  • We feature free videos with step-by-step instructions, text transcripts and handouts with patterns in PDF format.
  • You may choose to focus on one skill at a time (Beginner Basics) or “jump right in” with a full size quilt (Quilting Classes).
  • We also showcase small projects where a beginner can “practice” piecing techniques before conquering larger ventures.
  • You can post your creations in our Gallery or enjoy viewing others’ accomplishments.
  • Last but not least, don’t forget to browse our Encyclopedia where you can find a plethora of quilting terms.

 

Hope you learn to enjoy quilting as much as we do!
