Pony Express Quilt

Pony Express Quilt

Learn to make this creative block using HST and snowballed rectangles!

Pony Express riders began their 2000-mile journey in St Joseph, Missouri. (Just 50 miles from Missouri Star!) They raced across the frontier, delivering mail to Sacramento, California at what was then an incredible speed – 10 days! (Thank goodness we live in the age of instant communication! I love technology!)

 

The Pony Express is an intricate block, but it’s really just half-square triangles and flying geese, so you’ll have it stitched up faster than the Pony Express itself! Click HERE to watch the tutorial.

New Friday Tutorial: The Quartered Stripes Quilt

New Friday Tutorial: The Quartered Stripes Quilt

I'll never look at striped fabric the same again! Love this Quartered Stripes Quilt Tutorial on YouTube!

Fabric is amazing. With certain quilt patterns, it’s like it has magical powers. Take the stripe, for example. Stripes have the power to make people look taller or wider… and when you put them together as demonstrated in this week’s new quilting tutorial, you get a beautiful, almost 3-dimensional effect! It’s the Quartered Stripes Quilt and you’ll never look at stripes the same way again!

New Friday Tutorial: The Spring Rain Quilt

New Friday Tutorial: The Spring Rain Quilt

Make a Spring Rain Quilt with this Step-by-Step Video Tutorial with Jenny Doan!

I love a little shower of rain. It’s just so peaceful to sit at my sewing machine and listen to the gentle pitter-pat of raindrops on the window. It’s too wet to work in the yard, too wet to run to the grocery story, and way too wet to cut the grass. I’ve racked my brain and come to the conclusion that on a rainy day, the best use of my time is quilting! (Curiously, I’ve come to the same conclusion about sunny days, snowy days, and even plagues-of-locust days.)
