Sewing Projects for a Full Heart (and Bobbin)!

When someone is covered in a cozy, warm quilt, they are reminded that someone sat at a sewing machine for hours, carefully piecing and stitching, with them in mind. A handmade table runner sitting on the family dining table shows a loving home to all who feast there. To be gifted a wall hanging is a reminder that they are loved by its maker.

Valentine’s day is one of the best holidays to make for because it’s about love and we LOVE to make! Here are some sweet as pie project ideas:

Bud Bouquet Quilt

My favorite bouquet wasn’t roses or orchids; it was a tiny bunch of clover blossoms gathered by a very special four-year-old. (Oh, how I wished those flowers could last forever!)

This week Jenny is stitching up a bouquet that will bloom for years to come. She starts with simple 9-patches made of half-square triangles—nothing too fancy. But just wait! The real magic happens when they’re set on point! Click HERE to watch!

Turn Style Quilt

Have you ever watched a subway turnstile as folks pass through one by one? It spins and spins with an easy rhythm, almost like a sewing needle. Click. Click. Click. 

This week Jenny is working on a Turn Style quilt inspired by Me & My Sister’s Ground Cover quilt. From quick and easy quarter-square triangles to simple hourglass blocks, this pretty quilt is as effortless as a spinning turnstile. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
