I think the rich tones of the tulips are stunning against the quiet neutrals. If you have basic appliqué and paper piecing skills, you can make this cheery spring project in no time at all ...
It’s taken 8 months, but at last I’ve finished the 100 Blocks 100 Days. All 100 blocks from Tula Pink’s City Sampler book are DONE. And it feels so good! Although, I’m not going to lie, I’m not looking forward to the amount of sashing I need to cut…
I made a big push and got the final 11 blocks cut out that I needed to make (I’d made block 100 for the final day of the quilt along, haha!), but they sat around for a little bit longer. I finally got down to ...read more
I try to get my mini Milky Way Sampler blocks made by the middle of the month (yes, these ones I sew along each month!), but being away, then gastro, and now a bad cold has put a slight delay onto everything. Thank goodness these guys are so quick and cute to whip up! I’m using up scraps of Liberty and Kona Oyster to make my 4″ (finished) mini Milky Way Sampler blocks, which I do by printing the pattern at 40%.
It seems I’ve settled on doing sweet pinks for this project. Which is fine by me ...read more
No, don’t fall over in shock, I haven’t made any further progress through the 1930s Farmer’s Wife quilt book, I’ve just had this post sitting in my drafts for months and months. This was actually one of the first blocks I ever made from the book! Seriously, this draft has been sitting here since October 2015. Far out! And now, it’s the second to last block for the quilt along hosted by Gnome Angel. Crazy!
This little lady is actually the centre block for my quilt, which is why I made it grey – no ...read more
This year I have teamed up with Cheryl (she has been a past guest designer for the iaquilters online quilt group, and we have teamed up in the past to do a few fun things as well! So excited to be part of this group of designers and the rows so far are wonderful….I’m thinking you’ll want to sew along with us!
The idea was to design a row with the theme:
In My Neighborhood Row by Row Quilt Along
Love that theme! I did a quilt along a year or so ago and it was Around ...read more
Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt did a guest post at Fat Quarter Shop to kick off Pattern Makeover. The idea is to use a book you already own, and create something stand-a-lone. Heidi created these coasters that way. Selecting something in a pastel palette would make these perfect for welcoming Spring. I’m picturing one of these cuties under a cocktail on my back patio with my feet up and the grill on.

If you would like the free (for the month of March) pattern for this block
check out Carol's blog Here.
Hello hello. It's March - and although March typically has us thinking green, I'm here with some Orange Pop for ya! Thirsty? I say pop. I grew up in Cleveland. Although my dad (from PA) was a big "soda" advocate, the local high school culture eventually converted me.) Month 3 of the Chocolatier Block of the Month Club is here and ready for the making.
Today, the Month #3 Block Pattern for Chocolatier is now available. Check your emails and mailboxes!
2 blocks again this month. We have the Louisiana block and the Framed Plus this month. Loving the ... read more
This past Christmas I had decided to use the flannel layer cakes that I had picked up last year at Spring Quilt Market.
They were super yummy and such a great deal.
Looking at the packs and trying to keep it simple I decided I only wanted to use the layer cakes + the quilt backing.
Simple and quick.
However, I couldn’t just sew the blocks straight across and together (I could, but did want to make them a little bit funner).
So- I made a few different quilts, all starting with the ...
The I spy quilt block (also referred to as the eye spy quilt block) is really a quick and simple quilt block. It’s one that I’ve used a few times.
It’s a very forgiving quilt block as the points are lost in the process….not because you sewed them wrong!
The fun thing about the quilt block is that your conversation or spy fabric is going to be in the center of the block and will be surrounded by your background. When you sew your blocks together, the centers will be on point- giving your quilt even ...read more
It has been thrilling to see so many of you jumping on board with the mini Milky Way Sampler blocks! They’re so much fun at such a little size, and it’s a great way to use up scraps. I’m using up scraps of Liberty and Kona Oyster to make my 4″ (finished) mini Milky Way Sampler blocks, which I do by printing the pattern at 40%.
I’m not entirely sure what colour palette I’m going for overall, but I think I’ll stick with the soft and sweet prints, which means mostly pinks. There’s ...read more

Create a pretty wall hanging for your spring decor . . .
. . . or a sweet and cheery table runner.
As many quilters have done, I will depart from the pattern and add different blocks to the 'body' of the house. Four-patch and churn dash were on the top of the list, and ... read more
Read the title of this blog post once more, aloud… *giggles* Yep, I gathered a bunch of my top-notch quilty buddies to join in this year’s quilting bees sewing from the quilt blocks from The Bee Hive! And it’s a fantastic group of ladies, if our name doesn’t already give that away read more
