Machine Quilting Basics
Sure, quilting on a sewing machine is perfectly fine. But if you're ready to upgrade, you may want to look into a mid-arm quilting machine. Yes, they're pricier and take up more space, but they're specifically designed to make quilting soooo much easier. No idea how? Oh, let us count the ways.
If there's anything we like more than making quilts, it's got to be free quilt patterns. Which is why Angela Walters, host of our uber-popular Midnight Quilt Show series, is our quilting BFF: not only can you download her most popular patterns below (did we mention they're free?!), but you can also stitch along with Angela as she works up each quilt. The only question: Which one will you make first?!
Ready to find your center? Tonight, Angela becomes one with the piecing as she makes a stress-relieving half-square triangle quilt.
Angela's reminded of her age as she relies on her kids to keep up with the digital world. Watch as she uses two basic shapes to create a mod half-square triangle quilt that's easier to make than it looks.
