Skill Builder Sampler

BWS tips button

If you are a beginning quilter, or if you're just looking to expand the skills you already have, you'll want to know about this: The talented Leila is kicking off a "Skill Builder Sampler" quilt-along, beginning June 17.

Each month we'll make three blocks that focus on one or two particular skills. We'll start with the basics (cutting, seam allowance, and value) and as the year goes on, we'll move up to some more advanced skills like curves and paper-piecing. Trying something new is always scary, but wouldn't it be so much less scary to try it with a whole group? Here's your chance!

Thanks, Leila, for setting this up! I'll definitely be playing along.

I'm in a Flickr quilt bee that is basically doing the same concept, so I think I am going to sign up for this one too!
