Nautical News in Almost Amish Solids has been restocked by Connecting Threads in the Twin size!  This is the third time it has been restocked because it sells so quickly.

I ♥ to figure out how to make quilt patterns into rainbows, and ...

Red wagon quilt patterns: free projects you must make from Pieced Brain

Red wagon quilt patterns: free projects you must make

Choose one of these red wagon quilt patterns or make them both! Bring back childhood memories of riding fun, and make one for each child!

This is Quilt 1 which I created for the My Red Wagon collection by Debbie Busby for Henry Glass. I am smitten by the textures and colors of these fabrics and so happy I was able to work with them! The prints spell ‘cozy’ with plaids and paisleys and are versatile as well because they include whimsical motifs for the entire year. Debbie was inspired!

Debbie worked with a primitive palette, imbuing each fabric with ...

Working with Cooking Up Quilts! from Needle and Foot

Hello everyone! Just popping in this morning to share a project that Beth Sellers and I ‘cooked up’. As you know, I love to support many of the talented quilt designers in our community by selling their patterns in the shop. My preference is to purchase directly from them whenever I can, as opposed to through a distributor. It helps the designer a tiny bit financially and allows me to get to know the person too. A total win-win.

Recently I placed an order with Cooking Up Quilts to restock some patterns that had sold out in the shop. Her ...

The Boredom of the New Normal on Off the Wall Friday from Creations - Quilts, Art, Whatever by Nina-Marie Sayre

 I truly want to just slap the person who coined the phrase, "The New Normal".  There is nothing normal about what the country is going through right now .  Not to mention when your days are filled with social distancing nothing "New" ever really happens.  A trip to get groceries feels like your big day out!

I blame this for the reason I broke down this week and pulled out a new project without really finishing any of the ones I have going.  This spring I saw on ebay where a widowed husband was auctioning off

the over 200 quilt kits ...

Sweet Caroline Throw Size Quilt Kit! from Busy Hands Quilts

Sweet Caroline has been kitted by Connecting Threads in the Throw size.  This is the Wild Crimson fabric collection, focusing on the blue fabrics in the collection instead of the reds and tans.  



The pattern gives exact fabric placement to create the three darker squares in the middle of the 25-patch blocks.  They alternate direction every other block to create a subtle secondary design.  

Sweet Caroline is a yardage-friendly quilt pattern that uses strip piecing to go together quickly.  

TIP:  Be sure your strip sets are the correct height so the blocks fit together ...

Sunday Stash July 12, 2020 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week.
SS yellowThe start the next shirt plan got sidetracked. When I laid out the pattern, I found the fabric was discolored in places. Washing lightened the marks but didn’t remove them. They were scattered enough I couldn’t cut around them.
I moved on to plan B.
very cherryMy sister sent me this kit last year. I saw feathers and ribbon candy quilted in the frames until I did a mock up. The fancy quilting competed with all those patterned fabrics. Sometimes simple is better.
I finished it for a yard out. Now I need to ...

Oh My Darling Quilt Kit! from Busy Hands Quilts

Oh My Darling has been kitted by Connecting Thread in the beautiful Wild Crimson fabric collection!  This is the Throw size.

I see cowboy boots and blue jeans when I look at this quilt with the denim-look blue background fabric.  More and more I'm using darker tone-on-tone fabrics as the background fabric and loving it!  ♥  I'm all for usable quilts, and it just seems like it's easier to use, love, and handle a quilt with a darker background.

Applique’ winter quilt pattern for a warm and fun winter from Pieced Brain

Applique’ winter quilt pattern for a warm and fun winter

I blogged about my latest free applique’ winter quilt pattern a few weeks ago and today I want to show you how absolutely gorgeous it can turn out! I am sure you will be inspired to get ready for Christmas right now!

Photographs by Rebsfabstash.com. Used with permission.

Rebecca and Christy from RebsFabStash did an amazing job on this quilt. I originally designed Holiday Retreat with the Moda Fabrics’ Forest Frost Glitter collection. I think it would look great with any colorway and fabric collection you chose but their selection is stunning.

Garden Party Quilt Kits on Sale! from Busy Hands Quilts


Summer on the Porch has been kitted by Bluprint in Twin and Queen sizes, and they are currently on sale for half price!  This is a great time to pick up some beautiful fabrics at a great price.  I made the queen size quilt sample you see on Bluprint's website, and this is it hanging on my clothesline.  Yes, this is the quilt that I broke the clothesline with, not because of the weight of the quilt, but because of my impatience.  :(  You can read more right here.
