Pixel quilting is all the rage, but it’s really not a new technique. In 1931, the Kansas City Star published a mosaic elephant pattern as a tribute to a beloved elephant at the local zoo.

The next year, a companion quilt was released. This one featured a pixelated donkey named Giddap. Both are cute as can be, and so easy to put together!

Take a peek at a U.S. map, and you’ll notice that Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico are laid out like a giant four patch with perfectly nested seams and lovely 90-degree angles. The Four Corners Monument marks the spot where they all come together. It’s the only place in the country where you can stand in one spot and be in 4 states at once!

Spoiler alert! Romeo and Juliet were doomed from the start. It’s right there in the 6th line of the play: “Warning! They’re totally gonna die. Everything ends in a giant ball of disaster.” (I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist.) Those star-crossed lovers never had a chance!

Candy Twist Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

One hundred years ago, Halloween was more about tricks than treats. Instead of trekking door to door to collect candy, kids spent the evening pulling pranks on their neighbors. A little doorbell ditching here, a little property damage there. Frankly, I say bring on the sweets!
