My favorite bouquet wasn’t roses or orchids; it was a tiny bunch of clover blossoms gathered by a very special four-year-old. (Oh, how I wished those flowers could last forever!)
This week Jenny is stitching up a bouquet that will bloom for years to come. She starts with simple 9-patches made of half-square triangles—nothing too fancy. But just wait! The real magic happens when they’re set on point! Click HERE to watch!
Break out the sequins and polish up your best cuff links! We’re going black tie and feelin’ el-e-gant!
Our new Bow Tie Crisscross is a clever take on the classic bow tie block. Jenny used sleek shades of black and white, but this quilt would look grand with any fabric you choose! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Jenny discovered Daisy & Grace’s quilt-as-you-go hexagons at The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England. She loved ‘em so much, she brought the templates home to Missouri and…everyone went nuts!
These pretty hexies can be sewn by hand or machine, and they come together in a flash! Best of all, the quilt top, batting, backing, and binding are all completed in one fell swoop! Once you’re done, you’re done! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Sorry about that last post…We got so excited about posting it that it went threw without the pictures! So here you go …I present….The Miracle ironing board!
Our shop is getting busy enough and big enough that the girls think I should sew in the back. Natalie made this cute corner for me to sew in. Today I was working on a block and realized I didn’t have an ironing board. A light when on! In the shop we carry a batting called insul-brite. I could make what amounts to a giant pot holder to iron on so…I used 2 pieces of insul brite, and cut the top the size I wanted .
I then cut 2 pieces of fabric just a little larger that the insul brite. I put my fabric right sides together and sewed it up on 3 sides. I then turned the fabric right side out and slid in the insul brite.
I then top stiched all around the edge.
I finished it by machine quilting the top.
Voila, I have a portable ironing board and a really big pot holder!
