Is quilting hard to learn?

Some quilts are definitely easier than others to put together, and for those who are just learning quilting fundamentals, the choices can be overwhelming. Below are four very helpful tips for beginner quilters, along with three of our favorite beginner quilting patterns.

Why is quilting expensive?

Quilts are expensive because of the labor required to make them. Quilts require pieces of fabric to be evenly cut and sewn together to get the basic shape of a blanket. Then that piece must be sewn together with batting, backing, and binding to create a finished blanket.

How long does a quilt take to make?

A simple baby-size quilt top (40” x 45”) will take anywhere from 3-9 hours to make. A simple large throw-size quilt top (60” x 70”) will take anywhere from 10-20 hours to make. If you are a beginner quilter, it might take you 2 or 3 times longer to make the same quilt top as an experienced quilter.
