Innocence is a wall hanging that is charming and has a special meaning for Laura. In her words: This is a personal quilt. I made it with scraps that I have collected over a period of time. I am hoping that you will make it personal for you too. All pieces were scraps or no bigger than fat 1/8’s. Use the swatch photo as a guide, or change it to suit yourself. All proceeds of this pattern will be donated to Sisters of the Movement. Check them out at sistersofthemovement.org

The newest Creative Grids® tool, Kitty Cornered, developed by Deb Heatherly is simply brilliant! It is one of those blocks that I always paper-pieced in the past because I just couldn’t sew those odd angles accurately. Well, not anymore!
Make eleven different sizes of the Kitty Cornered block – two at a time! Cut the odd angles with the tool, then trim them down to size after sewing. Fast, easy and accurate! Make two Kitty Cornered blocks at one time – the printed cutting chart is right on the tool! Create eleven sizes from 1 to 6 inches – and every half inch in between. The ruler comes with fully illustrated step by step instructions or watch the YouTube video to see a demonstration.
And, of course, there are sooo many companions. Daddy’s Ties is a Cut Loose Press™ pattern and is the perfect choice for a memory quilt. I am making this one with a friend who lost her husband a few years ago. We are using his ties – and oxford cloth shirts for the background squares. What an heirloom!
Combining four of the blocks – and sewing them together like a nine-patch creates this stunning quilt – Kitty Cornered Chained. Don’t you love the larger units as accents in the middle border?
Evergreen Runner is a fast, easy project combining half-square triangles and Kitty Cornered blocks.
By reversing the lights and darks in the block, a whole new design is created in Happy N Blessed.
Nostalgia combined Kitty Cornered blocks with three inch log cabins – created with the four inch log cabin trim tool.

I love everything Kim Diehl has ever done and the latest – Simple Sampler – is no exception. But it is anything but “simple”!
In her own words, Kim says this stunning quilt combines two of her loves – stars and fusible wool appliqué. With an invitation to slow down and enjoy hand stitching the wool appliqué blocks, Kim makes this decadent quilt simple with full-size appliqué patterns, detailed instructions, and scads of tips for success.
And true to her more-is-more philosophy, Kim has cooked up a batch of five additional projects inspired by the blocks in the sampler quilt. You won’t be able to stitch just one!
Her designs are so unique that you can take any block or element from her quilts and expand it into a whole new project. This book is due to arrive the beginning of August so place your orders now!

I LOVE this! Melissa Corry of Happy Quilting has teamed up with Its Sew Emma to create a compendium of ten darling baby quilts – all created with one, two or three charm packs.
All of the designs are simple enough for beginners but stylish enough to appeal to everyone. These are the types of quilts that you can make in a day so your favorite little one is free to actually use and love their blankie!
My plan? Give the book to an expecting mother and let her pick out her own quilt. Go out to lunch and stop by your favorite quilt shop so she can pick out the fabrics as well. And, if she wants to learn to sew? These quilts would be the perfect beginning project! Why not make a party – or series of parties – out of it? It doesn’t get any easier than this!
