Fabric Frenzy Friday

Happy Friday! We hope you all enjoyed your week! We have a festive bundle to share with you today! :) You can't start thinking about Christmas projects too early! Be sure to scroll down to see what we made with this week's bundle:

Sew Merry -- SOLD OUT





This week's Friday Bundle Batch is Sew Merry, (SOLD OUT)  a sweet blend of traditional Christmas basics with a hint of gold metallic.
Each bundle includes 8 different prints, as pictured.
Fabrics included:
  1. Merry Stitchmas Selvage Stripes Vintage Metallic - Robert Kaufman
  2. Floribella Green Stripes - Riley Blake
  3. Reason For the Season Red Filigree - Wilmington Prints
  4. Purely Christmas Cream Snowflakes - Henry Glass
  5. Daily Grind Green Dot - Quilting Treasures
  6. Purely Christmas Red Stars & Trees - Henry Glass
  7. Le Creme Swiss Dots Red - Riley Blake
  8. Postcards For Santa Gold Sparkle Stripes - Riley Blake

We love that this bundle is "Christmasy" but not over the top.  We decided it would be very pretty to make some log cabin blocks out of the bundle and sew them into an easy table topper! 

Simple, yet festive!  It would look lovely to make more blocks and turn it into a Christmas quilt! One can never have enough Christmas quilts! ;)


Let's get started:
Supplies:

8 Fat Quarters (reds, greens, cream/gold)
2/3 yard of backing
1/4 yard binding

Cutting for one block:


Cutting:
1- 2" x 12.5" Strip - (A)
2 - 2" x 9.5" Strips - (B)
2 - 2" x 11" Strips - (C)
2 - 2" x 8" Strips -(D)
2 - 2" x 6.5" strips - (E)
2 - 2" x 5" strips (F)
1- 2" x 3.5" strip (G)
1 - 3.5" x 3.5" Square (H)







Piece your log cabin blocks as pictured below.  Make 2 green blocks with red centers, and 2 red blocks with green centers. 



Sew the blocks into a 2 x 2 layout:




That's it! You could add a border if you would like, or keep it as is - like we did! Then you are ready to baste, quilt and bind! :)

Your little quilt is very sweet,

You show a courthouse square layout in B+W, but that isn't how you pieced the quilt [LOL!]

What size is the finished quilt?

Please see Katherine's comment. Would the cutting dimensions still be the same to make the Log Cabin Table Topper? Your sample is beautiful by the way!
