Quilting and Crochet

This is a someday project for me as I don't know how to crochet.

2. That is very beautiful

Go get yourself some yarn and a crochet hook and learn the stitches needed to make that ASAP. Not someday, today.

8. Crocheting is easier than knitting

In fact, crocheting is a gateway drug to knitting

9. Yes, with crochet you only have one live stitch at a time to worry about. There's a lot less

stress over a dropped stitch.

3. Buy a little pamplet called 'Teach Yourself to Crochet' or

find an online course. I taught myself to crochet using the little book when I was 12.

5. I tried crocheting before taking up knitting. I think in general I like knitted items more than

crocheted items but I am in love with this quilt - so someday.

Video in combination with a book and hands on in a knitting group definitely helped.

12. Love to Knit, but Crochet is not for me

Way back in 70's I tried crochet, did three projects. a rug, a throw and a vest. Was easy to learn, went fairly fast, but I guess I just liked knitting better.

Didn't start quilting until about 5 year ago, I am really enjoying making quilts. Just finished my blue willow plate quilt top, waiting for backing fabric, then off to the quilt shop for quilting. Now collecting purple fabric, not sure of a pattern. I enjoy making my own designs. I work out the design and measurements and draw my patterns on 1"-1/4"grid paper. Always make a few sample blocks to be sure they look like my plan. Sometimes they don't and I go back to planning.

Half the fun (to me) is making my own designs and picking out the colors and prints. Quilting has taught me a lot about color and how to use it for best visual impact.
