  1. Very interested in these classes. Beginner quilter here, so I need as much help as possible. Thank you for the videos.

    1. Glad to hear you have found our site! Starting with a simple quilt/project is a good idea for beginners. (Check out our “Quilt Classes” and “Small Projects” tabs.) You’ll find more information about the quilting basics under our “Beginner Basics” tab.
      If you are interested in learning different techniques, you might want to try a sampler quilt. With each block, you learn a new quilting skill/method. When the quilt is complete, you’re ready to move on to more advanced projects. Here are links to our Sampler Quilts – SATURDAY SAMPLER – https://learnhowtoquilt.com/quilting-classes/saturday-sampler/
      SEASONAL SAMPLER – https://learnhowtoquilt.com/quilting-classes/seasonal-samplers-series/
      Hope to hear back from you when you complete a project. Happy Quilting in 2022!
