Grand Old Flag Quilt Tutorial

04 Jun 2015

With local celebrations, family gatherings, barbeques and fireworks filling the month of July, this beautiful quilt is the perfect reminder of what it's all about! This is the perfect quilt for wrapping around yourself on cool summer evenings, and it's twin size is just right for any kid; from a small child to a big-shot teen. The large, 3-piece blocks mean this quilt can literally be whipped up in an afternoon! I used three different sized stripes to create visual interest.

TBT Modern: Milky Way

28 May 2015

Love this quilt block! When Bonnie told me she was doing a 'Milky Way' quilt block, I had no idea what to expect, but in my mind, I saw stars shining in the night sky. I was thrilled to find that the Milky Way block was a simple variation of the 'Friendship Star' block. Stars!!!
