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!
Everything is more fun with candy – even quilts! This week Jenny is stitching up a delicious Candy Twist Quilt.
Watch for a bonus Halloween table runner at the end, and you’re going to love it!
Fun fact: The cupcake was originally named for its super-simple recipe: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, and 4 eggs. No pinch. No dash. No hand-crafted vanilla or truffles foraged under a full moon. Just 6 cups & a handful of eggs! Easy peasy!
This week Jenny uses Moda’s Cupcake Mix® Recipe 4 to whip up an easy batch of tiny blocks just as sweet as real cupcakes. Click HERE to learn how to make this pretty quilt!
We love working with 5″ squares and the simplicity of snowballing them really adds a fun look to your blocks. We hope you enjoy this mini tutorial on the Roundabout Quilt.
On August 14, 2010, a massive traffic jammed formed on the China National Highway. The tangle of cars was so gridlocked, drivers were inching forward at a pace of just over a half mile per day. It took a week and a half for traffic to pick up again, and some folks were stuck on that road for five whole days!
Today’s new quilt, Two Way Street, may resemble a traffic jam with cars facing every which way, but this block is so quick and easy, you’ll breeze through at full-speed! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla. Whether you are making basic cupcakes or a temperamental chocolate souffle, you’ll probably start with the same simple ingredients. The magic is in how you put ‘em together!
Today’s new quilt is a lovely pattern with intricate criss-crosses and circles. No one will ever guess that it’s just made up of simple bow tie blocks! It’s all in how they’re put together! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
