Friday Finds

Are you ready for another wonderful day of fabulous finds?

I’ve found some unusual and some lovely tutorials for you.  Today I’m featuring

Bottlecap Trivet by Jos Country Junction

Woven Jelly Roll Rug by Jen at Quilting in the Rain

Freezer Paper piceing by dquilts

Sending candy in the mail by sometimescreative

One-seam Flying Geeese Block by thecraftyquilter

1.  Bottle Cap Trivet –  It’s simple, it’s lovely and oh, so useful.  The tutorial for this trivet using fabric and bottlecaps can be found here.


2. Woven Jelly Roll Rug

Just seven steps and a Moda Jelly Roll pack (or cut your own) and you will have a rug.  You will find the tutorial here.

3. Freezer Paper Piecing Technique – Maybe this technique will make paper piecers out of some of you hold outs!  Check it out here.

4.  Sending Candy in the Mail – So maybe this is a little off-beat, but who wouldn’t like to receive “Hot Tamales” or “Black Crows” (for me) in the mail?  You can find out more about this here.

5.  One-seam Flying Geese Technique – I’ve seen a video of this before but these photo/writing instructions are so clear.  It might make a Flying Geese lover out of you!  You can find Julie’s tutorial here.

I hope you’ll check out the blogs that I feature here and also look around their blogs beyond that tutorial.  There’s some amazing stuff out there in Blogland and it never ceases to amaze me how creative we all can be…and maybe even a bit wild and wacky too.  Enjoy your travels to the blogs, leave them a comment and tell them you heard about the at  All bloggers like feedback so don’t be afraid to comment.  Just be nice–it’s not the place for nasty.

Happy Stitching



About Quilter in Motion

I'm a full-time RVer, quilter, artist, and avid reader. I do all my quilting in a 34' RV called a fifth wheel, so named because it is towed behind a truck and the hitch sits in the bed of the truck thus the "fifth wheel". I get asked a lot how I can quilt in such a small space and I thought I'd write about how I do it, including some hints and tips that might help all quilters.

  1. I think it is interesting that I have three of these finds bookmarked. Brillant minds think alike.
