We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes on something very exciting—the first-ever Suzy Quilts Book Club! If you’re a Suzy Quilts fan, you know that Suzy’s patterns and tutorials are rooted in a love of quilt history. We’re thrilled to take that love a step further with our new book club and read one of the best quilt history books currently available as a community!
With so many children's books available these days, it can be hard to know the perfect book to get for your favorite quilting family. Sharing our love of quilts with younger generations is so important. And before you can sit a child in front of a sewing machine and teach them to quilt, you can read them books about quilts.
Good pressing takes time and practice, but it can make any quilt shine. That’s why tailor’s clappers are one of our favorite tools here at the Suzy Quilts HQ. We wanted to learn more about this beloved quilting tool, so this post is all about the science of getting flat seams using a tailor’s clapper!
Nesting seams can be wonderfully gratifying or painfully stressful depending on your level of accuracy. But what if I told you that using simple and inexpensive fork pins could bring you success and accuracy pretty much every time?
Well get excited, my quilty friends, because I'm saying exactly that!
Here at Suzy Quilts HQ, we are always happy to help new quilters learn skills, like how to read a quilt pattern. Making that first quilt can be intimidating. What does WOF mean? What’s the right side of the fabric? What are sub-cuts?
Using ice dyed fabrics can add a unique touch to your next quilt. Because of the way ice dyed fabrics are made, no two pieces are the same. And they can be used seamlessly in quilts, mixed with solids, neutrals, or prints.
