Introducing: Quilts By Me!

Introducing: Quilts By Me!

If you’re anything like us here at MSQC, every time you make a quilt or do a sewing project, you want to share it with the world (and you should!!!).  You might post it on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, etc, but it doesn’t really have a home of its own… until now!  We are so excited to introduce you to Quiltsby.me!

QBM-Pinterestimage

Quilts By Me is a Show & Tell for your quilts and sewing projects! As a community of quilters, we all have a desire to create. We start with a few fabrics that we have carefully selected and we transform them into something that has a life and a story of its own! It’s an incredible transformation and once we’ve experienced it, we want to share it with our fellow quilters, who are creating and experiencing similar transformations.  I can’t even say how many times I’ve been moved or inspired by another quilter’s projects or stories.  With Quilts By Me, you’ll have a home for your creations as well as a place to become inspired by others!  We wanted to create a home for this amazing community and we hope you feel welcome here!

You can browse, ❤ your favorite projects created by other users, follow your friends or people whose work you enjoy, search by precut/style/project type… basically it’s amazing!  Once you play around a little bit with it, we know you’ll just love it!

Here’s what you need to know to get started.

Now you’re ready to browse or create a project!  You can share the quilt’s story, include which precuts you used, add a few tags (keywords like the color, pattern, etc), tell which fabric collection and tutorial you used, add photos, etc.

There are so many basic quilt blocks that become the building blocks of other new designs.  For example, the half square triangle can be put into thousands of different arrangements to create completely new quilt patterns.  Then add other basic blocks to it and you’ve got so many more new options!  That’s how today’s pattern was born.  Put together some half square triangle blocks and four patch blocks and you get the Four Patch Stars Quilt!  It’s beautiful and super simple to make!
