Let's Take a Road Trip!

Friday, February 26, 2021

My friend and pattern designer, Heather Black of Quiltachusetts, has so many great things happening! She is now the author of TWO quilting books, and her second fabric collection was just released too!! Of course I jumped at the chance to sew something up with her newest fabrics!

The collection is named "Road Trip" - a nod to the memories of Heather's family road trips. When brainstorming what I might make, I kept circling back to travel themed ideas. I knew suitcases would be a great way to feature the prints in the collection, so the idea was born!

Lucky Squares - A FREE Quilt Block Pattern!

This month's Quilt Block Mania theme is "Lucky Charms!" Of course the first thing I thought of was the cereal with the same name! I decided to go with the most obvious choice for my block - a four-leaf clover!
