Quick! Gather your scraps! We’re making crumb quilts today!
When you truly love fabric – and I KNOW you do – you simply can’t toss away those beautiful bits and pieces; you have to make ‘em into something fabulous! So for this month’s Triple Play quilt tutorial, Jenny and the girls have whipped up 3 great crumb piecing projects.
Jenny’s crumb quilt is framed with a crumb-style piano key border, Natalie’s crumb-pieced Carpenter’s Square comes together just like a charm quilt, and Misty’s Full Circle quilt combines crumb piecing with the classic orange peel.
(I sure hope your scrap bin is full. These projects are so fun, you’ll want to make them all!)
A Round Robin quilt is the sweetest of group projects. It is passed among friends, each adding blocks or borders of their own.
And when it is finished, that quilt represents the talent and creativity of everyone involved. (I get all tingly and sentimental just thinking about it!)
For this month’s Triple Play tutorial, Jenny and the girls stitched up one big Round Robin quilt. They named it Sparkling Stars, and it sure is a beauty!
Jenny built the center with 9-patches and half-square triangle lemoyne stars, Misty added pretty sawtooth star blocks and quarter-square triangles, and Natalie finished it off with a gorgeous pieced border.
Best of all, this quilt was made three different times with three different fabric lines! Click HERE to see them all!
According to British superstition, you’ll avoid head colds all winter long. Even better, each leaf caught brings a full month of luck in the year to come! (If you spot me chasing leaves in the park, don’t be alarmed! I need all the luck I can get!)
In this month’s Triple Play tutorial, the Doan gals are stitching up cozy Autumn quilts based on the Lovely Leaves quilt block. Misty turns charm squares into a giant patchwork leaf, Natalie goes modern with an easy-to-customize layer cake layout, and Jenny’s fall time table runner is perfect for a Thanksgiving feast—she even adds a flying geese border!
