Have you made a quilt yet??
Or maybe you’ve been thinking about it, but you just don’t know where to start?
So many terms, rules….rulers??
I feel you! I’ve been there! It can feel a little overwhelming.
So I’m here to free you from the fear of getting started!
I made the ULTIMATE QUILT VIDEO for you…(with more quilting videos to come). And I called it the Ultimate, because the video contains every single part of quilting that you need to know, all in one place.
So you can watch it, pause where you need to, come back to it later, etc. Obviously there are many additional tricks and info to learn about quilting, and many different ways to do it. But what was overwhelming to me when I started quilting, was knowing where to find the info. You know, all the basics kind of stuff to just make my first quilt.
So all that info is here for you! We’ll walk through the steps together.
This video can be used to make any quilt….but I am specifically using the STRIPEY QUILT PATTERN, which is FREE. You can grab it here in my shop.
In the video, we’ll make a baby size quilt, which is really manageable.
I’m using 2 of my fabric collections with FIGO Fabrics:
I love when fabric collections meld together nicely. The pinks and oranges in this quilt are my favorite! Along with that backing fabric….
Orange you glad you stopped by today?
Heh heh. But really, I hope you are. I think you’re going to enjoy making this simple quilt.
We’ll methodically go through the steps, but keep it moving at a fun pace.
