We live in a culture of chaos. Too many clothes. Too many knick-knacks. Too much clutter and busyness and excess. At times it feels like all that “extra” is clogging up my life, distracting me from the things that really matter. Sometimes, my soul just yearns for a little simplicity.
This week Jenny has teamed up with Rob from Man Sewing to teach us how to make The Block and Strip Quilt. I know you’re going to love how easy it is to put together this refreshingly simple pattern, and if you’re not yet familiar with Rob’s electric personality, you’re in for a real treat!
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!
We’re making MSQC history here! For the first time ever, you can buy a kit to make the exact quilt that Jenny makes in the tutorial (excluding backing fabric).

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.
Make sure to watch the tutorial so you can learn how to make your own Diamonds Squared Quilt!
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!
