Attention to Detail

With sewing, the devil’s in the details. While you can certainly make some mistakes along the way and things will turn out okay, there are a lot of small-yet-important factors to pay attention to whilst quilting. Seams, cuts, materials, and so much more require a keen eye and razor-sharp focus to be handled properly!


Like many things in life, your quilting project is going to take some time. As nice as it would be to have the instant gratification of being done in an hour or less, we think it makes the end results all the more satisfying. Sewing and quilt making requires you to be patient, sit still, and commit in order to be successful. And, as we all know, patience is a virtue and can be beneficial in many aspects of life — not just quilt making!

Following Instructions

While there isn’t always a step-by-step guide to walk you through your sewing project, there are things that must be done in a certain order and in a certain way to achieve a positive end result. This requires some discipline and the ability to follow instructions — a skill that will also serve you well in other facets of your life! Now, we’re not saying follow all the instructions you’re given all the time in every situation. But, in many cases, it may serve you well to have the ability to stay disciplined and follow directions.

Lastly, sewing and quilt making is an excellent opportunity to flex your creative muscles. While you’ll have to loosely follow certain sewing basics to get your desired end result, there are plenty of opportunities to add your own spin on the project. Having the ability to create something and think creatively will serve you well in sewing and in life!
