Fussy. Cut. We love to have our way with fabric, manipulating it to best showcase motifs and colors. Clever fussy cutting allows you to tell a story with your project.

A "pouf" is a marshmallow-like ottoman. They've been the rage in decorating for a few years now, bringing unexpected color, shape, texture, and fun into a room. We have a full-size, extra cushy square pouf project you can try for your own trendy decorating statement, but in the meantime, we miniaturized one as a clever pincushion. Ours uses

For our Featured section, we’ve been focusing on projects that can use smaller pieces from your fabric stash. This lumbar pillow uses skinny cuts to create pretty strip patchwork. Wavy line free-motion quilting finishes the front.

My grandmother, an immigrant from Lithuania, was an unbelievably talented seamstress. She did everything by hand, including free-hand embroidery, tatting, and crocheting. She never needed a pattern; you could just sketch something and she would create it. It was the sewing equivalent of the musician's 'hum a few bars.' Her vividly artistic creations seemed to
Holiday themed batik quilting cottons have become a very popular seasonal fabric. A number of manufacturers are now coming out with special collections each year. The motifs are a bit larger and the colors a bit bolder than what you might traditionally expect in a batik. It's a fun and festive look, and was the perfect
This lovely quilted runner finishes at just 16" wide x 30" long. It's almost more like a jumbo placemat, but a great size for smaller tables or breakfast bars, and perfect as the center décor on a larger table. The pretty patchwork center features four 'flying geese' blocks. If you're new to quilting, each of
This plush throw is framed with patchwork and pom poms. Even if you've never done any patchwork, you can make this beautiful blanket. The fun part is picking all the squares: 72 of them in this case. It's like coloring with fabric; you mix and match, combining colors and patterns from square to square. We
One easy way to use up odd-sized scraps of pretty fabric is to patchwork them together into an interesting pillow. This pretty pillow is an example of one made using a grid. The design is the same on both the front and back, however, we turned one grid panel 90º to create an interesting effect

Freshen up for spring with new additions to the pillowscape on your bed or sofa. We used Fat Quarters, selecting 13 coordinating prints to blend together with simple patchwork techniques into three different pillow shapes: one square, one rectangle, and one bolster.

When we're brainstorming on projects for our popular ScrapBusters series, we like to give you ideas for various sizes and shapes. That's the beauty of scraps: some are tall and narrow, some are short and squat, some are simply chunks and hunks of great color and design. They're all so pretty, and we saved them
Cuteness alert! These pretty little pouches are a super ScrapBusters project. Use them for pencils, make-up, and more…just zip and go. This is a great project to feature a decorative zipper. Coats makes several interesting options you can easily find in-store or online, such as the black and white polka dot option we used on
It's time to celebrate the colors of summer! These cheery pinwheel coasters with their "hot dots" will inject some bright pops of color into your seasonal dining. They'd be particularly fun for an outdoor celebration. The design is based on a classic S4H tutorial, but we've revised things a bit to utilize pre-cut 10" x
Round things that make me smile: baby thighs, ice scream scoops, rolling hills, tufted cushions. Creating undulating curves across a flat surface is a wonderful way to add dimensional interest to a plain cushion. For our tufting projects, we prefer the home décor tools from Dritz® to make the job easier and provide the most
I think a lot of people like to make stuff into which they can put other stuff. Every time we come up with a new storage solution, it gets rave reviews. Structured fabric baskets are at the top of the list. These "box-baskets" are put together in essentially the same manner as a number of our
As they say, sometimes the best things come in small packages. We love the itty-bitty adorableness of Mini Charm Squares. At just 2½” x 2½”, they are beautiful bite-size pieces that can be pieced together into colorful combinations. We used them to create double borders on a set of placemats. Each placemat uses 40 of
Color Block is a classic fashion trend and is just as fabulous for home décor. It has a cool 60s vibe in a bold, modern style, and no prints need apply. This is all about solid, saturated color, which makes it perfect for today's amazing large selection of solid quilting cottons. We worked with Michael
Our Blooming Florals Quilt is a throw size with an expanding half square triangle design that is echoed in the throw’s unique angled corners.
