Summer Moon QAL: August blocks from Carried Away Quilting


I’m back today with another set of blocks for the Summer Moon Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop. The August block assignment includes three pretty blocks: Twin Star, Split Nine Patch, and Birds in the Air.


I thoroughly enjoyed making the Twin Star block. Fabric selection for this block was a snap. Once I decided to fussy cut a pink flower from Lella Boutique’s Nest collection, all that was left was to select two complementary blush prints for the star points. To add visual interest, I used the pale gray text print from Corey Yoder’s Strawberry Jam ...

Summer Moon QAL: July blocks from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I’m popping in today to share my July blocks for the Summer Moon Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop. We’re only three months into the quilt along, so there is plenty of time for you to join! The July assignment included Bear's Track, Buzzard Roost and Crown of Thorns blocks.


For the Bear’s Track block, I pulled four robin’s egg blue prints from Lella Boutique’s Nest collection to make the paws, and anchored them with a little green center square. Isn’t that about the prettiest shade of blue you have ...

A fat quarter quilt top finish from Carried Away Quilting


This week I finished a special quilt top, one made out of beautiful fat quarters I have gathered over the past year. It’s a mix of dusty, denim blues and soft pinky-reds. This quilt will be gifted to a lovely young lady. I’ve sent it off to the quilter to be finished, and I can’t wait for it to return!



The pattern is called Wayne & Gordie from the book Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites by Carrie Nelson. The quilt finished at 74” x 81” and was a snap to make with Carrie’s strip piecing method. For ...

Love of Books from Kelly Ann's Quilting

For as long as I can remember I've loved to read. An elderly neighbor would share her romance novels with me when I was a young teenager. She would hand me brown paper grocery bags full of books and I would hole up in my bedroom and read. My taste in books runs the gambit from police detective with the Lucas Davenport Prey series by John Sandford to any of the beach novels by Mary Kay Andrews.
