Don’t Call Me Betsy

Designer Elizabeth Dackson is the paper-piecing queen. Her use of color (especially solids) is so fun. And besides that, she’s a Craftsy teacher, so you know her tutorials are super helpful! Even if you’re not a person who likes paper-piecing, Elizabeth’s blog is so fun to look at. Her quilts range from bold and stunning to tiny and cute. And she does a great job mocking up her blocks in different colorways, so you can visualize the project with your own fabric!

A Stitch in Dye

We’re not going to lie — we’re constantly learning from and inspired by designer Malka Dubrawsky’s blog. Know for her fearless color and design choices, Malka provides amazing tutorials for those looking to expand their horizons of what fabric can do. For example, her most recent tutorials cover improvisational quilting, which she not only gives great tips for, but shows off her own work as inspiration.

The Quilt Engineer

Designer Latifah Saafir has a BS in mechanical engineering. She also is a quilter, so if you are a creative type with a science mind, you’ll appreciate her projects. Using many geometric shapes, her quilts have a modern feel but with a planned purpose in both design and color choices. She uses a lot of curves (but we promise, she makes it easy!).

Modern Handcraft

If you believe quilting is in the details, than you’ll love this blog! Blogger Nicole plays with scary materials for some sewers, such as snaps, pleather, hexagons, fusible and more (and you won’t be afraid, either, after reading her easy tutorials). Her style is bold, but totally livable! And her projects are great for those looking to try new techniques on smaller projects.
