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.
On Saturday, May 19, the eyes of the world were fixed on the royal wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry and his lovely American bride, Meghan Markle. But my eyes? They were fixed on that veil!
It was 16.5 feet of flowing silk tulle with hand-embroidered flowers all along the edge: California poppy to represent Meghan’s home, wintersweet to represent the home of her prince, and flowers for each of the 53 countries in the Commonwealth. As you can imagine, it took hundreds of hours to stitch that garden of silk and organza blooms. And since they were working with such delicate, white silk tulle, the veil’s creators paused every 30 minutes to wash their hands. It was truly a masterpiece, but I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
This week’s new quilt, Royal Wedding, is based on the old English Wedding Ring quilt, but it’s so quick and easy, you’ll be well on your way before teatime! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
I just watched Jenny’s Fence Rail Star tutorial, and all I can think is, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
Seriously folks, this quilt is so easy! It’s just strip sets and snowballs, nothing fancy. But somehow, those simple little elements combine to create a gorgeous, intricate pattern of stars and stripes.
Make this one up in red, white, and blue, and you’ll be set for The Fourth of July! 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!
We’ve got a super fun quilt to share with you today. It’s extra special because it happens to be one of Jenny’s very favorites. She even keeps a metal replica of this block on the wall of her sewing studio, so while it’s sometimes known as Sister’s Choice or Father’s Choice, we’re calling our version The Studio Star Quilt. (Yes! Another star quilt! You can never have too many of those!)
All you need is your favorite jelly roll and some yardage to make this gorgeous quilt! We know you’re going to love this one as much as Jenny does!
