This is my first real sewing tutorial - which scares me a bit, because I've never actually taken a sewing class, so I don't know all the terminology. What I do know is that I've learned to sew lots of things by reading tutorials, so hopefully I can make this simple enough that even you beginners can feel confident making a bag. And yes, a bag with a zipper! It can be done, I promise.There are plenty of photos, so hopefully that will help.

100 Days – Week of Shapes – Tutorial « The Modern Quilt Guild Half Rectangle Triangle Tutorial (Updated May 2013) This tutorial is for Half Rectangle Triangles or HRT’s. This will add another tool to your quilting toolbox and hopefully you will be able to create some fun modern quilts using the HRT. When this tutorial was first posted it didn’t have instruction for “squaring up” these blocks and some of you were having a bit of trouble with it. This updated tutorial includes not only instructions for “squaring up” but, also it adds an extra step so that when you square up your HRT you will only have to trim it a little. This tutorial will result in 4.5 x 6.5″ final block size so that you can easily follow along to learn this technique but, ANY SIZE rectangle will work as long as you use the same size rectangles.

Nested Fabric Buckets Tutorial I didn’t invent the idea of the fabric basket/bucket–nothing like–but I am certainly more than happy to walk you through how I made the ones I’m using in my studio. After discovering–purely by accident–that a smaller (prototype) bucket fit neatly inside the larger size I settled on, it occurred to me as I prepared to put together a tutorial that a set of nested buckets would be pretty cool. So, here they are: a set of three nested fabric buckets to mix-and-match at will.

Perfectly cut hexagons will help you achieve the precision required for this method. *Sew consistent 1/4" seam allowances. A 1/4" foot or patchwork foot is helpful. I'm able to place my needle 1/4" in by lining up the edge of the fabric with the edge of the presser foot.
