What does scrappy mean to you? Senior Editor Elizabeth Tisinger Beese and I are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to scrappy. If I had my own scrap-o-meter, it would hover in the slightly scrappy quadrant most often. (Elizabeth offers her view on scrappy, below.) I tend to tackle a scrappy project when I need a fresh perspective. Of the scrappy projects I’ve made, my favorites include a crazy Log Cabin quilt I assembled for my godson out of a fish print and tropical colors, an off-center Log Cabin quilt I stitched for a wedding gift, and a half Log Cabin quilt, right, I pieced for my best friend. (It’s interesting that all my scrappy quilts have been Log Cabin variations!) In this issue, we show you quilts that…

tips from readers

MONOGRAM MAKER I reuse twill tape that is wrapped around fat quarter bundles to make quick quilt tags. Back the twill tape with a piece of tear-away stabilizer, and machine-embroider your initials and the year. Tear off the stabilizer, fold the twill tape in half and tuck it under the binding so it gets stitched in place as you sew down the binding. Use grosgrain ribbon if you want to match the label to your quilt. Martha L. Gamm Dakota Dunes, South Dakota SMALL BUT STRIKING On my miniature quilts, I always use single-thickness binding because it has less bulk than the doublefold binding often used on full-size quilts. For one-of-a-kind binding, I use leftover quilt scraps. I cut strip ends on a 45° angle, stitch the strips together, press seams open, and trim for…

jenny doan: rockin’ the block

Meet quilting superhero Jenny Doan, whose contagious energy has sparked a main street makeover. She and her Missouri Star Quilt Co. team are quite literally the fabric of small-town Hamilton, Missouri. Pioneering women never would have dreamed that a single quilter could round up such a bee. Nor did Jenny Doan imagine so many eyes would be on her when in 2009 she began recording quilting tutorial videos and posting them on YouTube. “I just wanted to sew,” she says, “and help working women and stay-at-home moms who had no time to take a class.” The response of Internet-savvy quilters, however, was overwhelmingly enthusiastic and shows no sign of waning. To date, Jenny has posted more than 340 YouTube videos, and her sons still record her every Friday, capturing her friendly smile,…
