National Quilting Day Ideas! from Carol Lyles Shaw

National Quilting Day 2020 — Ways to Stay Connected! Most (maybe all of us) are practicing social distancing so meeting with other quilters face to face will be limited for the next few weeks.  But, that doesn’t have to mean that we need to completely isolate ourselves.  We can still connect and show each other [ ...Continue Reading ]

Charity Quilts from Leftover Blocks from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Every year I like to make little quilts or knit tiny hats for Mikayla’s Grace. So when they put out an urgent request for specific needs, I signed up to fill the need for 10 medium size baby quilts to support families with small infants in the NICU (Neonatal ICU).

I had some leftover quilt blocks that worked perfectly for the center of each quilt. The “Fantasy Folk Art” fabrics by Contempo (Bernatex) are so beautiful, and I had enough coordinating fabric for the extra borders..

It’s a snap to figure out the math using EQ8 (Electric Quilt ...

Maple Leaf Blocks from Jan's Quilts



These are for my Modern Quilt Guilds' Block of the Month Charity Quilt project.  Each month a different member chooses a block to present.  Once enough blocks are collected, we assemble them into large lap-size quilts to donate to a local charity. 

This month's tutorial can be found here.  Rather than use yardage, I had this great Charm Pack that I thought would work perfectly.  I had to improvise a bit, but I think the Maple Leaves turned out great.

May your bobbins always be full,

Giving Love Qujilt Top from Jan's Quilts


My quilt guild, the Temecula Vally Modern Quilt Guild, makes quilts to give to Thomas House.  We're a small guild and we manage to give 12 quilts a year to them.  This quilt top was made from donated Block of the Months.  The blocks are 12.5" and the HSTs are the same size; those are the larges HSTs I've ever made!  I'll turn this quilt top into the Charity Quilt Vice President at our next meeting, then someone will quilt it and someone will bind it, maybe me!

I came up with the quilt design, if ...

Bloom-Topia quilt along with Fat Quarter Shop: Will you join me? from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I’m excited and honored to share that I will be one of the bloggers sewing along with Fat Quarter Shop for their 2020 charity quilt along, Bloom-Topia! This wonderful program benefits Make-A-Wish of Central & South Texas. This is the 7th year that Fat Quarter Shop has hosted a charity quilt along.


This quilt along is special in that it binds us (pun intended) together in an event that makes a positive difference in the lives of children. We quilters will be called upon to offer participation donations, which will in turn be matched by Fat Quarter ...

Fast, So Fast! from Jan's Quilts


These were the "fastest blocks in the West"! So fast. They are the November #bom for the #TVMQG charity quilt project. The name of this block is Whirlwind. I can see the possibility of an entire quilt made from these blocks. It'd be finished in a couple of days!



What are you working on?

May your bobbins always be full,
