Winner: Hallo-Harvest layer cake from Carried Away Quilting

It’s time to announce the winner of the Hallo-Harvest layer cake by Basic Grey for Moda. But first, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for leaving a comment. I enjoyed reading them more than you know. Sometimes in this crazy, stressful, busy world, it’s the kind words of strangers that lift us up. Your enthusiasm for my patterns, thoughtfulness and willingness to share a slice from your own life were day brighteners for me.  You have no idea how badly I wish I could ship a layer cake to everyone ...

New pattern: Welcome Home Wreath from Carried Away Quilting

In Bloom Christmas Style from Trends and Traditions

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know I make a new quilted Christmas item each year.  This year, it’s already finished because I worked on this fall.  That doesn’t usually happen – last year’s project still isn’t done! (but I just pieced the backing and the top is done.)  I will hopefully be sharing that one soon.


But, back to this year’s project – It’s this runner, from my Joyful Stitcher book.


Aren’t these prints fun?  I love Basic Grey’s Christmas lines and I probably have made ...

New charm pack pattern: Starry Way from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends! Today I’m pleased to share a new table runner pattern with you, Starry Way! This charm pack friendly pattern features dancing stars making their way among mini log cabins, both of which are so easy to construct.

Starry Way would sew up beautifully with just about any fabric collection you love! I selected a charm pack of Juniper Berry by Basic Grey for Moda to give my Starry Way runner a festive holiday feel. At 40” x 20”, this is a terrific size for your table or buffet.

While I absolutely love this Juniper Berry collection ...
