Skill Builder

Watch this page for links to all of the Skill Builder Series posts by Piecemeal Quilts and Grey Cat Quilts! The Series is intended to help a brand new quilter learn the techniques and skills starting with the most basic information and progressing through more difficult tasks. If you don’t have access to a class, this is a great place to start!

As part of the Skill Builder Series, we have created a Test Your Skills Sampler, beginning September 2011. Click here for an index of posts.

I’ve changed the order the links are listed below so they follow a more logical progression. If you’re just learning to quilt, start at the top and work your way through the list.

  1. I just found this, thanks to a link on TQS forums.

    I’m a new quilter, working now on my 1st two quilts. Yes, 2 going at once. One top is nearly done, the other is about halfway. Sort of. One is a simple log cabin, hopefully not so inaccurate as to be what you lovingly termed “adventurous”! :) the other is a diary quilt, using different patterns from Mimi Dietrich’s diary quilt book.

    I’m always surprised at what I do and later people tell me it’s hard. I just try it, and go with it, and try again until I get it right.

    Oh, and I”m hand piecing…..

    Anyway, loved your series, and have bookmarked the skill builder links so I can learn some stuff!

  2. I am new to quilting.Like to learn new things.
    I have been sewing and alterations for years.
    This seems like more fun.

  3. Hi! Is it possible to follow your blog by email? I clicked onto the RSS icon and just got a pg. of gobbledy gook.
