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.
Tutor information: Amanda Jane Ogden is a qualified and experienced teacher of textiles, who also designs fabrics and writes quilt and sewing patterns for national magazines and for sale online.
