I thought today I would walk you through how I make a quilt start to finish. Below is a picture of the quilt I will be making. As you can see its called Peppermint Swirl by Fig Tree Quilts. Let me step aside and say normally I would not work on a Christmas Quilt in November or December as I would never have it done for the holiday. Just being honest here. I tend to get sidetracked.
I digress. This quilt began with a color scheme and then I found the pattern. Once I had the pattern I was able to then pull fabrics from my stash or purchase the fabric I needed. Each of my projects go into a tub such as the one below. This is my way of knowing that the fabric for this project can't be used for another project. I am also able to keep all the pieces as I sew them in a safe place and handy. My quilts tend to have a lot of pieces and as you can see in the picture I have stacks of triangles cut and ready to sew together. There are over 500 triangles in case you were wondering.
