Learn to sew perfect triangles with our Triangle Masterclass! NEW KITS … from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Last fall we launched our Triangle Masterclass, a nine part video series that covers everything you need to know to improve your triangle piecing.

We have dedicated videos for sewing half square triangles, quarter square triangles or hourglass units, double pinwheels, four-at-a-time no waste flying geese.

Plus there are videos on how I sew the quilt block together so I don’t cut off any points, and my two-pinning method to get perfect points every time. Wrap it up by watching how I used rulerwork on my longarm to quilt triangles into the design as well.

The course is free ...

NEW Shell Rummel fabric and quilt kit! This one’s GORGEOUS … from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

It’s no secret that I love everything Shell Rummel creates.

We have collaborated many times and I’ve made a quilt out of every one of her collections except one that came out early in the pandemic when I trying to figure out how to homeschool a kindergartener, care for a newborn and run a business.

My life hasn’t slowed down yet, but that collection is waiting for me when it does.

Shell’s latest line with FreeSpirit Natural Affinity is absolutely gorgeous, filled with beautiful serene scenes from the seashore. The colors are calming and an absolute ...

Loopy Meander & Daisy Free Motion Quilting Combo – Quilting Blooming Star from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I’m going to be totally honest, this isn’t my favorite quilting ever. But I think it’s important to show you when my sewing projects don’t go as planned so you know you’re not alone when it happens to you too.

I wanted to do a swirl design in each and every diamond to help echo the design in the quilting. I’ve used similar approaches in other diamond quilts and the results are always stunning.

But my entire family has COVID, and I had one day when we cleared out Quilt Addicts Anonymous so I ...

Straight line quilting on the longarm + Why I HATE channel locks! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Today I’m showing you how I used straight line quilting on the longarm to quilt Subway our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie quilt design.

If you don’t have a longarm, don’t worry. You can absolutely quilt straight lines on your home sewing machine using a walking foot. I think it was the perfect choice for this quilt because it is utilitarian, but also chic and modern, just like ...

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 ...
