SCRAPBOOK OF FRIENDS: PILLOW ALONG

If you have been following along, you might already know that my quilty friend Carrie [HERE on Instagram] and I have been writing a book with the lovely ladies over at ITS SEW EMMA. It is chalk full of great projects… quilts, table runners, pillows, pin cushions and even more! Can there be even more than that? There CAN… and there IS… I promise!

So in honor of National Sew a Jelly Roll Day, I wanted to share a couple of jelly roll patterns that I think really show how a jelly roll can make a traditionally challenging quilt pattern much simpler to put together. I’m talking about stars—Lone Stars, to be specific! I love the timeless look of Lone Star quilts and I think every…
