“What should we make next?” When you’re whipping up a new quilt every week, you look for project ideas everywhere you go! This inspiration for this week’s quilt came from one of our favorite sources: the magnificent Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles.
Spring Twist is a quick and easy fence rail pattern with one easy twist: snowballed corners that form perfect little pinwheels! Sew easy! Sew pretty! Thank goodness for good friends! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Legend tells of a restaurant patron who refused his fried potatoes so many times, the chef just ‘bout lost his mind. “Too mushy. Too thick. Make them again!” demanded the diner.
In frustration, the chef cut paper-thin slices of potato and fried ‘em to a crisp. Much to his surprise, the customer was delighted, and the potato chip was born! What a deliciously happy accident!
This week, Jenny experienced her own “happy accident,” and the result was the Tilted Nine Patch Quilt. It’s not the quilt she set out to make, but it sure is a beauty! Grab your favorite pack of 2.5 inch strips and click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Jenny is a whiz at quick and easy quilt blocks, but that’s not the only trick up her sleeve! This week she’s using 2.5-inch strips of fabric to whip up an impressive Jelly Roll Rug!
This gorgeous rug can be made big or small—even placemat size. And, of course, you can choose fabric to match any decor. In short, this may just be the perfect project! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
There’s a pretty big football game this week. Best of the season, they say. And while I do enjoy a touchdown or two, those yards of turf just can’t compare to a yard of brand new quilting fabric! So while those football stars are racing to the endzone, I’ll be stitchin’ up a team of my own all stars!
The All Stars quilt is based on a design by Jenny’s cute husband, Ron. It’s a quick, modern pattern that makes use of two of our favorite precuts: 10 inch squares and 2.5 inch strips.
Ever heard of diamond rain? Sounds impossible, but lightning storms on Saturn produce thousands of little sparklers every single year! And here on earth, we can get some pretty remarkable precipitation, too. In 1887, giant snowflakes fell on a Montana ranch; one was measured at a whopping 15 inches! It may seem impossible, but “impossible” things happen every day!
This week Jenny is whipping up a little miracle of her own with the River Log Cabin Quilt. Because, while it sounds impossible, when you put together 1.5 inch strips and 2.5 inch strips in just the right way, all those straight lines transform into curves!
