Sew Sampler box roundup: July, August and September from Carried Away Quilting


We’ve been in our new home for one month, and I’m just starting to feel like my head is above water.  My sewing room is slowly coming together. I’m very much a “ducks in a row” person.  I think I take after my Grandma Arlene in that regard . . . a place for everything and everything in its place.

Hello, everyone! This year I am participating in the Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop hosted by Just Let Me Quilt. It is all about sharing Christmas traditions, cookie recipes, and many giveaways - a perfect way to begin this December, don't you agree?

Beach Ball Dresden Quilt Tutorial With Special Guests from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

See what the Double Wide Dresden Ruler can do for you with this fun tutorial!

They say less is more, but what if we’re talking about ice cream? Because in my book, a double scoop outscores a single scoop every day of the week. And after watching this week’s new tutorial, I think you’ll agree: a Double Wide Dresden Ruler is much more fun than a single!

 

Barb and Mary from Me & My Sister Designs teach Jenny a couple great tricks with their Double Wide Dresden Ruler.

This week Barb and Mary of Me & My Sister Designs are in the studio with Jenny to whip up some dresden magic. Click HERE to learn how to use their double wide template to make a beautiful Beach Ball Dresden Quilt!
