Let’s learn how to make a quilt!
Any time you make a quilt – even if you’re working from a pattern – there are a bunch of decisions you have to make along the way. Options you need to choose. Maybe skills you need to learn.
I’ve organized here all the quilting tutorials on Shiny Happy World into groups that answer those questions you’ll be asking along the way. Think of this page as the table of contents linking out to all the info you’ll need.
If you’re just getting started, you’ll be able to work systematically through these posts with any Shiny Happy World pattern. There’s even a post about choosing a pattern! And there are plenty of free options if you just want to test out my method for Quilt As You Go and applique with fusible adhesive to see if you like it before you commit to a whole quilt.
So jump right in!
Each of these links will take you to a page with more info on that topic – usually including links to other pages with more detailed info and tutorials.
Each of those pages will have suggested links to keep moving you through the lessons. There will also always be a link back to this – the main Let’s Make a Quilt page – so you can refer back to the main Table of Contents as needed and jump to any topic you like.
