Jenny’s ‘Perfect Finishes’ Tutorial with Darlene Zimmerman

Here are some great techniques for finishing your quilt!

I like a challenge, but there are a few things that are just beyond my reach. Climbing Mount Everest? Not likely. Winning an Olympic gold medal? Nope. Walking out of my local quilt shop empty handed? Not on your life!  But a scalloped binding? That’s an easy one!

Jenny and her dear friend, Darlene Zimmerman, show off some great finishing techniques!

This week Jenny has Darlene Zimmerman in the studio to show us how to finish a quilt with super-simple waves and scallops. Click HERE to watch!

How to Cut a Fat Quarter!

How to Cut a Fat Quarter!

Quilter’s Confession: We love Fat Quarters! We love to collect them, pet them, admire them… but why is it so hard to cut into them?

Known by many as the “original precut,” the fat quarter is a staple in any fabric stash! It is so versatile and the perfect size for so many quick little projects!

So, what is a fat quarter, you might wonder? Well, it’s a quarter yard of fabric total, but not the way you would get a quarter yard of fabric cut off a bolt at your local quilt shop. It’s actually a half yard of fabric cut in half (on the fold). So, 18×22″. Some people prefer a fat quarter to a normal quarter yard cut because it allows you to see bigger prints better and is an easier size to work with. Or, if you’re like me, you can just collect them if you LOVE the fabric and can’t think of leaving the quilt shop without it, but don’t have a specific project in mind for it yet.
