Explore Fabrics Other Than Quilting Cotton
For many of us, quilting cotton is our go-to when we’re making projects. But there are so many fun types of fabrics in the market, and some of these specialty types of fabric are being made with higher quality and cuter materials than we may have seen in the past. Joanna, the editor of Quilts & More magazine, shares tips for sewing with five other types of fabrics -- we hope that it encourages you to try out something new without any fear!
Alison, the designer of Quilts & More magazine, chats with Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew. Allison is a talented pattern and fabric designer, whose patterns and tutorials are assessable for quilters of all skill levels. Allison shares about her pattern design process, how she chooses colors and prints from her stash when making a quilt, and her fabric designs for Windham Fabrics. She also shares about her newest product, the Diagonal Seam Tape, which is a must-have for anyone sewing a lot of triangle-squares or stitch-and-flip units!
