Every year as the days get shorter, a new star shows up to signal the arrival of fall. Fomalhaut, also known as the lonely star of Autumn, is so far away that the starlight we’ll enjoy this fall had to start its journey to Earth way back in 1991! Thank goodness that the Autumn Stars in today’s new quilt can be completed in just a few minutes!
Here’s what you need to make this stunning quilt!

50 light years from earth sits a white dwarf star with a core of pure diamond. Think of it! 10 billion trillion trillion carats, just floating around in outer space! (I’m suddenly feeling an inclination for space travel!) So beautiful, and yet, so out of reach! This new tutorial, however, features many diamonds that are easily accessible to even the least experienced quilter! This is one block that is as quick to make as it is pretty! It’s called Diamonds Squared and we know you’re just going to love it.

This tutorial features the beautiful Uppercase 2.5″ Strips by Janine Vangool for Windham Fabrics. Aren’t they gorgeous? They’re so bright and happy that they give the perfect pop to this quilt! In fact, we love it so much that we’ve teamed up with Janine to do a little fabric feature and giveaway!
The Uppercase Fabric line was inspired by Uppercase Magazine, which was founded by Janine Vangool and is operated by her and her family. The rich, saturated colors paired with neutrals brings this line full circle for any project that might need some happy, positive energy. Janine used small scale monocromatic prints in her designs to add depth to each color that can be used as a more dynamic alternative to solid color fabrics. If you can’t tell, we love it!
So, today we’re giving away a 1-year subscription to Uppercase Magazine (North American addresses only), 3 single copies of Uppercase Magazine (North American Addresses only), as well as a beautiful Uppercase Fabric Bundle! Find out the ways to enter below (All entry options are optional, but you have to choose at least one to enter!) That means there will be FIVE winners!!
Sometimes simple things are the most beautiful: Catching a lacy snowflake on your tongue. The first scoop from a freshly opened jar of peanut butter. That magical moment at the end of the day when you can finally trade your jeans for your favorite stretchy pants (Hooray for elastic waistbands!)
Yep, I’m a big fan of the simple joys in life. That’s why I’m loving this week’s new quilt tutorial. Strips and Four Patches is uncomplicated and gorgeous – what more can you ask for?!

Quilting superstar Amy Barickman from Indygo Junction is here to team up with Jenny for a new tutorial, the Denim Strip Quilt! This is a great quilt for beginners because it looks so much more difficult than it is, so you can show off your skills without pulling your hair out! It doesn’t even require binding (though you could absolutely construct it like a traditional quilt with binding)!
Amy Barickman’s Crossroads Denim fabrics are a dream to work with! They are so soft and come in so many gorgeous colors that you’ll definitely be making a list of all the things you can make with it!
