Laying Out the Quilt Top from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

How are doing with the y-seam chain piecing?  
If you feel a bit frustrated, remember this is a new technique for you.  With some consistent practice, you'll find a rhythm and it will feel more natural -- I promise!!

I finished all 42 of my assorted units and laid them out on the design bed.
Good thing the guest bed is clear as the design wall in my studio is clogged up with #100days100blocks!?!
Working with the thirty 4-hexagon units, lay out 5 across and 6 rows down. 
Lay them out as they come off the top of the stack ...

Let's Start Piecing!! from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

Last week, I invited all of you to join me in making a scrappy hexagon quilt.
If you didn't see the first post, it's HERE.
Are you ready to do some piecing? 
Even if you don't have everything cut, you can still start piecing.
Take another look at Marti's template.  See the holes drilled in each of the six corners?
If this is your first y-seam piecing, I encourage you to set the template on the wrong sides of the hexagons and mark a dot through each of those holes.

A bit tedious?
Yes, but it ...

It’s time to announce the winner of the Hallo-Harvest layer cake by Basic Grey for Moda. But first, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for leaving a comment.

Autumn quilt ideas and a layer cake giveaway! from Carried Away Quilting


Just a few months ago, I was whining to you about the spring snowstorms we were experiencing in central Minnesota. Well, I’m back with a new weather complaint today . . . it’s 92 degrees F, with a “feels like” temperature of 100 due to the high humidity. Good grief, that’s hot!

While I don’t want to wish away my summer, my mind can’t help but console itself with the thought that in just a few months, autumn will be here. Right now I’m imagining myself taking a long walk wearing bluejeans and a sweatshirt, tromping on ...

Next Up: a graduation quilt from Carried Away Quilting


I have a special quilt to share with you today, a gift for our niece Molly, who is graduating from high school. Molly is a sweet, smart, soft-spoken young lady who also has a great sense of humor. With her easy-going temperament and kind ways, I just know she will make a positive mark on the world.  It makes me happy to be sending a quilt along with her to college, to remind her how much she is loved.


When I asked Molly if there was a style or color combination she would like for her quilt, she wasn’t ...

Spring cleaning, new Etsy shop listings and a new quilt project from Carried Away Quilting


Although we still have snow in the yard and ice on the lake, I’m hopeful that warmer weather is just around the corner. There are some positive signs: the robins are singing and the sun is shining longer each evening. My hopefulness translated into some spring cleaning in my sewing room, which meant a restocking of my Etsy shop!

I’ve been holding onto some much-loved charm packs, jelly rolls, bolt-end fabric and other bundles. I decided to let go of some treasured merchandise and list it in my Etsy shop. I hope you’ll find that special something ...

Layer-Cake Quilts and Giveaway from Pieced Brain

Last night I read that our bodies crave different colors at different times ("Light Emerging - The Journey of Personal Healing" by Barbara Ann Brennan). Since I began quilting, it seems my body just plain craves colors in all its fiber varieties: bright or subdued, busy or calm, old fashioned or super modern. Against any background, as long as the colors dance before my eyes, my body dances, too, and my spirit soars regardless of what may be happening around me.

Dakota Sunrise Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Dakota Sunrise Quilt

Designer Tula Pink knows a thing or two about color. Her solids are delicious shades of “limeade” “persimmon” and “hibiscus.” Best of all? She chose a gorgeously bold fuchsia and named it after herself, Tula Pink! (Now I’m wondering…what color would I pick for my own name?)

Dakota Sunrise Quilt

Click HERE to watch Jenny use Tula’s solids in the quick and easy Dakota Sunrise quilt. This one’s a stunner, and it’s so fun to make!

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 ...
