When I tell people that I am a quilter, almost without fail, they tell me that they’ve always wanted to learn to quilt. They usually say it wistfully while glancing off in the distance, as if learning to quilt is a monumental task like, say, flying to the moon. I’m here to tell you, it’s not. All we do is cut fabric into small pieces and sew it right back together. Anyone can do it. You can do it. And you should do it. Quilting is fun, therapeutic, creative, relaxing, challenging,,,and maybe most surprisingly of all, it’s a social activity.

I am a 100% self-taught quilter.  I’ve learned some things the hard way and I still have others to learn, but I’ve gotten pretty good at the basics. I want to share all that I’ve learned with you. If you want to learn to quilt, need to brush up your skills, or just want to hear what I have to say, join me every Monday and Thursday for my Learn to Quilt series. It is geared towards the total novice quilter, but there will definitely be some tips for those of you who are already quilting. Here are the topics I’m going to cover:

See you on Monday for Lesson 1 – Learn to Quilt: Basic Skills.

    Thank you! My grandmothers live too far away to help me and I’ve been trying on my own with little success. So nice to see others interested!
