Craftsy, a daily deal site I mentioned last week, is offering a fun way to make a quilt for FREE!

There are 12 classes, 10 that teach you how to do new blocks and 2 dedicated to finishing the quilt.

You can view the classes whenever you want and they are fully interactive.

I grew up with a mama that quilted and love knowing how to do it, but will admit that they idea of breaking up a big project into month segments sounds awesome (and achievable).

See more entertainment deals.

      Thank you for posting this!!!  I have dabbled with quilting, but since our 7th born is almost here, time is very minimal.  Hopefully, this will be much more managable!!!

      How do we sign up for free?

        I signed up on the website then searched in online courses under quilts and found the free one.

      Jenny, thanks so much for posting this.  My sister and I have been talking about making quilts with some of my mom’s clothing since she passed away on August 16 from melanoma.  We really don’t have much spare time with our little ones right now, so this should be really AWESOME for us!  THANK YOU so much!

        T shirt quilts are great to do to use clothing as a memory quilt.

        I just finished making quilts from the clothing of a friend of mine.  I did a small “baby” size, simple nine patch.  Not sure if they will say this, but when making quilts from clothing, use iron on stabilizer on the back.  It makes cutting the fabric and sewing it together MUCH easier!

      Thanks! I’ve got bags of my now college-aged daughter’s club volleyball shirts saved up for a T-shirt quilt, I’ve just always felt to overwhelmed to start it since I taught myself to sew!!

    • Tons and tons of quilt shops offer a block of the month program as well, but the cost changes from shop to shop – some even call it the $5 quilt because you pay $5 the first month and as long as you keep coming back each month you don’t pay again! It’s a really neat way to make a quilt, on a timeline and with a teacher! My mom is an amazing quilter, I have always thought if I wanted to get into quilting I would find a BOM program instead of bugging her ;)

      I received a sewing machine for Christmas, this will be fun!

      I am doing this!  It is an awesome site and very informative!  The instructions are very clear!  I have quilted a good bit, but still find this a wonderful site. I believe it would also be great for beginners.  For this program, quilters make two squares a month, each different (my understanding, at least they were for January) By October, you have 20 squares.  November is putting the squares together and December is quilting it!  Make about a 5 ft. X 5 ft. lap quilt.

        Some poster talk about time.  I have some quilting background..I was able to do both squares well within 2 hours.  Cutting, sewing, etc.

      Yay! Thanks Jenny, I have been looking for something like this for a long time. Thanks
