For beginning quilters, making your first quilt can seem overwhelming. Don't fret: Craft Online University is here to help you find success and have fun making your quilts. Guiding you through the fundamentals of making a quilt - from how to choose your fabric to how to assemble a basic quilt block - this fun course is a no-stress introduction for newer quilters as well as those looking for a refresher on some of the basics.

You will learn how to:

  • Use a rotary cutter as well as other quilting tools like a ruler
  • Understand your quilting fabric and use "bias" to your advantage
  • Cut different types of quilt units like triangles of various sizes
  • Pin, press and assemble your quilt units into a quilt block
  • Sew your quilt units (or pieces) together
  • Sew an accurate seam (the join where two pieces of fabric meet)
  • Implement different quilting techniques like paper piecing and string piecing
  • Bind your quilt with ease

Once you've learned these basics, Mary Fons will teach you how to create three popular - and very different - types of quilting blocks: A String Block, A Log Cabin, and a paper-pieced "Economy" block. You can create a quilt out of any one of these blocks - or combine them for a fun look. If these aren't your style, your course registration also includes 6 additional digital quilt patterns to get you started on your first quilt today!


As an added bonus, learn as Mary Fons teaches you the different type of triangle quilt units you can make - from super simple half square triangles to pyramids. Known as one of the most versatile quilt units, Mary Fons will inspire you to get cutting and experiment with creating quilt blocks from your very own imagination!

And don't worry, if you find yourself running into trouble or have any questions, Mary Fons will be right there to help you in the interactive forum along with your classmates. Get 1-on-1 advice and share your finished quilt blocks with other students for a truly interactive experience!
