Autumn decorating with my Fall Flight quilt from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! Fall has officially arrived in Minnesota. Not only has the calendar turned over to September, but we are already experiencing much cooler weather. That was my signal to start a bit of autumn decorating, which I wanted to share with you.


Last year when we moved into this home, I hung my Pumpkin Sky wall hanging in our dining room, and I really loved that look.  But this year I wanted to feature my new autumn quilt, Fall Flight. I decided to hang it over the antique door that leads into the room, and then decorate the ...

Furoshiki - Zero Waste from Quiltmanufaktur

In letzter Zeit mache ich mir immer mehr Gedanken, was ich zum Umwelt- und Klimaschutz beitragen kann. Geht es euch auch so? Was für eine Welt möchte ich meinen Kindern und Kindeskindern hinterlassen und was lebe ich ihnen vor, damit sie achtsamer mit unseren Ressourcen umgehen?

Das Angebot zur Kooperation mit Spoonflower zum Thema 'Furoshiki' kam mir daher mehr als gelegen! Es bot mir die Möglichkeit, gleich zwei Aspekte zum Thema 'Zero Waste' unter einen Hut zu bringen und euch das hier auf dem Blog zu zeigen.


Was ist Furoshiki?

"Ein Furoshiki (jap. 風呂敷) ist ein quadratisches Tuch, das vor ...

New pattern: Fall Flight from Carried Away Quilting


Autumn is my favorite season. Like many of you, I cherish signs of fall:  the spectacle of leaves turning vibrant shades of red, gold and orange; the glimpse of a harvest moon hanging low in the sky; the sight and sound of geese migrating south; and, of course, fields of pumpkin patches and roadside pumpkin stands. In Minnesota, we savor every last bit of autumn in preparation for the long winter that follows.

Every year as summer draws to a close, I feel a thrill when I pull out my autumn quilts for display and snuggling. Today I’m excited ...

A fat quarter quilt top finish from Carried Away Quilting


This week I finished a special quilt top, one made out of beautiful fat quarters I have gathered over the past year. It’s a mix of dusty, denim blues and soft pinky-reds. This quilt will be gifted to a lovely young lady. I’ve sent it off to the quilter to be finished, and I can’t wait for it to return!



The pattern is called Wayne & Gordie from the book Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites by Carrie Nelson. The quilt finished at 74” x 81” and was a snap to make with Carrie’s strip piecing method. For ...

New pattern: Lakeside Star, a fat quarter quilt from Carried Away Quilting


Last fall I wrote about how my new surroundings were inspiring my quilting decisions. We moved to a new home on an intimate lake encircled by peeling birch trees and majestic oaks, with native reeds along the shoreline, a lawn dotted with tiny acorns, and birds of every kind and color . . . it was both simple and wonderful. 

The indigo water and the reflection of the butterscotch-colored oak leaves on the lake’s surface really spoke to me. I wanted to create a quilt that reflected the beauty of those colors and also honored the simple but beautiful views. From that ...

Fun Facts from Bear Patch Quilting

One more milestone was recently accomplished in the closing of Bear Patch -- we had our final employee Christmas party!  I know, it's bittersweet, but I think it was possibly the most fun party we have had!  It was a potluck at the store after business hours.  Normally, we go out to eat, but since we had just had a fabulous dinner at our retirement party for Debbie and Laurel, we opted to just stay at the store and share our own specialities.  Wow!  Good food, too much to even fit on our cutting table buffet line!  Desserts had to ...

New pattern: Let's Play, a fat quarter friendly child's quilt from Carried Away Quilting


When I think back on my children’s early years, I remember that quilts were a big part of their daily lives. Quilts made for snuggling became fort quilts and backyard picnic quilts. I also remember how often a quilt became a play mat where Luke would line up his trucks, cars, tractors and action figures and let his imagination go to town. 


My newest quilt pattern, Let’s Play, was designed to feature inspiring juvenile fabrics and encourage play. It’s fat quarter friendly and finishes at 48” x 57”, the perfect size for a child’s quilt. From ...

Window Garden quilt finds a home from Carried Away Quilting


Many of you know that one of my favorite quilts, my Window Garden quilt sewn with Tilda fabric, was something of an odyssey. I purchased the fabric in September of 2016. I began working on the quilt in February of 2017. I finally finished it in the spring of 2018 while we were living at our transitional home. I’m happy to say that my Window Garden quilt has found her permanent home in our new permanent home! I couldn’t be happier with how this quilt makes me feel every time I walk into our master bedroom.


While I ...
