The Carkai Quilt from Georgia Girl Quilts

Last week I shared this quilt, a gift for the newest addition to our family. This week, I'm sharing the quilt I made for his big brother, H.


H's room has pops of blue, green and orange - some of the exact shades that are in the Carkai collection.


Several months ago, I purchased a jelly roll of Carkai by Carolyn Friedlander because it was on sale. I'm trying very hard not to do that anymore - I have a shelf full of impulse bought fabric that is doing nothing but collecting dust. This purchase, however, turned out to ...

DWM: Granny Squares from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Recently, I’ve seen many pictures and tutorial of granny square quilts.  It seemed like a good project for a jelly roll so I started on of my own.  Ten years ago I never would have thought I would use solid fabrics or white backgrounds in my quilts.  In the past two or three years I’ve used several bolts of white or near white solid fabric.  I’m a little tired of that look, so I decided to change it up a bit and used a Moda Bella solid called Peacock for the background.

I think it works particularly ...

Your Next African Quilt…As Easy as A-B-C! from Cultured Expressions

StripBundleFallFinally, the African Brilliance Collection is here! And now, it’s as easy as A-B-C to create your own African fabric quilt.  Play around with the 50 strips (2-1/2″ wide x 44″ long) in this bundle to create something special.

You’ll find lots of jelly roll quilt inspiration online (start here) –at least until I get my own samples done  ; )  Incidentally, I’m thinking of weaving the strips against a lightweight fusible batting, or pulling out some earth tones and turqs for quick quilt-as-you-go pillows…or maybe a Rail Fence spectrum quilt?  More ideas than time, can you ...

Gradient Burst Quilt from Mommy's Nap Time


Gradient Burst 53” x 59”
Quilt Now Magazine issue 20 (February 2016)

The desire to make this quilt started as more of a desire for the process. The intention was to create a unified work using a bundle of strips - I wanted a project where I could mindlessly sew strips, and use just a bit of concentration while trimming and cutting the pieces. I wanted something that would draw the viewer in, contain their senses for a moment. Following the continuity of line, and contrast of color I worked to create a striking quilt. Sometimes the simplest strips can do ...

WIP Wednesday: Jelly Roll Quilt from Hobbies Up To Here

I needed a quick and satisfying project to get me back in the swing of creating yesterday.   I quickly went through my jelly roll drawer, and searched for the fabric that made my heart race the most.

I kept coming back to this Moda jelly roll called Sunflower Song.  Yup!  That was it! Civil War type prints in rich browns, greens, cream prints, blues and deep reds, was the ticket! 

I rewatched Missouri Star Quilt Co.’s YouTube tutorial Jelly roll race and then sat down at my machine and started stitching.  It took me more than the hour the ...

New Friday Tutorial: The Crosswalk Quilt Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Make the Crosswalk Quilt using 2.5" Strips and 5" Squares! Free Video Tutorial with Jenny Doan!

There’s nothing as quaint as a small town. (Of course, as small town folks ourselves, we may be a tad bit biased!) I’m talking about the kind of place where you can step off your front porch and follow the sidewalk to the library, the park, or the corner bakery. It’s the kind of place where kids can ride their bikes all the way across town and the neighbors are friendly and familiar.

Today’s new tutorial, The Crosswalk Quilt, was inspired by a beautiful line of fabric called Neighborhood. It’s simple and sweet, but intricate ...

Picking Up Where I Left Off from Patchwork Sampler Blog

It has been a long time since I’ve done ANY sewing.  It was the summer of walking and walk we did, but now it’s time to get back to business.

When my husband Jim retired in July, he had never taken more than one week of vacation at a time so we planned a trip to change take advantage of his new found leisure time. We hiked England’s Coast to Coast path. To prepare for walking 10-18 miles a day, we walked all summer long.  By the time we left on September 16, we were regularly walking ...
