My favorite bouquet wasn’t roses or orchids; it was a tiny bunch of clover blossoms gathered by a very special four-year-old. (Oh, how I wished those flowers could last forever!)
This week Jenny is stitching up a bouquet that will bloom for years to come. She starts with simple 9-patches made of half-square triangles—nothing too fancy. But just wait! The real magic happens when they’re set on point! Click HERE to watch!
Twinkling in the distant night sky is a white dwarf star with a core of pure diamond. Think of it! 10 billion trillion trillion carats, just floating around in outer space! (I’m suddenly feeling an inclination for space travel…) So beautiful, and yet, so out of reach!
The Diamond Dance Quilt, however, is accessible to even the least experienced quilter! This project is quick, easy, and so much fun! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Today is the winter solstice—the shortest day of the year. Jack Frost has officially arrived with his chilly days and long, icy nights. But believe it or not, there are a few flowers that manage to thrive in the midst of such inhospitable weather!
English primrose brightens even the grayest winter day. Pansies add a splash of color against the pure white snow. But my favorite blooms of all are found on Jenny’s new Flower Glass quilt. These simple petals and hourglass blocks will keep you cozy all winter long!
All the quilts of my childhood had solid backs. Some pink, some red, some navy blue – all plain as plain. For years, it felt like the back of the quilt didn’t really matter at all. But when I started to notice pretty florals, sassy stripes, and exciting colors, I started seeing quilt backing as one more opportunity to let my creativity shine!
This week’s new project, the Sidekick Quilt, is a quick and easy pattern based on the friendship star. It’s cute and colorful, but just wait ‘til you see the backing fabric! It’s bold, fabulous, and anything but boring! Click HERE to watch the tutorial.
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!
