It's Nearly Time!!! Beginner Quilt Along - September 2014

Beginner Quilt Along
Beginner Quilt Along
The next Beginner Quilt Along will take place in September 2014.

I have hosted this quilt along before with great success. It's a wonderful way to take your first step into the quilting world and prepare you with the skills you need to tackle those beautiful patterns you've been eyeing off. Best of all, it's free!!!

The tutorials are designed with beginners in mind. You do not need any prior quilting knowledge or special skills. I will take you through everything you need to know to produce a complete quilt. This includes quilting and binding. 

The schedule will be as follows:

* Fabric, Tools and Other Toys (including the requirements for your quilt) - 29 August 2014
Note: You will need to read this and have your fabric ready to start piecing the quilt top in the first week.

* Piecing the Quilt Top - 15th September 2014

* Quilting, Quilting, Quilting - 22nd September 2014

* Binding the Quilt - 29th September 2014

I have created a Facebook support group called the Fantastic Quiltastic Adventure. This is a great place to ask questions and see what other participants are creating. I also use the group to offer little hints, tips and words of encouragement along the way. We had a great time during the last quilt along. In fact, a number of the participants have stayed on to create another quilt this time. It really is addictive. 

Check out some of the spectacular creations from the last quilt along at Some Fantastic Quiltastic Quilts

I can't wait to get started and hope to see you there. 


  1. This is exciting! Would you be able to share the materials list before the 29th? Just curious. I'm looking at some fabric right now and would like to get the right amount for this project as I plan on following along! If not, I understand. :-)

    1. Hi Laura, I've had a few people ask, so I will share the quilt requirements in the Facebook group this morning ; )
