Next Up: a graduation quilt from Carried Away Quilting


I have a special quilt to share with you today, a gift for our niece Molly, who is graduating from high school. Molly is a sweet, smart, soft-spoken young lady who also has a great sense of humor. With her easy-going temperament and kind ways, I just know she will make a positive mark on the world.  It makes me happy to be sending a quilt along with her to college, to remind her how much she is loved.


When I asked Molly if there was a style or color combination she would like for her quilt, she wasn’t ...

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.

Crossing Petals kits featuring Ella & Ollie by Fig Tree & Company from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! Do you remember my Crossing Petals pattern? I released that mini quilt pattern in 2016. My original quilt (photos below) featured Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree & Company for Moda. Well, it just so happens that the new Fig Tree collection, Ella & Ollie, lends itself to recreating that lovely little quilt! And so, I thought a few kits might be in order!

Loves Notes Pillow: a free tutorial from Carried Away Quilting

Last weekend I found myself with an empty house and time on my hands! My husband went ice fishing. My two college kids (home on break) were busy with friends. The house was relatively clean and the laundry was done ~ all the ingredients for a day of sewing and movies! 

While I have two quilt tops in the works and other projects I need to prep and cut, I decided to just have some free-form sewing fun with my stash of Fig Tree & Co. reds and creams. I made this sweet little pillow I'm calling "Love Notes," and I ...

The Rest of the Retreat Story from Sew........This Is My Blog

I prepped all my projects ahead of time for retreat so I could just sit and sew and talk and not have to cut or think too hard or do any "dreaded math."  Each project was cut and put into a ziploc bag along with the pattern or instructions. The first thing I worked on was this "Cross Weave" pattern by Sweet & Simple Quilts from Martingale.




In case you haven't noticed by now, lately I've really been into using a complementary color in the sashing or border. I think it makes it more interesting.  (And different -- you must ...
