One person said, “I’ve never understood what a fat quarter is.”
Another ventured, “Can I ask a stupid question? When you quilt in the ditch does that mean actually stitching on the seam line between each block? Or does it mean either side of the seam line? I’ve never known!”
I’m realizing that sometimes we throw quilting jargon around as if everyone should know exactly what we mean. And that while many of us do know, there are always newbies who do not. We want to be mindful of them.
So let’s say it straight out for the record: No matter what it is you don’t know, it’s totally okay! No matter what your question may be, there are other people with the same one!
Let Quilty Pleasures be your safe place to ask any quilt-related question without fear. Because my goodness, we’ve all been beginners at some point. And no matter how much we come to know, the quilt world is deep and wide, and there are bound to be some things we do not know! So we’re all in the same boat, in a way.
Let’s start today. In the comments, ask a quilting-related question, any question at all. We’ll pick a few and answer them in a future post. And if we get lots of great questions, this might become a regular event. So please, ask away!
