The most popular sandwich cookie in the world is now available in a brand new flavor: cookies and cream. Now, let’s take a moment to remember that cookies and cream tastes like … sandwich cookies. That’s right, the cookie masters have reinvented the sandwich cookie by adding more sandwich cookie. It sure sounds funny, but folks are going wild for them!
This week Jenny is working on a churn dash pattern. The churn dash is a great old block, but we’ve figured out a way to make it even cuter: add more churn dashes! So we’ve wrapped our churn dash blocks in an extra layer of churn dashes. It’s churn dash mania, and we love it!
With a little creativity and a touch of courage, quilting can be a real “choose-your-own-adventure” experience. What happens if I rotate half my blocks? What if I switch out the white background for a bright solid? What if I use a 10-inch square instead of a 5-inch? Before you know it, you have created a totally unique quilt. You are an artist! You are an inventor! You are AMAZING!!!
Today Jenny will guide us through the Whimsical Shoofly Quilt, a simple variation of the shoofly or churn dash. You’ll be amazed to see what a difference a small change can make – and maybe you’ll be inspired to make a few changes of your own!

I love a little shower of rain. It’s just so peaceful to sit at my sewing machine and listen to the gentle pitter-pat of raindrops on the window. It’s too wet to work in the yard, too wet to run to the grocery story, and way too wet to cut the grass. I’ve racked my brain and come to the conclusion that on a rainy day, the best use of my time is quilting! (Curiously, I’ve come to the same conclusion about sunny days, snowy days, and even plagues-of-locust days.)
This week we’re learning how to make The Spring Rain Quilt. It’s the perfect project for days that are too drizzly (or too hot, or too windy…). Click on the button below to watch the tutorial and get everything you need to make your own Spring Rain Quilt!
