Quilter's Tips

image88

Start with binding

Consider making your binding before you start on the quilt.  Roll on a piece of pool noodle or cardboard toilet roll.  When the quilt is ready, so are you!


Follow our Facebook page for Tips and Information - The Country Quilt Shop/Facebook.

Try this!

Cut the larger pieces first then cut the smaller ones from your fabric.  It's logical, but doesn't always happen!

Get excited with us!
