Maple Leaf Log Cabin – Fat Quarter Friendly Fall Quilt Pattern and Tutorial from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Maple Leaf Log Cabin is one of the first quilts I designed and published the pattern to. It was before I discovered modern quilting, so it is very traditional, but perfect for fall.

But we just gave the quilt an update using modern fabrics and it looks fantastic. I just love how it turned out in Summer’s End from FIGO, which just goes to show you that fabric choice can change the entire look of a quilt, bringing it from very traditional to modern.

The quilt combines the maple leaf and log cabin blocks, then sets it in a ...

Rulerwork & Stitch-in-the-Ditch with pressed open seams – Triangle Master Class from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

The Quilt Police are going to have a problem with this video … I show you how I stitch-in-the-ditch with my seams pressed open. GASP!

I think once upon a time when quilting fabric, thread, sewing machines and batting weren’t as good as they were today, this may have cause some issues. So we had this piece of knowledge passed down that you can’t press your seams open and if you do, sitching-in-the-ditch is out for quilting options.

But as long as you are using quilt shop quality cotton, high quality thread, batting, and a modern sewing machine, not ...

Easy Loop Meander – Beginner Friendly Free Motion Quilting Stitch from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Today we’re going to look at how I quilted Whirligig, our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie pattern with an easy loop meander.

This beginner-friendly free motion quilting stitch is great as an all over design. For Whirligig, I wanted something fast, but that I could customize to fit the size of the blocks and quilt the background separately from the print fabrics.

So I loaded the quilt on sideways so I was quilting from top to bottom so I could quilt the entire way across without having to break my thread. Then I quilted the easy loop meander in the ...

How to sew 4-at-a-Time No Waste Flying Geese – Triangle Masterclass from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Triangles quilts are absolutely beautiful, but they can also be intimidating. Getting your blocks to turn out the right size with all of your points in the right place can be a bit of a challenge.

That’s why we created the Triangle Masterclass, a collection of eight videos focusing on different types of triangle units that are commonly used in quilts.

In today’s video we’re making 4-at-a-time Flying Geese. They’re also called no-waste flying geese. We’re starting out with one square that is 1.25 inches larger than your finished block width for the large ...

Easy background filler and waves! Free motion quilting tutorial from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

In today’s video I show you how I quilted Undulation, our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie quilt pattern.

The quilting is really stunning and helped separate the fat quarter prints from the background, but there’s absolutely nothing complicated about the quilting designs. It just looks really amazing when you combine some simple elements.

You get to see a quilting play-by-play as I talk through what I am doing and why as you see me quilt in real time on a Go Pro camera.

I used a series of wavy lines in the background, working my way from the block ...

Offset Log Cabin Tutorial & Pattern! Fat Quarter Friendly – Undulation by Quilt Addicts Anonymous from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Sewing an offset log cabin has been on my quilt bucket list for more than a decade and we’re finally doing it today!

This is seriously one of the coolest blocks out there. The print strips are fatter than the background strips, which makes the block appear curved even though it is made out of a bunch of rectangles.

That makes for some seriously fun layout possibilities like the undulating curve we are creating over two rows. But the fun of the log cabin is that there are an almost endless amount of layouts you can choose from once ...

Easy Star & Loop Meander – Quilting Stitch Tutorial from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

For our remake of Twinkle, I chose a super simple star and loop meander.

This design is very beginner friendly. You just need to be able to quilt a loop and a five-pointed star, both of which you probably have been doodling since grade school.

I love this design because it is fast, simple and looks great on kids quilts and patriotic quilts.

I quilted this on my longarm, but it is just as easy on your home sewing machine. Enjoy and tag us on the socials if you give it a go.

Star Block Fat Quarter Friendly Quilt! Beginner-Friendly Pattern from Fat Quarter Workshop from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Twinkle is one of my favorite patterns in my best-selling book Fat Quarter Workshop. It is a large scale block that features two colliding stars.

The design of the block makes it great for fabric collections that have a lot of low volume neutrals that don’t offer a lot of value contrast with the background. We use them in the center of the block and the darker fabrics as the star points to clearly define the block and all all the fabrics to shine.

The original fabric in the book quilt is long gone, so we remade Twinkle for ...

Rulerwork quilting in diamond quilt block! Longarm or Domestic Rulerwork Quilting Tutorial from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I just love diamond blocks. They look a lot harder to put together than they actually are, and I believe they deserve special treatment when you quilt them.

So in this tutorial I show you how I use straight and curvy rulers to stitch-in-the-ditch to outline the diamonds and then create uniform arcs inside the blocks. The results are stunning.

Super fast fat quarter quilt perfect for fussy cutting from Quilt Addicts Anonymous
