A scrappy quilt featuring low volume fabrics from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends! I’m popping in today to show you a recent finish, my Happy Trails quilt featuring some favorite low volume prints from Fig Tree & Company. Happy Trails is just one of six fabulous patterns available in the Scrappy Project Planner by Lori Holt.

There are several reasons this quilt is special to me:

First, I took my time with it. Too often, quilt making becomes a rush due to deadlines. But this quilt evolved slowly.  I ordered the Scrappy Project Planner from My Timeless Day back in November of 2017. I took my time learning what the ...

Autumn pillow featuring Calico Crow by Lauren Nash for Riley Blake Designs from Carried Away Quilting

October in Minnesota is beautiful. For most of the month, the lawns are still green but the trees put on a brilliant show of golden oranges, fiery reds, deep rusts and regal plums. While it’s true that our temperatures begin to drop in October, the weather is typically mild. It’s the season of scarves and sweaters, camp fires, crisp evening walks, and pretty pots of mums on the porch. Yes, we try to squeeze it all in before the first snow flies!

Autumn is my favorite season. While I should probably sew my fall flavored quilting projects in ...

My Timeless Day: custom kits for Diamond Trail and Summer Breeze! from Carried Away Quilting

As a pattern designer, it is always a thrill to see my patterns sewn up by other quilters. It’s exciting to see one of my creations come to life with a different color palette, fabric style or theme. It’s also quite a thrill when quilt shop owners kit my patterns and offer a custom option to their customers.

One of my sponsor shops, My Timeless Day of Alcester, SD, has recently kitted two of my new patterns: Diamond Trail and Summer Breeze.  Shop owner Allison has a great eye for putting colors together, and I just love what ...

Finding my focus with the Scrappy Project Planner from Carried Away Quilting

One of my goals for 2018 is to become more focused in my quilting life. I have a tendency to get carried away with numerous project ideas bouncing recklessly in my brain, each competing for the top spot on my mental to-do list.  Sometimes, I admit, it makes me feel scattered! I know I’m not alone. Other quilting friends in this new social media age have told me the same thing.

My first step toward quilting focus was to purchase Lori Holt’s Scrappy Project Planner.  I ordered it from my friend and sponsor, Allison of My Timeless Day ...

My Timeless Day grand opening: New storefront from Carried Away Quilting

In July of 2016, Allison Cotton made her quilting dreams come true by opening an online quilt store, My Timeless Day. Now, just 16 months later, Allison is expanding that dream by opening a new brick and mortar storefront as well! This weekend is the Grand Opening, and Allison was kind enough to share some photos of her lovely new shop, so that I could share them with all of you!

Window Garden in Tilda: A project update from Carried Away Quilting

Last February I began a Window Garden quilt for myself, using some much loved (and hoarded) Tilda fabric. Because this wasn’t a gift and I had no particular deadline, I worked on this top in between other projects, here and there, as time allowed. Now my top is done and headed off to the quilter! I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

Every time I brought out this project to cut or sew a little bit, I felt a renewed love for the fabric and the pattern. 

Window Garden is a layer cake pattern, but as I ...
