Fat Quarter Shop's YouTube Channel

Hello Jolly Jabbers! Kimberly and Chelsey here! If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you have probably noticed that we are in Utah! We are currently up here filming for the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube channel!


Our YouTube channel is currently filled with designer interviews and plenty of tutorials, but we can't wait to add more. We are gathering great content from some quilting all-stars who will demonstrate their quilting tips and tricks for you all! The videos will start rolling in soon. We encourage you to subscribe so you won’t miss them!




Here's a little sneak peek at what we are up to this week. We visited the Riley Blake headquarters to film a video for their YouTube channel, popped over to Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet to film tutorials, and are finishing up with a trip to Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt to film! Aren't you excited to see what they all are up to? We are learning so much from these great ladies and can’t wait to come home and share!



Before we sign off, we have a pretty great giveaway. You know the quilt in the Fat Quarter Shop sewing room? The gorgeous backdrop for our YouTube videos? We have a kit to give away! One lucky reader will receive our very last Flower Girl Quilt Kit, which includes the Flower Girl Quilt Pattern by Thimble Blossoms and Marmalade Fabric to complete the quilt top and binding!


Since we love your feedback, here’s how to win! Comment with video topics you’d like us to cover in future videos. Want a step-by-step tutorial on how to do bias binding? How to match colors and prints? How to pick solids for your quilt? Go crazy and let us know!

Signing out from the Silver State!

I was so excited to see the pics you posted on IG! Lori Holt has posted on her blog about how she chooses and stores fabric. I'd love to hear about that and what others do as well. Tips and tricks for hand quilting, more precise piecing, etc.--that sort of thing would be great.

Would love to see something on hexagons as they are becoming popular.

Cloud 9 said...

Good video topics are endless. I'd like to see some on hand applique methods especially dealing with inner corners and points. I worry about the fabric fraying. Also piecing curved seams and picking the right colors and values.

NancyL said...

I'd like to learn about the pattern and fabric design process, from start to finish. Or, anything quilt related!!

Stacey Napier said...

A tutorial on set-in seams would be great! Thanks!

Lori said...

Scalloped borders and bias binding would be great video tutorials. I've read about how to fold your fabric for cutting bias binding, but I found it very confusing - I need to see it. I've watched a couple of your videos and I love them! Thank you.

Diane C said...

Would love a step by step tutorial on how to do bias binding. I always have trouble with the binding. Thanks for listening.

I would love to unrest and the color combination one can use from and with different printed fabrics along with solids also which is the basic color of solids that would mostly go with all or with most of printed designs.

annieB said...

Thanks for the chance to win gorgeous fabrics...Would like to see more about mixing fabric lines...colours

Shirley said...

Would love to know how to use all the rulers.

Fran said...

I would love to see a tutorial for sewing curves, drunkard path block style.

I would love to see a tutorial on understanding the uses of different types of needles in machine quilting and the best threads to use for different types of projects (piecing, quilting, free-motion, etc.) There are so many thread types and needles to pick from and it is a fairly mundane part of quilting, yet I think more important than we give it credit for. Thank you for the new tutorials you are gathering up in one place.

The "value" of different fabrics, how you work it out and how they work together. And curved piecing..as mine isn't always so curvy!

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

I'd love tutorials on curved piecing, y-seams and applique techniques. Video is such a great teaching tool!

Carla G said...

I'd love tutorials on different bindings and basting tips. :)

manybooks said...

Wow - I'm very excited about the upcoming videos! I would love to learn about bias binding, and also about options for how to finish the binding - machine and hand stitch techniques. I'm sure whatever topics you come up with will be great!

Melissa said...

I am a beginner quilter so I enjoy learning about how to choose colors and fabrics that make a quilt "pop". Right now I am most comfortable with using fabrics in a collection, but I would like to branch out!

fenna said...

would love a tutorial on picking fabrics!!!

Helen L said...

I'd love to see other people's sewing rooms, I'd love to see some great ideas for using batiks, and some EASY but great looking quilting ideas for FNQ on my home machine. That really holds me up: when I get the quilt top done it tends to sit for a LONG time before getting quilted!!

grannymaudsgirl said...

The things ladies in my sewing group often ask for help with are matching seams, overcoming the fear of triangle points, measuring quilts for borders, adding hanging sleeves, adjusting their quarter-inch foot so it really is a quarter inch and mitring the corners on binding.
Saying that, I am sure any and all the topics you choose will be great.

craftygoods said...

I just started my first paper piecing project and I really love it. It would be great to see something on ideas for creating your own paper templates.

Kimberly said...

I'd love to see how to choose fabric colors and prints. If they're not in a coorindated set I get overwhelmed.

EG said...

Curved piecing. And any tricks and tips that quilters just learn from each other!

lisa cox said...

Would love to have more about free motion and walking foot quilting as well as how to get perfect seams on an 8 pointed compass type star (the center where all 8 come together gets me every time!). Thanks for the giveaway.

Leigh Hamilton-Leigh said...

I need a bit of help with everything! I am especially keen to try a scallop border so would love a tutorial on working out the scallop and attaching the binding. Thanks!

Maxwells said...

I would love free motion quilting on home sewing machine. I can stipple or loops, but it'd be fun to learn flowers or some other quick way to quilt a quilt.

LeAnne said...

I would love to see a tutorial on scalloped borders and prairie points!
