Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction
Welcome to Quilting for Fun & Profit
Preview
01:54
Section 2: Tools of the Trade
06:20

In this course you will learn the most basic quilting tools needed to get started which are the rotary cutter, the rotary mat and a ruler.

Section 3: Selecting Patterns & Fabrics
03:02

Quilting patterns can overwhelm you; but with a little research and time, you will find the perfect pattern. Choosing the fabric for a quilting project can be as much fun as doing the project itself. Most quilters recommend 100% cotton because it is easy to sew, mark, press and hand quilt.

Section 4: Strips & Blocks
11:25

When cutting and assembling your blocks you must refer to your pattern and cut your fabric to those directions.

10:27

The process of creating your quilt consists of cutting strips from your fabric which can be cut into different shapes. Once this process is completed, you can proceed to sewing your strips together.

07:07

This is where the fun begins and your quilt begins to take shape!

Section 5: Attaching the Borders
04:32

Once blocks are all sewn together, you will then add your borders. The border will complete the top layer of your quilt; getting it ready for layering, which is the top, the batting and the backing.

Section 6: Batting The Quilt
02:59

Batting is the insulating fabric, which is the part of the quilt that creates warmth and is layered between the quilt top and the backing. Many quilters recommend non-bearding batting; however, if you are looking for light weight batting, flannel is a good choice, but it must be pre-washed.

Section 7: Quilting
04:10

The Longarm quilting machine is one of the ways in which to hold all the three quilt layers together. This also will provide a very secure and professional look.

Section 8: Binding
17:58

Binding is the final step which covers the raw edges of your quilt and gives the quilt a finished look.

Section 9: Bonus Video
04:10

Once you have finished your four-block sampler quilt, think bigger! You now have the knowledge at your fingertips to create your masterpiece. Just remember, no matter the size, your quilt is made up of just small strips of fabric, broken up into segments. Take it one block at a time!

01:28

Instructor Biography

Linda DuBois, Professional Quilter

Linda DuBois has been quilting for over ten years and has created over thirty five quilts of various sizes. She has a talent and passion for quilting and believes anyone can quilt, all they need is a little instruction; which is why Linda decided to create this course.

Linda believes that anyone can learn to quilt; even though they may think it is too overwhelming and complicated.

Linda remembers when she first started quilting. She was overwhelmed because she looked at the quilt as the whole picture; but then realized that each block must be broken down. So, don’t look at your quilt as a whole, look at how your blocks are constructed and break them into smaller segments. Take small bites, break the block down into smaller pieces and soon you will have your masterpiece.

Remember, all the small pieces are used to make your total quilt. Linda’s most valuable piece of advice to us all, work one block at a time!
