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.

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day! A world without sewing machines… I don’t even want to think of it.

Picking out a sewing machine is like buying a new car. There are endless options with varying features and details, all of them will get you from A to B, but the best part is the ride. If you’re going  to log a solid 12 hours on the sewing machine, you better enjoy the ride because everyone knows that the best sewing machine is the one being used!

Which brings us to today’s subject, the Baby Lock Jazz Sewing Machine! Baby Lock Sewing has so graciously offered a machine for us to give away, so we just had to choose the Jazz! It is fast, smooth, and easy to operate.

Here are some of the reasons we love it:

  • 12 inch workspace to the right of the needle… plenty of room for maneuvering large projects
  • Sews up to 1,000 stitches per minute… super fast and super accurate!
  • 28 unique stitches… well-equipped to take your creativity to new heights
  • 9 feet attachments
  • Needle Threader
  • Knee Lifter
  • …and so many more features!

Choose how you want to enter below and we will choose one winner for the sewing machine on Monday, June 19th, at 5pm! We will also choose 6 people to each win two yards of a sewing-themed fabric!

Tea Cakes Quilt

Mona added more Cake Mixes so we had to do another tutorial! Check it out!

In February, Jenny made a Sweet Treats quilt using Cake Mix Recipe 1 by Moda. It was so quick and easy, we just had to try another Recipe!

 

Jenny demonstrates another great Cake Mix Pattern by Moda!

This week Jenny is using Recipe 2 to make Tea Cakes. This block reminds me of a sweet little bear claw, and it comes together in a flash – with minimal waste! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
