The Perfect Barn Mini Quilt

I little while back, my local quilt shop, First City Quilts, started a Block of the Month program with some really fun and easy Barn Quilt Blocks!  These quilt blocks were a lot of fun to put together!  I decided that instead of making the entire quilt, that I was going to make a Mini Quilt (or Wall Hanging) instead.  Let me show you how I that turned out!

Assembling the patterns

Each Barn Block kit come with everything you need for each block.  All the fabrics are high quality designer fabrics.  Perfect!  The cutting measurements and assembly instructions are easy to understand.  I love how the fabric is perfect for each block!

Finishing the Mini Quilt

I used my Juki Miyabi to quilt my Barn Mini Quilt.  Sometimes it is hard to know what pattern to quilt, so I used some heavy gauge vinyl to “audition” different designs.  I liked how the faux wood grain pattern looked over the barn blocks.

Have you ever tried Monofilament Thread by Aurifil?  I used it and it worked wonderfully!  Pro-Tip!  Be sure to tighten your top tension disks to accommodate the thinness of this wonderful thread.

Finishing things off with flange binding (which is my new favorite way to finish my projects) turned out great!  Here is a couple close ups of how that detail really makes a project POP!

Millennium Falcon Mini Quilt

I admit it!  I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan!  If you didn’t know – The Millennium Falcon is the spaceship that belonged to Hans Solo.  Well, it originally belonged to Lando Calrissian – but let’s not get geeky with the details here.  As I was saying…….I’m such a big Star Wars fan that I knew I had to make a Millennium Falcon Mini Quilt when I saw Kristy’s pattern.  It has been a couple years since I came across the Millennium Falcon Pattern by Kristy from Quiet Play.  I immediately fell in love with it because of it’s modern aspect and the many different color options this pattern provides!  Let me tell you all about my Millennium Falcon Mini Quilt!

Assembling the pattern

In the pattern, there are a few main sections to piece together and then you get to join those assembled sections together.  If you’ve never tried FPP (Foundation Paper Piecing) – no fear!  I’ve made a video tutorial (from a basic heart shaped pattern) to show you the fundamentals of this amazing technique.  This video show you about fabric placement and how to follow the numbered patterns (no matter which FPP you are working on)  Check it out!

Finishing the Mini Quilt

I used my Juki Miyabi to quilt this up.  Using this Geometric Quilting Design, to accent the modern aspects of the mini quilt, was an easy choice.

The Starburst Quilt

The Starburst Quilt is a fun and lively pattern that is perfect for the confident beginner!  Even if you don’t have much experience with foundation paper piecing, you can certainly make this amazing quilt!  Jenifer Dick (the creative genius behind 42 Quilts) designed this amazing pattern and I love it!  There are no tricky sections and the center nine patch really anchors the hypnotic optical illusion which surrounds it!  Just think of the color combinations!  This Starburst Quilt pattern finished size is 36″ x 51″ – perfect for a baby quilt.  You can even make more blocks (each block finished sizes are 15″ x 15″) to make an even bigger quilt!  I decided to make (4) blocks to make a really nice wall hanging.  Let me show you all about it!

The Starburst Quilt is a fun and lively pattern that is perfect for the confident beginner! This block is easier to make than you think!

Starburst Quilt – MATERIALS LIST

  • Nine Patch Revolution (book by Jenifer Dick and Angela Walters)
    • Starburst is just ONE of the patterns in this wonderful book!
  • Main Color (I used what I had in my stash, but if you choose a solid color, I would recommend Paint Brush Studio (PBS) Fabrics – their solids hardly fray at all!)
  • Main Contrast (I used PBS Grey)
  • Backing Fabric (I used up the rest of my main color fabric for this)
  • Binding – I did a fancy flange binding and it turned out great!
  • Quilter’s Dream Supreme Batting (because it’s the best and I love it so much)

Starburst Quilt – Cutting the fabric

Jenifer’s pattern helps get you ready to make this fun pattern.  She gives you the measurements you need for each piece.  The cutting is super easy because you are just using strips of the two colors in a small variety of sizes.  The FPP pattern is very simple.  If you can sew a straight line – this pattern is for you!  I especially loved how the pattern is one page, and not small bits and pieces that you have to connect later.  Granted, you will piece the (4) sections around a nine patch to complete one block – but THAT’S IT!!!  Easy peasy!

