In this week’s tutorial, Jenny is working on a tricky old block. Of course, with precuts and a few tips and tricks, you’ll have no trouble whipping up this pretty quilt!
It’s called Snail Trail, but those fantastic swirls remind me of ocean waves, whirligigs, or swirling tornadoes. This quilt is so full of movement and energy, no one would ever guess how easy it is to put together!
And! To make things even more easy-peasy, our team has put together an awesome, printable, PDF file that breaks down exactly how to cut up your 10″ squares! How great is that!? Click the Diagram above or below for the full print out!

Pony Express riders began their 2000-mile journey in St Joseph, Missouri. (Just 50 miles from Missouri Star!) They raced across the frontier, delivering mail to Sacramento, California at what was then an incredible speed – 10 days! (Thank goodness we live in the age of instant communication! I love technology!)
The Pony Express is an intricate block, but it’s really just half-square triangles and flying geese, so you’ll have it stitched up faster than the Pony Express itself! Click HERE to watch the tutorial.

Garden Stars is a beautifully busy quilt. Big Friendship Stars are accented by itty-bitty Friendship Stars on a crisp, white background. Everywhere you look there’s movement!
Intimidated? Don’t be! Take a closer look and you’ll see nothing more than half-square triangles, 4-patches, and super-simple Friendship Star sashing. Click HERE to learn how to put these basic elements together in your own Garden Stars Quilt!
Butterflies don’t do well in the cold – they require nice, warm temps in order to even move their little bodies. When the air dips down below 60 degrees or so, they’re destined to stay put, hoping for toastier weather.
I must admit, after weeks of ice and snow, I’m feeling quite a kinship with those delicate-winged dearies. But rather than crawling under the covers to wait out the winter, I plan to pass the time working on the beautiful Strip Butterflies Quilt! Click HERE to learn how to make your own!
