I always thought the daisy was such a sweet and simple flower, but it turns out I was wrong! The daisy isn’t a flower at all; it’s two flowers! The first flower is made up of the long, white petals we love to pluck while reciting, “He loves me. He loves me not.” The second flower is the cheery yellow center. I guess you could say every bloom is its own bouquet!
In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny combines simple white charms with a pretty roll of 2.5 inch strips, and the results are as sweet as a field of daisies!

When I’m laying out a quilt, I try my best to follow the pattern. But when I’m asked, for example, to turn every third block one clockwise quarter turn, I always end up with a couple flying geese headed the wrong direction! What can I say? Some of us are directionally challenged!
If you struggle too, the One Direction Quilt is calling your name! Every single one of these adorable arrows points right to the center of the quilt. No left or right to remember. You just can’t fail! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Have you heard? Hamilton is covered in ice. Literally! The streets are slick as a hockey rink, and the windows are obscured by a thick layer of wavy ice. I can’t get into my car because the doors are sealed shut, but even if I could, I’m sure I’d just slide my way into a ditch!
No one wishes for freezing rain, but when it comes, we hunker down and try to stay toasty under a mountain of sewing projects. This week Jenny is stitching up a new disappearing block. It’s a simple 9-patch with a couple of snowballed corners thrown in for kicks.