Starburst Quilt – Assembly

Jenifer’s book gives really great step-by-step instructions on the assembly process, which is super helpful if you aren’t sure how to pull this all together.  I was fortunate enough to attend a workshop with Jenifer showing us how to put these fun units together!  Once we made each block, Jenifer recommended a basting stitch around the outside edge of each block.  This is to prevent wonkiness (is that even a word?) when you piece the large units together.  Brilliant!

My finished quilt!

Make the Perfect Quiet Book

Quiet books are perfect for those squirmy little ones that need to sit still and be quiet.  Quiet Books are WAAAAAY better than a cell phone or a tablet because they offer imaginative play.  A Quiet Book is made of fabric (typically felt). Each page is usually focused on a different skill or interaction. They are colorful, provide a new platform for learning, and inspire independent play and creativity. These books are great for travel or moments when you might need to keep your child occupied and quiet/focused.  Here are a few more reasons to love Quiet Books:

✅playing with books helps to develop fine-motor skills and finger-type grabbing;
✅practice memory, logic and mental agility;
✅practice attention, sound, tactile and visual perception;
✅pages and removable elements are soft and pleasant;
✅different texture of materials.

There are tons of offers for patterns and materials out there.  After doing some research, I have rounded up some really great options for you to consider when making a Quiet Play book.  Let me show you all about it!

Here are some really great options for you to consider when making a Quiet Play book.  Fun and creative! Let me show you all about it! #quietbook #quietbooks #kids #handmade #cow #sheep #horse #fun #animals #oks #toy #feltbook #montessori #playtoy #book #babybook #forkids #activity #quiet #SewMuchMoore #SewMuchMooreInStore

Quiet Book Materials to consider

Wool felt sheets will be your primary material when creating your Quiet Book.  There are tons of colors available!  It’s a good idea to have a nice assortment.  These books look really great with bright and vibrant color!

You can even get pages that are precut and hole punched for you!

Don’t forget to get your eyelets and tool for preparing to put your pages together!

Quiet Book PDF Patterns

Making your own Quiet Book is very affordable.  There are lots of patterns out there and the ideas are truly endless!  Here are a few of my favorite patterns!

Quiet Book Kits

Quiet Book kits are a great way to leave the cutting to someone else!  There are tons of options out there and I have rounded up the most darling right here!  Remember, you will still need to assemble your book, but the kits give you a head start!

 

 

 

Quiet Book – Felt additions

There is also an option to simply create your own pages by creating your own scenes.  These patterns help your little tell their own story!  These patterns are fun and simple.  I would imagine that you could even assemble some of them with little dabs of glue!

Quiet Book Monthly Subscription option

The Quiet Book Queen has a great program laid out for Quiet Books!  She has Page Kits that come with the template, instructions, and ALL supplies you will need to make TWO Quiet Book pages!  Buy individually to insert into your current Quiet Book or purchase the subscription to collect them all to make your own Calendar Themed Quiet Book.

The page kit subscriptions always SHIP FREE!  No code required.

Children will learn the months of the year, while also practicing fine motor skills (snapping, zipping, tying bows, weaving), colors, shapes, letter and number recognition, and counting.  There is also plenty of opportunity for imaginative and creative play!

 

Quiet Book – ready to purchase

Sometimes, we don’t have the time to make these for ourselves.  Luckily, these can be purchased from Handmade Artisans!  This is certainly not the most economical choice and these are usually made outside of the US – but sometimes you just need to get things ordered and done!

