wedding ring block from Making A Lather

Awhile ago, I mentioned that I had a bag of squares that were cut a little off. And, that, I would have to trim, and, cut for something new here. I made sets of the pieces I would need, and, then put them in a drawer. I forgot about them, until, I was checking for something and found them again. I was able to piece one lonely block. I am going to like them.

I couldn't fit another piece of 2 1/2 inch fabric into my temporary drawer. It wouldn't close. It was time to sort the ...

I recently made the Rolling Hills quilt by Miss Winnie Designs. I loved the ease of putting it together piece by piece. I loved that it used a jelly roll and a background. So simple.

     I have made strip quilts like this, but not with the pieced prints, usually one print and one white. From the appearance, I can only surmise the flaws. One, the strips were sewn slightly off. Second, the print pieces were not sewn ...

Modern Art Quilt - Red, White and Pointy from I Love Baby Quilts!

My eight year old daughter recently picked this quilt out of some inspiration photos I had saved over the years as her big girl quilt. I wish I could find where I got the photo so I could attribute the praise properly, if anyone recognizes it, I'd love to give proper credit!

First, I took the photo and reverse engineered some measurements, based on how big I wanted the quilt to be.

Next I cut strips and started sewing and laying them out on the design wall.

 And voila, a top was born. I just eyeballed the measurements of ...
