For those of you who don’t know me， my name is Suzy Williams of Suzy Quilts. I’ve been quilting for 17 years and currently have the pleasure of quilting for my full-time job! I design and write modern quilt patterns and have made it my mission to encourage others to learn how to quilt by writing lots of educational content at suzyquilts.com. About two years ago， I became a BERNINA Expert Ambassador (you may have seen my face on the B 570 QE campaign)， and have loved getting to know this wonderful BERNINA community.
Recently I published the Modern Fans quilt patternpersonalized wedding party gifts， which requires templates and sewing curved pieces. I know for newbie quilters and seasoned sewists alike， curves can be a bit daunting. In my endless effort to make sewing inclusive and fun， I have created a sew-along centered around this curve-o-licious quilt pattern—so that you can either learn a new skill， or join me in helping others discover the excitement and fun of sewing curves!custom christmas gifts
A sew-along is when a group of people get together virtually (a.k.a. online) and sew the same pattern over a set amount of time. The really exciting thing about a sew-along is that with a potentially tricky sewing pattern (like curves)， nobody has to muddle through alone. There will be lots of support via Instagram， Facebook and through the Suzy Quilts blog (click the sew-along drop down tab to always see the latest post).
There’；s no official sign-up and technically the only thing you have to do to participate is make a Modern Fans quilt. Your level of involvement is completely up to you. There are， however， some great ways to get involved and make this sew-along a lot of fun.
For more details on the Modern Fans Sew-Along weekly schedule， supplies and prizes， visit this blog post –； Modern Fans Quilt Sew-Along. And even if you can’t join us for a couple weeks， or if you happen to miss some weeks， that’s totally fine! Every week we start fresh with prizes and as long as you have a finished quilt top (it doesn’t need to be quilted)， you can still win that amazing grand prize sewing machine.
I hope to see you join in on the fun!

Hanna from Pearls and Scissors is here today with the prettiest t-shirt tutorial you ever did see. We’re just a little over the moon for this project (if you couldn’t tell), and love even more that she shows you how to draft your own pattern for it. Make a few in bright colors to step into spring early. Once you’ve sewn it up, head on over to Hanna’s Etsy Shop to accessorize with her handmade accessories.
