One of my first quilts was a Churn Dash quilt. This traditional block is an easy block for beginners and also a great block for more experienced quilters. I’ve found some more Churn Dash patterns and wanted to share them with you!

Hanging a quilt is not always an easy task. I have found an easy hanging stand that allows you to easily hang your quilt anywhere! Here are some places where this quilt stand would work very well:
Quilt guild meeting
Photographing your quilt
This stand is so easy, I was able to set it up in minutes the very first time I tried right out of the box. I’m planning on using mine in my video studio as well as taking it with me to quilt shows. It’s lightweight and easy to bring along. I don’t need tools to set it up, and I can set it up myself. The Craftgard Co. knows these things are important to quilters and they’ve kept us in mind when designing this quilt hanging stand.
I highly recommend this stand from The Craftgard Co.
P.S. The Craftgard Co. sent me this stand so that I could try it and review it for you. I only bring you reviews of products I love and really use. I love this stand and will be using it in future videos when I need to hang quilts quickly and easily!
This Flower Basket Quilt Block is part of the 2013 Craftsy Block of the Month Video Class Series. Each block has its own video with instructor Laura Knownes. Laura does a great job of walking us through every step of making this block.
I recommend this block for beginners who would like to try their hand at applique. There are two different styles of applique shown so you can choose which one you would like to try.
I use the following products in making this Flower Basket Block.

I just finished quilting a pink,red and yellow diamond quilt that I pieced over a year ago. The quilt turned out so well, I’m thinking of doing another one. So I’ve been looking at other diamond patterns. I’ve discovered there are lots of ways to piece diamond quilts to make many different patterns. Here are some patterns I’ve discovered that you might want to check out. And some are free!

When I saw this set of quilters luggage at the quilt show, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. I’ve had my current machine carrying case for over 15 years. It’s a little too small, and not made of the best stuff. So when I saw what was available from Tutto, I knew I had to give it a try.
I am happy to say that the luggage is exceeding my expectations. Not only is it sturdy and made very well, but it also collapses so that when I’m not using it, I can put it away in my studio without taking up so much room.
I ordered the large sewing machine on wheels and matching embroidery project bag. They travel very well together and allow me to bring all of my supplies with me and keep them organized as I sew at quilt camp.
You can find out more about Tutto sewing products at their website.
P.S. Tutto sent me these to try out and review. I only recommend products that I think are top quality and that I use myself. I am thrilled with the quality of these carriers and I know I will be using mine for a very long time.

One of my favorite types of quilts to make is a scrap quilt. I love the idea of using up what I already have and making the most of my stash. I also love the look of a good scrap quilt. They have a warmth and charm that happens without any extra effort on my part. If you’re looking for some good patterns to reduce that stash, here are 10 to choose from, and some are free!

When it’s time to put binding on a quilt, I find it a chore to cut the bias binding. First I have to figure out which angle on my ruler to use, then where to place it on the fabric to get started.
Cutting bias binding just got easier with this new bias tool ruler! I tried it and I will never go back to the old way of cutting bias binding. TQM Products makes a ruler that takes the work out of cutting bias binding. Watch the video to see how fast and easy it is! I’ve used the tool for two quilts already and will never bind a quilt without it again! And an added bonus is that it folds in half so I can easily pack it for traveling!

P.S. TQM Products gave me the Bias Tool to review. I only bring you reviews of products I use and know are going to be really valuable to you and your quilting. This is one of those products!
