The Fan-tastic Quilt and Pattern from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Something that I cannot believe is that through all of my years of quilting, I have never made a Fourth of July quilt. It has been on my list of things to do. My Aunt Dourthy has star quilt that I adore!! I have always wanted to create something like it. Actually I bought a pattern with stars and stripes many years ago. Somehow the project has been pushed aside. But let me tell you, when I saw this line of red, white, and blues, I was inspired to create something fun and I knew that it had to be ...

Lost! Two Quilts from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Please share! Let’s help Peggy to find these quilts. In her own words: “A very sad quilt thing happened. After I brought home my quilts from our guild’s quilt show, I gave my daughter back the 2 I had made for her kids, my grands. They were in her car along with a bunch of other things to be dropped off to a charity box in Media, PA. Yep! On November 1, they were mistakenly dropped into the box, as well. She has contacted the company and she and they’ve gone through bins and bins of things ...

sweet baby makes from Charm About You


embroidery hooded baby towel

I have a couple of cute baby projects to share that I made for Sewing Quarter in celebration of Natasha's baby shower recently.
This adorable hooded baby towel is based on one I had as a child, that my kids all used too! It's a combination of soft plush fleece fabric and towelling. Neither of which is easy to hand embroider but I used the brilliant Stitch-n-Tear with DMC perle cotton #5 and it worked really nicely!

busy, busy, busy from easypatchwork

Hello everyone! It's nice to see you again! I know I have been absent. It is so hard for me to blog these days. I wanted to let you know what is going on in my life that is exciting but sometimes overwhelming too. First of all, I made a couple of patterns, one for free and one payable. The first one is a set of foundations for a 2-Inch and 3-Inch Pineapple Block on Etsy. It includes two pages of

Star Spangled BOM with Fort Worth Fabric Studio: Block 4 from Carried Away Quilting


Hi quilting friends! I’m moving right along on the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio and designer Lindsey Weight! I’ve made the fourth star block, which features an inside pinwheel!


I’ve been sewing from my stash, using a combination of fabrics from Fig Tree & Company as well as Bonnie & Camille (both for Moda). Several different fabric collections are represented here, and I’m happy with how well they all work together.


This fun little inside pinwheel that Lindsey designed is just so sweet. I think my secondary blue might be a ...

New pattern: Summer Breeze, a mini charm pack quilt from Carried Away Quilting


My third new quilt pattern this year is called Summer Breeze. Colorful pinwheels spin like whirligigs in a warm breeze. Grab your favorite mini charm pack and some coordinating fabrics to create this cheerful scene, all wrapped up by a dancing ribbon.  


Summer Breeze finishes at 26 1/2" square, making it the perfect size for a seasonal wall hanging or kitchen table topper. In my sample I used a mini charm pack of "Aria" by Kate Spain for Moda. I love the saturated colors that Kate uses in her collections.



The ribbon effect is achieved by selecting two greens ...

Pinwheel Quilt from From My Carolina Home

This past week, I finished quilting a quilt destined for a family that has lost their home in the California fires in Santa Rosa. I was very happy to be a part of this project pieced by a friend, who knows the woman and her family.  The quilt is a scrappy delight, with pinwheels, four-patches and solid blocks with a colorful border.

It is a lap size, so wouldn’t take long to finish quilting.

Yes, I did fold it up, because I know my friend and her piecing is precision done and the borders are always applied right.  No ...

Solids and Cabbage from Quiltifications



It's not a healthy living hack of my blogger account, I promise.  There simply wasn't anything else to call this quilt!  Any suggestions for names will be taken seriously from my faithful readers.


I purchased two jelly rolls on clearance at a very nice little shop in Gainesville last year while on a quilting retreat.  Made some very quick strip blocks from them and zapped them together into a top.  I had to look around for a while, but I was CERTAIN there was a Kaffe Fassett fabric that would be perfect for the border.  :D found it ...
