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

Big Star with NO Matching Points! Twinkle with NEW Kits! 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, but we thought Festive Fauna ...

New Kaffe! Pre-cuts, Yardage & Stephanie’s favorite prints from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

The latest Kaffe Fassett Collective fabric has arrived! We’ve got the new Neptune and Mars colorways in all the pre-cut variations.

Kaffe Fassett is the name everyone knows, but not everyone is aware that it is actually three men – Kaffe, Brandon Mably and Philip Jacobs – working together to make the designs and then Kaffe colors the designs to make them all work together.

With so many creators, the lines often contain 70 or more fabrics, which is A LOT to bring in. So I ordered 16 of my favorite prints from the line to bring in as yardage and ...

15 Things I Didn’t Know When I Started Quilting from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

When I started quilting in 2007, YouTube existed, but not in the capacity it does today. So I taught myself to quilt with a beginner quilting book, grocery store magazines and Love of Quilting on PBS.

All those are great, but not a great substitute for in-person learning or in-depth beginner quilting video courses like the one we created to cover all the basics that you just don’t know when you get started.

So I made A LOT of mistakes … like sewing a perfect 3/8 inch seam for a year-and-a-half because I didn’t know the standard presser ...