 

You can also do a search for Completed Quiet Books on Etsy.  The selection is amazing, but I’m afraid this will not save you any time.  They are typically made to order. ✂️✂️✂️

So, pat yourself on the back for considering to make (or buy) a Quiet Book for someone special!  This will be a project that will be rewarding for you and the little person that gets to use it!

Happy Sewing!

Color Love Mini Quilt

I’ve been having fun sewing curves!  I first learned how to sew a curve when my local quilt guild hosted a Schoolhouse for the Quick Curve Ruler.  All the students learned how to sew curves, using the incredibly fun and easy ruler.  Once I learned how easy sewing curves could be, I took another class for a fun pattern called Color Love.  This pattern uses similar tools and the end result is fabulous!  Let me show you how it’s done!

I’m inserting this video, which demonstrates how easy it is to use the Quick Curve Ruler Mini.  For the Color Love Pattern, you will be cutting all your fabric in preparation for sewing.  Once you sew your first curve set together, the video also demonstrates how to square up your piece.  The more you make these blocks, the easier it becomes!

I like to keep my scraps and had quite a bit of Tula Pink Tent Stripes and Pom Poms left over from previous projects.  I love how colorful these prints are and how they play really well with my assortment of Low Volume Fabrics.

Assembling the Quilt Top

Once I figured out the layout (with the help of my Quilty friend Kelly), I just pieced it all together!  If you look closely, not every block is a curve set.  Some are simply squares!  Such a fun and happy mini quilt!

I used my Juki Miyabi to quilt this up.  I also invested in some Quick Curvit Quilting Rulers to help me with the Quilting. These rulers helped me follow the curve that the pieces take, once they are sewn together.  I love how the finished quilt turned out!  I used some of my Tula Pink Tail Feathers in Poppy to complete the backside of the quilt.  I just love how it came together!

Scrappy Nine Patch Throw Pillow

Have you ever used your fabric scraps to make something new?  I made a scrappy nine patch throw pillow with some of fabric scraps.  It was fun and easy to do.  Along the way, I was re-introduced to some of the fabric bits that I kept.

I have sooooooo many fabric scraps!  I try not to keep EVERYTHING, but I also don’t like to waste much either!  At one point, I told myself that I was not going to keep a scrap unless it measures at least 5″ x 5″.  While that was a noble thought and worked for a little bit, but eventually I found myself keeping smaller pieces more and more.  That leads to my next thought….. How large do you consider a ‘scrap’ piece of fabric?  Some folks buy yardage, while others prefer Fat Quarters and pre-cuts.  Ever since I started organizing my fabric on comic book boards, I consider items to be ‘scrap’ if it will not completely cover the front and back of a comic book board (with a little bit of overlap for pinning).

Needless to say, I had several scraps to choose from!  After auditioning several choices, I decided on a few of my favorites for my scrappy nine patch throw pillow!  I have a fair assortment of Cotton & Steel, Tula Pink, & Elea Lutz plus several others as well.  I was only pulling from my Red, Orange and Yellow scrap bin, so most of the scraps seemed to play well together.

I made some minor changes in the final layout of the pillow front.  I tried to balance the lights and darks, but in the end – I think this random layout worked out just fine!  I added a contrasting border to make the pillow top the correct size for a 20″ x 20″ pillow form.  I sandwiched this all between some really great batting (I love Quilter’s Dream Supreme) and backed it with some muslin I had left over from a mock costume I made a couple years ago.  I added some simple straight line quilting.  Such a cute and simple pillow top!

I wanted the pillow back to have an envelope closure (which is probably the simplest type of closure you can make).  I pulled more of my fabric scraps to make an oversized panel.  I trimmed and sewed and got everything to fit just right.

I sandwiched this panel with more Quilter’s Dream Supreme batting and the rest of the left over muslin on the back.  I added more simple straight line quilting which was basically some stitches placed 1/4″ away from each seam.  Really fun and easy!

