Have you ever admired a stained-glass window and thought, “That’d make a great quilt block!”
We quilters find inspiration everywhere we look! We see quilt blocks in the facets of sparkling diamonds. We see quilt blocks in patchwork fields of wheat and corn. And this week’s new quilt was inspired by…a tile floor!
There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, and I’m starting to think there are just as many ways to stitch up a star quilt! 4-patch stars, wonky stars, wedge stars, rhombus stars—the list goes on and on!
This week Jenny is working on the easiest star block of all: Night Sky! This pattern is made up of simple half-square triangles, but it’s just as stunning as a whole host of heavenly sparklers! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Traffic jams can be caused by construction, accidents, or even a herd of cattle. (Wait…does that only happen in Missouri?) But did you know a tractor-driving sheepdog once created a terrible gridlock? So did a runaway robot, a massive Santa balloon, and a 42,000 pound honey spill! I must say, I prefer a Roadblock made of fabric!
This week Jenny is whipping up a Roadblock quilt with strip sets and a handful of easy blocks. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Decking the halls is delightful; putting it all away after Christmas is the pits. But..what if your holiday decor could stretch all the way through winter? I’m here to say, it totally can! Jenny’s Winter Wall Hanging is festive enough for Christmas, but you can leave it up all the way to spring!
This cheery project combines several fun-to-make elements: easy present blocks, little wonky stars, a simple evergreen tree, and a pair of fuzzy-bearded gnomes that will look as stylish in February as they do on December 25th!
Christmastime is full of magic, even for quilters! Don’t believe me? Watch as Jenny transforms a simple pack of green 10-inch squares into TWO gorgeous Christmas tree quilts! If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is!
She starts with a cute modern chevron, but be sure to watch all the way to the end, because (spoiler alert!) just when you think the fun is over, Jenny whips out an adorable pinwheel version as well! When you are finished watching, be sure to comment which tree you like best!
