Great beginner quilt for a class (and a quilt-as-you-go). Also fun for a fabric exchange to clear out some "stash"! Everyone chooses their own focal flower (can even use a fancy silk flower!) and friends exchange pre-cut strips. Make 2: one in blue with a fat car and one in pink for a bridal shower gender reveal. The ideas are limitless.
cutting tutorial. As a self taught quilter, I wish I had known this earlier! This is so much more than a cutting tutorial. It is an online course which will produce a completed quilt - LOTS of great tips especially for the beginner like me. I bookmarked the webpage.
