Beginner Quilting: Craftsy Cozy Throw Quilt

Amy Gibson’s Craftsy Cozy Throw Quilt

It has been a loooong time, but I recently finished my latest quilting project! I made another one of Amy Gibson’s quilt patterns in the Learn to Quilt Series on Craftsy, the Cozy Throw Quilt. I couldn’t be more happy with the online video class or with my finished throw quilt.

This Craftsy class teaches you how to strip quilt. Strip quilting allows you to build you quilt blocks in a quick and efficient way. Although the individual blocks themselves look complicated to make but because they are actually cut from strips of fabric sewn together, the process is easier and faster than you might guess. It took me a long time to finish this throw quilt, but only because various family emergencies and baby sleep regressions made this easy quilt pattern into a rather drawn out process. It was hard to find a block of time to actually sew, and whenever I tried to, someone wandered over to unplug my sewing machine or push all the buttons on my sewing machine.

Amy Gibson gives very clear instructions and is a very good teacher. She teaches you how to accurately measure and cut strips of fabric for strip quilting. Then she teaches you how to make quilt blocks from those strips. My quilt is far from perfect but I love it.

Craftsy offers a pre made quilting kit for this class. It is a beautiful set of bright, feminine quilting cotton solids. I chose to make my own mix of muted colors in kona cotton quilting solids from fabric.com. If you don’t want to cut fabric strips then you can buy pre-cut jelly roll quilting fabric.
