We get this question all the time: How is "patchwork" different from "quilting"? Aren't they the same thing? To the uninitiated, it can be a bit confusing, but it's not too complex once you know the basics.

When it comes to quilting, prints are prints, right? Yes and no. You certainly don't need any fancy knowledge to know what strikes your fancy — and that's a great way to choose fabric. But it can be helpful (especially for quilting newbies) to know a little about the different types of prints out there, what they're called, and the best ways to put them to work in your designs.

Solid quilting fabrics aren't everyone's jam. But some designs really do need a neutral, non-distracting fabric to make the piecing or quilting shine. What's a pattern-lover to do?

Quilting newbie? Take it easy on yourself and start with precut fabric. These convenient packs are pretty standard everywhere you look, and come in 5-inch squares (called charm packs), 10-inch squares (called layer cakes) and 2.5-inch strips (usually called jelly rolls).

File bargello under "we just can't look away." These bold, rainbow-hued creations are certainly pretty, but many quilters also assume they're pretty difficult to make. Surprise: They're actually easy. You totally can (and should!) make one.

You've finished your quilt top, and now it's time to quilt it! Angela wraps things up by walking you through quilting an all-over free-motion design, then trimming and binding your beautiful new quilt.
Things are starting to take shape! In this lesson, learn how to make X blocks for the border, then bring all of your blocks together in the assembly stage.
You've gotta love half-square triangles. They are used in a lot of quilt patterns, including this one! Here, Angela shows you how to make beautiful pieced borders two at a time and arrange them for maximum impact.
Follow along as Angela breaks down the flying Dutchman block. First make the elements and organize them into groups. After that, see how to make and arrange eight flying geese, before putting them all together.
Meet Angela and begin by choosing the fabric, size and colorway for your Glorious Dawn quilt. Then get started on the center star panel. This star block is easier than it looks: you only need a four-patch, plus some stitching and flipping!
