This free modern quilted table runner tutorial can be customized to fit any table size and any color scheme. It's a simple enough pattern that a beginner sewist can make it and is a fast enough finish that you can make multiple table runners for those inevitable spills and necessary spins through the washing machine.
Sustainability has become increasingly important and we've all been learning more about protecting the environment. As quilters, we all use different kinds of fibers sourced naturally from the earth—fabric made from cotton or flax, batting made of wool, silk, or bamboo, and tools made of wood.
My fellow adventurers, after only a few weeks you have already made it to the end of the Adventureland sew along! Yay! Phase 4 of our mission is sewing the large triangle blocks together and trimming the quilt top. I've seen some questions in the Suzy Quilts Patterns Facebook group about trimming so we will spend a lot of time talking about options and tips to help you feel confident when making those cuts.
Can you think of anything better than finishing a new quilt? I’ll wait. Got nothing? How about matching your brand new quilt with a stylish bandana! If you’ve just made an Adventureland quilt and aren’t quite sure what to do with those big, beautiful scraps, then let me show you how to make a patchwork bandana two different ways.
Knots. Tangles. Fraying. Breakage. UGH! These are the most frustrating things that can happen while hand sewing. What can you do to prevent them? Use thread conditioner! Most thread conditioners are made with all-natural beeswax, and while using it or not is an optional and personal choice, this handy little notion has many benefits.
Hey, Quiltketeers! Welcome back to Week 2 in the Adventureland quilt sew along. I hope you are feeling good about your fabric selections because this week we move on to Phase 2 of our mission—cutting. I've been told by many of you that cutting is your least favorite part in the quilt-making process.
