It all began with a single quilt block. Just one lonely old block whose story had long been forgotten. Luckily, Jenny’s a real sucker for antiques, and she fell in love in an instant! And right away, she knew she wanted to recreate it.
She carefully pieced a big pile of copycat blocks, stitched ‘em together, and was delighted to discover a secondary block appear out of nowhere! Learn how to make this pretty quilt using half square triangles made out of strip sets!
Snails come in an amazing variety of sizes. One species is so massive, its shell can be used as a trumpet. Another is tiny enough to fit through the eye of a needle with room to spare!
Just like a real snails, a Snail Trail block can be big or small. And with Jenny’s brand new method (courtesy of quilting friend, Kathy), they’re easier than ever to make! Whether you use 5-inch or 10-inch squares, this easy block is fun and swirly as can be!
Pixel quilting is all the rage, but it’s really not a new technique. In 1931, the Kansas City Star published a mosaic elephant pattern as a tribute to a beloved elephant at the local zoo.
The next year, a companion quilt was released. This one featured a pixelated donkey named Giddap. Both are cute as can be, and so easy to put together!
