Learn to quilt!
Have you always wanted to learn how to quilt? Do you want to teach someone? Are you looking for a beautiful, full-size quilt for your own or a special gift? I have the answer for you – try Quilt Blocks at JoAnn’s Fabrics.
One of the most challenging parts of making a quilt is picking the fabrics and figuring out how much you need. It’s quite an investment to pick 12 fabrics, and if they don’t work the way you thought, you may not want to finish the project.
Cutting hundreds of pieces also takes time and skill. In Quilt Blocks’ Canyon Sunrise, the fabrics are already coordinated and pieces precut, so you are ready to sit down and sew. Some blocks teach you to sew strips and sub-cut into smaller units. These techniques save time and thread, and help create perfect patchwork.
What you need to make the Canyon Sunrise quilt:
The 12 block kits and a ‘Setting Kit’ that joins [sets] together all of the blocks are all sold separately. You’ll need batting, backing and binding to quilt and finish your quilt. Some blocks are intermediate skill level, you can see those because of the number of pieces or triangles. Some that have fewer pieces, or squares and rectangles only, will be quicker or simpler. however, don’t let a complicated-looking block stop you from trying it! Our instructions are full color, step by step, and even have measurements for each unit, so you’ll stay on track.
This Quilt Blocks design is only sold at JoAnn’s fabrics stores, but should be on line at Joann.com soon. We’ll share on our Quilt Blocks facebook page when it goes live. If you worried about learning to quilt on such a large project, try one block for a pillow. Or three for a table runner; or four for a lap warmer size. If you have questions, email or call the Quilt Blocks Studio. The info is on every kit so you can get quilting help.
Practice patchwork with our instructions, get comfortable your sewing machine, and enjoy working with these beautiful fabrics. One block at a time and soon you’ll learn to quilt. Canyon Sunrise is a perfect beginner’s quilt!
