The Heartland Heritage block for March is Star Bright. Star Bright is a cheery block with a few special units to make it a show stopper in any quilt. Those special units are the hourglass sections, and I thought I would share with you my process for accuracy in your quilt. As included in the [...]

Traditionally a Pineapple block is paper-pieced, however, with the Pineapple Trim Tool we are able to piece without the paper and square up as we go! If you haven't seen [...]
