Five Fabulous Quilting Fads – Right Now.

What are fellow quilters making? Why are these designs and fabrics so popular? Are these trends new or are traditional styles making a comeback?

Don’t worry, we’ve found the answers. We’ve taken a close look into the world of quilting to find out what’s trending. Here are are the top five:

1. Stars

From Memorial Day to Veterans Day, a star quilt can find itself taking center stage all throughout the year and when we aren’t stocked up on red, white, and blue; quilters find stars to be quite innovative. Five points or ten, stars can be adjusted to fit any style from traditional to modern. Thus, the trendy star takes the cake.

Shoot for the stars with this hot trend!

Shop star-themed patterns and let your work shine!
Find fabrics filled with stars big and small.
Pick up something sweet for yourself and fit for a quilter – because you’re a STAR!

2. Hexagons

Hexagons are as old as time – well, as old at 1770 from what we can find in written quilt history. Over the years, quilters have transformed the way we create hexagons and with English paper piecing, fussy cutting, and quilt-as-you-go projects, today’s hexagon quilts are full of unique possibilities.

We’ll put a hex on you with these amazing hexagon items, but don’t worry, this is one spell you won’t want to break:

Waves Quilt

MSQC New Tutorial on the Blog!
New quilting tutorial with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Company

Waves can be scary. In 1958, a landslide triggered a 1,700+ foot wave in Lituya Bay, Alaska. And here’s the wildest part: A little fishing boat was carried atop that wave, clear up the side of the forested mountains and back. But somehow, the boat, the fisherman, and his 8-year-old son came away completely unscathed!

So, yeah, waves can be super-dee-duper scary. But Jenny’s waves? They’re just fun! Click HERE to learn how to whip up gorgeous, wavy curves using our drunkard’s path template!
