Friday Bundle Batch {Land That I Love}

Hi there! We have a very festive bundle to share with you today! I had so much fun with this bundle, be sure to scroll down to see what I made! 

Land That I Love
This week's bundle is a patriotic theme in red, cream, and blue!
You'll receive one FQ of each:
  1. Colors of Freedom Flags Denim - Wilmington
  2. Just Color Burgandy - Studio E
  3. Roosters Blue Dots - In the Beginning
  4. Colors of Freedom Words Ivory - Wilmington
  5. Colors of Freedom Stars Dark Denim - Wilmington
  6. We the People Red Stripes - Wilmington
  7. Autumn Hues Cream Tones - Penny Rose
  8. Colors of Freedom Paisley Red - Wilmington

It's not too early to think about some 4th of July sewing! :)  I am loving the Americana feel of this bundle!

I loved last week's runner pattern so much, I thought I would use the same pattern for this bundle! The only difference is that I did some star appliqué on the 4-patches! I love how it turned out!

This is such a simple pattern, but really showcases those large prints.  I really wanted to showoff the beautiful flag, and text print for this project.  

For quilting, I did loops and added stars.  It was my first time doing free motion quilting stars - they are actually really easy, and I will definitely do this quilting pattern for other festive projects!

Alright, let's get started!


Cutting: (Reserve your stripe print for binding - also use 2.25" binding strips so you will have enough from your fat quarter)
  • From flag print:
    • 3 - 7.5" x 7.5" squares
  • From the text print:
    • 2 - 7.5" x 7.5" squares 
  • From blue star print:
    • 10 - 4" x 4" squares 
  • From plain cream print
    • 10 - 4" x 4" squares
  • From dark red print:
    • 8 - 1.5" x 7.5" strips (for sashing)
    • 1 - 1.5" x 39" strip (you will need to piece this)
    • 2 - 1.25" x 15.5" strips (for side border)
    • 2 - 1.25" x 41.5" strips (for top and bottom border)
  • From red paisley print:

4-patches - make 5:

Lay your blocks out, and sew a sashing strip to the right side of each block - except the last block:

Sew a long sashing strip in between the rows: 

Now sew on your border.  Start with the left and right side.  Sew on and press. Then add your top and bottom border.  Press. 

Now it's time to add your stars.  Use your fusible web - fuse fabric to fusible web.  Trace stars onto the paper side of the fusible web.  Cut out and iron on according to package directions.  Stitch stars into place with your desired stitch.  I did some fun sketch stitching for this since I wanted it to be a little primitive to match the Americana style.  

Now you are ready to baste, quilt and bind! 

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and whip up your own Land That I Love table runner! :)

Talk to you soon,

Lace Zipper Pouches

Hi there! Today it's my turn for the Lily blog tour!  Aren't these fabrics just lovely?  Sue Penn did such a beautiful job designing this line.  I am really loving the soft spring colors in this line of fabric.  They are perfect for any project, but they would be awesome for any Spring sewing! 

For my project, I thought it would be fun to showcase these lovely prints with some Nesting Lace Zipper Pouches:

I LOOOOVE how they turned out! I think this fabric and lace zippers were made for each other! :)  I did a tutorial for these Lace Zipper Pouches a while back, and it is one of my most popular tutorials.  I wanted to share a little bonus for you though - in this post I am sharing a size guide so you can make these cute pouches in three different sizes so you can nest them. Be sure to scroll all the way down for the size chart and link to the tutorial. 

 I got a close up of each pouch and the lining so you can see how well these fabrics work with one another! 

The large bag finishes at:  9" x 11".   I used the cute pink plaid for the lining in this bag and I think it just goes so well with the main mint print:

I think the medium bag is my favorite of them all - it finishes at: 8" x 9.5".  This yellow plaid is perfect.  I love the softness of the yellow and the floral lining just really makes my heart happy!

Lastly is the small size which finishes at: 6" x 7".  This floral print paired with the dainty yellow print for the lining is a lovely combo! 

Lace Zippers - HERE - I used the 12" Beige zippers for these pouches

I'm glad you stopped by!  Be sure to stop by the other blogs for more fabulous projects made with Lily!

