A sunny Flower Tile quilt block from Carried Away Quilting


Last night I was feeling blue. I was missing my quilting buddies and reminiscing about the fun we have when we sew together . . . giggling, talking, snacking, creating. For a moment, I considered throwing myself on the couch and binge watching Netflix. But instead, I picked up my chin and sought refuge in the sewing room. I’m so glad I did, because by the end of the evening I had cheered myself considerably by making this happy block!


Do you remember my Flower Tile pattern? I released it in 2018 and it has always been a personal favorite of mine ...

The Kindness Project: Mystery quilt top is complete from Carried Away Quilting


This past weekend, I enjoyed time outdoors in the sunshine with my family. The weather was nice enough to complete some spring yard work and talk to the neighbors . . . from a safe social distance of course. I also found just enough time at the sewing machine to finish my quilt top for The Kindness Project.  


If you had time to read my earlier posts, you'll know that The Kindness Project was a mystery quilt sew-along hosted by Sweet Treasures Quilts. The goal was to sew a quilt to gift to someone affected by the COVID-19 outbreak or someone who ...

Kindness Project: a mystery quilt sew along with Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting


In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, many of us are turning to sewing as mental health therapy. If we are in a stay-home/stay-safe situation, it’s a great way to keep our minds and hands busy. It’s also a great time to sew service projects.

Terri Staats, shop owner of Sweet Treasures Quilts in Keizer, OR, has come up with a wonderful idea: The Kindness Project, a mystery quilt sew-along in which we all sew a lap quilt that we will gift to someone else! The recipient could be someone who has been hit hard by COVID-19 ...

Selecting fabrics for your spring sewing projects from Carried Away Quilting


Fabric selection ~ the quilter’s nemesis. Most of us feel some lack of confidence and unease when it comes to selecting fabric for our next quilting project. In fact, it can cause us to stop in our tracks. We purchase pretty new patterns and quilting books, and then they stockpile in our sewing rooms until we muster up some fabric-picking gumption. This is probably why so many of us love to purchase kits. Someone else has done the hard work for us!

When I am designing a new pattern, I try to make this process easier by doing two things ...

An early cold front has settled over my home state of Minnesota, and we even experienced some light snow this weekend. Rather than venture outside, I did a whole lot of sewing.
