Summer Moon QAL: August blocks from Carried Away Quilting


I’m back today with another set of blocks for the Summer Moon Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop. The August block assignment includes three pretty blocks: Twin Star, Split Nine Patch, and Birds in the Air.


I thoroughly enjoyed making the Twin Star block. Fabric selection for this block was a snap. Once I decided to fussy cut a pink flower from Lella Boutique’s Nest collection, all that was left was to select two complementary blush prints for the star points. To add visual interest, I used the pale gray text print from Corey Yoder’s Strawberry Jam ...

Summer Moon QAL: July blocks from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I’m popping in today to share my July blocks for the Summer Moon Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop. We’re only three months into the quilt along, so there is plenty of time for you to join! The July assignment included Bear's Track, Buzzard Roost and Crown of Thorns blocks.


For the Bear’s Track block, I pulled four robin’s egg blue prints from Lella Boutique’s Nest collection to make the paws, and anchored them with a little green center square. Isn’t that about the prettiest shade of blue you have ...

Summer Moon: a sampler book by Carrie Nelson from Carried Away Quilting


Last week I received a lovely surprise in my mailbox. The kind folks at It’s Sew Emma/Fat Quarter Shop sent me a copy of Carrie Nelson’s new book, “Summer Moon,” which features a beautiful and unique sampler quilt.

The sampler quilt is comprised of 24 blocks that are each made in three different sizes: 5”, 6 1/2” and 8” unfinished. The book includes setting ...