Friday Bundle Batch {Tickled Pink}

Happy Friday! We have a cute summery bundle to share with you today! I had so much fun sewing with this bundle of fabric! Be sure to scroll down for my project and tutorial! :) 

Tickled Pink

This week's bundle is all about flamingos!   Featuring the Flamingos collection from Windham - this is one of our favorite summer lines!
You'll receive 8 cuts of each:
  • Flamingos Polka Dots White - Windham
  • Dainty Darling Diamond Pink - Riley Blake
  • Swiss Dots Black - Riley Blake
  • Flamingos Mini Pink - Windham
  • Flamingos Mini Lime - Windham
  • Love Black Script - Robert Kaufman
  • Wonderland Two Gingham Pink - Riley Blake
  • Flamingos Scenic - Windham

When I saw this bundle, I knew I wanted to really showcase those flamingos! Aren't they so fun! I came up with this simple pattern for you guys! This pattern is great for those large print that you want to show off! :) 

I did a loopy-loop quilting pattern on this runner and I love how it turned out! Loops are my go-to free motion quilting pattern because they are so easy and quick! If you wanted to straight-line quilt this - it would look just as lovely!

The great thing about this pattern is that you could easily make it into a full sized quilt.  Just add more blocks, and you have a super easy and quick quilt.  If you wanted to simplify it further, you could remove the sashing.  There are lots of possibilities with this easy pattern!

  • Tickled Pink fat quarter bundle
  • 1/4 yard of black swiss dots (this is optional - if you don't mind piecing your border strips, then you will have enough from your fat quarter.  If you don't want to piece your border strips - then you will want to purchase an extra 1/4 yard of swiss dots! 
  • 1/2 yard backing (I pieced my backing, but if you don't like a pieced backing then you'll want to pick up an extra 1/2 yard for backing!)

Cutting: (Reserve your pink flamingo print for binding!!)
  • From large flamingo print:
    • 3 - 7.5" x 7.5" Flamingos Polka Dots White - Windham
    • 2 - 7.5" x 7.5" Flamingos Scenic - Windham
  • From pink prints
    • 10 - 4" x 4" squares ( I did 6 of the gingham print, and 4 of the diamond print)
  • From green flamingo print
    • 10 - 4" x 4" squares
  • From black swiss dot:
    • 8 - 1.5" x 7.5" strips (for sashing
    • 1 - 1.5" x 39" strip (you will need to piece this)
    • 2 - 1.25" x 15.5" strips (for side border)
    • 2 - 1.25" x 41.5" strips (for top and bottom border)

Alright, let's get started: (Before you start piecing - you need to be mindful of the direction of your prints! A lot of these prints are directional, so just make sure you have them all going the right direction)

4-patches - make 5:

Lay your blocks out, and sew a sashing strip to the right side of each block - except the last block:

Sew a long sashing strip in between the rows: 

Now sew on your border.  Start with the left and right side.  Sew on and press. Then add your top and bottom border.  Press. 

Now you are ready to baste, quilt and bind! 

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and whip up your own Tickled Pink table runner! :)

This was super easy to stitch up!  Like my previous stitching patterns, I kept this really simple! You only need to know three different stitches to complete this pattern:

Raspberry and Cream BOM {Block 5}

Hi there! Today I am ready to share my fifth block for the Raspberry and Cream Block of the Month!!

***We only have a couple of finishing kits left for this and we are unable to reorder fabric since the manufacturer is out of this fabric! Also if you would like your backing to match, be sure to snag some before we are completely out of the fabric! Purchase HERE

 For backing you'll need to purchase 5.625 yards (44" wide) or 2.5 yards (108" wide) backing. 


Double X

For this block you will need to use fabrics A, B, and D from your Blocks Kit:

This block was so easy,  and very straightforward to put together.  I really did enjoy putting this one together! In fact, I enjoyed it so much, I forgot to stop and take my picture of the layout of the block before I sewed it together.  I was just in the zone I guess! But really, I had no problems with this block.  I did iron my seams open again, and it seemed to really help with everything matching up nicely and also seems to reduce bulk.  

Your blocks should measure 9.5" x 9.5" unfinished.  The best way to ensure you get that is to use a 1/4" presser foot!

Here is the schedule for the block of the month:

Block 1: Air Castles January 17
Block 2: Bear's Paw January 31
Block 3: Bird's in the Air February 14
Block 4: Cat's Cradle February 28
Block 5: Double X March 14
