Quilting Basics

You can’t help but pet the fabric at the craft store, but you have no idea where to start making a quilt. Quilting Basics starts at the very beginning: “What do I need to make a quilt??”, includes my Dogwood Blossoms quilt pattern, and steps you through making your very first quilt. Each video was filmed live, so it’s like being here in my sewing room— with all laughs and chatter along the way. Come join me, and soon you’ll be confident saying, “I’m a quilter!”

Estimated time to complete (watching videos, sewing, etc): 8-10 hours

How to Make a Quilting Plan

But what the heck should you quilt where?? I know— it can feel overwhelming, especially when making those first leaps from choosing all over designs to semi-custom and custom quilting. Join me as I break down each section of the quilt— blocks, sashings, borders, and common shapes— to take a look at how different motifs fit in different spaces, how to make a plan on paper, and how to confidently make the leap to quilting your own gorgeous quilts.
