One of our member, Seri, recommended this free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop. Seri just made this quilt, and it was super cute! There is also a video to go with it, which I have shared for you below. Here is a link to their post:

We have already posted a tip about using a Hera Marker for your quilting designs. The advantages include no chalk or ink to remove, just creases made on the fabric. One thing I have struggled with is that sometimes it can be hard to see the marked lines, depending on your current lighting setup. This video gives a few good tips on that, as well as some tips on marking the lines themselves.

Improv piecing can be a lot of fun, with beautiful results. It is also a great creative way to use your scraps. I thought this video did a nice job of demonstrating one way to do it.
This video gives some good advice on setting up to do Walking Foot Quilting on your domestic machine. I thought it would be a good refresher for those of us who like using this type of quilting. I use it myself often for donation quilts and quick gifts like baby quilts.
By the way, I have seen some teachers instruct to only go one way with the walking foot quilting, and others don't care which direction they go. I personally have had success both ways, so choose whatever works best for you!
Below is the free download they offered so you don't have to chase it down. Of course, it is for personal use only.
Thank you to our Member Chris Nolen for pointing out this video. It is a real treat to get to see the modern quilts at Quiltcon this year, and the host of the video is lots of fun.
I love this easy pattern, especially because it is so simple with all half-square-triangles. Everything you need to know to make the quilt is in the video. Remember to handle bias edges gently and not stretch them out. Once they are secured with a seam, they will be easy to handle.
