Tip Top Quilt - Ciao Bella


Hi Quilty Friends! Today I’m sharing the Tip Top Quilt featuring the beautiful Ciao Bella fabric collection designed my Carina Gardner for Riley Blake Designs.

** Tip Top Quilt Pattern -Available at Payhip or Etsy **


Carina Gardner designed the Ciao Bella fabric collection as a modern twist on your European Grandma's linens and vintage soft goods. I absolutely loooooove the gorgeous floral prints!

                                        


The Tip Top Quilt is a perfect beginner quilt pattern that uses (1) 2.5" Rolie Polie of Ciao Bella plus (1) yard of sashing and optional border. 


Tip Top Quilt: 64.5" x 64.5" (with border)

Supplies:

I love the Blush Ciao Bella Floral so I added an outer border by cutting my border strips 4.5". This is also an easy way to enlarge your quilt! Just choose your favorite fabric and add a border!



I absolutely love a striped binding! When there is a coordinating stripe in the collection or a matching 1/8" stripe Riley Blake Designs basics -my favorite! I will choose a striped fabric for the binding 95% of the time. The Riley Blake Churn Dash Binding Holder is fantastic for keeping my binding organized and not in a tangled knot on my floor ;).

Jacks Quilt - Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book & GIVEAWAY

A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog #ABitofScrapStuff

Hi Quilty Friends! Today I'm excited to share the Jacks Quilt from the fabulous book: Fast & Fun Lap Quilts written by Melissa Corry

A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog #ABitofScrapStuff


I love how the blocks are like the classic Jacks Game .... does anyone remember it??? My sisters and I enjoyed playing it! 

The Jacks Quilt is also the cover quilt for the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book too. As the cover quilt uses a light background, I thought it would be fun to use Moda Chambray Grey for the background with a Dwell Layer Cake

A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog #ABitofScrapStuff


Guess what - there is a GIVEWAY on my Instagram @ABitofScrapStuff if you want to win a Dwell Layer Cake!!! Wahoo!!!!




Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book - written by Melissa Corry

  
 
10" Squares are my favorite pre-cut as I receive at least one print from an entire collection at a more affordable price. The Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book is perfect for me and my collection of 10" Squares (Layer Cakes, Stackers). There are Nine Quilt Patterns included and each quilt is so different - I love that! Melissa did a fabulous job designing all the patterns!!!

Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book is available at Amazon or Fat Quarter Shop or your favorite book store. I think you love this book!

Jacks Quilt   62.5" x 77.5"

The Jacks Quilt is a quite a large lap size quilt at 62.5" x 77.5". The larger size is perfect for taller people and/or for more than one person! When my kiddos were younger - they loved sharing quilts on the couch while watching movies. 
PS  - Don't worry my quilt is square.... the ground is uneven, but I love love love the fall leaves!!!

Did you notice that binding fabric isn't included in the supply list? That is because you will use your 10" squares to create a fabulous scrappy binding! I LOVE it!!!! 

A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog #ABitofScrapStuff

The Jacks Quilt uses (40) 10" Squares for the quilt top and binding ... so there is only  (2) 10" squares left over. I love a quilt pattern that uses almost a full 10" Layer Cake or 10" Stacker!  As you are using almost all of the 10" squares - be sure to choose a background fabric that will not blend too closely with your 10" squares. I thought the Moda Chambray Grey was perfect for the Dwell Collection as there are quite a few lighter prints in the collection.

Have a great day and happy sewing / quilting!

Timber Quilt - Forgotten Memories

 


Forgotten Memories - Timber Quilt



Hi Quilty Friends! Today I'm sharing the Timber Quilt featuring the beautiful Forgotten Memories fabric collection designed my Minki Kim for Riley Blake Designs



Shop Fabric at Fat Quarter Shop
The color palette of the Forgotten Memories collection is absolutely gorgeous and so perfect for fall! I love how well the prints and colors coordinate so I wanted to create a quilt with no background fabric. My Timber Quilt Pattern was perfect for a new fall quilt. 


The Timber Quilt pattern is a beginner friendly pattern that focuses on the prints from the Forgotten Memories collection as no background fabric is needed for this quilt! All you need is (42) 10" squares plus border fabric! Of course, you could always skip the border fabric and just use (1) 10" Stacker for a slightly smaller quilt!


Timber Quilt  uses all (42) 10" squares in a 10" Stacker. As the Timber Quilt is block based, you can easily adjust the size of your quilt by making more or less blocks. Each Timber block requires one 10" x 10" square.

I chose to add a scrappy outer border for my Timber Quilt and I LOVE it! This is a really easy pattern substitute as you just choose (4) 1/4 yard cuts instead of (1) yard cut! Plus this allows you to use 4 of your favorite prints instead of just 1!

Bee Ginghams: Sixty-Four Quilt

A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog #ABitofScrapStuff #BeeGinghamsFabric #RileyBlakeDesigns #LoriHolt #Quilt

Hi Quilty Friends and Lori Holt fans! Today I'm sharing the Sixty-Four Quilt I made with the fabulous new Lori Holt Basic - Bee Ginghams!!!!  


Shop Fabric at Fat Quarter Shop

Just look at all the lovely ginghams! The colors and variety of ginghams are absolutely perfect! Plus three ginghams are named Melanie too! 

I kept admiring the happy ginghams while I planned which quilt to make from Lori Holt's new book: Scrappiness is Happiness. I chose the Sixty-Four Quilt because I was able to make 9 Gingham Blocks using almost all of the Bee Ginghams in the collection!

A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog #ABitofScrapStuff #BeeGinghamsFabric #RileyBlakeDesigns #LoriHolt #Quilt

To make the Bee Ginghams: Sixty-Four Quilt, I decided to create one color way per block. Each block varies in the number of ginghams ... some blocks have two or three or four gingham prints each. I then organized each individual 2.5" square into different patterns based on the number of gingham prints in each block. I love the variety this gave my quilt!

I used the most perfect backing fabric from Lori Holt Bee Basics Busy Patchwork Multi! I even included the sweet sentiments print on the fabric edge when I pieced my backing fabric together.

This quilt is so perfect for a swirl ... loooooove it!

Do you have a favorite Bee Gingham color or gingham print???? I really love all the happy colors together!

I think scrappy binding was a must for this quilt! I just couldn't decide on one color.
