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!

I’ve been sewing a long time and I’ve received lots of wonderful birthday and Christmas presents. I’ve also received a lot of crummy ones (cheap sewing kits, anyone?). So I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorite gifts… ideas for what you can give your sewing buddies. Or maybe something for you to share with others so they know what you get you, wink wink!
One of the first things I ever learned to sew was doll clothes. I think I was about 8. My family never had a lot of money (9 kids!), so I had to make my own. I cut up clothing that was destined for goodwill and made clothes for my stuffed dolls, stuffed animals, and even my younger siblings, lol!
I recently needed a gift for a little guy’s birthday party, and with just one day to spare this little project was perfect. I had heard that this tutorial was great but let me tell you, it ROCKS! This is…

Hi Caroline! It looks like your new quilt is very popular. Can I get excited about getting the new pattern???!!!! 🙂
Huddle is a great modern quilt. I would like the pattern. I can see it made with a colored background and resize for a twin bed. I need twin bed quilts for Grandkids and right now way to many quilts are only squares It would make a great ISpy Quilt
I follow you almost everyday as you are very creative and not just quilts or just other sewing.
This quilt is beautiful. So many fabric possibilities! I would love to see a pattern for this. Thanks for the sneak peek!
Oh, your quilt is so beautiful. I can envision it in my den with the colors of the room. A pattern would be great. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.

How do you get all this done! You have a beautiful site – when mine grows up I hope to be able to get as much done as you! And this particular quilt is just beautiful!
I like that you have a link to your journey with mental health. I have been thinking of doing the same, but haven’t had the courage to "come out" so to speak. The closest I’ve come is a blog post on a quilt I made as a self portrait called Someone’s War. Good luck – and know that you are admired by many! – Aggie, Lavender Quilting Farm
Thank you Aggie!
Your quilt is lovely Caroline! Simple looking quilts are what I look for these days. And your quilt looks like a good size.
I love your Huddle Quilt. Yes! Please make a pattern!
