Diamond Trail table runner kit featuring Fig Tree favorites from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I’m excited to show you my latest Diamond Trail table runner top, featuring some of my all-time favorite red, green and black prints from Fig Tree & Company. I had enough fabric in store to create a limited number of KITS, so that you can make one too!



This top features fabrics from five Fig Tree collections: Farmhouse II, Christmas Figs, Coney Island, Ella & Ollie and Chestnut Street. It has a decidedly country feel, but I like how the black adds a touch of sophistication. I can’t wait to quilt this piece. I’m planning to ...

Candy Twist Quilt and Bonus Table Runner from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Candy Twist Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

One hundred years ago, Halloween was more about tricks than treats. Instead of trekking door to door to collect candy, kids spent the evening pulling pranks on their neighbors. A little doorbell ditching here, a little property damage there. Frankly, I say bring on the sweets!

Candy Twist Quilt Tutorial with Jenny of Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Everything is more fun with candy – even quilts! This week Jenny is stitching up a delicious Candy Twist Quilt.

Sundance Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Sundance Quilt

Fun fact: The cupcake was originally named for its super-simple recipe: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, and 4 eggs. No pinch. No dash. No hand-crafted vanilla or truffles foraged under a full moon. Just 6 cups & a handful of eggs! Easy peasy!

Sundance Quilt

This week Jenny uses Moda’s Cupcake Mix® Recipe 4 to whip up an easy batch of tiny blocks just as sweet as real cupcakes. Click HERE to learn how to make this pretty quilt!

Raindrops - Quiltmanufaktur - Andrea Kollath - 70 x 85 cm


Auf besonderen Wunsch hier eine kleine Anleitung für meinen Raindrops Quilt, der derzeit in der kleinen Nische in der Quiltmanufaktur hängt!

Vor einiger Zeit hatte mir Philipp von My Quiltshop einen tollen Ruler für das Zuschneiden des Drunkards Path Block geschenkt. Ich wollte ihn eigentlich sofort ausprobieren, aber dann kam, wie immer das Leben dazwischen.....

My Timeless Day: custom kits for Diamond Trail and Summer Breeze! from Carried Away Quilting


As a pattern designer, it is always a thrill to see my patterns sewn up by other quilters. It’s exciting to see one of my creations come to life with a different color palette, fabric style or theme. It’s also quite a thrill when quilt shop owners kit my patterns and offer a custom option to their customers.

One of my sponsor shops, My Timeless Day of Alcester, SD, has recently kitted two of my new patterns: Diamond Trail and Summer Breeze.  Shop owner Allison has a great eye for putting colors together, and I just love what ...

Quilting brings the cheer when the weather is something to fear! from Carried Away Quilting


The calendar might say April 7, but in central Minnesota we are still experiencing winter. Mother Nature hit us with nine new inches of snow last weekend, and the weather man is predicting more snow this weekend. Ugh!  Quilt making and decorating with quilts is my refuge as I wait for sunshine, green grass, flowers and warm breezes.

Right now our guest bedroom is the most sunny room in the house. It literally gets the best afternoon light, but I've also added sunshine to the room with my quilts. Above the daybed I've hung my "Flower Tile" quilt ...

New pattern: Flower Tile, a charm pack quilt from Carried Away Quilting

Since ringing in the new year, I've introduced you to four new Carried Away Quilting patterns, and today we have number five: Flower Tile. This one might be my favorite.



Flower Tile is inspired by the delicate symmetry found on beautiful painted floor tiles in historic homes. Thin sashing mimics crisp grout lines, while a repeated pattern of softly colored prints creates a lovely cohesive effect. It’s the perfect pattern to show off your favorite charm pack


This quilt finishes at 44 1/2" square and lends itself to many different fabric styles and colorways. Sew up Flower ...
