter Shop has a really cute collection of fun quilty wine glasses!
Carolyn Daniela wrote “Love my precut stash and my brother machine or my feather weight.”
and Joy Lamphere uses “EQ8, fusible web, a good size stash and my Bernina 770.”
I think all of these supplies and tips are perfect for preparing for the 11th season of Project QUILTING. If you have any great tips or tricks for upping your game during Project QUILTING challenges please feel free to leave a comment!
Pre-cute are helpful! I try to keep some of my scraps in check by trimming them to squares (5, 2.5, 2 and 1.5 inches), and they really come in handy for quick projects! I need to check my thread levels before the season starts too – I use lots of white, but grey is a great neutral so I don’t have to switch to match colours so often.
