If you’re anything like me, then you’re never happier than when surfing the net for quilting tips and inspiration. The obvious sites like Instagram and Pinterest are usually the place to go. Today I’m making a list of some of my favorites, which are not only inspiring but a little bit more.
1. The Crafty Quilter
I don’t know what Season you’re reading this in, but when the nights start getting longer, and the mornings get a little frosty, my fingers start to itch for my quilting hobby.
This makes the “Christmas Once a Month” section of website extra special to me. In this gallery, Julie (The website creator – The Crafty Quilter) gives tutorials on how to get your home ready for the holidays. Check it out and show off your talents to the family, by decorating your home with your quilting
2. Quilting Gallery
This is one of my all time faves. It keeps you motivated by issuing fun little challenges, like “Sew-a-Thon: One Million Pillow Case Challenge.” It also offers classes for beginners and galleries of tutorials.
The one thing that makes this site extra special is the many events that are hosted on the site like “Miska’s Playground,” and the “Mini Quilt Mystery Club.” I would tell you exactly what it entails, but that would spoil the mystery, wouldn’t it? Check it out for yourself.
3. McCall’s Quilting
I have saved the best for last, and although it’s last on this list, it’s always my first stop when I’m looking for my quilting fix.
They’ve been around since 1993 and are still going strong. The passion that they feel for quilting is evident. They provide videos, digital products, guided tours, and even live events. Their
the mission is to spread the love and appreciation for quilts.

community list I’ve found.
