Make Your Quilting Dreams Come True

Jan 1, 2022 9:00:00 AM / by Cayden Crowise

The new year is here and we’re ready. It’s time to implement your new year's resolutions and make positive changes in your life. Manifest your quilting dreams today!

 

Improving Your Quilting

Becoming a quilter isn’t a destination. It’s a process. We’re always learning and growing. This time of year provides us the opportunity to reflect on our skills, see where we can improve, and how we can share our passion with others.

Refresh an Old Quilt Pattern

Have you ever looked back at your first quilt pattern and admired just how far your skills have come since its completion? Why not take some time to refresh that pattern and give it a new look? Not only will you breathe new life into your pattern, but you’ll be able to see just how much you’ve learned over time!

Of course, it doesn’t have to be your first pattern. Maybe you have a favorite pattern that you haven’t made in years, and you’d like to make a new one with fabric you just got over the holidays.

Let’s pull out those patterns and give them a fresh new look for the new year. You deserve it!

 

Be sure to use our FREE web-based quilt customizer, GO! Quilt, to see how your AccuQuilt pattern will look using a new color way and/or fabric.

Try a New Quilting Technique

The new year is a great time to set a goal for learning something new – like a new quilting technique. Maybe you’d like to learn how to do English Paper Piecing or how to sew curves. Maybe you want to tackle embroidery or become a master of y-seams!

Set your intentions, get your supplies together, and begin your journey to accomplish those goals. AccuQuilt has 600+ embroidery designs and hundreds of patterns to choose from for your next project. Here are a few tutorials to get you started on your learning journey.

Teach Someone How to Quilt

Who inspired you to quilt or to be creative? Imagine just how rewarding it would be to teach someone you care about how to sew or make their first quilt. Instead of learning yourself, set some time aside to teach someone your craft.

If someone you know wants to get into quilting but doesn't know where to start, then the Ready. Set. GO! starter set is the best place to begin.
