This seems like an easy enough project for a first attempt. Making a quilt is something I’ve always wanted to do but just have never found the time to do it nor a fabric store close by so that I can feel the fabric. Funny thing almost everything is on line now days.

So simple. I am motivated to learn quilting. I always thought I had to do the fantastical geometric designs, when bold shapes and simple lines drive my passion. Thank you for making this video. I now have purpose again for my sewing skills. I have so many ideas.
