Another great year is in this books when it comes to quilting. FaveQuilts loved sharing projects throughout the year, from both older but beloved to newer designs, as well as tips and tricks for quilters of all skill levels. This year, we decided to make a list of the Top 25 Quilting Blogs of 2018. These are the most popular design blogs featured on FaveQuilts this year.
Every year we compile a list of the top 100 patterns featured on the site and these bloggers all have at least one project in that list, but they also always offer the finest designs and advice for quilters, which makes them the best quilt blogs in the community.
Take a look at our picks for the top quilting blogs of 2018 and find out how you can keep up with the magnificent designers behind them. Be sure to keep an eye on these folks for some of the best and unique designs, ideas, and inspiration for quilts and sewing.
