Meet the Novice Stripe Quilt Sewing Pattern + Online Course

Make your first quilt with the Novice Stripe pattern

The beginner friendly quilt Novice Stripe is part of a brand new line of sewing patterns for CocoWawa Crafts, where you will also find the more advanced Dewdrop quilt.

This quilting pattern comes with two different options. You can get the pdf pattern by itself as usual in which you will get the pattern pieces and booklet with the instructions. Or you can go for our first online quilting course, where we use the Novice Stripe quilt pattern as the base to teach you all the basics about quilting.

About the online course

You can access the online course through the popular teaching platform Udemy. There, you will also be able to download the pattern pieces and a booklet with the written instructions.

Through a wide variety of video tutorials, those new to quilting will learn everything from which materials to use and the best and most practical tools, to different sewing techniques, block construction, how to quilt and sandwich layers together and to create and apply bias binding, also called bias tape.

We are taking you through the whole process of how to sew the Novice Stripe quilt and everything you learn, you will be able to apply to any other quilt you wish to make in the future. Although much of the information is shared in between both formats, the idea is for you to follow the online tutorials at Udemy while consulting the booklet.

On the videos, you will find detailed and more lengthy explanations of every section, which are divided in lectures.

We hope that you are as excited as we are to start your quilting journey. Let’s go! 

Details beginner friendly quilt

The Novice Stripe quilt features a beautiful and simple design made out of 6 blocks sewn together and with a colourful rectangle in the middle of each one of them.

You can mix and match the colours of the background with the rectangles as you please. Maybe you like prints? Or you prefer choosing some vibrant solids to combine with a softer palette?

The size of this beginner friendly quilt (34x50'' or 87x126cm) is ideal if you have lots of scraps of fabric at home. It is also perfect for quilt novices as it is easier to work with and sew due to its size. The quilt will look very nice hanging on a wall, as a gift to a loved one or for a baby's crib.
