When you give the gift of flowers, you’re sending a message – so choose carefully!
Sunflowers symbolize friendship, red roses represent romantic love, and bells of Ireland spread good luck. But a potful of petunias or orange lilies? Well, they pretty much say, “I hate your stinkin’ guts.”
This week Jenny is stitching up a wonderful bouquet of fabric flowers, and you don’t have to worry! The gift of a quilt practically shouts, “Love ya!” Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
If you ever spot Jenny out and about, take a look around. There’s sure to be a tall, handsome fellow somewhere in your midst. (Sorry, ladies – he’s taken!) Ron Doan, aka Mr. Jenny, is Jenny’s #1 fan and devoted husband. Over the years, Ron has developed quite the talent for quilt design, and this week he is in the studio with Jenny to demonstrate his latest creation, the Amplified Quilt.
This quilt is a modern half square triangle pattern that is as eye-catching as it is easy. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
All the quilts of my childhood had solid backs. Some pink, some red, some navy blue – all plain as plain. For years, it felt like the back of the quilt didn’t really matter at all. But when I started to notice pretty florals, sassy stripes, and exciting colors, I started seeing quilt backing as one more opportunity to let my creativity shine!
This week’s new project, the Sidekick Quilt, is a quick and easy pattern based on the friendship star. It’s cute and colorful, but just wait ‘til you see the backing fabric! It’s bold, fabulous, and anything but boring! Click HERE to watch the tutorial.
The first time I bought a car that locked with a keychain remote, I felt pretty special. That is, until that newfangled remote stopped working.
But after an accidental trip through the washer and dryer, my key fob came back to life, locking and unlocking the car doors again and again. Lock. Unlock. Lock. Unlock. Finally, I was forced to remove the batteries.
I learned a lesson that day. Sometimes simple is best. Who needs a fancy remote when an old-fashioned key and keyhole will get the job done right every time?
The Keyhole Quilt is as simple as it gets, and it’s a beautiful way to use your favorite roll of 2.5-inch strips. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
How patriotic are you? Do you plant your petunias in bold stripes of red, white, and blue? Does your doorbell chime to the tune of Yankee Doodle? Is your station wagon decked out like a 4th of July parade float all year long?
This week we’re paying tribute to Old Glory with a beautiful patriotic quilt. Stars and Stripes is a quick strip project that was inspired by the beautiful “United” Tonga Batiks by Timeless Treasures. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
