Tutorial #2

How to Quilt Your Quilt by Ana Buzzalino

To Ana Buzzalino, the actual quilting is the most fulfilling part of making a quilt. Once the top is finished, pressed, and layered, the fun starts. She usually starts to design the quilting stitches in the early stages, as she starts to piece. Because she dislikes taking out stitches, she makes a lot of decisions before she even threads a needle. Learn Anna's tips for how to sew a quilt with this tutorial!

Sewing Techniques Article: Spiderweb Quilt

Tutorial #5

Spiderweb Quilt by Elizabeth Dackson

String quilts, while currently quite popular amongst modern quilters, began as utility quilts as early as the mid 1800s. String quilts were usually with foundation piecing on either muslin or paper; quilters commonly used newspaper for the foundation and whatever fabrics were available for the strings. Although the quilt design looks complex, when you see how the pattern breaks down, it all becomes clear!
