Flying Geese quilt ladder runner from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I'm excited to update you on a project I started last year, a long Flying Geese runner featuring one of my favorite fabric collections, Harvest Road by Lella Boutique for Moda. The runner is finished, and I've displayed it on a quilt ladder in my living room. I'm really happy with how it turned out!



The inspiration for this project came from the Furrows block and Harvest tablerunner in Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage book. My runner is much longer than the sample in the book, finishing at 96" long by 12" wide ...

Star Watch: a sunny quilt featuring Calico Days by Lori Holt from Carried Away Quilting


I’m popping in today to share a cheerful, farm-fresh version of my Star Watch pattern, this time featuring the Calico Days collection by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs.


Sewn up in a sunny collection like this, Star Watch becomes a happy, scrappy jelly roll quilt. Simple log cabins provide the foundation for the quilt, while a row of sunny stars adds a playful twinkle.


Calico Days was released by Lori Holt a few years ago, but she has numerous collections that are just as darling. Any vintage-inspired fabric lines would shine with this pattern.


For my Calico Days ...

Hello quilting friends! I hope you all had a joyous holiday and are excited about the coming New Year. I’ve been thankful for a quiet December. Besides enjoying time with family, I worked on my 2020 calendar, read, wrote project lists and goals, and watched some favorite old movies.

Started a new one... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 Thanks for the wonderful comments on my SIL's quilt.  :)  She gave it to my brother and he loved it.  :)

I worked on my applique block.  I had it ironed to the background but hadn't stitched around it.  I got all of the green done but not the tulips yet.  After I get this first block done I will prep another.
 While I was working on the applique Richard built a grape arbor for me!!!  He is just so awesome!!!  I love it!!!
 He's still on vacation and Thursday had some nice weather so we took the motorcycle ...
