Making Quilting a Priority: Try These Tips


Quilting is one of the most rewarding ways of expressing creativity and producing something beautiful and functional at the same time. However, like many hobbies, quilting can take a back seat due to time constraints and other responsibilities. However, carving out time for quilting can help reduce stress levels, increase focus and creativity, and lead to better overall mental health. Watergirl Quilt Co. is your small but mighty quilt shop located in Prescott, Ontario. We offer a plethora of quilting supplies online, including Bernina sewing machines, fabrics, notions, and more. Here are some tips on how to make quilting a priority, and shop with us today!

Schedule Quilting Time

Set aside a specific time to quilt each day or week based on other commitments. Setting regular quilting time alone or with friends helps in creating a routine and trains your mind to prioritize quilting.

Create a Quilting Space

Having a dedicated area where you can retreat and focus on your quilting projects is ideal. A space full of natural light or a comfortable chair helps create an environment that inspires and invigorates your creativity.

Plan and Prepare

Planning and preparation are essential steps to making progress on any quilting project. Plan out quilting projects and separate them into manageable tasks to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Preparing cuts and blocks can help speed up the quilting process, making it less daunting.
