Jolly Little Log Cabins

Hi, Everyone!  It is Jessica Dayon (@jessicadayon) and today I’m here to share an idea on how to incorporate a quilt panel into a quilt block!

Grandma’s Pinwheel Quilt

Hi, Everyone!  It is Jessica Dayon (@jessicadayon) here today sharing a quilt pattern with you using Cheeky by Urban Chiks!  I loved this line as soon as I saw it and knew I wanted to do something special with it.  The pinwheels that I’ve composed this quilt of give off a vintage vibe and really look so pretty in this line.

Trimming the half square triangles in the pattern can be tedious but if you break it down over a few days, it really goes by pretty quickly.  Also, I love that this pattern only uses 3 charm packs from the fabric line plus a little bit of border and you get a pretty big quilt from it!

Building Blocks: 4-from-1 Flying Geese

Hi, Everyone!  It’s Jessica Dayon back in the Bake Shop with you today to share with you how I make 4 at a time flying geese.  When I am learning how to make basic quilting blocks, I like to try a few different ways and practice each of them.  I think that its good to know all the different ways that you can make one block.  This is because one way can work best in different situations.  If you are comfortable making it multiple ways, you can pick which way will suit you best each time you make the block.  There are three ways to make flying geese blocks: 1- with triangles, 2- the stitch and flip method (that uses corner square triangles), and 3- 4 at a time, no waste flying geese.  Today we are focusing on the 4 at a time, no waste method.  Let’s dive in!
