Sometimes I have to make a quilt just because my heart tells me so. I bet that’s true for a lot of you as well. It doesn’t matter if I’m too busy or have other sewing projects that should be a priority, that desire to sew up a particular pattern with treasured fabrics is too strong to ignore.  And that’s how it was for me recently, when I stitched up the Barn Style pattern by Lella Boutique using some of my favorite fabrics.

Another Lakeside Star quilt! from Carried Away Quilting


My second Lakeside Star quilt is finished and ready to be gifted to a lovely bride and groom-to-be, our beautiful niece and her handsome fiancé! I hope this quilt will add the warm reminder of family love and support to their home. We live several states apart and don’t get to see them often. It’s nice to think of them snuggled together under this cozy quilt, watching a movie or sharing their day’s experiences.
