Mini Charm Chocolate Big Sky Quilt from Sew Incredibly Crazy

I have really been 
enjoying piecing as of late.
Just the pure, fun, and
simplicity of sewing a straight line. 
It really has had a hold on
me for the last couple months.

When Fat Quarter Shop announced
that they would be holding a Quilt-A-Long
for a new pattern using mini charms, 
I was all in. A sweet little quilt
made from Moda Mini-Charms.
And with the release
of this new fabric,
I was in.


I absolutely love this fabric line.
It is Big Sky designed by Annie Brady
for Moda.
The colors and designs are
just my cup of ...

Window Garden in Tilda: A project update from Carried Away Quilting

Last February I began a Window Garden quilt for myself, using some much loved (and hoarded) Tilda fabric. Because this wasn’t a gift and I had no particular deadline, I worked on this top in between other projects, here and there, as time allowed. Now my top is done and headed off to the quilter! I'm so pleased with how it turned out.






Every time I brought out this project to cut or sew a little bit, I felt a renewed love for the fabric and the pattern. 



Window Garden is a layer cake pattern, but as I ...

Sew Sampler Box November 2017 Sneak Peek! from Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber

November Sneak Peek Header

November has arrived, and for us this month (and the fabric for November’s box) is a great reminder to “Give Thanks”.  We are THANKFUL for our Sew Sampler members, for the chance to share fabrics and notions we love with all of you.  In this clue, we’ve stripped out the color to make it a little more challenging, but die-hard fans may recognize it anyway.

Any guesses on what this collection might be?

Slowdown sewing: My orange peel pillow from Carried Away Quilting

I’m a "list making, meet the deadline, don’t be late" kind of gal.  I bet a lot of you are too. Sometimes I feel like my quilting projects get lost in a blur of schedules and timelines, and I lose a bit of the joy of sewing. Last February I was feeling that way, and so I set about to include some “slowdown sewing” in the mix. 

The result of my slowdown sewing plan: a pretty orange peel pillow, complete with big stitch hand quilting and some mismatched mother-of-pearl buttons. I made pokey progress over the past eight ...

Bella Skill Builder Quilt from Pieced Brain

Here is my finished Bella Skill Builder quilt, the cool result of the Sew Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting did a fantastic job choosing the perfect quilting motif for this project.

The fabrics are Bella Solids from Moda Fabrics and the colors were chosen online so I was not sure how they would turn out together. Bright and cheerful!

I pieced the backing and the binding using the same fabrics from the quilt top, so I have hardly any leftovers.

You can download the patterns for each block/month by clicking here and going ...
