Learning how to make a quilt is easier than it looks. Like baking, quilting is all about the measurements of the “ingredients” or in this case, the fabrics. As long as you have the right tools, you can learn how to make a quilt quickly and easily, even if you have never quilted before.

Every quilt starts with a basic building block - literally.  And not all quilt blocks are created equal – some are easy for anyone to master, while others are more intricate and can be used in quilts that are created specifically as art pieces. Like the Flying Geese-style block above, you can you can create blocks out of something as simple as a fabric square cut into halves. This is called the half square triangle method, and it is an incredibly popular method to use amongst quilters who are just getting started in the quilting world. The half square triangle method allows you to use pieces of the same pattern of fabric to easily compose blocks for a larger quilt top.
