I'm Michele Foster a quilt designer, author, web developer, pet dog trainer and teacher from Ottawa, Canada. I am the founder of the Quilting Gallery (http://quiltinggallery.com/) web site which I started in December 2007 as a way to combine my passion for quilting and my work life as a freelance web developer. The site has now grown to be a world-wide community-driven site for quilters.
Since 2012, I have been teaching quilt making online with detailed photo tutorials that are available as PDF files. With my Learn to Quilt Booklets, I have taught hundreds of quilters from around the world. I have also designed and published my own quilting patterns that are also available in PDF format for instant download.
My quilting booklets, patterns and tutorials can be found at Mishka's Playground, http://mishkasplayground.com/.
The Breezy Beginner's Sampler Quilt contains 13 traditional quilt blocks set in either a standard layout or an on-point layout.
This 70-page booklet is broken down into several major sections including: about the quilt, fabric requirements, beginner's lessons, tutorials for half-square and quarter-square triangles, the 13 quilt blocks, assembling the quilt top and an appendix for the on-point layout. Detailed photo tutorials are provided throughout.
This is truly a Beginner's Quilt as the first 10 blocks are no more complicated than creating half-square triangles. The remaining three blocks up the complexity level a little. The quilt blocks finish at 12" square and are based on a 3x3 grid, which means they are made up of 3 rows and 3 columns resulting in large pieces.
This booklet does not include instructions for finishing your quilt top into a completed quilt.
You may use this booklet to create quilts for your own personal use, for free or for sale. However, please credit Michele Foster of Mishka's Playground for the design. No mass production is allowed.
