Welcome back, Thrivers! I hope you had a great week full of pretty fabric. Last week in the sew along we assembled our 9 favorite fat quarters as well as any extra sewing supplies. For a rundown on Week 1, as well as the full sew along schedule, check out the Week 1 blog post here.
This is the second design in a series of four quilts that represent the four seasons in a year, as well as seasons in our lives.
We love quilt history here at SQ, and we especially love anything and everything that has to do with our best friend, the sewing machine. In this post I share with you how the invention of the sewing machine changed sewing, and the whole world, forever.
This DIY quilted checkerboard is a perfect project for beginner sewers and children learning to sew. You only need small scraps of fabric and the most basic tools. Let's get started!
I'm so excited about this sewing tutorial because have fond memories of playing checkers against my dad – first me getting mad and crying because he beat me, and then after the next game, getting mad and crying because he let me win.
One thing I love about quilting is that no matter how long you have been sewing, there's always a new technique or different approach to learn. You may be thinking that you have pressed thousands of seams over the course of your quilting career so you don't need a tutorial on how to press seams in a quilt.
