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!

“Ooh, you SHOP for a living? That must be much be so much fun!”
When I tell people about my job—costume design and styling for the entertainment industry— and that much of the work revolves around shopping, they are often amazed to learn that such a position even exists. And when I explain that “shopper” is an actual job title, and that pretty much every theatrical production, film, and television show employs one or more shoppers, I’m often presented with questions about what the job entails, or how to get into the field.
The Variable Star is a classic quilt block that has been around for over 100 years. It has also been called the Sawtooth Star and the Evening Star. This fun block lends itself to so many versions. Since the center is a square, you can fill that square with patchwork, fussy cut fabric, or more stars (like I did)!
Ever since I heard about it, I’ve been so excited to get my hands on Jennifer Heynen’s new book Sew Small: 19 little bags, and it’s finally here! Jennifer is the super adorable and talented artist otherwise known as Jennifer Jangles. If you stitched up our Mini Quilt of the Month last month then you already know this because she designed it. 🙂
<img src=”https://sewcanshe.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/PinterestPin28629.png” alt=”Pinterest Pin (6).png” /> Christmas is almost here…I love the excitement! Half the fun of Christmas for me happens in the last few days right before Christmas Eve. I inevitably need to come up with last minute gift…
So, you have some extra quilt blocks lying around. Maybe you made too many for a quilt or you made too few (he he – anybody here do that?). Well, those orphan quilt blocks would make amazing pillows, but don’t just sew them to a square of fabric for the back! Quilt blocks are gorgeous, so let’s make a gorgeous quilted pillow, shall we?
Your give-away is only for bloggers, then?
Good question. You do NOT need to have a blog or include a link to enter, just upload a picture to prove you made one. If you did blog about your block, feel free to link so we can read the post. 🙂
Very exciting! I only had a chance to make one or two of the blocks last year. I moved and just recently dusted off my sewing machine and pulled out my fabric stash. I am a beginner when it comes to quilt blocks, so this is a perfect start for me. :o)
Who do we address the email, with our uploaded picture, to? I sent mine in, but haven’t seen where it is posted
This is the year I decided I want to learn to quilt and I just happened upon your blog! This is a great jumping off point for me. Thank you!
Could people of another country participate ?
I cant figure out how to add my bowtie block picture:( It’s my first one ever and even though its a bit crooked I’m very proud and excited!
This is my first venture into quilt blocks, I’ve only ever done one appliqué quilt before but I normally make children’s clothes. So after making the first block I have a question. How do I store the blocks for the next 12 months? I don’t really want to fold them because a 12 month old crease won’t be easy to get out.
Thanks everyone xx
First off, I have had great luck getting creases out of quilt blocks and tops by pressing with a hot iron and using spray starch or magic sizing.
But I understand your desire to not get creases in the first place. Can you store them flat anywhere, like on top of a shelf or book case (protected from dust, of course)? If they aren’t too big you could put them in a file folder.
Does anyone else have any ideas?
