I love quilt tutorials

Well the first big email for Quilts for Queensland went out last night to over 80 ladies, wow, no wonder I was so flat chat trying to email everyone who was contacting me. I have a few more ladies to add to the list and if you didn’t receive the email and want to help just leave a comment with your email address and I’ll add you on. It is one mother of an email list! And can I just say that I am loving the quilts and blocks on our flickr page so don’t forget to join in over there. I still get a bit emotional when I think about who these quilts are going to.
And I know we have some beginner quilters out there which is just so great! Teaching yourself to quilt will have you hooked in no time. And since I’m a self taught quilter, youtube is my go-to place. A place where you can do a search on a technique or block and find a great tutorial in no time. Here are my favourites and I hope they provide some inspiration and help to you. Pinwheels anyone?

Another great tutorial I love is this one for a quilt as you go quilt. She is making a table runner but I would use a jelly roll or strips as wide as the fabric (generally 112cm/115cm) and you are sewing through your backing and batting as well as piecing at the same time. This method is called quilt as you go and is speedy! I think this one is for people dying to make a whole lap quilt but not sure where to start or wanting something quick and satisfying. I’m going to give this method a go………….

If you love precuts and jelly rolls, then this is a really pretty one. I would just cut strips of white quilters muslin/homespun instead of a white jelly roll as that is what I have at home but if you can get your hands on the white jelly roll then of course use that.

So there you have it! I could seriously spend all day watching the Missouri Quilt Co. tutorials. I hope these help you! If you have great tutorials on your blog or someone else’s just let me know and I’ll add them to this blog post to help our budding quilters out there.

  5. Hi Corrie

    I didnt receive the email-my email is brekki3@bigpond.com


  6. Thanks Corrie, the pinwheel one looks easy and I’ll watch the rest later on today. I don’t have any tools yet like a rotary cutter or mat. Where and what brands are the best to buy? I feel a little nervous actually starting out but you give lots of encouragement! Thanks :)

  7. Thanks Corrie, these are fantastic.
    I am a new quilter and have really struggled with some things. I had never thought to look at tutorials on YouTube. Very helpful and informative – hey, I may even complete a quilt :-)

    Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

    I can’t wait to watch these tutes once I have a few minutes! Thanks again for all your effort.

  13. I discovered the Missouri Star Quilt tuorials for a few monthes now too!!! They are absolutley inspiring and make every project look so simple, and they quilt with such JOY! I made my 1st quilt very recently, a rag quilt for a baby, and have since ordered alot of fabric, and a walking foot, and a quarter inch foot so I can get absolutley serious. I am hooked, and now that I have discovered the world of sewing/quilting blogs…. WOW, there is no end to the inspiration out there! xxx

  14. Jenny is a sweetheart and she really knows how to teach quilting.

    I am blessed to live near her…MSQC is my LQS. I know…it’s awesome!

  15. I just love tutorials stat!!

  16. Oh just what I needed! I haven’t plucked up the courage yet to make a block, I am such a coward! When i get a spare hour to myself i will browse and take the plunge!

  17. I’m another self taught quilting beginner. Thank you soo much, this will certainly help.

  18. Thanks… I love the quilt how you go.
