Let’s Make a Quilt! – a Free Workshop to Learn Quilt As You Go and Applique

There are a LOT of free lessons here at Shiny Happy World.


That’s awesome – but sometimes it can be a little overwhelming.

Do you want to learn to make a quilt using my super easy Quilt As You Go method, paired with painless applique with fusible adhesive?

Then I’ve got the perfect free workshop for you!

It pulls all of my QAYG and applique lessons together in one place, and arranges them in the best way for you to learn the whole process from start to finish. We cover everything from fabric and supplies, to picking a pattern, and all the steps of the process – including binding your quilt!

This class is for you if. . .

  • You’ve never made a quilt of any kind.
  • You’ve made pieced quilts but have never tried applique.
  • You’ve made applique quilts but want to try a new method.
  • You’ve made pieced and applique quilts but you’ve never tried Quilt As you Go.
  • You already know how to make all kinds of quilts and you want to make one with some new friends.

This class will take you step by step through everything you need to know to make a cute and cuddly quilt!

You work through the lessons at your own pace – using any pattern you like. There are even several free block patterns you can download to give it a try!

The class is organized on the Teachable platform, designed especially for online workshops. When you follow the link below you’ll be prompted to create a Teachable log in and password. (If you already have a Shiny Happy World account I recommend using the same password for both that and your new Teachable account.) You’ll use that Teachable log in to access any of the workshops and clubs I host on Teachable.

Happy quilting!

    I want you to know that I keep referring back to this class as I quilt. It is so informative and available whenever I need it. Thank you.

  2. I’ve always loved your tutorials so I finally decided to sign up for this free class–I mean, it’s FREE! so why not? So glad I did. You cover so many skills in this conglomeration of tutorials, some I’d seen here before, some were new to me, but all were as clear and useful as ever! Thanks so much for assembling so much great useful reference material into one easy-to-reference source. You’re a valuable member of the quilting community, Wendi <3

    Awesome class Wendi. I’ve made many quilts but could never get my head around instructions for QAYG. Your method is so sensible and as usual your teaching is amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
