So has anyone else seen or been getting this magazine? I have been getting it since issue 1 and loving it theirs so many projects in it and being a total quilt novice its been a great learning curve I've got to many quilt ideas in my head mainly pixel ones, its just making them possible because fabric is so pricey I thought I would share a picture of the quilt from the magazine, or at least how mine has turned out so far is till have 12 blocks left till its complete its very wonky in places but I guess that adds to its charm right?

I dont think i was suppose to join it as much as i have because the mag said only to join in sets of 6, but from video tutorials i have watched its going to end up being sewn together like this anyway so i figured why no do it now lol..(only rows 1/2 and 4/5 are sewn together im still waiting on replacement fabric for a block from issue 34 that i cut wrong

What video tutorials have you been watching? I can turn my sewing machine on, but that's about it. I'd like to try my hand at quilting and sewing in general. I even have a few books on the topic, but seeing something visual and having someone just explain it to me would be much more helpful. Any suggestions for good tutorials?
