Introducing Technique Tutorial Tuesday's

I really enjoyed going through the Beginner's Quilting Series with you all. If you missed any of those posts you can see the full list of them all here. This week I am starting a new series which I am really really excited about. I am calling it Technique Tutorial Tuesday's!

Technique Tutorial Tuesday's

New Blog Series at Pile O' Fabric

Here are the details of this new blog series…
  • When: Tentatively Tuesdays, Now I say tentatively, because life gets crazy and occasionally I may need to skip a Tuesday or two, but it will be my goal to try and provide a new one each week.
  • Where:
  • Who: Tutorials will most often be written by yours truly, but I do plan to have a few guests come and visit us here and there to offer up their wonderful skills with a Tutorial
  • Why: I have named it "technique" tutorial tuesday, because these tutorial's will be fairly short and concise usually only needing one week to introduce and will teach you a quilting method or technique. And well because TTT is cool!


I have a few tutorials already on my schedule and planned, but feel free to make suggestions as I am sure I will be needing them very soon :) I am always learning, so please please let me know if you ever see a mistake in a tutorial I have written, or if frankly the method I am using is just plain silly. Your feedback is so important to my growth!

Series Tutorials

As our series progresses I will keep this tutorial list updated so you can always refer back to past tutorials.

Share with your friends!

So who doesn't like a good tutorial? In fact basically 90% of what I have learned has been from fellow quilter's tutorials! So I'd say they are pretty important. I would love it if you would share about this series with your friends and spread the love. Here is a bloggy button if you would like :)
