Rose Lane Buffalo Plaid / Gingham Quilt


I totally had to join in on the Buffalo Plaid / Gingham Quilt craze and I LOVE it! Patchwork squares are always a favorite of mine! 

I used two of my favorite prints from the Rose Lane Collection by Beverly McCullough (Flamingo Toes) for  Riley Blake Designs mixed with Blossom Pink by Christopher Thompson for Riley Blake Designs.

It was difficult to choose just 2 Rose Lane prints because they all are so lovely - just look at the gorgeous florals!


Let's chat more about my Buffalo Plaid Quilt and how I made it!


My Rose Lane Buffalo Plaid Quilt is a generous lap size that finishes at 60.5" x 72.5" - perfect for picnics and snuggling on the couch plus easy to quilt on my home sewing machine! 

Supplies:




There are a lot of tutorials online for buffalo plaid / gingham quilts - some use strip piecing and others simply just sew the squares together (my method).  I chose my block size based on AccuQuilt dies so I wouldn't have to hand cut so many squares plus I like the larger 6.5" size block to really show off the gorgeous fabrics!


After cutting the squares, I laid them out in my desired order and starting sewing with a 1/4" seam allowance. So easy and relaxing! Below is the layout I chose.


I absolutely loved making my Rose Lane Buffalo Plaid / Gingham Quilt. It is just the sweetest quilt! Plus I love the Riley Blake gingham backing fabric - a perfect match!


Rose Lane will be shipping to stores this month - yay! Both Blossom and Gingham are available now as they are Riley Blake Basics- hooray!

Have you made a Buffalo Plaid / Gingham quilt yet????? You totally need too :)


Have a great day and happy sewing!

Hello! I'm sew excited to share the August Sew Sampler Box from Fat Quarter Shop! August's theme is "Sparkle & Shine" and is filled with delightful brand-new products! This box is definitely full of SHINE!

Let's chat more about my favorite aqua box of quilty goodies that I receive each month!

August Sew Sampler Box-
click on links to below to purchase products at Fat Quarter Shop

The Sew Sampler Box Membership is full, but don't worry - you can sign up for the waitlist AND most of the items in this month's box are available at Fat Quarter Shop (links above).



The Modern Classic fabrics by Violet Craft included in the July Sew Sampler are absolutely awesome and perfect for bright summer sewing (or if you are a bit behind on your Sew Sampler projects - this happy bundle will SHINE up your fall/winter!) I'm excited to sew the EXCLUSIVE Diamond Divide Quilt pattern plus I love that FQS has the foundation paper piecing papers available as I don't have a large format printer at home.



The BRAND NEW Oh Sew clean Brush & Cloth Set is fabulous! I always clean my machine before I machine quilt and before starting a new project! Removing all the fuzz from the bobbin area will make your machine so much happier and stitch so nicely! Plus this set is aqua and white --- so fabulous!!!



This lime green Mini Stash 'n Store is so perfect! The lime green color is just so happy plus this small size is perfect to place right next to your sewing machine with favorite tools without them tipping over. 



It was so fun to sew the Dig Deep block! Since this is a large block - you could make a second block and make it a table topper/runner - it would be perfect! 

I'm using Lollipop Garden by Lella Boutique to sew my Goodness Grows Quilt - I just LOVE this fabric! It is just the sweetest!


Don't forget to sign up for the Sew Sampler Box wait list - each box is wonderful plus an awesome value! I can't wait for the September Sew Sampler Box! 


Have a great day and happy sewing!
