Happy Birthday Fabric

Hello! I have new fabric arriving in stores soon. There isn't a specific date but sometime in the Nov/Dec time range. It's a birthday fabric collection. There is a free quilt project that goes along with the fabric collection for a Happy Birthday quilt.

Imagine the night before your special day getting to sleep under the family birthday quilt. I don't know what little one wouldn't love that. As the children grow older the birthday quilt will hold so many memories of past birthdays. It is sure to be a family heirloom.

The collection comes in a red and a blue color way. It's an easy quilt to make if you're wanting to make several.

Also along with the fabric collection, I have designed a table runner and place mat pattern. Using the same fabrics you can create table decor for family birthday celebrations. You can even make a hanging banner from the "Happy Birthday to You" fabric panel, how fun is that?

I'll keep you posted on the fabrics arrival and be sure to ask your local quilt shop if they will have it available.

Have a good day,

DIY Quilt Block Ornament

Supplies Needed:
Quilting fabric scraps
Favorite block pattern 4-6" works best
Button approximately 1"
Cording approximately 10"
Tassel 3"

1. Sew you favorite quilt block. If you don't have a favorite block, there are tons of free block patterns on the Internet. I used my Sizzix half square die to cut my pieces. This would be great of you were making a bunch of ornaments. Press flat and cut a back to the same size as the block.

2. Place right sides together. Tie a knot in the cording and place at the top point. Pin so the knot is on the outside of where you'll be stitching and the loop is facing inward. Stitch around the outer edge. Leave an opening along one side for turning. Clip the corners, turn right sides out and fill with fiberfill.

3. Hand stitch opening closed. Stitch a button through the center of the block, going through the block the the other side.

4. Stitch the tassel to the bottom of the block.
