As you know I'm a quilting novice... The local quilting clubs/groups have waiting lists and I only know one person who quilts, so online tutorials are a godsend for me.
So far thanks to tutorials I have my black and white quilt in progress (based on Moda Bake Shop Sugar Pop n Change), my Fruitilicious Baby quilt in progress (based on Colorbrick), some storage cubes made and a mug rug... and I'm still eager for more!
So I thought I would share with you the tutorial I'm either currently working on, or planning to work on!
Over at Stash Revolution, Sarah has posted a whole host of hot pad and pot holder tutorial links!
This one from Oh, Fransson really caught my eye as it has a dual funtionality, with its multiple layers it works as a hot pad and with the cut out for your hand it functions as an oven mitt too. I've also been on the Flikr pool and been even more inspired by some of the fabric choices everyone has used.
The tutorial can be found here.
Whether this becomes a regular Tuesday post I don't know but for the moment I'm going to be learning the basics of quilting through these smaller projects so hopefully I'll be able to complete them relatively quickly!
On a seperate note, I brought an EZ Quilting Easy Dresden today and will be looking for a good tutorial for that too! If you know of any please feel free to comment and let me know.
Well I am starting a dresden Quilt-a-Long tomorrow if you fancy jumping in with both feet! It's being sponsored by Mandy and she's doing a deal on fabrics for it - one layer cake and three yards of solid for £40 which is what you need for the QAL - no pressure but if you fancy quilting along, it's a fun way to meet new people and I will be getting people to share their blog links on the blog and on flickr so hopefully there will be some blog hopping going on.

I just saw this for the Dresden ruler. I'm going to give it a try. http://stashmanicure.blogspot.com/2011/03/beyond-dresden-plate.html
