Take a look at this list of quiltmaking techniques. We’ve carefully selected things that are more of a technique (a way of piecing) rather than simply a skill. How many of them have you tried? Let us know in the comments and be sure to include any you think we’ve missed! We will add them to the list.

My Quilt Story
Our quilting journey includes all the different techniques we’ve tried and played with to create quilts. Be sure to include samples of techniques you’ve tried in blocks for your quilt.
Because this project will take components of different shapes and sizes, don’t be afraid to create patches showing off your vast range of techniques. We will worry about the shapes and sizes later when we get to the putting-together part of this adventure!
At least, show off your favorite quilt construction technique. Make a sample patch showing off what you’ve learned.

Between now and Fall Paducah in September, we invite you on a special creative adventure. Each week we will offer you ideas, techniques, blocks, and embellishments to help you tell your quilt story in stitches.
