Charm Squared is one of our most popular patterns, but we are just now getting around to making a video on it. Quilters love it because you can make it with just two charm packs and some background yardage and it is super easy.

In this video I show you how to cut corners out of your strips so you can piece them in an offset way to maximize the use of your fabric. We also talk about how to sew the offset strip sets ...

Learn how to make Ripples, from my first book, “Simple Quilts for the Modern Home.”

Ripples is a great introduction to half square triangles. It is made entirely with two-at-a-time half square triangles.

But you all had LOTS of questions about fabric folds I didn’t cover in the video and most of them were on the same topics, so we made a second video to answer ...

How to quilt an overall swirl using Full Line Stencil and the Pounce Pad from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

When you start free motion quilting, you are told to just do an all over meander, keep everything curvy and don’t overlap your lines. It sounds easy to someone who has been quilting for a while. But to a true beginner, that can be very intimidating.

In today’s tutorial I show you how to use stencils as a guide to learn and master the overall swirl. Once you have got the muscle memory down and have practiced moving throughout the quilt creating an even quilting texture, you can ditch the stencil and start getting creative.

Supplies we used ...
