Get started with a simple modern pillow. Meghan helps you choose and cut your fabrics so you're ready to sew.
Sew up the Bright Side blocks to start your pillow. You'll use the same concepts again later to make a full quilt. Meghan shows you how to easily piece and press the blocks for best results, before adding border strips to complete the pillow front.
Learn a simple way to mark and quilt a crosshatch design on the pillow front. After that, prepare the back pieces and sew them together to create an envelope-style pillow cover that's beautiful (and removable!).
Now, look at the fat-quarter friendly Bright Side quilt as you learn how to select, cut and organize your fabric pieces. Big blocks make these steps go quickly!
Sew up the simple blocks and striped Bright Side blocks. Meghan demonstrates how to press them to ensure the small strips lie flat for quilting.
Finally, sew the blocks into rows and press the seams so they'll nest to make quilt top assembly a breeze. Plus, learn the best order to sew your rows together. Once your top is complete, it's up to you on how to baste, quilt and bind it. Don't worry; Bluprint has lots more classes to show you how!
