SO WHAT IS A QUILT?
Understanding the rules that define the craft of quilting
Quilting is the act of stitching several layers of fabric and batting together. A quilt can therefore be easily defined as any project that has two layers of fabric sandwiched by a layer of batting that is all held together by quilting stitches.
This is how a quilt is defined by any quilt show, and by most quilters.
Also many art quilters use many more than three layers in their work. Just because a quilt is defined as three layers doesn't mean that's all it has to be. It just goes to show that any definition deserves to be bent occasionally.
Other aspects of quilting are not bent so easily. Our 1/4" seam allowance for instance.
Many quilts have pieced tops, meaning that fabric pieces were sewn together in blocks, and then the blocks were sewn together to create a quilt. All of these seams use a very exact 1/4" seam allowance.
When you deviate from this seam allowance, even 1/16" per block, this small amount will magnify itself across the surface of your quilt. This is why it's so very important to stitch accurately and carefully when piecing any patchwork quilt.
And not all quilts are pieced! Keep this in mind too. Whole cloth quilts are quilts created with extremely wide fabric that is marked and then quilted. No piecing is necessary because the design will be entirely created by the quilting stitches.
With so many rules, many people might feel limited by quilting. After all, when you enter a painting into an art show, you're not being judged by the tightness of your canvas or the exact precision of your brush strokes. But this is why so many women quilt - it's a challenge!
Quilting is an amazingly versatile and extremely fun hobby. Give two quilters the exact same fabric and they will come up with two totally different, but equally amazing quilts.

I bought a quilt from Wendy as a gift for a friend. I was thrilled with the quality and creativity she obviously poured into this quilt. My friend was equally as impressed. Dyannoel Quilts will be my go-to shop!

About

I am a quiltaholic.

When I came to the United States in 1965 I saw my husbands Grandmother quilting on a very large frame. I was so intrigued that I knew I wanted to quilt one day. It was many years before that happened but after I retired from full time work my thoughts became reality. Now I am a QUILTAHOLIC and spend many hours every day in my sewing room.

Initially I made quilts for family and friends, but I didn't stop there. I was always, and still am, making quilts of all sizes to the point where I was taking over our home. I didn't want to quit sewing but knew I would have to do something before my quilts moved us out of our home!

A friend sent me a clipping advertising Etsy which set my mind to thinking how wonderful it would be to have a shop and sell my quilts. I thought maybe I could re-coup some of the money I've spent buying machines and other equipment, not to mention all the fabric purchases.

So this is my story of how I became an Etsy shop owner.
