Fabric Tuesday, join us!

Fabric Tuesday is here! And on time!!

I'm about a week away from move day...and I still have a couple of projects I have to finish (eek!).  But I didn't get much sewing in this week, just a little more on my Little Ruby quilt (see the previous post). Anyway even if I don't get to sew I get to see the sewing you all do each week and it makes me happy! :) So here are some of those that made me happy this week.

We have both been busy with our Little Ruby quilt a long, so it is fun to see all your sweet finishes. Summer is busy! We had half the link ups we normally do. Hopefully we can all sneak in some sewing time with our little kids around! Here are a few projects from last week that caught my eye!

Little Ruby Quilt Along Part 2

Here we are on week 2 of the Little Ruby Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop!  
This quilt is going to be gorgeous when we're done!


This week we will share the next step, creating the star blocks.


The are made from 6 triangles.  See the ruler below, it is a must!


I love these star blocks, they kind of remind me of peppermint candy!


 And like I mentioned last week, of course Heather and I both chose to use Little Ruby fabric :)  It's just too cute!


See this ruler?  It's three triangles all connected, so much easier. It cuts 6 triangles at a time, 3 for Quilt 1 and 3 for Quilt 2.  This step yields star blocks for two quilts!


My Lucy Lu had fun separating the colors with me and placing them in stacks for each star section. I love when she can help me!

They are pieced in rows, with the top and the bottom in separate rows, that's why we don't have them pieced all the way together.


Two more weeks in the Quilt Along.  Next week is assembling the quilt and the week after is finished quilts!

Easy Strip Quilt Pattern from WoodberryWay...

We  haven't done a feature in a while. Most of our posting happens on our instagram feeds. But we got this submission and had to feature her! This is from Allison, from Woodberry Way. Today she is showing us her new FREE pattern to make this quilt from Jelly Rolls. I am pretty sure I will be making one! Love it! Be sure to check out her beautiful blog and quilts, she is one talented designer~!

Easy Strip Quilt Pattern


I had planned to have this pattern ready as the very first post on my new blog. Better late than never I say.

I'm always looking for fun, easy ways to use precuts, and this is definitely one. You can whip up the quilt top 
in an evening. That's my kind of baby quilt!




I used a Riley Blake Rolie Polie of "Bloom and Bliss", with backing and binding also from that line. This line 
isn't as easy to find these days but Nadra's new one "Backyard Roses" is even better in my opinion! The 
border is Riley Blake's medium gingham in yellow. The white is Kona Snow. 

I can't wait to show you the versions my pattern testers are making, they are adorable. Go ahead and make 
one for a new baby gift, and don't forget to tag #babybasketquilt on Instagram so I can see!
