Make Your First Quilt, online course with Amanda Jane Ogden

Using quilter's pins to hold the quilt layers


This online course shows you how to make your very first quilt. So long as you can use a sewing machine to make a straight stitch, you will be fine because everything else is explained.

You will be making a small square or oblong quilt (big enough to be a throw or playmat or cot quilt).

You will make design decisions, cut and join fabric pieces, then join rows, layer up your quilt, add quilting and finally finish and bind it.
