Friday Bundle with Fort Worth Fabric Studio

Happy Friday!!!! Have you seen the super cute bundles that Jodie at Fort Worth Fabric Studio creates each Friday? These bundles make Fridays even better :).

This week I was able to create this mini quilt with the Hometown Ride Bundle.

I love this bundle!!! Super cute houses, bicycles, dots, stripes, text AND in pinks, grays, and whites! 
I knew I needed to fussy cut the houses and use the pink stripe for binding!

This bundle includes ALL the fabric you need to make this mini quilt/table topper or pillow! I have a little tutorial below so you can make your own.

Mini Tutorial for Hometown Ride Mini Quilt 

finished size 18.5" x 18.5"


Step 1: Cut (4) 6.5" square blocks. I chose to fussy cut the houses.
Step 2: Cut (16) 2.5" squares to make the corners of the larger squares. I chose the bright pink.
Step 3: Cut (45) 2.5" squares to make the nine patch blocks. I chose random prints.
Step 4: Cut (4) 2.25" x 21" to make binding. I chose pink stripe.
Step 5: Cut (1) 4" x 21" AND save 1 full fat quarter to make backing


Step 1: Make 4 snowball blocks by placing one 2.5" square in each corner of 6.5" block and sew on the diagonal.

Step 2: Trim 1/4" inch away from sewn line and iron. Repeat for all 4 snowball blocks.

Step 3: Sew nine patch blocks by arranging (9) 2.5" squares. Repeat for 5 blocks.

Step 4: Admire your 9 blocks :)

Step 5: Arrange blocks as desired and sew together.

Step 6: Piece backing.


Step 1: Quilt as desired. A piece of scrap batting works well for mini projects.

Step 2: Bind 

Step 3: Enjoy!
