Here are a few websites that we enjoy.
First up is Cluck Cluck Sew. She’s got all the tutorials, fabric lines, and baby pictures you could want in a site!
Then I’ll head over to Lily’s Quilts. She’s got the fresh, modern thing going on. Again, find the tutorials. Check out that chubby dresden tute. It’s adorbs!
Over at Freshly Pieced, you can find sewing and quilting ideas. She’s even got a tutorial for a Lego playmat that has a drawstring. You can just pull a string and put that mess away! You know that’s great for a toddler gift.
Fresh Lemons has just about everything. I seriously don’t know how this lady sleeps. She’s got tutorials to keep you busy all year.
We all know who Moda is, right? Yea! The fabric manufacturer! Did you know they have a blog with free patterns? It’s all at the Moda Bake Shop. Of course, they show you the ideas using their pre-cuts but there’s nothing saying you can’t use your own yardage or scraps.
If you need (NEED!) a baby or toddler gift and you would like it to be home made… head over to MADE. If you can’t find a skirtfor your grand baby then you aren’t looking in the right place!
For those of us who are visual learners, The Missouri Quilt Co. has a website called Quilting Tutorials. Jenny is great. She’s a very good teacher. She will mention that you can buy all the bits in their store but, as usual, you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to. I promise she will never know (or care) if you don’t!
A quilt blog I would add if only for the name is Stitchery Dickory Dock! Luckily, she’s more than just an awesome name. She did the Craftsy Block of the Month last year (It’s free, by the way!) and she’s also got some great tutorials on her blog.
Last, but certainly not least, is the blog of Bonnie Hunter. I’m sure you have heard of her because she’s a pretty masterful scrap quilter. She has at least 30 free patterns up at Quiltville!
