Bouquets of roses. Long walks on the beach. Beautiful lines of poetry. There are plenty of ways to sweep a girl off her feet, but if you ask me, Jenny’s son Josh has romance down to an art. He teaches his dates to quilt!
A while back, Josh and his special lady friend stopped by the Sewing Center. They selected a few pretty scraps and stitched up a fun new star block. Talk about a night to remember! Click HERE to learn how to make Josh’s Star!
It’s always fun to see blocks made into other fabrics so here is Josh’s Star made from a Sycamore Layer Cake by Jan Patek for Moda Fabrics. To get this Layer Cake click HERE.

In this week’s tutorial, Jenny is working on a tricky old block. Of course, with precuts and a few tips and tricks, you’ll have no trouble whipping up this pretty quilt!
It’s called Snail Trail, but those fantastic swirls remind me of ocean waves, whirligigs, or swirling tornadoes. This quilt is so full of movement and energy, no one would ever guess how easy it is to put together!
And! To make things even more easy-peasy, our team has put together an awesome, printable, PDF file that breaks down exactly how to cut up your 10″ squares! How great is that!? Click the Diagram above or below for the full print out!

The Drunkard’s Path is a classic block and we have found a fun and simple spin to create a whole new block. We use all the same items as we would in a classic Drunkard’s Path but we have just added a couple 2.5″ squares.

During the Middle Ages, many people were unable to read or write, so it became common to sign important documents with nothing more than the letter X. (Frankly, when I was on the 45th signature of my mortgage contract, I would have gladly brought back that tradition! My hand still aches just thinking about it!)
Today we’re stitching up the All My X’s Quilt. These x’s are just as pretty as they are simple, and they come together so quickly! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

I grew up loving Anne of Green Gables. Even now, Anne’s wisdom follows me wherever I go.
“Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it.”
“I went looking for my dreams outside of myself and discovered, it’s not what the world holds for you, it’s what you bring to it.”
Today’s new quilt, Kindred Pinwheels, is a beautiful pattern brought to life by Anne of Green Gables fabric by Riley Blake Designs. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
