  • Sewing quilt fabrics together
    Are you sure to want to remove this?
    While avid quilters have an array of methods available for joining blocks, there's one process to always keep in mind: quilt-as-you-go. Essentially, QAYG is a way to break down your quilting into more manageable pieces, making it a go-to for those who have smaller work spaces, are working on small-scale projects (like a patchwork bag), or are managing joint pain. Bonus: it's a great way to bust your stash! With that in mind, here are some fun QAYG joining techniques that help bring your blocks together in gorgeous fashion.

  • Patchwork quilting scene from startup library
    Are you sure to want to remove this?
    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.

  • Color Theory Pism Precuts 2.5in Strips
    Are you sure to want to remove this?
    A jelly roll, AKA a set of 2½″ precut fabric strips, is a major time saver for quilters. With the fabric already cut and coordinated, all that’s left to do is sew the strips into a fantastic quilt top! So if you have a few jelly rolls you've collected over the years, here are a few designs that'll put them to good use.

  • Half-Square Triangle Spinning Star Quilt
    Are you sure to want to remove this?
    Half-square triangles, or HSTs, have to be one of the most versatile quilt blocks around. No matter how you piece 'em together (yeah, there's more than one way to make an HST! ) the result is the same: a simple foundation block made in two contrasting fabrics, that can be arranged to create quilt designs ranging from crazy simple to beautifully complex.

    If you're looking for a way to show off all your gorgeous fabric scraps, this is the perfect project. Mix and match patterns and prints, or keep things simple with a limited palette. Once you've picked your fabric, things really start to speed up — simple fusing and topstitched wool felt strips add a quilted look (no piecing required!), so even if you're not super confident in your quilting skills, you can definitely pull off this project.

  • English Paper Piecing Quilted Floor Pillow
    Are you sure to want to remove this?
    English paper piecing, or EPP, is a classic quilting technique that never gets old. It involves wrapping fabric around a paper piece to stabilize and form a specific shape — usually hexagons — then basting and sewing by hand. It's a fun, yet simple way to create complex quilt blocks, and it's super easy to incorporate the technique into a ton of different projects. And since many EPP projects are comprised of little pieces of fabric, they're perfect to take on whenever your fabric stash starts to overflow juuust a smidge.

    Classic quilts blocks are a great way to nail some basic quilting skills. Take the Ohio Star block for example: it has half-square triangles (sewn into an hourglass shape) and a nine-patch construction, all rolled up into one beginner-friendly block. Bonus: the Ohio Star looks great by itself or as part of a larger sampler quilt.

    Before you dismiss hand quilting as something your great-grandma might have done, here's something you should know. Sewing your quilt by hand provides a soft finish that really can’t be achieved by machines. And nothing beats the zen of sewing something with needle and thread.
