We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler

The We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler is a series of quilt block tutorials that begins with basic quilting skills (cutting, accurate piecing) and builds up to sewing half square triangles, quarter square triangles, curves, applique, paper piecing and more!  This is the perfect quilt along to build your quilting skills.  We will have you saying, "I can do it!"  (scroll down for links to the tutorials)

Edited (5/15):  The Skill Builder Sampler will is available for purchase in book form!  It has been renamed "You Can Quilt!  Building Skills for Beginners" but covers the same skills with the easy, medium and challenging blocks and is a million times better than the original quilt along.  It is perfect for the beginning quilter or the experienced quilter who wants to branch out and learn new skills.  Find more information and order a signed copy in my Etsy shop or order on Amazon.  Because of the release of the book some posts have been removed.

Here are links to all of the We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler posts.  Feel free to join in at any time.  You can start at the beginning or jump in with the current block.  To see what others in the group are making, check our Flickr Group.
