9 Awesome Quilting Tutorials

Standard

The internet contains a wealth of resources for anyone who wants to learn a skill such as quilting. Between YouTube and quilting blogs, you can learn everything you need to know to make beautiful quilts. Here are 9 wonderful examples.

  1. Teresa Down Under has many tutorials on her website and on her YouTube channel. This is one of my favorites, and I hope to use this easy pattern soon.
  1. This tutorial inspired me to get a Dresden plate ruler. You don’t have to make the blades from a charm pack; you can use fat quarters or any old bits of fabric you have left over from other projects. You can make them up to 8” tall.
  1. An adorable chicken quilt I’m looking forward to making.
  2. How to make a string quilt.
  3. Pool noodles: an essential quilting tool.
  4. When you have a colorful quilt, how do you decide what color thread to use for the quilting?
  5. The stuff and fluff method of quilting a large quilt on a standard sewing machine. I haven’t done this yet. I recently had a queen-sized quilt professionally quilted because I was too intimidated by this process. (More about that in a future post.) But it’s interesting, and I want to eventually try it.
  1. Someday I’m going to try free-motion quilting. Until then, I’m going to watch tutorials like this one.
  1. How to bind a quilt.

Now it’s your turn. Do you know of a great online quilting tutorial, or have you created one yourself? Please share a link in the comments below.
