No Skill Required19 June 2013
A friend of mine – a knitter – told me that at a recent dinner she’d attended, one of the women informed her that quilting was very different from knitting because of the skill that quilting requires, whereas once you’ve learnt to knit you can knit anything.
I think I must be a bit slow on the uptake because I’ve been knitting for over 50 years and every month I learn something new, very often from one of you or from the internet in general. My mother who was a very accomplished knitter, was learning new techniques from me well into her 80s.
And there was me thinking that quilting was just about cutting up perfectly good fabric and then sewing it together again.
