With a little creativity and a touch of courage, quilting can be a real “choose-your-own-adventure” experience. What happens if I rotate half my blocks? What if I switch out the white background for a bright solid? What if I use a 10-inch square instead of a 5-inch? Before you know it, you have created a totally unique quilt. You are an artist! You are an inventor! You are AMAZING!!!
Today Jenny will guide us through the Whimsical Shoofly Quilt, a simple variation of the shoofly or churn dash. You’ll be amazed to see what a difference a small change can make – and maybe you’ll be inspired to make a few changes of your own!

Don’t you love Flying Geese quilts? They are so beautiful that we just had to look for some other fun ways to feature them in quilt patterns! This Tangled Geese quilt block is created by adding snowballed corners to 2.5″ strips. The result is so fun!

Confession time! What sends shivers of fear down your spine? Ghosts and goblins? Things that go bump in the night? Handing the car keys to a 16-year-old for his first solo drive? Truth be told, I used to be afraid of applique. Too time consuming. Too exact. Too labor-intensive. Right? Wrong!!!
Today we’re sharing an applique method so quick and easy, you’ll be whipping through the Inside Out Quilt at lighting speed! These appliqued blocks are neatly finished with a teeny zig-zag stitch, and boy oh boy are they cute!

There truly is no place like home. At the end of a long, busy day, I love to crawl under the covers and snuggle up in the familiar coziness of my very own bed.
No matter how hectic it is outside, I always feel peaceful in my home. It’s not fancy, but it’s mine. Today’s new quilt, Flying Home, brings to mind the simple beauty of my very favorite safe haven: home.

There’s something so fantastic about the lifecycle of a butterfly. He starts his journey as an inconsequential little caterpillar with a huge appetite. After weeks of glorious gluttony, he takes one massive, cozy nap. And then? He wakes up magnificently elegant and graceful! Why doesn’t that work for me? Just once in my life I’d love to binge all day on a quart of rocky road, take an epic nap on the sofa, and wake up as glorious as a butterfly!
For now, I’ll settle for the super-easy Butterfly Blossom Quilt. This quilt is incredibly beautiful, and it’s a breeze to make!
This sweet pattern is made with 2 charm packs and the MSQC Periwinkle Template. Isn’t it so cute?
