Make your own updated version of the traditional Rail Fence with this quick-and-fun pattern designed by Ricky and demonstrated in Show 1013: Journaling Through (and On) Quilts.
Here's a great project from Sue Bleiweiss and WeAllSew.com. It's a Notepad Folio that would make a great gift and could be easily re-sized to fit any use.
Star Members can watch Sue in Show 1608: Creating Unique Collage Quilts & Quilts with Meaning.
Lee from Freshly Pieced is sharing her first tutorial for We All Sew. In it she shows you how to make and attach a quilt hanging sleeve to the back of a quilt with almost no hand-stitching. (Almost!) That got your attention, didn’t it?
You’ll need a few different presser feet for this technique:
Lee's tutorial is based on this excellent video by Felisa Quilts. But since the video is captioned in Japanese and all the measurements are in centimeters, WeAllSew asked her to break it down in English and inches. Check out the video anyway, to further illustrate how this works!
This tutorial is for a 4″ hanging sleeve; it's a bit larger than the one shown in the video, but it is standard for many shows here in the U.S.
As Valentine's Day is just around the corner, we thought you might want to make your sweetie a macaroon we found on Craft Passion.
While a "true" macaroon is a sweet, meringue-based confection with ganache, butter cream, or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies, your recipient will appreciate this calorie-free version, which looks adorable hanging from a purse, tote bag, or cell phone.
These little bundles are so cute, you just might want to make a half dozen.

It's time to begin work on the hedgerows. Join 2015 BOM designer Lynette Anderson as she guides you along this journey back through her childhood. "Wonderful wildflowers grew tangled in the hedgerows. My grandmother taught me all their names when I was little. This month’s appliqué represents the glorious flowers I remember from my childhood days. I arranged the bias stems, flowers, and leaves with the simple spontaneity and joy of a child’s drawing."
