Sweetly Scalloped for Christmas from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I have another Christmas quilt to share with you today. This one is for my mom, and it’s based on my Sweetly Scalloped pattern. If I weren’t concerned about landing on the naughty list, I’d be tempted to keep it for myself. I love how it turned out, but more importantly, I know my mom will love it too.


Mom recently moved into a pretty apartment for the winter months, where she’ll have access to fun activities and lots of friendly people. We had a great time selecting new furniture for her winter ...

Christmas bed runner welcomes overnight guests from Carried Away Quilting


My Christmas bed runner is finished! I did a “decorating test-run” to see how it will look in our guest room with a few other holiday items, and I think the end result is warm and inviting. Now I’m torn, though. Do I put the Christmas décor away until after Thanksgiving, or leave it out and watch my husband shake his head and roll his eyes?


As I mentioned in my post a few weeks ago, a bed runner is a great solution if you don’t have time to make a full quilt, but you want to dress ...

Christmas bed runner with Star Crossed Pines from Carried Away Quilting


Just the other day I was walking by our guest room and thought, “I wish I had a Christmas quilt to lay across the foot of the guest bed this winter.” You may be surprised to hear that I don’t have enough Christmas quilts for every bed and sofa in the house, but I don’t! Since Christmas is less than two months away (eeek!), I decided to make a bed runner instead. Here’s my first block.


Do you recognize the block? It’s from my Star Crossed Pines quilt pattern!  Doesn’t it have a cozy, homespun ...

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving from Clever Chameleon

Happy Thanksgiving table top quilt with turkey at Clever Chameleon

Wishing all my Canadian friends a wonderful holiday for the coming weekend

Australians as a whole don’t do Thanksgiving, although many traditional churches do have a low-key harvest thanksgiving service in our late summer or early autumn. But I like thankfulness, and since it’s likely impossible to indulge in too much thankfulness, the Chameleon and I are getting on the Canadian bandwagon today. Happy Thanksgiving for the weekend and Monday, Canadian friends and everyone!

It wasn’t until last year that I became aware that Canada has its own Thanksgiving Day, separate from the American occasion. And then ...

Modern Fat Quarter Friendly Stash Busting Quilt Pattern Ribbon Candy from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

With 24 fat quarters, our new fat quarter friendly pattern Ribbon Candy (part of the Stashin’ with Stephanie series) will definitely make a dent in your stash!

This quilt has a little bit of everything. We are strip piecing, sewing at an angle to create a pattern that looks complicated without too much fuss and no templates.

For this quilt I used Alison Glass Holiday, and I love how it kind of looks like candy cane stripes twisting around. But you could certainly use anything in your stash to make this happen. Just make sure you pick a fabulous neutral ...
