A heart wall hanging using tools you possibly already have. A quick How-to!

A heart wall hanging using tools you possibly already have. A quick How-to!

From Bobbi, in her own words:

‘I followed the tutorial for the friendship braid quilt using the binding
tool
as my template, but used two charm packs instead of strips. I got two
braid pieces from one charm and just trimmed off one corner on each to
follow the template. One side of the braid is lights and the other red. On the
next vertical row the colors of the braid switch. There are 8 vertical
rows, or 4 pairs. When you put one pair together the red chevron forms down
the middle with the lights on either side. The fabric for the border was
from my stash. I then used the scallop ruler that you sell (Quilt In A Day?)
to finish the edge. I quilted an allover design called Holly’s Hearts. It
measures 35″ by 49″ and makes a nice Valentine wall hanging.

Also, Forgot to mention in my how-to description that not only is there a left and right
braid, but when you cut the charms with the binding tool, remember to
reverse half of them, so one angle is going one way and one of them the other
way.’

 

Thank you so much Bobbi, for sharing this adorable Wall hanging!!  I absolutely love it!  Hope you all have a wonderful day filled with love!

Cute little Baby quilt!

For this specific quilt we used one Panache  charm pack and some matching fabric for the borders. Sew the squares into strips and  attach them in rows.  (best part:  NO CUTTING!!)   Then we used the amazing scallops, waves and vines ruler (another favorite) and did a little wavy border.  I think this turned out to be a perfect gift for a baby shower and it won’t take you  a year to make!  (well, unless you put it away after an hour or so and lose the whole project….in that vast dark  hole we lovingly call ‘the sewing’ room)  You know what I mean.  🙂

Just thought I’d share an easy and quick little project.

Enjoy.
