Hello Friends! We are sew excited to announce a sew along designed just for beginners! Even if you have zero sewing experience, this is the free quilt class for you! Each week from August 1 through November 7, we will be putting this quilt together from start to finish, from getting your supplies all the way to quilt binding, and we would love for you to join us.
Have you always wanted to learn to quilt? Do you want to improve your quilt making skills? This is the perfect starter quilt to learn with. We’re offering free quilting video tutorials on YouTube starting August 1. With our free pattern and tutorials, you will be surprised by how easy it can be to make this quilt.
This beautiful sampler quilt was designed to build your skills, block by block. The Ultimate Beginner Quilt measures 50.5″ square and is made with 12 fat quarters, along with sashing and border fabrics. For this sew-along, you have options – you can make the quilt that looks like ours with The Ultimate Beginner Quilt Kit, or you can choose your own fabrics and make it your own. For your other quilting supplies, The Ultimate Sewing Notions Kit has all of our favorite top-quality notions to give you a good start on your quilting journey!
Sew Along Schedule
Join Kimberly Jolly as she shows you how to sew each part of this quilt from start to finish. Along with the free video tutorials, we’ll provide additional sewing tips each week on the blog. A new block pattern will be released with each video.
This beautiful sampler quilt was designed to build your skills, block by block. For this sew-along, you have options – you can make the quilt that looks like ours with The Ultimate Beginner Quilt Kit, or you can choose your own fabrics and make it your own with the Fabric Requirements provided.
For this quilt you’ll need the following fabric amounts:
• 12 Fat Quarters*
• 7/8 Yards neutral color (we chose white) for sashing which goes between the blocks
• 1 1/8 Yards for the border
• 3 3/8 Yards for the back of the quilt
For the batting, we suggest Happy Cloud Batting in Throw Size
*A Fat Quarter is a quarter of a yard that’s cut wider, at 18″ x 21″ so that you have more room to work with. Read more about various types of fabric precuts.
Use this handy Cutting Guide to plan the layout of your cuts for each block.
