We have Rachel Thomeczek, of Wren Collective, here to share with us a wonderful tutorial on glue basting seams. Rachel has been quilting for a couple years, and during that time she has mastered the art of perfectly nested seams.
You did it! You made it to the end of the Mod Mountains sew along. Eight whole weeks of cutting, sewing and pressing triangles and now in just a few more days you will have a finished quilt top. Give yourself a round of applause!!
The trees are green, the birds are singing and I’m almost positive that it’s not going to snow again here in Chicago – it’s finally summer in the midwest! Do you know what that means? It’s time to bring out the bamboo batting!
Mod Mountaineers, our blocks are sewn. Our mountains have been climbed! All that's left to do is enjoy the view from the top and begin our decent. This is when you get to lay everything out, step back and give yourself a rewarding pat on the back.
Friends, I’m a bag person. And a purse person. I mean, who isn’t. How could we ever live through life without a fantastic purse? Carry things in our hands? We only have two of those! And they’re so small! No. Purses and bags.
Heeeeey-oh! How are we doin', Mod Mountaineers? You still with me? The next two weeks get reeeeally exciting, so I want to make sure that your bags are packed and you're geared up for a sewing adventure!
If you're brand new to this Mod Mountains sew along, let me catch you up on a few things before beginning this week's climb.
Fellow sewists, we have gathered here today because of our mutual love for sewing quilts. But believe it or not quilting (though it’s definitely my personal fav) is just the tip of the iceberg in the beautiful world of sewing. Our next blog series, Meet the Maker, is going to feature other creatives in the sewing space, showcasing all of the incredible things that needle and thread can do!

The Triangle Jitters quilt pattern is one of the most popular patterns in the SQ library. Using just the simple half square triangle, it creates a dynamic, modern design while still remaining beginner-friendly. The fabric requirements in the pattern are designed for using yardage, however you can make it with scraps, or in this case, make a Triangle Jitters quilt with 8 fat quarters* and a background fabric!
