Peppermint Holiday Quilt with Fort Worth Fabric Studio Christmas Blitz

When Fort Worth Fabric Studio asked if I wanted to participate in Christmas Blitz with a fabulous Peppermint Holiday bundle....I said YES YES YES! I just love all of these red and white fabrics! Plus I needed a Christmas Quilt!!!

When I saw the Peppermint Holiday bundle, I knew a scrappy Simple Sixteen Quilt by Lindsey Weight would be perfect!  This is one of my favorite patterns as it is easy to sew and shows the fabrics so well! I was able to use the entire 17 piece FQ bundle to piece the entire quilt top, plus binding (I did have to add one strip from my stash as I made a cutting oops) plus a matching pillow! See the tiny sneak of the perfect backing fabric.....

Prairie Waltz Quilt

I was so excited when Melanie (great name ;) ) from Hello Melly Designs gave me a copy of  her newest quilt pattern to sew: Prairie Waltz!   I just love her new pattern! She did a fabulous job writing a clearly written pattern with fabulous diagrams (I love diagrams when sewing!)!!!

I pulled out my FQ bundle of Cotton + Steel Boo fabric and started cutting. I love how Prairie Waltz is 16" finished size block with fussy cutting potential (love). Skeleton cats...yes! She even has a mini version of the quilt pattern available too!

Summer Wishes Table Runner with Fort Worth Fabric Studio

I'm excited to share my Confetti Table Runner with Summer Wishes Friday Bundle Batch at Fort Worth Fabric Studio. I  loved sewing with this week's happy and bright Friday Bundle Batch. The Confetti Table Runner (available in the Sew This and That book) is such a fun and quick pattern to sew! I was able to sew the entire table runner including the binding and backing with the fat quarter bundle. I even made my table runner a bit longer than the pattern as I love being able to use every bit of my bundles!

The Summer Wishes bundle features the cheerful Wistful Winds prints from Riley Blake. This bundle just makes me happy! I loved sewing it into a table runner, which brightens up my dining room!
