The same tune can be played by a 70-piece orchestra or a honky-tonk band. The melody is identical, but boy, oh boy! It sure sounds different!
The same goes for quilts, you know. This week’s new quilt is classically pretty with the sunflowers of “Jardin Dy Soleil” by Lola Molina for Wilmington Prints. But guess what? If you use solids instead, the pattern instantly becomes fresh and modern! The possibilities are endless! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
In the middle of summer, it’s nice to daydream about a refreshing snowfall. The kind that covers the landscape with a nice layer of the white fluffy stuff, like a decadent cake.
Though stranger things have happened, the chances of a July snowfall in the middle of Missouri are slim to none, so this week Jenny is adding a touch of snowy fun to our newest quilt, the refreshing Snowballed Disappearing Four Patch Quilt!

The Diamond Pavers quilt was made for pretty prints. The blocks are so big and simple, patterns have plenty of space to breathe!
For this quilt, Jenny used Honey Run 10” Stackers by Jill Finley for Penny Rose Designs. It’s an adorable collection filled with bees, florals, and delicate geometrics. (Don’t miss the machine quilting on this one! It’s a bee-utiful honey bee stitch!)
During the 1920s, the Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt pattern took the quilting world by storm! No one could resist those charming little hexagons, but they sure were tricky to put together! Some quilters used English paper piecing; some used y-seams. But no matter the technique, this pattern required yards and yards of time and patience!
This week, Jenny is working on a quick and easy version using our half hexi template.
Take a peek at a U.S. map, and you’ll notice that Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico are laid out like a giant four patch with perfectly nested seams and lovely 90-degree angles. The Four Corners Monument marks the spot where they all come together. It’s the only place in the country where you can stand in one spot and be in 4 states at once!
This week Jenny is working on a Four Corners quilt. Each block brings together 4 pretty corners with a cute little “monument” in the middle.
