Strip Pieced Fat Quarter Friendly Pattern with Half Square Triangles – Secret Treasure from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

This month’s fabric is so pretty. Bloom Bloom Butterfly from RJR Fabrics is a fabulous combination of watercolor-like images of butterflies and flowers with bold, vibrant colors.

Each fabric pushes the boundaries of the number of inks that can be used in traditional rotary screen-printed fabric, so each one offers a big punch of colors. When the bold hues are combined with the soft images, it just is a fabulous combination.

As always this pattern and every other one we have designed for the Stashin’ with Stephanie series is FREE for members. But you can also download it individually ...

Show Me Something {with Triangles} from Little Bunny Quilts

February's theme for Show Me Something with Sarah is triangles!


Here are the three projects I am adding to Sarah's link up:

Clue #7, #8 Progress and a Test Block {Frolic Mystery Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

The good thing about being behind on Frolic is that I can see how other people's quilts are coming together! I have been enjoying seeing all of the blocks people are putting together on Instagram and I am very jealous of those who have had the time/patience/ability to get their quilt tops finished!

The bad thing about being behind is that it seems like somewhat of an insurmountable task! I'm making some progress, most certainly. I've found that it is kind of hard to get to a stopping point with this project because I just ...

Clue #4, #7, #8 Progress {Frolic Mystery Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

After a long delay, I have finally finished Clue #4 for my Frolic mystery quilt! While the final reveal came out today, I am not as behind as I thought I might be.

To finish up Clue #4, I made all of the necessary sets of HSTs in navy, dark teal, and aqua.

I split up my aquas so that I used half of the different prints to make the aqua/navy HSTs and the other half of the prints to make the aqua/dark teal HSTs.


The left and center aquas are from my Pineapple Log Cabin quilt, the ...

Perfect HST BOM Block 9: Pinewood Star from Freshly Pieced

Okay, I’m just gonna come right out and say it: I’m not one of those people who looooovves fall. Honestly? I kind of hate the fall. I’m not a cold-weather gal, like at all (which admittedly is odd for somebody who lives in Wisconsin, but there you have it). So when autumn arrives, to me that just means I’m going to be freezing cold all the time for the next seven or eight months. Not really something to look forward to. So I’m just not a fan of autumn rolling in. Now you know. LOL ...

Tuesdays Tips -Quilting: HST Tip Tool from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Hi! Thought you might enjoy a quick tip when you need to join half square triangles (HST) the traditional way–by sewing two triangles together.

I’m working on a Christmas quilt, and the pattern calls for cutting squares in half (corner to corner) and sewing them together.

I usually make my HST by cutting squares a bit larger, stacking them right sides together, drawing a line from corner to corner, sewing 1/4″ on either side of the line, cutting between the lines, pressing and squaring them up to size. You know the drill.

Or (if I have the ...

The Organized Quilter from Repro Quilt Lover

Let me begin by saying this is an aspirational post. I am not an organized quilter or an organized anything, really. But, I need an organized system to accomplish what makes me happy; maybe you can relate.

I am going to assume if you are reading this blog you like to quilt. And, therefore, are probably a creative person — a “creative type.” Generally, we creative types are free spirits, which doesn’t translate well into focus, planning and organization. But, if I give in to the free spirit and let it run my days, those days are ruled by a ...
