Autumn quilt ideas and a layer cake giveaway! from Carried Away Quilting


Just a few months ago, I was whining to you about the spring snowstorms we were experiencing in central Minnesota. Well, I’m back with a new weather complaint today . . . it’s 92 degrees F, with a “feels like” temperature of 100 due to the high humidity. Good grief, that’s hot!

While I don’t want to wish away my summer, my mind can’t help but console itself with the thought that in just a few months, autumn will be here. Right now I’m imagining myself taking a long walk wearing bluejeans and a sweatshirt, tromping on ...

Spring pattern sale from Carried Away Quilting

We are experiencing bitterly cold weather in central Minnesota. Yep, today's low temperature was -11 F.  (They say it's going to warm up to zero this afternoon.)  Next week our temps are expected to dip near -30 F. That is just not right! Don't even get me started on the snow and wind that the weather stations are also predicting.

To improve my mood, I've been looking through my spring patterns and dreaming of green grass, budding leaves, and pretty pastel flowers. Maybe you all need the promise of spring as much as I do! If ...

I was ready to pull out the holly and the ivy. It took every bit of restraint I had to leave the Christmas decorations in the storage room.

So instead, I thought I’d share some of my favorite holiday makes from the past couple of years. You can click on each project link for full details and more photos!

Custom kits featuring Ella & Ollie by Fig Tree & Company from Carried Away Quilting

Happy National Quilting Day! As promised, I've made up several custom kits with Carried Away Quilting patterns, all featuring the beautiful new collection by Fig Tree & Company, Ella & Ollie! 

Please note that I am not a fabric store, and I only purchase a small supply of fabric annually for use in my pattern design. So these kits are limited in number and once they are gone, they are gone. I appreciate your support and enthusiasm, but please remember that my blog sponsors (whose logos run along the left-hand side of my website) typically carry the same collections that I ...

Single block "Star Crossed Pines" and other gift ideas from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends! Today I want to share some holiday gift ideas with you. Christmas is just around the corner, and many of us are feeling disappointed that we didn’t get more homemade gifts accomplished during the year.  Well, I have two small projects that you could definitely complete before the holidays, plus another unique gift idea designed by a young artist!

Some of you are familiar with my “Star Crossed Pines” pattern, a 74” x 80” quilt featuring scrappy stars and festive pine trees. It turns out that just one block from that pattern makes a darling wall ...
