Last week I received a lovely surprise in my mailbox. The kind folks at It’s Sew Emma/Fat Quarter Shop sent me a copy of Carrie Nelson’s new book, “Summer Moon,” which features a beautiful and unique sampler quilt. After spending some time looking at all of the pretty photos in the book, I zipped on over to my sewing room and made up one of the blocks, the Maple Star!

A Barn Star quilt and the promise of spring from Carried Away Quilting


You may remember that last week I was whining about the bitterly cold weather we are experiencing in Minnesota. Well, our low temp this morning marked -32 F with a “feels like” temperature of -54 F.  The local news channels are calling this the coldest day in decades. How am I fighting the polar vortex? I’ve stayed inside and finished up a little project I began last year, a Barn Star quilt featuring the Pepper & Flax collection by Corey Yoder.


This sweet quilt exudes springtime, doesn’t it? I’ve hung it in my dining room with just a ...

A Tumbler quilt for my sewing room from Carried Away Quilting


A few weeks ago I told you about a new project I was starting, a Tumbler quilt. I’m pleased to share the final result with you, a sweet little quilt for my sewing room. She’s a super cute complement to the Lone Star quilt I shared with you last spring.




While the Lone Star quilt hangs above my cutting table (a DIY project made by my husband and me), the new Tumbler quilt is displayed in an opposite corner of the room where I can see her from my sewing machine. I’ve used an old yard stick ...

Quilt retreat: A wonderful place to start a pumpkin quilt from Carried Away Quilting


This past weekend I attended an informal quilt retreat with long-time friends. We meet twice a year in the spring and fall to sew or scrapbook, eat, talk, laugh and enjoy each other’s company. I’ve been gathering with these lovely ladies for more than a decade, and it is truly a blessing. I’ve written about our Koronis Quilt Retreat before, if you’d like to read that post.  Today I wanted to pop in and show you some of the blocks I made at retreat!

Perky Posies charm pack pillow featuring Sunnyside Up from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! Do you remember the sweet dimensional pincushion I made recently using Corey Yoder’s upcoming collection, Sunnyside Up? Well, I had so much fun sewing with that cheery fabric that I whipped up another project . . . my Perky Posies pillow pattern using a combination of Sunnyside Up and Moda’s Cross Weave in black. Here she is:


Perky Posies is a charm pack friendly pattern that finishes at 18 1/2” square.  My pattern includes instructions for making an envelope back pillow, but this would also be a darling wall hanging or table topper.

Pinwheel pincushion featuring Sunnyside Up from Carried Away Quilting


I’m a big fan of Moda fabric designer Corey Yoder. I’ve made several projects with three of Corey’s recent collections (Sundrops, Flower Mill, and Pepper & Flax). So imagine my delight when Corey was kind enough to send me a scrap bag of sample fabric from her upcoming collection, Sunnyside Up! I picked through all of the yummy fabric morsels and selected these prints to make a dimensional pinwheel pincushion.


Besides her charming floral designs, Corey’s use of color always draws me in. She has a knack for selecting happy, cheerful hues that are warm and deep ...

Fun project alert: the jelly roll rug! from Carried Away Quilting


Not long ago I saw the cutest projects showing up on social media . . . jelly roll rugs! Well it didn’t take me long to get the itch to make one myself, so I snooped around a bit and discovered that my sponsor, Stitches N Giggles, had all the supplies I needed to get started. Ta-dah  . . . here is my first jelly roll rug!


While quilting is my passion (obsession), I have always been a girl that enjoyed any type of arts and crafts project, which is what this jelly roll rug project reminded me of.  It was so fun to take ...

Harmony: a finished quilt for Haley from Carried Away Quilting


You might say that my daughter Haley is spoiled. Spoiled with quilts that is. I’ve made her several over the years, two that she took to college to cozy up her dorm room, much to my delight. I love thinking of her away at school and comforted by quilts from Mom.

Well, last fall when I received a fat quarter bundle of Corey Yoder’s “Flower Mill” collection and Haley said she liked it, I promptly asked, “Would you like me to make you another quilt for college?”  (Of course she would! The more quilts the better for that ...

Gumdrops layer cake quilt featuring Flower Mill from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends!  I have another sweet Gumdrops quilt to share with you today. The maker is Vickie Zaleski, a talented and kind sewing friend I “met” through the wonders of the Instagram quilting community. Vickie and I share an affinity for the same fabric collections and pattern styles. I was tickled when she agreed to sew and test my newest layer cake pattern, Gumdrops.  Here is Vickie’s beautiful make:

Barn Star quilt featuring Pepper & Flax by Corey Yoder from Carried Away Quilting


I’ve been project hopping lately.  I’m not sure what’s wrong with me, but I don’t recall ever having so many projects in the hopper at the same time. Rather than analyzing my problem, I’ve decided to just go with it and enjoy myself. Sewing, after all, should bring us joy. And apparently, I’m finding joy in following my heart and sewing what calls me. The latest thing to call me . . . Corey Yoder’s Barn Star pattern and her delicious Pepper & Flax collection for Moda.


This simple yet striking pattern pays homage to the wonderful ...
