The tutorial on here is good. I've made a small quilt and learnt a bit from these tutorials.

I do recommend doing a smaller quilt first though, a table runner is a good project.

I made this one when quite new to sewing and it was really a lot easier than I was expecting it to be. I did a step-by-step tutorial on how to do it too which you might want to have a look at, although I'm not professing any experience as it was my first ever one.

I loved making it and it's in pride of place on our bed.

Just markingmy place- I've been collecting scraps and pretty bits of material with the aim of doing this soon. Sounds like a lovely project as the nights draw in...

you tube is your friend.

I got a lot of tips from this missouri company on youtube. Link to one of the videos but others have beginners tips.
