New Friday Tutorial and Fabric Feature: Diamonds Squared Quilt featuring Uppercase Fabric!

MSQC New Tutorial on the Blog!


50 light years from earth sits a white dwarf star with a core of pure diamond. Think of it! 10 billion trillion trillion carats, just floating around in outer space! (I’m suddenly feeling an inclination for space travel!) So beautiful, and yet, so out of reach! This new tutorial, however, features many diamonds that are easily accessible to even the least experienced quilter! This is one block that is as quick to make as it is pretty! It’s called Diamonds Squared and we know you’re just going to love it.

This tutorial features the beautiful Uppercase 2.5″ Strips by Janine Vangool for Windham Fabrics. Aren’t they gorgeous? They’re so bright and happy that they give the perfect pop to this quilt! In fact, we love it so much that we’ve teamed up with Janine to do a little fabric feature and giveaway!


The Uppercase Fabric line was inspired by Uppercase Magazine, which was founded by Janine Vangool and is operated by her and her family. The rich, saturated colors paired with neutrals brings this line full circle for any project that might need some happy, positive energy. Janine used small scale monocromatic prints in her designs to add depth to each color that can be used as a more dynamic alternative to solid color fabrics. If you can’t tell, we love it!

So, today we’re giving away a 1-year subscription to Uppercase Magazine (North American addresses only), 3 single copies of Uppercase Magazine (North American Addresses only), as well as a beautiful Uppercase Fabric Bundle! Find out the ways to enter below (All entry options are optional, but you have to choose at least one to enter!) That means there will be FIVE winners!!

Introducing Vintage Kitchen from Riley Blake

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s a place for family and friends to gather, chat about their day, laugh and spend some good old fashioned quality time together. A place where memories are made and never forgotten. Nobody wants to spend time in a drab, boring kitchen or an ultra modern one where you’re afraid to make a mess.  Ah, but what about a vintage kitchen? One filled with color and fun patterns everywhere. The energy is electric in a vintage kitchen, which makes it an excellent heart of the home! <3
