One hundred years ago, Halloween was more about tricks than treats. Instead of trekking door to door to collect candy, kids spent the evening pulling pranks on their neighbors. A little doorbell ditching here, a little property damage there. Frankly, I say bring on the sweets!
Everything is more fun with candy – even quilts! This week Jenny is stitching up a delicious Candy Twist Quilt.
Watch for a bonus Halloween table runner at the end, and you’re going to love it!
The most popular sandwich cookie in the world is now available in a brand new flavor: cookies and cream. Now, let’s take a moment to remember that cookies and cream tastes like … sandwich cookies. That’s right, the cookie masters have reinvented the sandwich cookie by adding more sandwich cookie. It sure sounds funny, but folks are going wild for them!
This week Jenny is working on a churn dash pattern. The churn dash is a great old block, but we’ve figured out a way to make it even cuter: add more churn dashes! So we’ve wrapped our churn dash blocks in an extra layer of churn dashes. It’s churn dash mania, and we love it!
On August 14, 2010, a massive traffic jammed formed on the China National Highway. The tangle of cars was so gridlocked, drivers were inching forward at a pace of just over a half mile per day. It took a week and a half for traffic to pick up again, and some folks were stuck on that road for five whole days!
Today’s new quilt, Two Way Street, may resemble a traffic jam with cars facing every which way, but this block is so quick and easy, you’ll breeze through at full-speed! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Many years ago, Jenny took her very first quilt class. Even though she was already an accomplished seamstress, quilting seemed a bit daunting. During that class, she learned how to make a log cabin. And when she realized how simple and versatile that little block can be, a fire was lit! Before the class finished, Jenny had completed 12 quilts – and she’s never stopped quilting!
Today’s new quilt is a fun variation of a log cabin quilt!

A windmill is the ultimate symbol of optimism. It takes a nuisance like persistent wind and turns it into a source of power. And the harder the wind blows, the more good it does! If only all our troubles could be transformed so easily!
Today’s new quilt celebrates the happy, dependable work of the windmill. Jenny uses a Simple Wedge Template to make it a quick and easy project.
