Another Lakeside Star quilt! from Carried Away Quilting


My second Lakeside Star quilt is finished and ready to be gifted to a lovely bride and groom-to-be, our beautiful niece and her handsome fiancé! I hope this quilt will add the warm reminder of family love and support to their home. We live several states apart and don’t get to see them often. It’s nice to think of them snuggled together under this cozy quilt, watching a movie or sharing their day’s experiences.


The Lakeside Star pattern is a good choice for a quilt intended for a young couple.  It’s bold and graphic, which fits ...

New Pattern: 9-Patch Pivot, a fat quarter quilt from Carried Away Quilting


Do you love collecting fat quarters, but then struggle to find just the right pattern to actually use them? Well, I have just the answer . . . my newest pattern, 9-Patch Pivot!


9-Patch Pivot calls for just 21 fat quarters plus 1 1/4 yards of neutral, making fabric selection a snap! My sample features the upcoming Harvest Road collection by Lella Boutique for Moda, which will be available in October. This pretty quilt finishes at 66" x 77".


Friends, there are several things you will like about this pattern.  First, it really allows a fabric collection to shine. It’s scrappy ...

Lakeside Star: a crimson version from Carried Away Quilting


In February I introduced you to my new fat quarter pattern, Lakeside Star. This bold, dynamic quilt makes a statement with thoughtful color and print placement. My original quilt showcased a blue, butterscotch and taupe color combination. I recently completed another Lakeside Star top featuring crimson, brown and taupe prints. I’m doing my final pressing and then she’ll be off to the quilter!


This crimson version of Lakeside Star could be considered a winter or Christmas quilt, as some of the prints have a subtle seasonal motif.  But I think the overall effect is such that the quilt ...

A "lake" pillow for my Lakeside Star quilt from Carried Away Quilting


Do you ever catch yourself smiling, really smiling, when no one else is around? I’m a pretty happy person, so I think I’m often smiling on the inside, but I don’t think my face makes a smile too often when I’m all alone. It’s a bit like talking to yourself.  When you catch yourself doing it, you stop and think . . . and maybe giggle!

Well, I caught myself “smiling out loud” when this pillow arrived from Jennifer at Farm Fresh Stitches. I ordered this pillow to go with my Lakeside Star quilt, and it’s exactly ...

July OMG: Two Quilts Completed from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Again this month, if not for OMG I might not have accomplished any quilting. My goal in July was to finish two recently pieced tops. Between travel and house guests I didn’t have a lot of time for sewing but happily I finished both!

I’m in a sewing group that has met monthly for over fifteen years. Everyone in the group has a sizable stash and each month I provide a pattern for a quick and easy quilt that could help turn stash into quilts.

One of our recent projects was Pinata by Villa Rosa Designs. This pattern ...
