  1. Hi Jennifer! You left a comment on my blog (Kim’s Big Quilting Adventure) asking about the Sew Spooky BOM and whether I’d found it as a kit. Yes, Homespun Hearth has the “all at once kit” which includes all the fabrics and pattern (that’s what I purchased), and they also have it as a monthly BOM kit. You can see it here:

  2. Hi Jennifer–

    I’ll reply to the comment you left on my blog today here as you’re set to “no reply” on google. My cat Gomez is a stray who adopted me so I don’t know if he has Burmese in him or not. Probably not. He has the most wonderful green eyes and likes to say MAOW! Thanks so much for visiting my blog 🙂

  3. Hi Jennifer, could you tell me where you found the pattern for your Rah Rah Rally quilt? I’ve checked the internet and haven’t been able to find where to buy it. Thanks! Joyce

    • Hi Joyce!

      The Rally quilt is a pattern by Melissa Cory. She has a blog called “Happy Quilting”. The pattern is published in a book called “Sweet Celebrations” by Lissa Alexander. A group of designers from the Moda bake shop team have contributed to the book. Melissa just recently blogged more about her quilt this week. Hope that helps!

      • Thanks for the info, Jennifer. I ordered the book from amazon this morning.

  4. Jennifer,
    I had the same experience that you did! I saw the Quilter’s Newletter Magazine in the store and just fell in LOVE. I can’t wait to start it. (There are other projects in the cue to finish first) I also have the December/January issue. Please let me know how it is going!!!
    Thanks for your terrific blog. I am now a follower too!

    • Thank you Sherri! I am looking forward to starting that magazine quilt, but I decided to collect a few more black and white prints. I found some from the Downton Abbey collection that will go GREAT with the color scheme. I am planning on a post soon where I showcase the fabrics I have selected for the quilt. Let me know if you publish a blog as well – I would love to visit!

  5. Jennifer,
    I have been pondering the fabrics too, especially the large paisley. I have seen the Downton Abby collection and I think that is a great idea! I can’t wait to see your post.
    I love your blog.
    Sherri

  6. Hey Jennifer,
    I have been surfing the web looking at fabric and found Perugina Paisley Black & Khaki Tan Brown Black Cream Ivory 100% Cotton. It looks like this may be a good compromise for the original fabric that apparently discontinued. I’m liking it a lot. Have you started yet? It will probably be the next one I tackle. Right now I am making one for my daughter for her graduation this year. It is made with her baby clothes and I will applique daisies on the top. She loves daisies.
    Happy Quilting,
    Sherri
    May your bobbin always be full 🙂

    • Hi Sherri! I had ordered a panel print from the Palm Court collection (Benartex) that has a great large scale paisley design. I keep adding more prints to my group and I really need to stop and assess what I have or I’ll have an overload of these neutrals that I may never use! Perhaps next weekend will be the opportunity I need to lay them all out and take some pictures to kind of look at it all objectively. Will you be sewing along?

  7. Hey Jennifer,
    I have started on the challenge quilt! Being somewhat of a newbie I might be crazy for trying this, but what the heck, this is how you learn new things! I have most of the fabric. I have laid out the blocks to paper piece. I can’t find any overall dimensions for the center medallion. Do you have any ideas?

  8. Hi Jennifer,
    I came across your blog when doing some research on the Schnibbles Clover pattern. I absolutely love the borders and prayer points you added to make the quilt larger. I was wondering if you could share the sizes of the border strips you added and the prairie points. Also, did you ever wind up adding side borders? Any info you could offer would be much appreciated!

    • Hi Jenn! Glad you found my blog and found something you liked! I haven’t finished it yet (soon!) … but I’ll have to go home and measure the borders – I can’t remember at the moment. I know for the prairie points though, I used up what I had from charm packs and bought a couple more charm packs of Posh Pumpkin to finish the sides. I just took the 5″ squares and folded them diagonally twice to make the point and sewed them into the seam with the border. I think the border strips were 5″ inches wide also, but I’ll double check and send you an email to confirm. I’ll post again when (hopeful!) I get the top really completed with the side borders. I want it for sure in the Fall this year.
