Easy Peasy Bag….

If you are anything like us, we assume y’all get a “hanker-ing” to make a purse or tote bag.  🙂  Jelly rolls make it easy, that’s why we LOVE them!

We hope you are enjoying all of the possiblities you have when you use these great Jelly Rolls.

Jelly Roll Week…all about coins

Coins, coins, coins……I bet you’ve seen them all over the ‘world wide web’ this summer, and you are dying to make one!!  They are easy peasy, and you will love the end result!

Using a jelly roll makes it so much easier, because your 2-1/2 inches are already cut, all you have to cut is your desired length.  We chose 5 inches for our example, here. Then you use a coordinating fabric for your sashing and BAM, your done!

If you have made one before, or if you make one after watching this video, upload a photo of your finished project to the forums!!  We’d LOVE to see it!

Thanks so much for joining us this week, for Jelly Roll Week!  We have lots of fun in store.  Videos everyday, a giveaway or two and lots of fun ideas to get you thinking for the holidays!  🙂  Stay tuned…..this is gonna be fun!

Zippity Doo Dah!

My, oh my, what a wonderful day! Plenty of sunshine, heading my way…Oh sorry:)

This is my inspiration:qam_a_quiltsandmore_0209It’s a darling quilt from the cover of the Quilts and More magazine…I was looking at it and realized that it was made with half square triangles. Wow! I thought, I could do this with a charm pack.

So, I took two Zippity Doo Dah charm packs and made half square triangles using Kona Muslin (80 5in. squares) then laid them out…It was much easier than it looks! My kind of quilt!  I am so pleased with the results…Here’s mine all finished up:  p4130113I love how the striped squares turned into zig zags. This has got to be the cutest Americana Fabric! I can’t wait for picnic season to get here!  For the magazine and pattern click HERE.
