Isn't this bundle so fun and summery?!  I had a lot of fun sewing with these lemonade prints!

I decided to make a simple table topper out of the bundle and I love how it turned out! This is a BIG block - but it is super simple to put together! 

The great thing about this project is that you can make the entire project with a FQ bundle and a little extra white background fabric!  The other awesome thing is that this can easily be made in an afternoon! I love quick projects!

Alright, let's get started!
1 Homemade Lemonade Bundle
1/4 yard of white


From white:
 8 - 2 7/8" squares cut in half diagonally (A)
4 - 2 1/2 x 4 1/2" rectangles (B)

From pink lemonade print:
4 - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles (B)
1 - 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" square (C)
3 - 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" squares cut twice diagonally (E)

From green:
4 - 3 3/8" x 3 3/8" squares (D)

From yellow:
6 - 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" squares cut twice diagonally (E)

From white lemonade print:
3 - 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" squares cut twice diagonally (E)
4 - 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" squares (F)

  • Start by sewing a pink b unit and white b unit together.  Press. Make 4.  
  • Then make your square in a square units.  Start by sewing two A triangles to opposite sides of your D square.  Press.  Then sew the two remaining sides on and press.  Make 4.

  • Assemble hourglass units.  Sew a pink and yellow E triangle together and press.  Sew a white and yellow E triangle and press.  Then sew the two units together and press. Make 12. 
  • Sew three hourglass blocks together and press. Make two sets. 
  • Sew three hourglass blocks together and an F square on either side and press. Make two sets. 

  • Sew your hourglass rows to the top and bottom and press. Then add your other two strips to the left and right side and press. 
  • Add your pink border.  First measure the width of your block and cut a strip that measure Width x 2 1/2" and sew a strip to the top and bottom.  
  • Measure the length and then cut a strip that measures the Length of block x 2 1/2"  - sew a strip to each side.  Press. 

Now you are ready to baste, quilt and bind with your preferred method!  I pieced my backing with the leftover fat quarters and used the yellow print to bind.

I hope you enjoy making this fun summer project!

Dresden Table Runner {Tutorial}

Hi there! I have a lovely new project to share with you today!  I am a long time fan of Dresden Blocks - and when I saw this beautiful fabric by Brenda Riddle - I knew I had to make some Dresden Blocks out of it!  It was like a match made in quilting heaven! :) 

I couldn't just stop at one Dresden, I had to make three....I could have probably made 20 of these lovelies, but I thought a table runner would be absolutely perfect.  I added some simple strips between the Dresden blocks - and voila - a perfect, pretty table runner!  

Dresden Table Runner KIT
45" x 12"
 If you have always wanted to make a dresden project, but didn't want to commit to a quilt - this is the perfect project for you!  If you are new to making this block - then I highly recommend buying the Easy Dresden Ruler - it is a huge time saver and you can use it to make all different sizes of Dresden Blocks! 

Dresden Table Runner KIT

I love how soft the colors are in this fabric, and the tiny florals are absolutely perfect for this project.  I chose to do the larger print on the backing - which is absolutely stunning!  If you buy a kit - the backing and binding is included! So you don't have to worry about buying it separately! It's all in one pretty little package - ready for you to cut and sew!

( I have included a paper template for the dresden blades - but you can purchase a Dresden Ruler separately here)

I hope you enjoy making this lovely project!

I spent all weekend working on my quilt! I was able to complete all my Double Four Patch blocks and my Stepping Stone Blocks.  I did speed up the process by strip piecing the 4 patches - instead of cutting 2" squares - I cut them into strips - and then proceeded to make my four patches.  I am all about saving time and making thing easier!

Friday Bundle Batch {Garden Bug}

Hi there! I hope you all enjoyed your week!  We have a fun bundle to share with you today!  Be sure to scroll down to see what I made using this week's Friday Bundle Batch! 

Garden Bug 

This week's bundle features ladybugs, small dots & blenders - with orange as the focal color!
You'll receive 1 Fat Quarter of each:
  1. Luv Bugs Orange Floral - Benartex/Kanvas
  2. Small Dots White/Orange - Riley Blake
  3. Just Color Red - Studio E
  4. Imagine Plus's Black - Windham
  5. Painter's Canvas Tangerine - Michael Miller
  6. Basically Low Typewriter Text Black - Red Rooster
  7. Basic Brights Red Gingham - Windham
  8. Swiss Dots Orange with White Dots - Riley Blake

I had so much fun with these fabrics!  I really love the focal print in the bundle - that's where I got my inspiration for this table topper.  This is a simple project - I just made a nine patch block and then added some corner triangles to make the block "on point" - that way I had some free space to add some cute appliquéd flowers!

I used the main flower in the orange print as my inspiration for the appliqué  - and created these cute daisy flowers and placed them in each corner.  I secured the appliqué on with some fun sketch stitching in black thread - I love this type of stitching because it is supposed to be imperfect and it really makes those flowers stand out! 

For the quilting, I did some small meandering all around the background fabric and straight line quilting within the nine patch block.  I love to combine both types of quilting - it creates a really fun texture!

21" x 21"

Alright let's get started!



For Blocks:
4 - 4.5" x 4.5" squares (A)
10 - 2.5" x 2.5" squares (B)
12 - 2.5" x 2.5" squares (C)

From Red:
6 - 1 1/4" x 4.5" strips (D)
4 - 1 1/4" x 14" strips (E)
2 - 1 1/4" x 15.5" strips (F)

From background: 
2 - 12" x 12" squares cut once diagonally (G)

Now you are ready to baste, quilt and bind with your preferred methods.  I pieced my backing with the remaining fabric from my bundle! So you can make this entire project with just the bundle and a little extra background fabric! 

I hope you enjoy making this cute topper!
