Beginning Quilter 2022 Sampler

This is a 9-month Block of the Month program that begins in March 2022 (March-November). Fabric is not included. (Photo is a mockup of the fabrics being used by the instructor.)

This quilt is designed with beginning quilters in mind. You should know how to sew a 1/4″ seam and use a rotary cutter before signing up. Lessons will include tips for successfully completing each block. However, even experienced quilters may hone their skills by participating in this Block of the Month!  

  • Each month, you’ll be sent instructions and a video tutorial to complete a single block.
  • You’ll also have access to a private Facebook group with help available from the instructor and your fellow quilters.
  • Monthly live sew-a-longs, where you can work on the block or just chat with others in the group. 
  • In Month 10, you’ll be sent a Bonus video with instructions for finishing your quilt. 
  • If you keep up, your quilt can be finished before the holidays!
The quilt finishes at 60″ square. You can make it bigger by making additional blocks. Each block is 12″ finished.
