When Henry Ford implemented the assembly line, he cut the production time of the Model T from twelve hours to just two and a half! The car was the same. The parts were the same. But putting it together assembly-style was so much faster!
The same is true in quilting! The Diamond Terrace quilt is made of dozens of little pieces, but they come together lickety-split with chain piecing! Click HERE to learn how to make this quick and easy strip quilt!
Social distance. It’s a new phrase – and a new way of life – for most of us. But I think it’s a bit of a misnomer. Because even though we’re separated physically, we aren’t really alone! From video chats with grandkids to friendly greetings from across the street, there are a million ways to connect every day, and I’m sure grateful for that!
One little girl spent hours decorating the sidewalk with chalk. She drew a hopscotch that stretched from one end of her house to the other. As the neighbors walk by, they can’t help but hop their way through that ‘scotch. It’s the little things that bring us together, even when we’re apart!

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!
The town square is a gathering place. Here in Hamilton, we get together at Thanksgiving time to light up the Christmas display and welcome Santa Claus to town. During the summer we enjoy movies under the stars. And every September we invite the whole world to join us for our annual Birthday Bash and JC Penney Days celebration. These traditions bring us together as a community; we become friends as well as neighbors. Of course, we always bring a quilt or two for coziness!
Today Jenny is working on the Town Square quilt. This is a quick, easy pattern that is perfect for neighborhood adventures. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
