Quilters love making quilts to share with family and friends to celebrate births, holidays, weddings and other landmark occasions, but do they make quilts for their pets? The answer is a resounding yes! In celebration of National Dog Appreciation Day tomorrow, here is the story of just such a quilt. Be sure to look at the entire post because we also gave you a look at what the dogs of AccuQuilt/TekBrands are up to!
Quilting has a rich history filled with community, tradition and surprise, some of which we've even discussed in past blog posts. For example, did you know that while Amish quilts are popular, the Amish people were actually slow to adopt the art of quilting?
We have an announcement to make: our GO! family is growing by three more dies! That's right, we are pleased to announce that after listening to our community of quilters, fabric artists and crafters, we've brought you new dies that answer popular demand and help create amazing gifts and memories.
Have you ever seen a quilt pattern and instantly fallen head over heels? It’s the type of love at first sight that has you immediately downloading instructions and mentally envisioning the right fabrics. The hang-up? Will it look as good in real life as it does in your head? Quilt designing software is expensive, often hard to use, and won’t guarantee you have what you need to complete it. That’s why we created GO! Quilt, a FREE web-based quilt customizer that makes planning quilt projects a breeze.
