This is a step-by-step video course to make a gorgeous quilt

You’re about to make a beautiful quilt, start to finish, with video guidance and tons of support the whole way through. I am OVER THE MOON with excitement to welcome you to How To Quilt!

This video series began more than a decade ago as a class called Your First Modern Quilt. I was inspired to re-visit the videos from that class by my Murder Mystery Quilt group, right here on this site, in order to create a resource for sharing techniques and advice as we work our way through the year, quilting and solving crime together.

Which made me think: why not share these quilt blocks with A LOT MORE PEOPLE?? And that’s how How To Quilt was born.

This video series guides you to sew a complete quilt, start to finish, with video to lead you every step of the way. This is a sampler quilt made of a dozen classic quilt blocks, including:

  • Log Cabin
  • Rail Fence
  • Nine Patch
  • Lattice
  • Pinwheel
  • Ohio Star
  • Card Trick
  • Flying Geese
  • Diamonds
  • Drunkard’s Path
  • Dresden Plate
  • Foundation Paper Piecing

For every block design, you’ll find a step-by-step video AND a downloadble PDF pattern to follow, complete with fabric requirements, cutting instructions, and assembly diagrams in full color. The series leads you through the entire process, from selecting and preparing your fabrics to sewing each block, then to making the quilt top and through to how to sew the quilting stitches and bind the finished quilt.

Along the way, there are photos and a chance for you to interact with other quilters, new and experienced, so that you can share your successes or ask questions or just make friends!
