Backside Fabrics

I have made several larger quilts recently, and I have found the selecting of wide quilt backing fabrics at BackSide Fabrics to have just what I needed for each project. They also have great customer service and are quick to communicate should fabric be inadvertently out-of-stock, which I greatly appreciate!

Christine Scholz is the owner of BackSide Fabrics, which is an internet only, family run business. They specialize in wide quilt backing fabrics that are both beautiful and affordable, and Quilters Dream Batting.  BackSide Fabrics was born from Christine’s longarm machine quilting business, The Quilting Patch. The Quilting Patch opened for business in May of 2004 after the purchase of a Proto Stitch Wizard longarm quilting machine. Clients kept asking if I carried wide quilt backs, so the light bulb went on! After doing some research, I found that there was a need in the quilting community for an online store that specialized in a large selection of beautiful and affordable wide quilt backings. BackSide Fabrics opened for business in June 2007!

Night Quilter

Kitty @Night Quilter is an amazing quilter and paper piecing pattern designer. In her own words:

I’m a stay at home mom of two littles, wife, sewist of quilts and other beautiful things, knitter, gardener, yogi, and all in all lover of life. With two little kids, my only sewing time is after bedtime. Thus the night quilter was born.

Kitty has a fabulous eye for color and her photography of her work is stunning. You can view Kitty’s selection of paper piecing patterns in her Craftsy store and in the image below.

  10. Lixie says:

    211. At the moment my fave tool is the seam ripper 🙁 Actually I’ve been using my phone to audition fabrics for a quilt using the black and white mode – so handy for checking tonal variations.

    215. It’s not a tool, but my favorite recent discovery is fusible fleece. I like using it for wall hangings because it stays so flat. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  15. Pam S says:

    216. I like you on Facebook. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  20. 221. I love a good thimble. Along the way I became a collector.

  21. jenetamasson says:

    222. I love my thread holder thingy (I am SO technical!). I buy my thread on a cone (so much more cost effective) and the holder allows me to use it without messing up the tension as it feeds through my machine (seeing as the cone is too big to sit on the sewing machine’s thread holder).

  22. 223. I love my rotary cutter and rulers!

  24. Carrie Hare says:

    225. I am using an Eleanor Burns Flying geese ruler. It’s great!

  25. Carol says:

    226. Wonderclips – I always used the snap clips before, which are ok, but the Wonderclips are better.

  26. Peggy says:

    227. Hi – I am following you on Facebook.

  27. Peggy says:

    228. My newest favorite tool is a chopstick. I use it to move fabric through my machine. I use it to push out corners, etc.

  28. Ariel says:

    229. Thanks for a great giveaway! Would it be silly to say that a note card is my favorite quilting tool? Not any specific one but I love them because I can keep quilting notes on them and they’re so helpful in paper-piecing small bits 🙂

  29. Ariel says:

    230. Following on bloglovin’ @trekkiechick

  30. Susan Ikin says:

    231. Love my creative grids ruler – only have one but will get another – they don’t slip.

  32. Barbara says:

    233. My most used and most necessary tools are my cutting mat and rotary cutter. I’d love to have a stiletto, that’s next on my shopping list. Thanks for the chance!

  33. Barbara says:

    234. I’m a new follower on Bloglovin.

  34. JoanG says:

    235. What would quilting be without the rotary cutter!

  35. Claudia says:

    236. I learned to quilt with scissors so the rotary cutter is heaven.

  36. katie says:

    237. Love my rotary cutter!

  40. Jess says:

    241. I am rather old school – if I can’t get something to work right on the machine, I sew it by hand. And some things I’ve just never learned to do (like putting in an invisible zipper – which is the next step on my current project).

  41. Jess says:

    242. And I’m a bloglovin follower. 🙂

  42. Ruth Lutz says:

    243. My favorite tools are not unique, but I couldn’t live without them! My scissors and a sweet handmade pincushion, a gift from grandmother.

  43. Susan says:

    244. Love the ease of the rotary cutter and mat and I was just introduced to the process of English Paper Piecing.

  44. Susan says:

    245. Receiving your posts via email!

  45. Erin says:

    246. My favorite tool has to be my awesome rotary cutter. It’s one with a snap back button push retractable blade (Havel’s) and it’s awesome!

  46. Erin says:

    247. I follow on Bloglovin’!

  47. Nanna says:

    248. My favorite tool is a little 3.99 ironing board from Ikea. It’s the perfect size for quilt blocks and can easily be folded and put aside. Since I quilt on our kitchen table, it’s important to get everything out of the way before I start cooking or my beloved fabrics will be covered in tomato sauce.

  48. Nanna says:

    249. I’ve added your blog to my Inoreader feed.

  49. Bonnie says:

    250. My favorite quilting tool is the rotary cutter. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  50. 251. My favorite tool is this super sharp seam ripper I found in an Amish-area quilt shop. It is fabulous!
