Welcome to our 2019 Once Upon A Story Row-A-Long. A big THANK YOU to Marian Pena and her hours of preparation time organizing this years event.

FREE MASK PATTERN: Mask Making 101 from Made By Marney

I have had requests to share a pattern for the masks I am donating. This pattern was originally found on the Craft Passion website. I give all the credit possible to this site for the original pattern. After making a bunch of the masks, I have tweeked the pattern to be a bit more fitted. Now I am super happy with the fit, and it is a very easy pattern to assemble.

I’ve already sewn over 150 face masks to give-away to friends and family. This is not a medical mask, but a mask to use for home, grocery ...

SUPER SIZE - The Math from Sew Fresh Quilts

How to change the size of any traditionally pieced quilt block.

Over the years, there have been a few occasions where a quilter has written to ask how to double the size of a block, as in the case of the Dog Block from the Dog Gone Cute design.

The Dog Gone Cute design was my second Quilt Along.

It had originally offered the Dog Block in 2 sizes.
SMALL BABY Dog Blocks finished at 9” x 6”.
MEDIUM MAMA Dog Blocks finished at 18” x 12”.

At the time of it's release back in 2015, mini mini quilting ...
