Strip-pieced Diamond Quilt with NO Y-seams from Fat Quarters – Ultraviolet from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I know what you’re thinking … that’s a lot of little diamonds. But guess, what, we’re strip piecing this baby and you don’t have to cut a single tiny diamond!

For Ultraviolet, this month’s Stashin’ with Stephanie pattern inspired by this month’s Alison Glass Art Theory bundle, we are using offset strip piecing to create 60-degree pieced diamonds.

By placing the fabrics strategically from light to dark we are able to create a really cool effect when all the diamond blocks are assembled with NO Y-seams!

In this month’s tutorial I not only show ...

Strip Pieced Fat Quarter Quilt Pattern Fly Away from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

This month’s Stashin’ with Stephanie pattern is my favorite kind of pattern … one that looks complicated, but is pretty simple and fast once you break it down.

This month we are using offset strip piecing to create vertical strip pieced rows that look like they are forming a “V”. The result looks a little like a feather or books being opened, both of which work with the collection theme Bookish by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics.

I was an English major in college, and am constantly reading stories to my girls and listening to adult books on Audible ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.
