Quilting Links - Some of my favorites

Quilt Blocks Pattern Library
Over 200 quilt blocks. Blocks in different sizes with patterns and sewing instructions.

Fabric Shop Hop
aka fabshophop
Visit the list of online quilt shops, find the hidden bunny and register to win prizes. (I won gift certificates twice.) Lots of online quilt shops to explore for fabric and quilting tools.

Quiltville & Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilts
The website can be confusing to navigate, but I always return to check Bonnie's yearly Mystery Quilt, a free online event held the end of November. I have constructed several of Bonnie's Mystery Quilts. You can sew the quilt as instructions are released each week, or Bonnie offers pdf files that you can download and save for later.

Scott Fortunoff on Facebook (Jaftex fabrics)
I always enjoy visiting Scott's Facebook page. He presents the different Jaftex fabric lines, does behind-the-scene videos, and often gives away fabric bundles.

Quilting on YouTube

The Questioning Quilter - Brita is a master of Disappearing Quilt Blocks. Her videos are short and pack a ton of info in an easy-to-understand format. If you subscribe to her free email newsletter, each issue contains a new Disappearing Block pattern. She includes step-by-step instructions with photos as well as different colorways for construction.

Sew Becca - Becca often does live streams. She works on a variety of quilting projects, including intricate paper-pieced quilts.

Power Tools with Thread
- Live each day (Monday through Friday) beginning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time. If you miss the live event, the program is recorded. Becky excels at quilting and machine embroidery. She is very knowledgeable.

Off Kilter Crafter Ian
- He is a quilter with a quirky sense of humor. Ian embraces the learning process while sewing. He's made bags to quilts, including challenge and mystery quilts.

The Fat Quarter Shop - Kimberly always works on interesting quilts. Most of the quilts use fat quarters, jelly rolls, charms or layer cakes. She also hosts quilt-along events.

Jelly Roll Club - As the name implies, the quilts feature jelly roll fabrics. Ivonne offers quilt-alongs and detailed sewing instruction.

Missouri Star Quilt Company - This quilt store offers a lot of YouTube tutorials. Some of my quilting friends have participated in the Missouri Star quilt retreats and had a great time.
