Hello friends! I am Jen Van Orman from Heritage Threads and I am excited to share with you all today a BIG quilt with BIG blocks! If you know me well, you know that tiny pieces and tiny blocks will always have my heart, but one cannot resist a big block that packs a big punch. I wanted to showcase the beautiful variation in the new Ombre Confetti Metallic by Vanessa Christensen and these 16″ blocks did a great job of doing just that!
I’m excited to be kicking off this month’s mini quilt theme! This set of three mini quilts is inspired by barn quilts. Make one or all of these fun, quick projects using a single charm pack and some yardage. This speedy project is perfect for that one charm pack you love, but can’t figure out what to do with!
Hello, friends! I’m Kairle Oaks of Handcrafted Goodness. It’s that time of year in Utah when we have had enough of winter and we’re thinking ahead to warm summer days. I’m ready to get outside in the garden and plant flowers that will bring bright, happy colors to my drab landscape.
This fun buzz-saw quilt, made in “Grunge Hits the Spot” by BasicGrey, has me feeling all sorts of warm, sunny thoughts! I made my first buzz-saw quilt many years ago while participating in a small local quilt guild. I’ve revisited this simple traditional block several times, and I’m excited to share it with you today.
