Kindness Quilt: A gift for a new little blessing from Carried Away Quilting

In 2020 I joined a mystery sew along hosted by Sweet Treasures Quilts called the Kindness Project. The goal was to make a quilt and gift it to someone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. I finished my quilt top and then tucked it away . . . pondering who to gift it to.  I knew the answer would come to my heart, and it did.

I am taking a little license with my choice, but I think you will understand why.  It goes without saying that 2020 was a difficult, sad and challenging year for so many people. But one miraculous blessing came ...

A patriotic Picking Petals by Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting

Please excuse the horn tootin’ going on over here, but I’m quite proud of my pattern Picking Petals. This was one of the first patterns I released when my business was new, and over the years she’s been stitched up by thousands of quilters in a variety of colorways and themes. It’s a quick little quilt to sew, and the results are always lovely. Recently the folks at Sweet Treasures Quilts sewed up a patriotic version, which is sophisticated and striking!

The Kindness Project: Mystery quilt top is complete from Carried Away Quilting

This past weekend, I enjoyed time outdoors in the sunshine with my family. The weather was nice enough to complete some spring yard work and talk to the neighbors . . . from a safe social distance of course. I also found just enough time at the sewing machine to finish my quilt top for The Kindness Project.  

If you had time to read my earlier posts, you'll know that The Kindness Project was a mystery quilt sew-along hosted by Sweet Treasures Quilts. The goal was to sew a quilt to gift to someone affected by the COVID-19 outbreak or someone who ...

Earlier this week I introduced you to The Kindness Project, a mystery quilt sew-along hosted by Sweet Treasures Quilts.

(Check out my earlier post for all the details.)

Sweet Treasures Quilts released the Day 1 block instructions yesterday and the Day 2 block instructions today.  So I'm popping in to show you my progress. I've also included the Sweet Treasures Quilts instruction ...

Kindness Project: a mystery quilt sew along with Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, many of us are turning to sewing as mental health therapy. If we are in a stay-home/stay-safe situation, it’s a great way to keep our minds and hands busy. It’s also a great time to sew service projects.

Terri Staats, shop owner of Sweet Treasures Quilts in Keizer, OR, has come up with a wonderful idea: The Kindness Project, a mystery quilt sew-along in which we all sew a lap quilt that we will gift to someone else! The recipient could be someone who has been hit hard by COVID-19 ...

Holiday themed rag quilt with Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting

I’ve lost count of how many quilts I’ve made over the years, which is probably a good thing. (I might be embarrassed to know the total number.) But in all my years of sewing and quilting, I had never made a rag quilt . . . until recently that is! Armed with a great pattern and some charming holiday themed flannels, my home is ready for Christmas visitors thanks to this new quilt.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, a rag quilt is made by sewing sandwiched blocks (a block top, a piece of batting, and a ...
