Jitterbug Quilt Tutorial

Jitterbug Quilt Tutorial

Learn to make this fun Jitterbug Quilt!

The Jitterbug was one of the most popular dances of the swing era, but how did it get such a funny name? Turns out “jitterbug” is just a combo of two cute little words: jitter and bug. But put ‘em together and you’ve got a name worth remembering!

This week we’re working on the Jitterbug Quilt. And, like it’s namesake, it’s based on two simple little elements: the 4-patch and the half-square triangle. Combine those quilting powerhouses with an extra dose of creativity, and you’ve got a quilt as swanky as the swingingest jitterbug on the dance floor! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Learn to make this Two Way Street Quilt with Jenny!

On August 14, 2010, a massive traffic jammed formed on the China National Highway. The tangle of cars was so gridlocked, drivers were inching forward at a pace of just over a half mile per day. It took a week and a half for traffic to pick up again, and some folks were stuck on that road for five whole days!

Jenny has the best way of teaching fun, new , quilting techniques!

Today’s new quilt, Two Way Street, may resemble a traffic jam with cars facing every which way, but this block is so quick and easy, you’ll breeze through at full-speed! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
