If you could come up with a list of skills every quilter should have, what would they be?
Perfect 1/4 inch seam, 1/2 square triangles, flying geese, quilting feathers, stitch in the ditch
These are some on my list. I'm trying to come up with 12 things every quilter should be able to do and then I'm going to put those on my list for next year's resolutions. Every month, I'm going to choose one of those things and have that be my goal for the month. By the end of the year, my quilting skills will have improved a lot. And, if the goal is only for the month, I don't think I will be so scared to try 1/2 square triangles like I was this year. I even bought a special ruler for cutting the triangles and still couldn't bring myself to trying them!
So, help me out here. What do you suggest I add to my list. I'm off to search the internet to see if someone has already done the hard part for me and to procrastinate from grading papers.
