I’m so excited, I finished my Rail Fence Quilt. It’s super scrappy, super bright and fun, and it’s the first thing I quilted on my new (to me) Grace Frame.
I quilted pebbles all over it. Here it is all washed and wrinkly. A quilt isn’t finished until it’s all washed in wrinkly (IMHO),
The fabrics I used on the front are Geofabulous by Maude Asbury for Blend Fabrics. Aren’t they beautiful? You can still win a 10 FQ bundle of them by making just one Rail Fence block by Monday night. 😉
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!

My Modern Stars Quilt with matchstick quilting was my entry into QuiltCon one year. It wasn’t accepted, and I’m okay with that. I’m still trying to figure out what modern quilting is! I think the most modern thing about this quilt is the matchstick quilting… it’s straight line quilting to an extreme! Here are my tips for doing straight line quilting 4 different ways.
Years down the road who will remember who made that quilt? Who did they make it for? And when? You might not even remember.
Plus if you decide to show a quilt, it will definitely need a label to ensure you get it back. Quilt labels are easy to make and there are lots of different ways. It’s basically a piece of fabric with information on it that is attached to the back of the quilt, usually in a bottom corner.
Sew a beautiful Carpenter’s Star Quilt Pattern! The Carpenter’s Star is a traditional quilt design that uses half square triangles. This simple and free quilt pattern from SewCanShe is a medallion quilt that has the Carpenter’s Star at the center…
Earlier this year Fabricworm sent me some of their delicious organic cotton and I knew just the fun little project for it. Jen from New Green Mama had recently come out with a new tutorial – the instructions were perfectly…
The Huddle Quilt is a fast and easy medallion quilt pattern that’s perfect for large prints because it makes them the focal point. Plus there is plenty of negative space to let the eye enjoy your favorite fabrics even more.
Congratulations on the new machine, Caroline! Love those pebbles! Your finished quilt is so pretty!
Thank you Lorna! You are too sweet. 🙂
