Have you mastered Four-Patches, Nine-Patches, and Pinwheels? Then watch closely as we make these simple blocks…disappear! Quilts made with disappearing blocks are intriguing—and oh-so-fun! But just what are they and how are they made? A disappearing block starts with a fairly simple block. By carefully slicing it into sections and rearranging those sections, you can magically give the block an entirely new look. Now gather ‘round as we demonstrate the clever tricks for transforming your blocks! Let’s start with a simple Four-Patch: Behold! The meek Four-Patch Make a couple of slices horizontally and vertically… Look away as we cut… Now
Early this week I shared photos of my scrappy version of a Hunter’s Star quilt. I realized when I was finished with it that I had stumbled on a great pattern for a layer cake, so I thought I’d share a quick tutorial. Fabric requirements: Each 8 pointed star in a hunter’s star quilt is made up of four smaller [...]
We're so excited to share another free project with you! This one is called Seeing Stars, by Alex Anderson, and is from Make Star Quilts. FINISHED QUILT: 48 1/2˝ × 54 1/2˝ FINISHED BLOCK: 6˝ × 6˝ TOTAL NUMBEROF STAR BLOCKS: 27 I love Star quilts, so I guess it’s no surprise that I would include one in this book. I decided to emphasize the star motif by making the star points darker than the star centers (or “bellies”) and—taking my cue from modern quilters—chose a fresh, sparkling white for the background. As a finishing touch, I dropped in a few random polka dot squares for visual interest and to complement the polka dots I used in some of the blocks. Designed and pieced by Alex Anderson; machine quilted by Dianne Schweickert Materials Fabric amounts are based on a 42˝ fabric width. ASSORTED LIGHT TO DARK COLORFUL PRINTS: 1 yard total for stars WHITE SOLID: 3 yards for block backgrounds, filler strips, filler squares, outer border, and binding LIGHT PRINT: 1/4 yard for filler squares A TEAL AND A BLUE SUBTLE PRINT: 1/8 yard of each for flat piping BACKING: 3 yards of fabric (horizontal seam) BATTING: 53˝ × 59˝ Cutting All measurements include 1/4˝-wide seam allowance. Cut strips on the crosswise grain of the fabric (selvage to selvage) unless otherwise noted. See the introduction to Piecing the Blocks (next page) for the number and combination of pieces you’ll use for each block. ASSORTED COLORFUL PRINTS Cut 108 squares 2 3/8˝ × 2 3/8˝ in matching sets of 4 for star points. Cut 27 squares 3 1/2˝ × 3 1/2˝ for star centers. WHITE SOLID—LENGTHWISE GRAIN Cut 2 strips 3 1/2˝ × 42 1/2˝. Cut 2 strips 3 1/2˝ × 54 1/2˝. REMAINING WHITE SOLID Cut 27 squares 4 1/4˝ × 4 1/4˝ for star-point units. Cut 108 squares 2˝ × 2˝ for block corners. Cut 11 squares 6 1/2˝ × 6 1/2˝ for large filler squares. Cut 20 rectangles 3 1/2˝ × 6 1/2˝ for filler strips. Cut 4 rectangles 3 1/2˝ × 12 1/2˝ for filler strips. Cut 1 rectangle 3 1/2˝ × 9 1/2˝ for filler strip. Cut 4 squares 3 1/2˝ × 3 1/2˝ for small filler squares. Cut 6 strips 2 1/8˝ × the fabric width for binding. LIGHT PRINT Cut 9 squares 3 1/2˝ × 3 1/2˝ for filler squares. BLUE AND TEAL PRINTS—FROM EACH Cut 3 strips 1˝ × the fabric width. Construction PIECING THE BLOCKS For each of these blocks, use 4 matching 2 3/8˝ × 2 3/8˝ squares for the star points, a square 3 1/2˝ × 3 1/2˝ cut from a different print for the star center, and a square 4 1/4˝ × 4 1/4˝ and 4 squares 2˝ × 2˝ cut from the white solid for the background. 1. Use 4 matching print squares 2 3/8˝ × 2 3/8˝ and a white square 4 1/4˝ × 4 1/4˝ to make 4 Flying Geese units. Make 4 Flying Geese units. 2. Arrange the 4 units from Step 1, an assorted print 3 1/2˝ × 3 1/2˝ square, and 4 white 2˝ × 2˝ squares as shown. Sew the units and squares together into rows; press. Sew the rows together; press. Sew units and squares together into rows. 3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to make a total of 27 Star blocks. QUILT ASSEMBLY 1. Arrange the blocks, the large and small filler squares, and the filler strips as shown in the quilt assembly diagram. 2. Sew the blocks, squares, and strips together in “neighborhoods” as shown; press. 3. Sew the neighborhoods together; press so that seams fall in opposite directions whenever possible. 4. Sew the 3 1/2˝ × 42 1/2˝ white outer-border strips to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press the seams toward the border. Sew the 3 1/2˝ × 54 1/2˝ white outer-border strips to the sides of the quilt; press. Quilt assembly FINISHING 1. Layer and baste the quilt, and then quilt as desired. Dianne machine quilted an overall motif of large bubbles and swirls over the entire quilt, picking up on the circles in the many polka dot fabrics. 2. Sew the 1˝-wide blue and teal strips together end to end with diagonal seams, and press the seams open. Fold the strip in half, wrong sides together, and press. 3. Trim the batting and backing even with the raw edges of the quilt top. Measure the quilt through the center from top to bottom and from side to side. Cut 2 strips to each measurement from the folded blue/teal strip. With right sides together and raw edges aligned, use a machine basting stitch and a scant 1/4˝ seam to sew the piping strips to the sides, top, and bottom of the quilt. Add piping. 4. Sew the 2 1/8˝-wide white binding strips together end to end with diagonal seams, and use them to bind the edges of the quilt.

