Flags for Sue from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

I am a bit behind in my blog reading but I noticed this morning that Alycia (You might know her as Quitygirl) is putting a call out for flag blocks.  One of her Quilts of Valor volunteers has passed and it sure sounds like she had a giving heart.

I have always held generous people in high regard and I think it is so fitting to honor Sue (and her family) by making lots of QOV Flag quilts in her memory.




I have always wanted to make some of these blocks.  You can find the pattern here.  These blocks are ...

Say hello to Primrose Cottage Quilts from Carried Away Quilting


This past weekend we celebrated Independence Day at my mom’s home on Lake Minnewaska in west central Minnesota. We had loads of fun, ate too much, chatted and laughed, watched the fireworks and enjoyed the beauty of the lake.  My Star Spangled quilt also made the trip so that I could take a few finished shots to share with you!  


It was a humid, hazy and slightly breezy afternoon as I tried to take these photos. It’s not the easiest task, let me tell you! But I love this quilt and the cheerful, festive vibe it gives off ...

Old Glory Tutorial from My Quilt Infatuation

After many requests for a pattern for my Old Glory quilt, I decided to put together a little tutorial for it.  Because structured improvisation is included in my book in great detail, I am only including basic instructions for the components and layout for the quilt using solid color representation for the blocks.  If you want to make this quilt using your scraps with improv as shown, check out my book, Stash Statement, for three different easy methods!



This quilt is actually pretty simple in its design.  It only uses two classic quilt blocks, the half square triangle (HST) and ...

Old Glory and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy 4th of July to all of my friends in the USA!  I hope your day is filled with family, fun, and maybe even a few fireworks.  I showed a peek at my latest quilt on IG back in March, but for a handful of reasons, I never actually revealed the full finished quilt.  Well, I figured that Independence Day would be the perfect time to share it, and you can see why!

ps- with today's holiday, I'm posting NTT early, so I don't forget!


I had lots of fun digging into my red and dark blue ...

June OMG: Done and Done from Patchwork Sampler Blog

With Independence Day around the corner these patriotic quilts were perfect for June’s One Monthly Goal. After not completing May’s OMG, I needed the satisfaction of finishing something!!  It was another busy month but I had just enough time to finish the tops and quilt them. Then some hand stitching bindings while watching World Cup soccer was all it took. These were old, old UFO’s–so old in fact that I can no longer find the patterns for them in my sewing room.

I was pretty sure this was a Pat Sloan design, but I couldn’t ...

A finished top: the Star Spangled BOM with Fort Worth Fabric Studio from Carried Away Quilting


Back in January I jumped on the red, white and blue bandwagon and joined Fort Worth Fabric Studio and designer Lindsey Weight for their Star Spangled block of the month program, and I’m so glad I did! My top is finished and I’m one step closer to having my first patriotic quilt!


I took some quick photos on my lawn in a shady spot that was dappled with sunlight.  Although my Star Spangled top still needs to be quilted, I can already see that it will be a wonderful summer picnic/display quilt. It’s so festive!

Star Spangled BOM with Fort Worth Fabric Studio: Chain Blocks from Carried Away Quilting

Hello all! Today I want to share my Chain Blocks for the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio and designer Lindsey Weight. These are the last five blocks in the program. Later this month we'll be assembling the quilt top. I can't wait to see it all put together!  


Lindsey’s instructions call for a scrappy chain block using a combination of all the navy and red prints used in the quilt.  But you know me, I had to change it up just a little bit. I really like my tonal red-on-red ...

Quilt till you Wilt! from Podunk Pretties

Happy Hump Day sweet friends!  It's quilt till you wilt time.  I'm working hard to finish up this by the weekend.


Some of you may remember this quilt from a couple years ago.  I named her Patriotic Picnic. You can see more of the quilt here.  


The applique on this quilt is quite large but was really quick and easy using invisible machine applique.  You can see more about how I did the machine applique here. 


Finding the backing fabric for this quilt was a two week ordeal but was so worth the hours of searching.  I wanted ...

Star Spangled BOM with Fort Worth Fabric Studio: Flying Geese from Carried Away Quilting


This weekend I finally got my sewing self in gear and made my flying geese units for the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio. Designer Lindsey Weight posted the free instructions on March 13, but . . . well . . . Taunja got a little sidetracked! Luckily, the 48 over-sized flying geese were a snap to stitch together!




If you've been following along, you know that I’ve been sewing from my stash, using a combination of fabrics from Fig Tree & Company as well as Bonnie & Camille (both for Moda). I've really enjoyed the creative process of ...

It might be Valentine's Day, but I have red, white and blue on my mind! Today I want to share my third block from the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio and designed by Lindsey Weight! 



Isn't this a pretty Star-in-a-Star block?  Once again I've used mainly Fig Tree fabrics from my stash, but I also pulled in a bit of Bonnie & Camille on this block.  The navy floral on the outer star is from their "The Good Life" collection.

Stars and Stripes Forever from Cowtown Quilts

Mary has always been an easy one to quilt for, and this quilt was no exception.  Isn’t this an awesome looking quilt?  This is for her grandson.  It may look like the stripes are just strips, but they are pieced.  The stars on the top (where I’m guessing it will rest on a pillow) are appliqued down.  She let her grandson place the stars where he wanted them.  Isn’t that cool?  I don’t know that I would have thought to do that.  But, it gets the receiver of the quilt gift involved and more excited about ...
