Social distance. It’s a new phrase – and a new way of life – for most of us. But I think it’s a bit of a misnomer. Because even though we’re separated physically, we aren’t really alone! From video chats with grandkids to friendly greetings from across the street, there are a million ways to connect every day, and I’m sure grateful for that! One little girl spent hours decorating the sidewalk with chalk. She drew a hopscotch that [...]

They don’t make them like they used to. Many of us were fortunate enough to have learned the art of quilting from our ancestors; parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles have long since been the best teachers to pass on the gift that is quilting. They stitched differently, as limited resources required more time and perseverance with each block. Each stitch was made with love though and the quilts survived, being passed down as family heirlooms for generations to come. [...]
The Irish Chain is one of my favorite classic quilts, but Jenny’s Irish Change is even better! This quilt was designed for pretty fabric.

The secret? All those criss crossing “chains” are made with simple strip sets!

Everyone has their own journey when it comes to quilting. Many of us were fortunate enough to have quilting passed down to us traditionally from our family members; learning the basic motions of cutting and sewing from the careful hands of those who once had to quilt from necessity. Others however are just finding their path. The technological boom of quilting videos and tutorials that has developed within the last decade has allowed many people to acquire skills which [...]
My favorite bouquet wasn’t roses or orchids; it was a tiny bunch of clover blossoms gathered by a very special four-year-old. (Oh, how I wished those flowers could last forever!) This week Jenny is stitching up a bouquet that will bloom for years to come. She starts with simple 9-patches made of half-square triangles—nothing too fancy. But just wait! The real magic happens when they’re set on point! Click HERE to watch!
