Today’s post is part of a series called Monday is all about Fabric.
I don’t know about you, but fabric is EVERYTHING! I love buying it, petting it and then gushing with you about it. I’ll show you my latest fabric purchases and where you can buy it too.
Get access to the Free Pattern Library
In addition to all of my free patterns, you’ll be able to stay connected and know when the next quilt along is or when a new quilt pattern becomes available.
Glow Up Bundle
This bundle was created especially for the Hello Posy Quilt. You will receive (12) fat quarters and (1) quarter yard cut. This is enough for the foreground for the quilt size in the book (60″x60″). The quarter yard cut is for the flower centers.
Single Background Option: Listing has an option to add 2.75 yards of background fabric to your bundle. If you click one of the fabric options, it will show you what the quilt will look like in that option (there’s a slight delay to the color change). Occasionally, your background may be cut in two pieces and if this is the case you’ll be given an extra 1/4 yard cut.
Scrappy Background Option: If you prefer a scrappy background, you’ll find background bundles here. You need quarter or half yard cuts!
Deep Sea Bundle
This bundle is for the Good Girl quilt in the large throw size (though will also work for the lap size, there will just be a few extras).
You will receive (7) 1/2 yard cuts of low volume fabrics for background and (13) 1/4 yard cuts for foreground. This will be enough fabric for the quilt top.
Grab a copy of my book,
A Life With Quilts-Featuring five quilt patterns, throw to twin size. -Most of the pattern are scrap and fat quarter friendly. -All patterns are for all skill levels. -Includes methods and tips for choosing fabrics, finishing a quilt and personal stories.
This bundle was created especially for the Trippy Quilt. You will receive 20 quarter yard cuts (1/4 yards). This will be enough to make the 60×60″ quilt size as shown in pattern. If you are making the larger sizes from Trippy pattern, just add a few more prints! This bundle is meant to be fairly similar to this quilt.
This bundle works for two patterns:
Balance Background Bundle
You will receive 12 fabrics shown in pictures. This is a bundle of 1/2 yard cuts.
The purpose of this bundle is for making scrappy backgrounds. Included is a mix of busy, middle and whispery low volume types (read more about the different types of low volume fabrics here) to give your quilt a balanced background, but still make it fun and scrappy.
Quilt making is the process of thoughtful stitching, design, care, heart, mindfullness and time to create a practical, warm piece of usable art.
My name is Melanie and I'm happy you are here.
Do you make quilts too? I'd love to hear from you.
