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.

Nancy Zieman

Nancy has been  the go-to gal for learning new techniques and simplified quilting processes for a long time. And her blog is no exception! Full of clear tutorials, easy projects, and reviews of must-try tools, her blog is perfect for beginners and advanced quilters alike. Plus, her round-ups (like the Top 5 Sewing Projects blog above) make it super easy to find her top tutorials.

Inspired by Antique Quilts

Designer Kathie Holland’s blog is one where you’ll become a better quilter just by looking at pictures of her quilts. She has a beautifully scrappy style, which makes for perfect lessons on color, contrast, and light. The best part is she’s always sewing something new and blogs daily about her projects!

The Sewing Loft

Blog owner Heather should be your go-to gal for when you have a sewing question that you’re too afraid to ask. Her tutorials on sewing machine feet, binding and so much more take the guesswork out of the topics every sewer should know! And one of our personal faves is How To Hang A Mini Quilt (you think you know, but you don’t!). She’s never short on ideas, and her daily blogs are constantly creative, inspiring, and super helpful!
