Finding the right quilting blogs can be hard. They can be hard to navigate, don't offer free quilt patterns, or are simply hard to track down. Though there are tons and tons of amazing quilters and designers out there blogging, we thought we'd put together a list of some of FaveQuilts' most prolific contributors. These designers create everything from baby quilt patterns to full bed quilt patterns and everything in between. Need keepsake quilts? Check. Need tabble runner patterns? Check. Need quilts for pre-cut fabrics? Check.
We couldn't possibly fit all our favorite designers in this list, so if this isn't enough to get you started, check out the full list of FaveQuilts designers!
