Small quilt sample sale from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I’m popping in to let you know about some new listings in my Etsy shop: small quilts you can purchase!  

One of the side effects of being a pattern designer is that I quickly become inundated with a stockpile of sample quilts. I do gift or donate many of my quilts, and naturally I keep some for use in my own house. But recently I decided I will occasionally sell some quilts as well.

What you’ll find on my Etsy shop are table runners, wall hangings and pillow covers that have all been pieced by ...

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 ...

Tis the season: Christmas quilts, runners and pillows! from Carried Away Quilting


We woke up to snow this morning! Granted it was just a dusting, and it has already melted. But let me tell you, those fluffy white flurries got me feeling all snuggled up inside. I was ready to pull out the holly and the ivy. It took every bit of restraint I had to leave the Christmas decorations in the storage room.

So instead, I thought I’d share some of my favorite holiday makes from the past couple of years. You can click on each project link for full details and more photos!

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 ...

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

Happy National Quilting Day! As promised, I've made up several custom kits with Carried Away Quilting patterns, all featuring the beautiful new collection by Fig Tree & Company, Ella & Ollie! 

Please note that I am not a fabric store, and I only purchase a small supply of fabric annually for use in my pattern design. So these kits are limited in number and once they are gone, they are gone. I appreciate your support and enthusiasm, but please remember that my blog sponsors (whose logos run along the left-hand side of my website) typically carry the same collections that I ...

Diamond Trail takes on a festive, winter look with Nordic Stitches from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends!  Two weeks ago I shared some photos of a lovely Norwegian collection I received from Fort Worth Fabric Studio:  Nordic Stitches by Wenche Wolff Hatling for Moda Fabrics.
