Holiday themed rag quilt with Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting


I’ve lost count of how many quilts I’ve made over the years, which is probably a good thing. (I might be embarrassed to know the total number.) But in all my years of sewing and quilting, I had never made a rag quilt . . . until recently that is! Armed with a great pattern and some charming holiday themed flannels, my home is ready for Christmas visitors thanks to this new quilt.


For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, a rag quilt is made by sewing sandwiched blocks (a block top, a piece of batting, and a ...

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 ...

Summer Moon QAL: October Blocks from Carried Away Quilting


This past weekend I stitched up my October blocks for the Summer Moon Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop. This month’s assignment includes three pretty blocks: Checkerboard, Darting Birds and Nonsense. I’m sewing from my stash, and my blocks feature a mix of prints by Lella Boutique and Corey Yoder, who are two of my favorite Moda designers.


I went rogue and broke the rules on the Checkerboard block, but I had a good reason. I wanted to use the alphabet script from Corey’s Yoder’s Strawberry Jam collection as my neutral for this block. The problem ...

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 ...

Hello quilting friends. Fabric kits are now available for my two newest patterns: 9-Patch Pivot and Star Watch. The long-awaited Harvest Road fabric is in stock at LouLou’s Fabric shop, and the kits are ready! Will one of these pretty quilts become your next project?

Another Lakeside Star quilt! from Carried Away Quilting


My second Lakeside Star quilt is finished and ready to be gifted to a lovely bride and groom-to-be, our beautiful niece and her handsome fiancé! I hope this quilt will add the warm reminder of family love and support to their home. We live several states apart and don’t get to see them often. It’s nice to think of them snuggled together under this cozy quilt, watching a movie or sharing their day’s experiences.


The Lakeside Star pattern is a good choice for a quilt intended for a young couple.  It’s bold and graphic, which fits ...

Fancy Little Mug Rugs from Solid Stars from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I have a fun little gift project to share today!



I made three little mug rugs, using
some 6 1/2" star blocks that I made
a short long time ago. 

{Ahem...time flies.}

You can read more about the Moda Sweetwater solid bundle
of fabrics that I used, in this post.




I had such fun stitching up these solid blocks!
I used one of them on the back of a little table runner,


Hmmm...solid blocks do tend to show "mistakes", 
don't they?
I'm pretty sure I've ...

Last finish of the year! from Texas Quilting

Honestly, I didn’t think I could get 4 quilts finished between mid October and before Christmas. Okay, so one was well on its way and by the first week of December it was with its new owner. But that still left a large lap sized quilt and 2 large wall hangings – 3 feet by 4 feet! Finally I just told my husband I was setting everything else aside and power through because it was stressing me out to have that hanging over my head.

I had the tops finished – on point diamonds – but I had the quilting to do ...

{ A Quick Project- the Mondo Bag} from {The Sweetest Dreams}

I attended my first quilting guild meeting last month and saw several ladies with these amazing patchwork bags. I inquired about an available pattern and was told that most of the guild members have made a Mondo bag. Some have made many.

Quiltsmart offers a pattern and fusible interfacing kit that make the construction of the bags so easy. Two charm packs and some yardage are needed. 



This is a very roomy bag. Great for a beach tote or even a diaper bag. Quiltsmart even offers a smaller option , the Midi Bag.  I've already got two more planned-one for ...
