Something Charming from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

I don't often use precuts or sew with a full collection of fabrics, but I couldn't resist these Lily & Loom Space Camp charm squares from Craftsy.

The prints in this collection are so adorable and the quality is just what I have come to expect from Craftsy.  (I have previously used Boundless solids and their prints in some previous projects).  There are so many Lily & Loom collections it was hard to choose one to try.

 I have two charm square packs to play with.  If you have a favorite pattern, be sure and let me know in the ...

Simple Squares, Striking Modern-ish Quilts from Gefilte Quilt

A couple of years ago, I got myself hooked on squares. Among the results is a set of 5 sibling quilts - quiltuplets! - made up of 4" squares. Even beginners can do this. Here's #1. 
Detail - easy freemotion designs repeated along the diagonal. 
 Baby #2 below. It has a preppy border...
And insanely simple quilting....
  Baby #3: I satin stitch appliqued the smaller squares.
 Baby #4, with paper-foundation-pieced scrappy triangle borders:
And finally, I chopped up leftover squares to make the youngest and kookiest (which squeaked into QuiltCon.)
Below are some of the dozens of photos I took of ...

Two Way Street Quilt Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Learn to make this Two Way Street Quilt with Jenny!

On August 14, 2010, a massive traffic jammed formed on the China National Highway. The tangle of cars was so gridlocked, drivers were inching forward at a pace of just over a half mile per day.

Summer Camp Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Summer Camp Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Many years ago, Jenny took her very first quilt class. Even though she was already an accomplished seamstress, quilting seemed a bit daunting. During that class, she learned how to make a log cabin. And when she realized how simple and versatile that little block can be, a fire was lit! Before the class finished, Jenny had completed 12 quilts – and she’s never stopped quilting!
