Caring for Your Quilts – All People Quilt share on their website some helpful information on cleaning & storing your quilts.
Just how Big should I make my Quilt? Quiltmaker shares some valuable insights about this dilemma in a reprint of an article from “Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 3” which was released Summer 2011. At the end of the article you are able to download this information in a PDF.
QNNTV.com shares a free video, “Help With Design Rights: My Quilt or Yours?” in which Mary Fons gives some information about legality issues such as copyright, use of patterns/designs, etc.
APQS shares tips for solving Tension Issues. APQS is the maker of long arm quilting machines and therefore their point of view is not for sewing machines. But it has some good points.

The 24 Blocks Blog, a new online magazine for people who love to quilt, shares information regarding Quilt Care – How to Mend an Old Quilt
