Join me October 30 – November 20!

Fabric Requirements: We will be estimating fabric requirements based on the size quilt you create. See the first blog post for details, on October 30th.

Quilting Basics: There are many helpful online tutorials for beginning quilters–Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson! has a great series here: Quilt Making Basics.

Advanced Techniques: The Lighthouse Quilt Blocks are paper pieced. I will provide instructions in the tutorials, but if you’d like to get a jump start on learning this new skill, you can find a tutorial on my blog here.

Fresh Lemons Quilts Flickr Group: I’d love to see your fabric selections, process shots, and finished quilt through the Fresh Lemons Quilts Flickr group.

  • Week 8 of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! This week we travel to St. Augustine, Florida. I designed this block after visiting the Castillo de San Marcos over Spring Break. The block’s design is modeled after the view of the fort from above. #nationalpark #castillodesanmarcos #quiltalong #foundationpaperpiecing
  • This week in the Summer Sampler 2018 Quilt Along, we are traveling to Germany to make this block, Half Timber. It is inspired German architecture, designed by @lee.a.heinrich #summersampler2018 #quiltalong
  • Kyler’s not the only creative one this summer. Avery is making blankets for Project Linus. Her plan is to make as many as she can in 20 hours to earn her @girlscouts Cadette Service Bar. We think she can make between 15-20. She is planning on making slime to sell to raise money for the fleece fabric. #girlscouts #cadette #juliette #projectlinus #serviceproject
  • So this is back on the design wall...Kyler’s blocks from the #notyourmamasbee ! We are waaaaaay overdue finishing these quilts up! He sewed an extra block today and we are ready to sash!
  • This is our 5th week of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! We are traveling to Sydney, Australia with @quietplay , designer of the Points block. Fasten your seatbelts- we are foundation paper piecing AND sewing curves! I (obviously) don’t sew curves often, but I love the addition of this block in the collection so far! It’s not too late to join us - click the link in my profile for all the details!
  • Avery is taking the Girl Scout Outdoor Challenge this month! And since she’s not allowed to have her own Instagram, I thought I’d post for her here. ☺️ #gsoutdoors This week’s theme is Go The Distance. This is her after she ran the Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Fund for Literacy GlowRun 5k on June 2nd.
  • Week 4 of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! This week we are traveling to Egypt for our block, Giza. When I designed this block, I was inspired by the entrance to the Great Pyramid in Giza. #quiltalong #foundationpaperpiecing
  • This week’s #summersampler2018 block is Southwest Highway by @sewkatiedid , inspired by the mountains of New Mexico. Our first foundation paper pieced block! If you are new to the technique, I made a video of me making the block. 🙈 You can find it, along with some tips, on my blog today at
