Looking for love this Valentine’s Day? Keep an eye on the birds!
Spot a dove, and you’re destined for a happy, peaceful marriage. Spot a crossbill, and your future spouse is sure to be a grouch.
A sparrow means you’ll marry a pauper, and a goldfinch signals wealth. And if an owl shows up? That’s it! You’ll be single for life!
All things considered, it may be wiser to stay inside and quilt! This week Jenny is using precut charms to stitch up a super-sweet Valentine heart quilt. These half-square triangle hearts are so simple and pretty, it’s sure to be love at first stitch!
Quilters love a classic and there are few blocks more classic than a Disappearing Nine Patch! In this incredibly simple Vintage Jenny tutorial, Jenny Doan demonstrates how to stitch up this easy block using Charm Packs. First you’ll use your 5″ squares of precut quilting fabric to create a giant nine patch (which is just as simple as sewing nine squares together) and after that, you’ll use your ruler and rotary cutter to quarter your middle square. Flip those squares around and just like that, you’ve created a Disappearing Nine Patch!
Needing some more inspiration to create this beautiful block? While the Vintage Jenny tutorial fabrics are no longer in production (just like a classic quilt they’re a product of their time) check out our suggestions below for five current lines of fabric that make this quilt come together with ease!
This is a beautiful blue, cream, and linen white collection that will appeal to the traditional and modern quilter! Willow features classic florals and delicate foliage but also includes soft and subtle geometric prints, like chevron.
And Abraham Lincoln took his cats to live at the White House, where Tabby was fed with a golden fork during a formal dinner with visiting dignitaries, and Dixie was declared to be “smarter than my whole cabinet!”
This month’s Triple Play tutorial is based on Jenny’s Pins & Paws cat quilt block. Natalie whipped up a set of colorful, patchwork cats. Misty stitched miniature charm pack kittens. And Jenny used a Halloween layer cake and placed her cats inside Attic Window frames. We can’t wait to see which quilt you make first!
