Fabric Frenzy Friday

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week! We have such a happy bundle to share with you today! Be sure to scroll down to see what I made using this week's bundle! 

Buzzing Around
Buzzing Around is this week's Friday Bundle - featuring butterflies and bees and happy colors!
Fat Quarter and Half Yard Bundles include 8 different prints.
Included in each bundle:
  1. Wings N Things White Butterflies - Studio E
  2. Grunge Basics Tangerine - Moda
  3. Floriography Stitched Stripes Aqua - Riley Blake
  4. Wings N Things White Bees - Studio E
  5. Marble Swirls Turquoise - Moda
  6. Tangerine Ta Dot - Michael Miller
  7. Metro Living Rings Iron - Robert Kaufman
  8. Wings N Things Turquoise Bees - Studio E
-----------------------------------------------------

Earlier this week I shared my latest Moda Sampler Block.  I loved the block so much, I thought it would be great to make it bigger and turn it into a pillow.   I just love the combination of blue and orange together! They are so cheery and compliment each other so well! The combination of that and the cute butterfly prints - just make my heart happy! 

You can find the directions on how to make this block HERE - if you would like to make your block a 12" finished -  the cutting requirements are below. 

For one block:
10 - 2.5" x 2.5" orange squares (A)
10 - 2.5" x 2.5" blue squares (A)
4 - 4.5" x 4.5" squares (B)

Once you sew your block together, you will add a 1.5" border (white) and then finish it with a 2.5" border (blue).  Then you can turn it into a pillow using my tutorial right HERE! 



This block is super easy to make, and would look really great repeated in a quilt! I thought I would do a quick mock-up of the quilt in case you wanted to see it.  :)

Now that we shared our fabric for the week, we want to see yours!
Here is your chance to link up anything to do with fabric! You can link up finished quilts, a work in progress, a new fabric you just bought, a project made with fabric, or maybe you just want to show off some of your stash.  Anything goes--as long as it has to do with fabric!

Moda Sampler Block Shuffle {Block 22}


Hi there! I am here to share Block 22 of the Moda Sampler Block Shuffle! This block was designed by: Basic Grey


Block 22 was a delight to make! I decided to go with pink and aqua with this block - I love how it turned out. This was a really easy block to put together and came together quickly! I love the chain aspect of the block - and I'm sure this block would look lovely repeated in a quilt!

Last week I shared a project I made out of the new Holiday Wishes book by Sherri Falls. (which we have listed at a special price right now! )  I love the book and all the lovely projects included in it! It has very detailed instructions and illustrations - which makes the projects that much easier! 


The book includes a sampler quilt, which has 6 different block designs.  All of the blocks are just lovely, and so I decided to take block 5 from the sampler quilt and make it into a table topper.  I just added a 2.5" border with cornerstones and quilted it and bound it.  I love how it turned out! It is so summery and fresh!!

For the white background, I used Kona White - which we have at a special price of $5.00 a yard! So be sure to stock up!

Now that we shared our fabric for the week, we want to see yours!

Moda Sampler Block Shuffle {Block 21}


Hi there! I am here to share Block 21 of the Moda Sampler Block Shuffle! This block was designed by: Minick and Simpson





Block 21 was a really simple block to put together! I decided to the alternate layout shown at the bottom of the instructions.  I decided on red and pink for this block and I really like it turned out! When piecing this block - just be sure to pay attention to the way your corner square triangles are pieced - they are not all going in the same direction! :)

Fabric Frenzy Friday

Happy Friday friends! I hope you all enjoyed your week! We have a fun and happy bundle to share today! Be sure to scroll down to see what I've made using this week's Bundle Batch! 


Bloom Where You Are Planted
Bloom where you are planted is this week's Bundle Batch!   This group highlights Ella Blue's The Linen Cupboard.   Fresh flowers in a happy palette of turquoise and purple! 
Fat Quarter and Half Yard bundles include 8 different prints.
Included in each bundle:
  1. The Linen Cupboard Florence Aqua - Ella Blue
  2. The Linen Cupboard Sally Spot Green - Ella BLue
  3. Grunge Basics Grape - Moda
  4. Sketch Teal - Timeless Treasures
  5. The Linen Cupboard Sarah Stripe Green - Ella Blue
  6. Garden Pindot Twilight - Michael Miller
  7. Ta Dot Cabana - Michael Miller
  8. Dot Dot Dash Green Stripes - Moda
-----------------------------------  

While I was at Quilt Market, I went to Sherri Falls school house.   She introduced her new book, Holiday Wishes! I just fell in love with all of the projects from the book.  One of the many things I love about her book is that most of the projects included don't have to be just for Christmas.  They are so versatile, you can use whatever fabrics you please and you will have a lovely project!  

I used Holiday Wishes for my Friday Bundle project, and will be using it for several more Friday Bundle projects!  So we are offering the book at a very special price - $15.50 - You can purchase it HERE!


(Tina of Emily Ann's Kloset also used a block out of this great book last week for the Petit Jardin Friday Bundle project!)

I decided to make a pillow using a block out of the book.  I just love how it turned out! I love the bright and happy colors in this bundle!  The block was super easy to put together, and the instructions were great - really easy to follow with detailed illustrations.   



I added a 2.5" border to my block - that way I could make it into a 16" pillow.  If you didn't want a pillow, you could easily make it into a little table topper - which would be just as lovely! 



Now that we shared our fabric for the week, we want to see yours!

Here is your chance to link up anything to do with fabric! You can link up finished quilts, a work in progress, a new fabric you just bought, a project made with fabric, or maybe you just want to show off some of your stash.  Anything goes--as long as it has to do with fabric!

Moda Sampler Block Shuffle {Block 20}


Hi there! I am here to share Block 20 of the Moda Sampler Block Shuffle! This block was designed by: A Quilting Life




Wow, we are at block 20!! Only 10 more to go! This one has lots of little pieces, and took some more time than usual - because you need to make sure you square up your half square triangles before you sew them together! Those little suckers end up being 1.5" square by the time you square them up! 1" finished! That my friends is a little half square triangle! :) Also, note the 4 middle half square triangles are done with the easy corner triangle method - I did one wrong before I realized that! :)  I hope you have fun with this block. :)
