Why Choose Quilting as a Hobby?

Quilting is a hobby that’s always in style and one that can be enjoyed in different ways. Whether you’re looking for a new hobby, or are stuck on what to do with all of your spare fabric scraps, quilting is an excellent option. Quilting is also less expensive than many other home décor projects because it uses recycled materials like old clothing. Plus, if you get tired of your project, you can always turn it into something else by repurposing the fabric or artfully embellishing it!

Types of Home Decor Items That You Can Make from Quilting

Here are a few fabric crafts that you can make other than a traditional quilt.
