There’s more than one way to do anything – this applies to quilting too. While it means there’s always something new to learn or master (this is a good thing!), it also means you can use your favourite technique to achieve your creative vision. We love a challenge to try new things, whether it’s putting together an heirloom modern t-shirt quilt, documenting your trip with fabric or just trying a new-to-you technique. Our makers cleverly dip into their toolboxes of skills to bring their quilts to life.
We MEET designer extraordinaire, Jennifer Sampou, and Gracey Larson of Burlap and Blossom Patterns. New challenges MOTIVATE us, like Capi’s touching story about her modern t-shirt quilts, with tips on how to make your own, or Judy’s story about how she blogged a big trip using fabric. MAKE a striking quilt – we’ve got quite a collection. There’s how to on QAYG cathedral windows, HSTs, HRTs, curved piecing, and great guides to better piecing, whether it’s mastering the ¼” seam or EPP.
