Thank you so much for sharing!

Read on to find out about a fantastic GIVEAWAY!

Hello everyone!  Well, it’s finally finished… a 5 part free video series teaching you how to make a quilt from start to finish.  2 hours of content!  I have heard some amazing feedback about this series and I’m so glad people are finding it helpful!  This 5th video shows you how to bind your quilt using a straight grain method by hand (meaning you machine stitch it to the front and hand stitch the back).

What do you think of the quilt?

Melanie-thank you so much for all your amazing and informative tutorials on crocheting and quilting. You have given me the courage to try to make my first quilt ever. I have a question regarding fabrics. You recommend JoAnn Fabrics for lots tools etc but you don't seem to recommend them for fabrics. Have you ever used their Keepsake Calico cotton fabrics? The price is $9 per yard which is similar to local quilt shops. They carry Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons which you do recommend. Is there a difference in Kona Cottons from other quilt shops and JoAnns? I have tried researching this on the web and the reviews are mixed. Can you please give me your thoughts? Thanks again for everything!!! Roslyn

I have made many quilts in the past few years, yet every single time I sew on the binding I get confused whenI hit the corners. I have watched your quilting series and I finally feel like I have it embedded in my brain! Thank you so much for your great tutorial! Also, I love your YouTube channel, it has become my favorite! Keep up the great videos!

I'm a beginner sewer and have been inspired to get into quilting! So I would probably use the fabric for a small throw quilt as my first endeavor in the quilting world!

I would love to use that fabric to make some pillow covers. I got some free pillows with a new couch and I want to sew some new covers for them.

I love the colors! I would use the fabric either for placemate and/or reusable gift bags for my family and friends. I don't have the patience for a quilt, but little quilted projects are totally my thing!
