Fabric Frenzy Friday

Happy Friday! We have a really fun bundle to share with you today! I really enjoyed sewing with these patriotic fabrics! :) Be sure to scroll down to see what I made! 



Born in the USA is this week's Bundle Batch!  This bundle features the 24" Explore America Panel plus red, white & blue coordinates.

Fat Quarter & Half Yard bundles include 1 panel plus 7 different coordinates (8 pieces total).
Included in each bundle:

  1. Explore America 24" Panel - Robert Kaufman
  2. 30's Minis Dots Blue - Penny Rose
  3. Swiss Dots Red - Riley Blake
  4. Cotton Shades Fire Engine - Riley Blake
  5. Grunge Basics Cobalt - Moda
  6. Summer Cottage Scratch Texture Blue - Red Rooster
  7. Scarlet Net - Dear Stella
  8. 30's Minis Dots Red - Penny Rose
Panel included in the bundle


I just love this panel! It was hard to choose which part of the panel I wanted to use for my project! In the end I decided to use the top panel.  I wanted the panel to be the star of the show and so I decided to just add some simple borders to the panel! 



It's hard to see in this picture - but I quilted around each state! I didn't want my quilting to go over the abbreviations of each state! 

I finished it up with a scrappy binding! This fun mini quilt would be such a fun gift for a teacher! Wouldn't' this be great in a classroom?  

Alright, let's get started! 

Supplies:

1 Born in the USA bundle
1/2 yard background fabric
3/4 yard of backing

Cutting:

From Panel:
1 - 22 1/2" x 20 1/4"

From Background
4 - 2" x WOF strips
4 - 1.5" x WOF Strips

From fat quarters:
Various strips sizes all cut 3" wide and various lengths.

Step 1: Use your 2" background strips for the first border:



Step 2: Piece together your 3" wide strips until you get a strip long enough to sew on the top and bottom.  Press.  Sew your strip to the top and bottom.



Step 3: Piece together your  3" wide strips until you get two strips long enough for the left and right sides. Press.  Sew your strips to the left and right.



Step 4: Attach your last border using 1.5" background strips.




Step 5: Baste, quilt and bind with your preferred methods!

Lindsey, that fabric is fantastic and so is your project. It's perfect for a quilt for a little boy.