How to Make a Perfect Ribbon Star Quilt Block
The Inside Out Star Quilt Pattern was the first one I released in February 2017. I remember how excited and terrified I was to release a pattern. What if I did all the math wrong? What if no one likes it? What if I have issues with people being able to download the pattern? It was intoxicating though - I think I sold maybe 20 during the release? I was just beyond excited to have sold any! People bought it and it covered my cost of materials so I was pumped! It was my first time putting myself out there in that capacity, creating something that someone else can reproduce exactly. It definitely gave me the bug to keep producing patterns. Well 2.5 years later and I have designed and released 25 patterns. My business has grown and grown and evolved in ways I never imagined possible. It still is surreal to wrap my head around all that has changed in these 2.5 years. My son wasn't talking much, hadn't ever been to a preschool, was sleeping in a crib and still in diapers. Now, in 2 weeks he will be in Kindergarten and our lives are so different and infinitely better. 2.5 years ago we were drowning in $40,000+ of commercial debt, living paycheck to paycheck, not knowing if me working while our son was at home made sense. I was so stressed, I cried A LOT, I had no idea if this new business was worth this time and energy. I had no idea what I was doing. I was working during nights and weekends, we didn't have much family time at all. I felt like a bad mom all the time for sewing and working instead of actively playing with my child every second of the day (which no one does or should feel they have to do BTW). But what I have come to learn is that I was becoming the woman and mom I wanted to be through this work. The struggles of finding new boundaries to give myself the freedom to work or not work has been life changing. We are now debt free because all of my TCJ money went to paying it off. We are working on saving up a big emergency savings stash. We have cash flowed my appendectomy surgery and other medical expenses. We have taken vacations paid for in cash. And we have big plans for the future of our house and my business - renovations to build a nice TCJ studio in the next year or two. And I don't say any of this to brag but to say that in my case, my hard work has paid off. The struggle has fortified us. And the sacrifices have been outweighed by the benefits. I now make myself, my work and my passions a priority. It is not only about being a mom, a wife and friend. I am taking care of me. I am feeding myself first so that I can feed others. By allowing myself the time and the grace to grow and evolve, my priorities are clear. I want to be the best version of myself so I can be the best wife, the best mother, and the best friend to those in my life. And I feel like my best self when I am creating and sharing my love of what I do with others. This career has given me purpose, given me confidence and given me the strength to continue moving forward. Taking the days as they come - good and bad. During these 2.5 years, I have had some of the hardest personal struggles I've dealt with in my life. I have lost my grandma, my aunt and my dog. The grief has been with me daily but it fuels my fire to keep my focuses clear and simple. This life is meant to be lived, meant to be loved and meant to be shared with others. And when my clarity gets cloudy, it is okay. It is okay to fall down, to get lost and to re-evaluate my intentions. I am only human. And I feel like this late spring I got lost. I was so overworked but I couldn't recognize it. I hired Alysson, my assistant, in March and she was the answer to prayer. She helped me keep my head above water. She helped me get organized. She helped me feel like I COULD take on the world. What I didn't realize at the time was that I didn't HAVE to take on the world. Just because I had her help didn't mean I had to make more work for myself - But I sure did. It was amazing to see how much work could be accomplished with her coming 8-12 hours a week. And it was exciting to get all these new ideas in my head and see them come to life so much quicker with her help. Between April - June we were averaging like 1-2 quilts a WEEK, outside of anything else with running the business. And holy smokes, looking back, that was INSANE and is the root cause for my burn out I had this summer. Once summer hit and Alysson had to reduce her hours because her kids were home from school and planned vacations, I kinda felt like a deer in the headlights. The idea of taking on a new project without her felt way too overwhelming. And it was the biggest blessing in disguise. I inadvertently took most of the summer off work and actively creating. I did not sew for 47 days. The idea of sewing felt awful and it scared me. I hadn't ever experience this kind of burn out before. I tried to force myself to start a project here and there for those first few weeks and nothing worked. I finally decided that actively creating was not in the cards right now. I gave myself permission to not create and took July and most of August off. I still emailed, fulfilled orders and kept up with some behind the scenes business stuff but did not proactively work on anything. This time off was eye opening. It took a few weeks to get into a new rhythm and not feel SO guilty for not working. But eventually, I really soaked up this time. I read probably 6-7 books, cooked a lot, watched TV and spent time with my friends and family. Stepping away from work was so refreshing. And it clarified some things for me. I realized that a big reason I was so burned out was because my motivations were so wrong during the spring. I wasn't using Alysson's help to just figure out a better balance and lighten my load. I was using it as a way to produce more and more and more so I could make more content to post and share and in turn hopefully more money. My reasons for creating were for outward validations. For the likes on social media, the comments, the sales, the love but at the end of the day, it was feeling hollow. No wonder I couldn't sew or start a new project, it felt so shallow and unfulfilling. But finally after 47 days, I woke up feeling excited to make again. I wanted to play with fabric, cut it up and sew it back together again. I craved that satisfaction I felt the first time I ever made a quilt - something only for me. And I decided the best place to start was back at the beginning, my Inside Out Star Quilt. So finally, if you've made it this far in this long blogpost, we are at the quilt! I was so excited to make this quilt that I never even got a photo of the fabrics I was using. haha! I wanted a fun summer vibes star quilt. I pulled everything from my stash and because of that, I didn't follow my material requirements exactly as written in the pattern. But for anyone wanting to make a version like this where each star has a different background you'll need: (12) F8s (9
