Friday Bundle Batch {Count Your Blessings}

Hi there! I hope you all had a good week!  Today is the official first day of Fall!  To celebrate, we are sharing a very festive Fall bundle today! Nettie has made a lovely project featuring today's bundle, be sure to scroll down to see what she made! 



This week's bundle is all about the Autumn season - the gorgeous colors & prints of Fall!
You'll receive 1 Fat Quarter of each:
  1. Harvest Gathering Cream Sunflowers - Henry Glass
  2. Candelabra Windswept Orange - Free Spirit
  3. Holiday Meadow Words Tan - Wilmington
  4. Harvest Gathering Black Leaves - Henry Glass
  5. Autumn Palette Moss Flourish - Patrick Lose
  6. Essentials Washart Creme - Wilmington
  7. Harvest Gathering Forest Paisley - Henry Glass
  8. Autumn Palette Persimmon Vine - Patric Lose
--------------------------------------------------------------

I am in LOVE with this bundle!  It's no secret that Fall is my favorite time of year, and this bundle is the perfect combination of all things Autumn!   

My mom (Nettie) made today's project using today's bundle!  She used Sherri Falls' new book Tablerunner Bliss to make this beautiful table runner. 



To make this runner out of today's bundle you will need: (click on links)




  • Use cream fabrics in the bundle as background fabrics.  You will leave the outside border off - OR -  if you want the outside border you will need to purchase an additional 1/2 yard of background.

  • Use the larger prints for the inside of your blocks.

  • Set aside the lighter green print for binding - and use 2" binding strips so that you will have enough, or if you want a thicker binding - make it scrappy with the green and orange. 


Quilting done by: Primrose Cottage Quilts 
I absolutely LOVE how the runner turned out!  It is so festive and would add a nice touch to any fall table!  It would be also be lovely as a quilt! You could just repeat the block and do as many rows as you want until it's the size of quilt you would like!  Since it's a larger block, it would work up really fast!


I hope you enjoyed today's project and bundle!  Be sure to check back next week for another new project and bundle! :)

Talk to you soon,

Ta Da! 

Here it is!  I'm sure a lot of you figured out the layout after last week!  It is a medallion style layout, with a center block and then several borders.  



This was so much fun to design and put together! I hope you guys love it as much as I do! 
I love the size of this one - it is perfect to display on the wall,  over a couch or even use it as a large table topper!  

If you want your quilt larger - you could add even MORE borders!!



I had this quilted with stars and loops by Primrose Cottage Quilts!  Also my Binding Fairy (my mom) did her magic and did the binding for me! 



I want to thank all of you who have joined in with this fun sew along!  It has been so much fun to see everyone's progress.  I hope you will join me again next month for the Christmas Mystery Quilt! :)

Raspberry and Cream BOM {Quilt Assembly


Hi there! Today I am ready to share the next step in the Raspberry and Cream BOM! 

Wow, I can't believe we are just about done with this quilt.  This month we are sewing our blocks together!  This is an "on point" quilt - so it is put together a little differently than traditional block quilts! 



My tips for assembling your quilt: 

1. Lay the entire quilt out!  I used my bed, and laid each block out. 

2. Make sure all of your blocks are the same size! I know this is probably something you already know - but I want to make sure I mention that my hourglass blocks were a little bigger than my other blocks - so I had to trim them down.

3. Pay careful attention to your chain blocks --- when laying out my blocks I had the pink squares running in the wrong direction on the sides.  I am SOO glad I caught it before I started sewing them together!  

4.  Same tip for the hourglass blocks - just pay careful attention to these - it's easy to have these going the wrong direction! 

5.  Take your time!  I spread this out between two days.  The first day I sewed all the blocks together. Once I sewed them into rows - I labeled each row with a letter and gathered them up.  The next day, I got them out again and since I labeled them - it was easy to just lay it out and start sewing the rows together! 

6.  When sewing your rows together - PIN, PIN, PIN!!! You guys, I am NOT a pinner - but when sewing rows together it is sooo important to nest your seams and pin!! Believe me, it was painful to have to pin so much  -  but I pulled through!!  Since I spent the extra time pinning, my quilt is nice and square and all my seams lined up beautifully!





Next month, I will share the final borders and I will showoff my finished quilt!! Yay!! I can't wait to share it with you guys! 

Here is the schedule for the block of the month:


Block 1: Air Castles January 17
Block 2: Bear's Paw January 31
Block 3: Bird's in the Air February 14
Block 4: Cat's Cradle February 28

Before I get to my project, I wanted to share this new book by Sherri Falls!  Tablerunner Bliss is FULL of awesome table runners!  You guys know how much I love smaller projects - and this book has 20 of them!  I am sharing a cute block from this book today, and we will be sharing lots of fun projects from this book in the future!
Tablerunner Bliss Book - purchase HERE


Today's bundle is the perfect stash builder bundle!  I always have a hard time finding browns that I love to add to my stash  -  well this bundle solved that problem.  I LOVE all of the browns in this bundle.  They all compliment one another and would look lovely in any project that requires brown! 

I decided to make this sweet block from the Tablerunner Bliss book: 



I LOVE the monochromatic theme of this block! It is so pretty!  This block is from the "Delightful" table runner that is featured on page 26.   This would be a perfect table runner for fall - it would be a subtle, but beautiful addition to any table.
