How to Make Quilt as You Go Placemats

How to Make Quilt as You Go Placemats While we love making quilts and will gladly spend weeks sewing up a project, sometimes we need a quick and easy quilting project we can finish in an afternoon. When those projects can be made from scraps, it’s even better! We now get a mental break and a chance to destress and have a practically free project at the end. Another bonus to these small projects, is using up batting scraps. We always end up with strips of batting cut off of our quilts after they are finished. We have an entire...

Lucky Charm Quilt Block

How to make a Four Leaf Clover Quilt Block As I was looking around my home a few weeks ago, I decided that I need more holiday decorations. I also decided that those holiday decorations should consist entirely of quilted projects, cause why not! It was way too late to start a Valentine’s quilt, so I skipped ahead and designed something for St Patrick’s day instead. This was probably for the best, as I think this holiday is one that I have the least amount of decor items for! Of course, I couldn’t keep this project to myself, so today,...
