It the unwritten law of the sewing room. All sewists must have a 2-year supply of precuts, a jar of random buttons, a drawerful of thread, and a shoebox filled with adorable waves of rickrack and other fun trims.
Rickrack is a vintage classic. It’s takes me back to favorite rag dolls, homemade aprons, and grandma’s kitchen curtains. Jenny’s new Rickrack Quilt has all that sentimental charm, and it’s a cinch to make, too! Click HERE to learn how to transform your favorite 2.5 inch strips into a zig-zaggy masterpiece!
Jenny is a whiz at quick and easy quilt blocks, but that’s not the only trick up her sleeve! This week she’s using 2.5-inch strips of fabric to whip up an impressive Jelly Roll Rug!
This gorgeous rug can be made big or small—even placemat size. And, of course, you can choose fabric to match any decor. In short, this may just be the perfect project! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
It all began with a single quilt block. Just one lonely old block whose story had long been forgotten. Luckily, Jenny’s a real sucker for antiques, and she fell in love in an instant! And right away, she knew she wanted to recreate it.
She carefully pieced a big pile of copycat blocks, stitched ‘em together, and was delighted to discover a secondary block appear out of nowhere! Learn how to make this pretty quilt using half square triangles made out of strip sets!
There’s a pretty big football game this week. Best of the season, they say. And while I do enjoy a touchdown or two, those yards of turf just can’t compare to a yard of brand new quilting fabric! So while those football stars are racing to the endzone, I’ll be stitchin’ up a team of my own all stars!
The All Stars quilt is based on a design by Jenny’s cute husband, Ron. It’s a quick, modern pattern that makes use of two of our favorite precuts: 10 inch squares and 2.5 inch strips.
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!
