THE ULTIMATE QUILT VIDEO

How to make a quilt - Learn to make a quilt from Beginning to End!

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!

How to make a quilt - Learn to make a quilt from Beginning to End! 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.

I’m using 2 of my fabric collections with FIGO Fabrics:
• Butterscotch
• Squeeze

I love when fabric collections meld together nicely. The pinks and oranges in this quilt are my favorite! Along with that backing fabric….

    Dana! Thank you! I’ve have been wanting to make a quilt forever, and there are resources but I haven’t found one yet that was beginning to end, what a beginner needs to know. I can’t wait to use this to make my very first quilt!! You’re awesome!

      Awesome! Thanks Toni! And yes….that’s how I felt too….there’s SO much quilting info out that it feels overwhelming to get started. So I hope this helps you out!
      🙂

    Dana, you are so inspiring! I have made a half dozen quilts … I’m not exactly a newbie? …but I have definitely had one “in progress” for a long time and just couldn’t find the interest to get back at it. I watched your whole video just for fun. You always make things so accessible. I feel like I might just pull that quilt out and finish it. 🙂

    Dana, I can’t thank you enough for posting this amazingly helpful video tutorial. This is my first quilt! I’ve been working on a twin size version for my daughter and am about halfway through the quilting step. My machine is a bit of an old beast, and you’ve made me seriously consider upgrading to a Baby Lock! Anyway, this has been such a fun project and your teaching is so thorough. I ‘m really grateful. And I love stripes, too!

    Hi Mrs. Dana!
    My name is Elizabeth Angell, I am 11 years old, and I just recently sewed a scrunchie and a circle skirt by watching your videos! You have such amazing videos and I absolutely love what you make! I’m currently working on a 2-layer circle skirts for my friends, but I do not have an iron at the moment. Do you have any suggestions that “substitute” ironing? I really love how my original double layer circle skirt came out! Thank you so much for all your amazing tutorials and videos! Have a great afternoon!
