This week’s new quilt combines two classic blocks, so please be sure to gather all the supplies necessary for both. (You might want to grab a pen. I’ll wait.)
Are you ready? Ok, in order to build an entire quilt’s worth of nine patches and hourglasses, you’re going to need: 10-inch squares. That’s it! The end! Finito!
What do you do to relax? Do put together jigsaw puzzles or work on crosswords? Do you enjoy pulling weeds or folding laundry? We all have our quirks, but the truth is, creating order out of chaos is the most satisfying feeling in the world. It’s what draws us to quilting and keeps us coming back for more.
This week’s new quilt is made with stacks and stacks of little pieces. This is the kind of project that just melts away my stress. Stitch by stitch, block by block, those pieces come together into a beautiful quilt and I am left feeling peaceful and accomplished and pretty darn proud of myself!
Nine patches are a fun and simple block but turning it on point creates a whole new look to a gorgeous pattern. Click the above image to watch how this nine patch gets turned on point!
We live in a culture obsessed with youth. Everywhere I look I’m bombarded with advertisements to plump this, tuck that, camouflage, conceal, and reverse all signs of aging. But I’ve got a secret. Sometimes getting older is awesome. Super awesome.
I still remember the moment I discovered my first gray hair. I had been dreading that day my entire adult life, but as I stared at that colorless strand, I noticed how it sparkled in the sunlight. I kid you not, my hair was sparkling like a magical fairy princess! Sparkling!
I’ve yet to meet a person who doesn’t enjoy a good sparkle, and whether or not you’re a fan of silver hair, I know you’re going to fall head over heels for today’s new tutorial, the Sparkle Quilt! Here’s what you need to make this beautiful quilt!
