Black batting is like the black sheep of the batting world, quite literally – it’s a little edgy, a bit rebellious, and a lot less popular than its white batting counterpart. It may not become your go-to batting, but just like your misfit cousin, it’s welcome in your sewing room….as long as it behaves.
The simple half square triangle. What a wonderful thing! You can make hundreds of different quilts using just a HST. Comprised of a square made from two equal right triangles, this block is one of the most used and most versatile quilt blocks in history.
Quiltettes, I bring you something very special and exciting today. Although I like to pretend that I know all there is to know about this quilty world of ours, the truth is there are some avenues in quilting that I know very little about.
Sometimes when I’m lying in bed trying to fall asleep, I reflect on life, love and quilting. There are other times when I find myself planning my amazing Oreo-based meals for the next day… but on cool fall nights, I get nostalgic about my sewing journey.
Quiltketeers, it's happening! After weeks of sewing quilt blocks we are finally on to something completely new and totally different. Welcome to Week 8 of the Modern Fans Quilt Sew-Along! The land of no more aimless block-making, but chain piecing!
This week you have one mission, should you choose to accept it: Chain piece all of your blocks into rows.
I learned to hand quilt a few years ago, and since then I've spent hundreds of hours stitching away. Those of you who enjoy these SQ tutorials have been asking me to "finally write that tutorial!"

Writing this tutorial loomed large in my head, because there's so much to say!
