Don't let those curves keep you from stitching these fun blocks up! They are nice and big, and I have lots of tips to help. If you haven't cleaned [...]

I hope you all are ready to start stitching! Connections is the most detailed of the three blocks in our quilt top, and one of my favorites to make. Once you have everything cut, plan on an hour or so to make each block. For ease of sewing, double check your 1/4" seam allowance before [...]

Tilt-a-Whirl is a perfect introduction to pieced curves. The units are nice and large, so the curve is gentle, and not too challenging to stitch up. I've loved incorporating more curves into my patchwork the last year or so, and hope that you will too! Photo Credit: Martingale/Brent Kane The best part about [...]
