This is the main table of contents for ALL the quilting lessons and tutorials.
I know – it looks like a lot. (There’s a shorter, nutshell overview here.)
You can start at the beginning, or jump right in to any tutorial that catches your eye.
At the end of every lesson you’ll find links to the other lessons on the same topic, a link to move to the next topic, and a link to come back to this table of contents.
Also remember that all Shiny Happy World patterns have links to all the tutorials you’ll need for that project – so every pattern is its own little workshop. You can work through the project, hitting all the lessons as you need them, and only refer to this table of content (or the search feature) if you’re looking for something extra.
