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!
When Jenny is designing a new quilt, she always asks herself, “What happens if…?”
What happens if she rotates every other block? What happens if she snowballs two corners? What happens if she uses solids instead of prints?
Today’s new quilt came to life when Jenny found out what happens if HALF square triangles are cut in HALF. Click HERE to learn how to make the Half and Half quilt!
The Jitterbug was one of the most popular dances of the swing era, but how did it get such a funny name? Turns out “jitterbug” is just a combo of two cute little words: jitter and bug. But put ‘em together and you’ve got a name worth remembering!
This week we’re working on the Jitterbug Quilt. And, like it’s namesake, it’s based on two simple little elements: the 4-patch and the half-square triangle. Combine those quilting powerhouses with an extra dose of creativity, and you’ve got a quilt as swanky as the swingingest jitterbug on the dance floor! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
