Hey Everyone! It’s time for another blog tour and this one is super fun! I get to show you some of Trick or Treat by Carta Bella for Penny Rose Fabrics.
If you’ve followed me for awhile you know I usually, well actually pretty exclusively, only make quilts for blog tours, but I thought I’d switch it up this time. Who doesn’t like a good Halloween wallhanging? For this project you’ll need the following –
What do you say? Ready to get started?
Hey Y’all! A few weeks ago I was asked to take part in another Penny Rose Fabrics blog tour. This quilt is for Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs very first line for Penny Rose called Faded Memories. It’s a rich mix of reds, blues, and neutrals that all come together to make a very classic and luscious combination. You may be thinking, uh oh, she’s going to show us a very traditional quilt with lots of separate cuts and lots of yardage…that just isn’t like Crystal. Never fear we’re going to slice up a Rolie Polie in our usual studio fashion. As always, I have a YouTube tutorial for you as well as photos to follow along.
What do you say? Let’s get started.

Hi Everyone & welcome to WEEK 1 of Quilting from ‘Square’ One-
Are you more nervous or excited or an eclectic combination of both!?! Well, don’t be nervous….this is fun stuff! Here’s how we’re going to break down this crazy hobby called quilting. This week we will be going to go over basic items like machine basics, the right and wrong side of fabric, why an accurate 1/4″ is important and how you’ll be sewing together your first block set. You can watch the video snip-its for information as well as follow along with the written instructions.
Please reach out if you are lost or would like to as a question. I’m here to help!
Machine Basics: Make sure you have 2 wound bobbins of a ‘mostly’ matching thread color. Most people use white or black. Since most of our kits have white center blocks you’ll want to use white thread. Coats & Clark is a basic beginner brand that is affordable and an all around easy every day thread.
If you are new to your machine or haven’t used it in awhile I highly suggest running a few test stitches through your machine before getting started. This will help you feel more comfortable when you start on your real blocks and will allow you to adjust any tension issues you may run into. Since everyone probably has a different machine I will direct you to you individual machine manual should you have mechanical issues.
