Simple Sixteen - Milk Sugar & Flower

Hi there! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  I have a darling quilt to share with you today! One of my favorite patterns I have designed is my Simple Sixteen Pattern.  It is a quick pattern that comes together quickly, and is a great way to showcase an entire line of fabric! 


My Mom (Nettie) made this lovely quilt, and so I thought I would let her tell you about it! :) 

Pieced by: Nettie Moore
Quilted by: The Stitching Room

Hi!  I'm Lindsey's mom, Nettie and I am also her pattern tester!  I tested this pattern for her months ago, and made the first version of it HERE.  I quickly fell in love with this pattern because of it's simplicity and the ease at which it comes together!

After I made the first one, I knew I had to make this pattern again! So when Milk Sugar & Flower came out, I thought this would be the perfect pattern to showcase all of those darling prints! I was not disappointed! I love how it turned out, and I could not be happier.  


Purchase Milk Sugar & Flower HERE

 I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt, and I can't wait to make another from this pattern! :)

April Mystery Project #3 {Quilted Star Pillow}


Hi there! Today I'm sharing our last April Mystery Project! I can't believe it's the end of April! Where did this month go?! Alright, let's get to it! 

Quilted Star Pillow:

I have an obsession with stars and pillows.  So I thought it would be fun to combine the two and make this fun pillow!  Heaven knows I have enough pillows, but really what is one more?  They are great for adding pops of color in your home, and the great thing about them, is that when you are sick of it, you just take the cover off, and put something new on!


I love how it turned out! The prints in this fabric line are so saturated with color and they just make me happy!

Alright, let's get started!

You should have plenty of fabric left over to pick and choose which fabrics you'd like to put in your pillow!  Below is the list of what I used exactly:

Cutting: 

5 - 4" squares out of the floral print (I fussy cut this print, so that I could get those lovely flowers)
4 - 4" squares out of background fabric (cream oval elements)
4 - 3 3/8" squares out of the navy feather print- Cut in half diagonally
4 - 3 3/8" squares out of teal bird print - Cut in half diagonally
10 - 3 3/8" squares of of cream oval elements fabric - Cut in half diagonally



This block is made out of these square in a square blocks, these are super easy to make!
Layout your pieces:


Take one triangle and place it right sides together with the square.  Your corners will hang over on each side, so make sure you get it centered.  The best way to do this is to find the center point of the square and the triangle and then pin into place, then sew on using a 1/4" seam allowance:

Do the same thing to the opposite side and then press

Now you will do the same thing, on the remaining sides, make sure you have your triangles centered. This is important so that you don't lose your points!



You will make the following blocks:

Layout your pieces and then sew into rows, I pressed my seams open. 

Now sew your rows together to make your block. Press seams open. 


Finished Block will measure 15" x 15"

Now this is where you can decide whether you want to turn it into a pillow, or just make a mini quilt. I decided it would be fun to make a quilted pillow with mine.  

To do this, you will baste your block with some batting (no backing)

Quilt as desired.  I quilted with some simple straight lines. 




  
 I also wanted to show you the pattern this makes in a repeat! Wouldn't this make such a fun quilt!

We will be back with more mystery projects for June!

Talk to you soon,

"One of Those Days' Mini Quilt

Hi, I'm Heather from Quilts Actually, and I'm excited to be a part of Fort Worth Fabric Studio's Mini Mania!


Warning: My mini is not a quick and fun mini.  It is an exercise in precision cutting and piecing.  If you enjoy that type of piecing, it is fun, but you need to have a consistent scant 1/4" seam allowance for this to turn out.  However, if you are up for the challenge, I think it is quite a striking design!

This is called the "One of Those Days" mini, because I had a lot of those days while making this small quilt!  I love the finished project, but it just seemed like everything was working against me finishing successfully, and this is not a project that has a lot of room for error.

If you follow me on Instagram (@QACreations), you will have seen some of those days I had... and don't look too closely at the finished product or you'll see one of those days I missed!

Fabric Frenzy Friday #60


Happy Friday! :) My sewing space and I have a date today. I am more than slightly embarrassed at how messy my sewing room has become.  I am very messy when I am sewing or creating anything for that fact! I get in the zone, and the last thing I want to do is clean up!  It gets to the point where I can no longer see my sewing table, and so I have to clean in order to sew! 

I also have a little two year old helper that loves to hang out with me when I sew.  She mostly takes fabric off my shelf and hides it places, and then loves playing with spools of thread...so I've got thread and fat quarters spread all over that need to be put back into their proper places.  So I'm not sure how much sewing I will get done this weekend, but at least I will have a clean space when I am ready! 

I hope you all have a fun filled weekend full of sewing!!

Now let's get to this week's bundle:

April Mystery Project 2 {Hexie Mini Quilt}


Hi there! It's time for our second Mystery Project of the month! This time we are making this fun Hexie Mini:

I have recently fallen in love with making hexies, and thought it would be fun to do a small project with these addicting little shapes! :) 

The great thing about making hexies, is that you can take them on the go! If I know I will be taking a long car ride, or maybe waiting for my daughter at dance practice I will take my hexies along with me and stitch them up!  They can be very relaxing to make, and I really enjoy stitching them when I'm on a netflix binge!  


Alright, let's get started!
