So, a while ago I decided I wanted to quilt. I originally drew up a pattern for a quilt that was going to be huge (I wanted it to touch the floor on all 4 sides of a big double bed... it would be 4 meters or something) but I decided that might be just a little bit too big for a first time.
So, instead, I opted for a readymade pattern and ordered a pattern & fabric from Red Rooster Fabrics, I haven't received it yet. The pattern is called In Full Bloom. I think it's going going to be about 1m x 1m, so that's a lot better than my original plan.... here's the link to the pattern: http://www.redroosterfabrics.com/content7369.html
I have no idea though, if this is difficult to make or not. I've looked through the pattern (it's available for free on the website) and it doesn't seem very difficult, and I am experienced in sewing, but I'm just a bit insecure because this is going to be my first project.
Also, I have no idea what to do for the actual quilting? I am going to do it by hand - I sew but I'm not fond of sewing machines - but I have no idea what kind of 'design' I should use. I've never seen any quilts in real life, except for some log cabin cushion covers, quilting is very unknown where I live. I really don't know what kind of thread and needle I should use for the quilting.
Thanks in advance!!
