Quilting Lessons and Tutorials

Here you’ll find all the free applique and quilting lessons and tutorials. They’re arranged by subject so you can work your way through the lessons in a systematic way.

I use a combination of Quilt As You Go and applique with fusible adhesive for all my quilts, so I’ve grouped all those lessons and tutorials first. You can work your way through these lessons using any of my applique patterns.

The QAYG and Fusible section is followed by additional lessons for different applique methods, more traditional piecing and quilting, and some sewing room organization tips.

Remember – all Shiny Happy World patterns have links to all the tutorials you need right in the pattern. You can purchase any pattern and work through it like a workshop.
