How to: Clover Mini Quilt Tutorial - Sunday Stitches

I hope you've all had a great week! After last week's Clover Quilt Block tutorial I thought it'd be fun to share another St. Patrick's day tutorial. So, I've created a clover mini quilt. 
This little quilt is fast, a great use of scraps and a fun touch of color for St. Patrick's Day!
This mini will finish at 15" square.

Urban Churndash - Custom Machine Quilting

This week has been really fun! I always say that the one of the very most flattering aspects of my job is machine quilting quilts that are made from patterns that I've designed. There is just something about that, that makes my heart happy.

Joan made this adorable quilt from my Urban Churndash pattern. I had a lot of fun with that quilt, and sadly I hate to admit that I still haven't sewn my blocks together. Right now I'm a little bit jealous of Joan and wish this was my quilt to keep. :)

Think Big Pillow Collective - Equalizer

Hey there! Today I'm excited to share a fun pillow I recently made. 
A few years back I remember meeting a girl online, who lived in the same town as I. I was so excited to realize that she was into more of a modern style quilting and lived so close to me, at that time her blog was Park City Girl. Amy and I quickly became friends and she told me all about the book she was in the process of writing, her first book, Modern Basics. I was able to machine quilt all of the quilts in that book for Amy, I was so flattered. Over the years Amy and I have stayed friends and it's been so much fun to watch her continue to write books, patterns and design fabric. She's so inspiring.

Introducing: Sunday Stitches - A Weekly Sewing Tutorial

Ever since finishing up the 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks the wheels in my head have been turning. The 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks was inspiring to me, I learned a lot and I feel like my creativity really grew. I have wanted to continue the series, or do something like it, but didn't want to burn myself out. After a lot of thinking I have finally found an idea that I think will work great for me. I'm calling this series Sunday Stitches

How to: Clover Quilt Block Tutorial - Sunday Stitches

Filming with Jodie Davis for Quilt It!

Last week I took a little road trip up to Salt Lake. It's about a four hour drive for me, so Brayden (my 2 year old) and I loaded up the car and hit the road.

Romance Quilt Block

I needed to make a quilt block for a little project I'm currently working on, and I don't have a ton of extra time on my hands right now, so I ran to my Piece N Quilt 30 Quilt Block Tutorials and decided to make the Romance block. It's so stinkin' fast and perfect for this project. 
I made the 12" version and then added 3 1/2" borders.
Love how it turned out!

How to: Idle Moments Quilt Block - 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks

You guys, I cannot believe it! The 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks has come to an end! I have shared a new quilt block tutorial here on the blog every single day of 30 days, it has been so much fun for me, I've grown so much creatively and I've been so flattered every single time that you've commented, shared your blocks and your progress. 

I'll be leaving the tutorials here on the blog, so you can refer back to them whenever you'd like. :)

I'm planning to continue this series, but most likely only once or twice a week. I'll be working on details and share about it when I'm ready to get going on more blocks! YAY!

I've also sketched up a sampler quilt using all 30 blocks, I'll share details and more about that tomorrow!

So, the final block is;
Idle Moments
It's a fun happy block, and for some reason the name "Idle Moments" seems quite fitting for a sew-along.

How to: Road to Tennessee Quilt Block - 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks

Today's quilt block is:
Road to Tennessee

This block could be made more than one way, but since I know that a few of you are strictly making these blocks from your stash and your scraps I decided to write the tutorial for this block using half square triangles, that way you won't have any waste like you would with the stitch and flip method.

Custom Machine Quilting - Sharing some Quilting Ideas

Last week I spent a few days custom machine quilting this gorgeous quilt for Laura. Laura asked me to custom quilt this quilt for her, and just have fun with it. The quilt is gorgeous, and I knew it was the perfect quilt to play with and add in some secondary patterns created by the machine quilting.

Wishes Quilt

Yesterday I spent the day doing some edge to edge machine quilting. It seems like it's been a while since I've done edge to edge quilting and it's a nice change. 
I have probably mentioned this before, as much as I love custom machine quilting, and I love to do it, I do think there is a place for edge to edge quilting as well. I always tell my customers, if you're going to "love" the quilt, make it loveable. Sometimes the edge to edge quilting is just perfect for lovable quilts.
