I could stare at Jenny’s Good Fortune quilt for a hundred years and never realize…it’s a simple disappearing 9 patch! It’s true! All those cute little pieces are nothing more than a chopped-up 9 patch with one fun twist: a snowballed sashing. And the best part? You can use the leftover fabric to make a 2nd quilt with a whole new layout! (Watch all the way to the end of the tutorial to see how it looks!)
The Framed Pinwheels quilt is a master of disguise. It looks like a tricky maze of itty bitty pieces, but don’t be deceived! This block is simply a disappearing nine patch! Here’s how it works: Whip up a nine patch of charms and lil’ pinwheels. Slice up that block. Shuffle the pieces. Stitch ‘em back together. That’s it! This pattern was inspired by the creative genius of V and Co, and we’re so excited to share it with you!
Break out the sequins and polish up your best cuff links! We’re going black tie and feelin’ el-e-gant! Our new Bow Tie Crisscross is a clever take on the classic bow tie block. Jenny used sleek shades of black and white, but this quilt would look grand with any fabric you choose! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Jenny discovered Daisy & Grace’s quilt-as-you-go hexagons at The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England. She loved ‘em so much, she brought the templates home to Missouri and…everyone went nuts! These pretty hexies can be sewn by hand or machine, and they come together in a flash! Best of all, the quilt top, batting, backing, and binding are all completed in one fell swoop! Once you’re done, you’re done! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

One hundred years ago, Halloween was more about tricks than treats. Instead of trekking door to door to collect candy, kids spent the evening pulling pranks on their neighbors. A little doorbell ditching here, a little property damage there. Frankly, I say bring on the sweets! Everything is more fun with candy – even quilts! This week Jenny is stitching up a delicious Candy Twist Quilt. Watch for a bonus Halloween table runner at the end, and you’re going to [...]
Fun fact: The cupcake was originally named for its super-simple recipe: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, and 4 eggs. No pinch. No dash. No hand-crafted vanilla or truffles foraged under a full moon. Just 6 cups & a handful of eggs! Easy peasy! This week Jenny uses Moda’s Cupcake Mix® Recipe 4 to whip up an easy batch of tiny blocks just as sweet as real cupcakes. Click HERE to learn how to make this [...]
