Best Rotary Cutter for Fabric – Efficient and Effective Quilting from Quilter's Review

Quilters and seamstresses need to cut through fabric often. Scissors may do the trick for a simple project, but fabric cutters are far more efficient. Easier on the hands and wrists, cutting wheels allow for a fluid cutting experience without the aches or pains. Rotary cutters can handle a variety of fabric types, from leather […]

Quilting Made Easy with Riley Blake and Cricut from Expect Moore

As an avid quilter, I love it when quilting can be made easier. There are so many steps and parts to quilting, so when some of those can be taken out for us, it makes quilting easier (and more enjoyable)! Quilt kits are a great option when looking to make a quilt. You know that all the fabric you need is in the kit (yay for no quilt math!), and you know that all the fabrics will work together wonderfully. That is why I was super excited when Cricut asked me to share a bit about their new Riley Blake ...

The Gypsy Quilter Gripper Review: Which Gripper is Right for You? from Quilter's Review

Unless you have a fabric cutting machine (like one of these), cutting fabric is one of the more challenging parts of quilting. I’ve heard countless tales of people slipping or misjudging with a rotary cutter and cutting off parts of their fingers. Grippers make it safer to cut fabric and, in some cases, also make […]
