A couple of weeks ago, I decided I needed to sew some clothing right away. This happens to me when I have been dealing with fiddly quilt blocks or need a palette refresher. It seems so satisfying in those moments... Continue reading

It's hard to say as it depends on what size quilt and how big you make the blocks. For a 60" square throw quilt with 5" x 10" geese, you need 72. For the same size quilt with 3" x 6" geese, you need 120.

I have a new tutorial over on the Accuquilt blog for making a super-sized churn dash block. I really love making large-scale blocks. They pack a huge visual punch. You can have a quilt top in no time. This block... Continue reading

You will need 3 3/4 yards of the background fabric for a twin. Hope that helps, Julie!

Hi Katie! The horizontal lines do not go through the blocks. There's a free motion, paisley type design in there!

I have a new tutorial on the Accuquilt blog showing how to make this adorable spring bunting. It's super easy and uses just two dies and very little fabric. Everything I used was taken from the scrap pile! There are... Continue reading

Thanks, Sandra! I understand what you are saying about the bias raising the neckline, but this pattern only has a 1/4" seam allowance so the neckline isn't changed. It made making the switch an easy choice for me.

Often, after working on a quilt with a lot of math and small pieces, I feel like I need a good, easy, but still interesting project to work on. A palette cleanser of sorts. I've been in the mood to... Continue reading

As it stands, the medallion and border 1 add up to 21" finished. My goal is for the finished quilt to be approximately 60" square (it might be slightly smaller or bigger, but not by much). As far as fabrics go, there will be a few more added, but I don't have a total number as I am still fine-tuning the design. Hope that helps!
