Five Basic Quilts for Beginners that will have you wanting to sew!
My sewing skills are really pretty basic (like 6th grade home ec. basic) Although I don’t know a lot, I was still able to make 5 different quilts last year that I am pretty proud of! If you are looking for a simple quilt to make, here are the 5 that I was able to make in 2013 (with clickable images):
This last pirate quilt may possibly be able to be classified as “intermediate” because it did involve piecing, and quilting in a zig-zag pattern, but the stitches were still straight and it was still very basic. I would say as a very beginner I wouldn’t attempt a twin size quilt like I did, but a crib or doll quilt would bring it back into the “beginner” category.
One of the things that I would like to accomplish in 2014 is to sew a quilt for our future daughters bedroom. and I’d like to stretch myself a bit and sew something a little more complex than the quilts I made last year. Maybe learn how to do a meandering quilt stitch? Maybe use something like chenille or minky? Maybe sew something more than just straight lines? Anyone have any suggestions for the “almost intermediate” quilter?