For the envelope closure, I cut the back panel in half and added a scrappy contrasting binding to the cut edges.  I used the same Mustard Colored fabric and some similar Striped Mustard Fabric for the binding which played nicely with the front of the pillow cover trim border fabric.

After installing the binding, I lined up the front and the back panels.  Placing them right sides together, I sewed them up using a 1/4″ seam allowance and returning with a tight zig zap all the way around the perimeter of the pillow cover.  I gave the envelope opening points a few more passes with the needle and thread to ensure the pillow would stay together nicely.

I am really pleased with how fun and easy this project turned out!  It was a great way to be creative and use up some of my fabric scraps as well!  I think I will make a blue/green pillow cover next!

I hope you try this fun project and use up some of your fabric scraps! 😊

Happy Sewing

I know!  Sewing curves seems scary, but it doesn’t have to be!  I first learned how to sew a curve when my local quilt guild hosted a Schoolhouse for the Quick Curve Ruler, by Sew Kind of Wonderful.  All the students learned how to sew curves, using this incredibly fun and easy ruler – and you can too!  Let me show you all about our project, called the Moroccan Vibe Quilt!

Cutting the Fabric

I’m inserting this video, which demonstrates the pattern book and also shows how the Quick Curve Ruler works.  For this pattern, you will be cutting all your fabric in preparation for sewing.  Once you sew your first curve set together, the video also demonstrates how to square up your piece.  The more you make these blocks, the easier it becomes!

I spent some time (and money) on Tula Pink fabric because I love to fussy cut!  I wanted to be sure the kitties were all facing the correct direction.  This meant some wasted fabric, but I save my scraps for my 100 Modern Quilt Blocks project.  Yay!  I was able to get my first block done during our Schoolhouse.

Assembling the Quilt Top

Making the remaining 3 blocks was fun and easy.  Like I said, once you start making these – you won’t want to stop!

I used my Juki Miyabi to quilt this up.  I also invested in some Quick Curvit Quilting Rulers to help me with the Quilting. These rulers helped me follow the curve on the Moroccan Vibe Quilt top.  I love how the finished quilt turned out!  Instagram was a great way for me to get some feedback, so I took a poll to help me decide upon the lovely striped bias binding.  I ran out of the dark pink strip and pieced in some of the light pink stripe to finish it off!  Also, I used up my remaining Tabby Road Fabric pieces to make the backing.  Isn’t it scrappy and happy??!?

As Helen Robinson says, “The curves created with the Quick Curve Ruler remind us of the Middle East and its iconic curved dome buildings.  The Moroccan Vibe has a variety of layout options – a long runner or a runner with each large block rotated a quarter turn.”

I hope you make a Moroccan Vibe Quilt for yourself. When you do – don’t forget to share your project in our Facebook Group!  See you there!

Happy Quilting!

Dresden Plate Quilt Block

The Dresden Plate quilt pattern was one of the most popular quilts made during the 1920s and 30s. It was first published in the 20s but not always under the name Dresden Plate. … This block is made with fabric sewn in a series of radiating “petals” with flat sides.

 

The Dresden Plate Quilt Block is a fun and easy block to make with either pre-cut squares or even using your own fabric scraps! Let me show you how!
#Easy #Patterns #Tutorial #Simple #OfTheMonth #12” #Vintage #Modern #FreePattern #ForBeginners #Scrappy #Free #Quick #Fabric  #TableToppers #Patchwork #DIY #Sampler #Ideas #Basic #HST #12Inch #StepByStep #Quilt #QuiltBlock #Quilting #Quilter #WallHangings
#SewMuchMoore #SewMuchMooreInStore

For this quilt block, I cut my fabric pieces into these petals (or blades), sewed the top of the blades to create the point, and then joined them together.  Then I created and adhered a middle piece.  Finally, I will either hand appliqué or machine appliqué the plate onto the background fabric.
