  • 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.
