Best quilting courses


When it comes to quilting you have a lot of choices available. They range from traditional piecing to free-motion. Free-motion quilting is an advanced skill and will require a lot of practice before you will be happy with the results. This is something I would recommend having a book or a video available that can be watched repeatedly.

You could also take a lesson at your local quilt shop and find an experienced quilter who can teach you a lot of the techniques you will need.

In this article we will look at some basic quilting courses and how you can learn quilt making with them.
