Introducing Winter Trees from Patterns by Jen

 I'm so excited to introduce you to the first pattern from Patterns By Jen for 2021!

Winter Trees is the perfect quilt to keep around all winter long.

I love this quilt. When I started sketching it I wanted something simple that brought to mind the quiet in the winter woods.

There's a special silence that takes over the woods when the snow is falling, it's something that can't be described, but I hope this pattern brings it to mind.

It's not just a quilt pattern, it's a bed runner, too.

Add a modern ...

A short dispatch from The Academic Quilter

Hi all! I'm waving wildly over here, from the significant mess that is my life right now. After six months of living in this house, it is finally time to banish the brown and gray, and I could not be happier, even though it has made a real mess around here. For those of you who don't remember, or maybe I never said, every room in our new place in Maryland is painted either brown or gray, with gray floors. Yeah, not great, and seriously depressing. But now it's being painted over in some lovely, happier colors ...

Ohio in orange from The Academic Quilter

Hi all, and welcome to the weekend! Lately it seems that I have just as much work to do on the weekend as during the week, but at least I get to do it in yoga pants.

I really liked it, and it just seems weird that it went so fast. So now the search is on for a new (used) vehicle, a process I find ...

Previously Backlogged Jobs - A link up from Patterns by Jen

Anyone have a stack of WIPs (Works in progress)?

You don't need to answer that. I think most of us have projects we have put off, gifts that didn't get done in time so they were put away, a frustrating pattern, a project with fabrics we ended up not liking.

Two years ago I tried to get caught up on the BOM projects that I had been putting off from my LQS. I wanted to make an extra block each month to catch up. Well, that didn't last very long. In keeping with my strive to be ...

Prickles from The Academic Quilter

Hi all! How are you? It has been a very, very stressful week for me. Mostly work stuff, but also we're gearing up for some home remodelling, and you know how that goes. I have to tell you, we haven't even started and I'm already tired of it.  At least the gray will be entirely gone and there will be a lot of satisfaction in that. And there will be an actual closet, which will be a huge bonus.  You don't really think about closets until you don't have a place to put your coat ...
