Learn to Quilt – #QuiltingTheory

If you are new to quilting (or patchwork, if you’d rather!), and are trying to understand how to do it, what all the quilting lingo means, how to find a 1/4″ seam allowance on your sewing machine and how to put a quilt together, this is a great place to start!

When I first started quilting, I found so much information spread about across the internet.

The #QuiltingTheory series collects all of this knowledge together. It takes you through all the principles of how to quilt before you even pick up a needle and thread, giving you all the background knowledge that you need to get going.

It also includes tutorials to practise quilting skills as well as hints and tips for planning a quilt and more advanced skills.
