Creating Unique Quilts

Every quilter has her own style of creating unique quilts. You can begin with simply making blocks or units and putting them together. After all the blocks are put together, then choose a border. Or quilts can be planned from the beginning very carefully on graph paper with every block design and color choice decided upon before beginning cutting fabric. Many quilters use both methods and some quilters will only work with one method or the other.

If you are making a quilt from a pattern or a book many of the creative decisions are already made for you and all you need to do is to "plug in" your fabric and color choices to the formula of blocks and borders already planned. There is nothing wrong with this method of making quilts....
