Fig Tree fat quarter bundles available from Carried Away Quilting


Are you looking to build your Fig Tree stash? Well, you’re in luck!  I have listed two new fat quarter bundles on my Etsy shop and they are as pretty as can be.

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 ...

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!



You all know I am a big fan of Corey Yoder’s ...

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 ...

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 ...

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!
  

Crossing Petals is a 20 1/2” square mini quilt featuring two pretty red florals and a spark of grass green. I also used Moda's Cross Weave in the sand color for the neutral ...
