It feels so good to actually be back to finishing some projects around here! With Christmas and the whole website thing, projects had to take a back seat. We had so many that just needed finishing touches, some that were started but still needed lots of work, and some we’ve been dying to do but didn’t have time. So now we’re back to sewing and having such a great time.

I love this quilt using the Tilly fabrics by Daisy Janie. Jan offered up this pattern free on her blog and we jumped on it. This quilt went together so easy and only requires 8 fat quarters to make the entire top! This is definitely a quilt top you can knock out in a day.

I love how it graduates from light to dark.

We kept the back pretty simple for this one. We used the Houndstooth Eggshell from Free Spirit. Such great micro-houndstooth prints. For the binding we used chose Flourish and it just ties it all in.

 I love projects that go together easy and can be knocked out in a weekend … instant gratification!  You can find the pattern on Jan’s blog here. If you’re not following her blog already, you really should. Jan’s always coming up with some great tutorials and projects.

Want to make a Garden Ladder quilt of your very own? We’ve kitted it up with the fat quarters and binding fabric and discounted it 10%.

It’s a rainy, nasty day around here so I’m hoping to get my Swoon on and start knocking out some blocks. I finally had a chance last night to cut some more but I’m afraid I’m going to run out of Kona Snow before I can finish. Hmmm … might have to switch up before it’s too late.

xo, Jen & Janet

  1. What an eye catching quilt…looks complicated, but yet is a simple yet clever idea. Thanks for the link :o)

  2. Our pleasure! It was so easy to cut and put back together. Mom knocked the whole thing out in a couple of days.

  3. Wow!! It looks splendid!!!! Can’t wait to get mine back from the Queen of Quilting, Angela Walters. Thanks for sharing with the LP fans!!

    • Jan » So jealous Angela is doing yours! The quilt itself is fabulous. She’ll elevate it to a whole new level with her artistry. Can’t wait to see it!
