Twins have a mysterious connection, even when it comes to quilting!
In 1999, Lisa Norton decided to learn how to quilt, so she signed up for a Block of the Month program. By some strange coincidence, her identical twin Lora Zmak did the exact same thing—1,000 miles away!
It must have been fate, because 21 years later, these talented ladies have their very own company, Material Girlfriends Patterns!
This week, Jenny is stitchin’ up one of their prettiest designs: the quick and easy Confetti Star. It’s an intricate layer cake quilt pattern that comes together with no tricky y-seams. Click HERE to watch the video tutorial!
The periwinkle plant is so resilient, it can survive extreme heat, drought, pests, you name it! Those pretty little flowers just bloom and bloom—even when life isn’t perfect!
So here’s my new motto: be like a periwinkle! Don’t give up if your stitching isn’t straight! Don’t despair if the seams don’t match up perfectly! Just do your best, and have fun creating your own Stretched Periwinkles with Jenny! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
(Psst! Watch all the way to the end for two bonus projects that are made from the scraps!)
A little precision is good for the soul. Neat vacuum lines in the carpet. Deep green rows of meticulously mowed grass. Quilt blocks with well-pressed seams and razor-sharp points. All that order just feels nice.
If you crave a little precision, this week’s new quilt fits the bill! Jenny demonstrates how to achieve perfect points with just a touch of careful trimming. Easy peasy! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
