Friday Bundle Batch {Celebrate Good Times}


Happy Friday!! I hope you all had a great week! We have a fun and festive bundle to share with you today! Be sure to scroll down to see what I made using this cute bundle:




This week's bundle features cupcakes + a red, white & blue theme!   Let's celebrate!
You'll receive 1 Fat Quarter of each (there are 2 cuts of the focal cupcake print in each bundle):
  1. Bake Sale Celebrate Cupcakes with Glitter - Benartex/Kanvas
  2. Fowl Play Spots on Red - Benartex/Kanvas
  3. Marble Swirls Royal - Moda
  4. Parade on Main Red Stripes - Riley Blake
  5. Bake Sale Celebrate Cupcakes with Glitter - Benartex/Kanvas
  6. Meadow Sweets Red Words - Penny Rose

I had so much fun with this bundle! Those cupcakes are just delightful -  you can't really see it in the pictures - but there are hints of glitter in that cupcake print! Which makes them even that much cuter in my option! :) 

To showcase those cute cupcakes, I thought it would be fun to make some 4th of July Placemats: 
Placemat Tutorial HERE


These are so easy to make, and sew up so fast!  They are the perfect afternoon project - and would be absolutely adorable on your table for the upcoming holiday! 


To make these placemats you need:

1 FQ bundle of Celebrate Good Times
1/2 yard extra cupcake fabric (for backing)

Placemat Tutorial HERE

*This will make 4 placemats.  You will use some of your fat quarters for backing on a couple of the placemats.  If you want to make 6 - just increase your backing to 1 yard and you could easily make six placemats.





I hope you enjoy making these quick placemats! I am definitely going to have to make some more! :)

Stars and Sharks Quilt {Free Pattern}

Hi there! Today is my stop on the Sharktown blog tour!  This fabric by Shawn Wallace is so much fun and is the perfect fabric for those shark lovers in your life! :)  I loved how this fabric line had a great range of dark, medium and light blues.  So I thought it would be fun to do a gradient pattern - so I came up with this fun Stars and Sharks quilt:

Stars and Sharks Quilt Kit HERE
 45" x 45"

I started with the darkest fabric - which is absolutely adorable! I think this is my favorite print in the collection! 


I then worked my way out with and used lighter blue each time.   This is a super easy quilt - and you can easily whip up the top in an afternoon - which is my favorite part! I love quick quilts!

Stars and Sharks Quilt Kit HERE

For quilting, I used my walking foot and did 1/2" lines and followed the lines of the star.  I love straight line quilting so much - however it is very time consuming! I forgot how much time it takes to straight line quilt.  But I love how it turned out and I love the texture straight line quilting adds to the quilt! 

Lastly, I used a stripe for binding!  My binding fairy is the BEST - I wanted to do bias binding - and I LOVE how it turned out! She did a fabulous job! (Thanks mom!) ;)



Alright's let's get started!




Fat Eighth of dark blue shark print
1/4 yard of medium blue shark fin print
1/2 yard of light blue shark print
5/8 yard of water print
2 yards of background fabric
1/2 yard stripe print (for binding)

Cutting: 

From Dark Blue Shark: 
4 - 3.5” squares (A)
1 - 5.5” x 5.5” Square (D)

From Medium Blue 
4 - 6” squares (E)


From Light Blue (shark)
8 - 6” squares (F)

From Water Print
12 - 6” squares (G)

From background: 
24 - 6” squares (H)

4 - 3.5” squares (B)
12 - 5.5” squares (I)
2.5” strips for border 

From Stripe:

Friday Bundle Batch {Lime Zest}

Hi there! I hope you all had a good week! We have a great bundle to share with you today! Be sure to scroll down to see what I made using these fun fabrics!


Lime Zest

Lime Zest
This week's bundle is all about the color lime!   This pretty grouping is chock full of pretty greens.
You'll receive 1 Fat Quarter of Each:
  1. Carousel Tonal Green Flower - P&B Textiles
  2. Carousel Green Lattice - P&B Textiles
  3. Marble Swirls Green - Moda
  4. Essential Petite Dots Green - Wilmington
  5. Carousel Tonal Green Stripes - P&B Textiles
  6. Toscana Picket Fence - Northcott
  7. Just Color Green - Studio E
  8. Basic Brights Lime Green Swiss Dots - Windham

I had a lot of fun with all these green fabrics! I knew I had to make something limey! ;) I decided on making a couple of Lime Zest Placemats! 


Aren't these perfect for summer?!! They are so colorful and fresh!  These are easy to sew up and would look perfect on your table for the summer!

These placemats feature a little appliqué and some piecing - which I love! I love combining both techniques in projects.  Instead of binding, I sewed the three layers together and turned right side out.  This is a huge timesaver and I love doing this with placemats.  However, if you prefer the look of binding -- it would look great like that too! 

Let's get started!


Supplies for 2 placemats ( There is enough green fabric for you to make four placemats out of a FQ bundle - you will just need to purchase more background fabric and backing fabric)




Cutting: 

From assorted greens:

  • 24 - 2.5" x 2.5" squares
  • 16 - Lemon Zest slices (backed with fusible web)
  • 2 - large circles (backed with fusible web)
  • 2 - small circles (backed with fusible web)


From background: 

  • 1 - 12.5" x 12.5" square


Instructions: all seam allowances are 1/4"






Now you need to decide whether or not you want to bind your placemats or layer them all together and turn them right side out.

If you are going to do the latter, you will cut your backing and batting the SAME size as your front.  You with then layer in this order: batting, backing right side up and front right side down.

Then pin all the layers together and sew around the perimeter of the placemat using a 1/4" seam allowance.  Leave a 3" opening at the bottom - that's where you will turn right side out.

Once turned right side out - press the opening shut and then you will sew all the way around your placemat using about an 1/8" seam allowance.  Then you can stitch your appliqué on and also quilt your placemat however you would like.



That's it! Such a fun summery project! I hope you enjoy making it!
