String Quilt

Check out Rob's tutorial on the String Quilt

Man Sewing creates a sweet new version of a String Quilt!

String quilting is a quick & easy type of foundation piecing. Strips are stitched to a fabric base, and you can get a little crazy with angles and skinny pieces because the foundation keeps everything nice and pucker-free.
Rob Appell makes this neat String Quilt!

This week’s quilt was inspired by the incredible fabric designs of Kaffe Fassett, so of course it’s all about color and movement. I chose to create half square triangles by sewing my strips diagonally on one half of each foundational block. How cool is that? Click HERE to watch the tutorial

Learn to make a NEW variation of the Disappearing Pinwheel with Rob Appell of Man Sewing

I have to admit, this project did not originate in my own imagination. I actually got the idea from Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Piecing isn’t usually my thing; I’m more of an applique guy, but these “disappearing” blocks set my creative juices on fire. This quilt is easy, intricate, and just plain awesome.

Purl & Loop Loom

I quilt. I sew. I knit and dye and embroider. And today? Today I weave! I’m a lover of fiber art in all its forms, and I’m always on the lookout for cool materials and interesting textures and colors. This week I was inspired by Missouri Star’s new collection of yarn and an awesome little Purl & Loop loom, and right away I knew I had to put together a basic weaving tutorial.

In today’s video, I’ll run you through the basics of loom weaving including fringe vs. no fringe, thin vs. thick yarn, and even a few time-saving tips. Click HERE to watch the free tutorial!
