Happy Friday friends! We have a lovely bundle to share with you today! I LOVED sewing with this beautiful bundle - be sure to scroll down to see my project and tutorial!
|A Rose By Any Other Name|
Let's just take a moment to enjoy how lovely this bundle of fabrics is! When I got this bundle - I literally just sat and stared at it. I didn't want to cut into it!!
These prints are right up my alley and just make my heart happy! The prints reminded me of something I would see if I were having a tea party! So I thought a Tea & Biscuits table runner was in order! :)
I designed this pattern with one thing in mind - highlighting the fabrics. I know some patterns it's all about the block pattern - but I really just wanted to showoff these fabulous fabrics. So I designed a block pattern that I thought would accomplish that.
I wanted to use larger cuts so that you really got a feel for the fabric and see all those wonderful roses and flowers. I also did a simple wavy organic line quilting to quilt the runner. This is a super easy method of quilting - and I would recommend doing it with a walking foot if you decide on this method. This is also a great quilting pattern to use if you are a beginner quilter!
This red print with the ovals - has to be my favorite print from the whole bundle. It is so vintagey and I think I need another yard or so to put in my stash! lol ;) I also decided on a red polka dot for the binding - I thought it tied in nicely with the other prints from the bundle.
Alright let's get started!!
1 A Rose By Any Other Name Fat Quarter Bundle
1 yard of White on White Swiss Dots (this is for background and I also used it to piece my backing)
1/3 yard of Red Swiss dots for binding
- Background (white swiss dots)
- Cut 10 - 1 3/8" x width of fabric strips - sub-cut into:
- 4 - 1 3/8" x 14" strips (B)
- 4 - 1 3/8" x 10 5/8" strips (D)
- 4 - 1 3/8" x 9 3/4" strips (F)
- 8 - 1 3/8" x 4 3/4" strips (H)
- 5 - 1 3/8" x 14" strips (Sashing)
- 2 - 1 3/8" x 58 3/8" strips (top and bottom border)
- Out of various prints from bundle (I did not use the blue or red swiss dots (You can use these to piece your background or just save for a later project! You can't have too many swiss dots in my opinion!)
- 4 - 3" x 14" rectangles (A)
- 4 - 3 7/8" x 10 5/8" rectangles (C)
- 4 - 5 5/8" x 9 3/4" rectangles (E)
- 12 - 3" x 4 3/4" rectangles (G)
This may seem like a lot of sewing for one block - but if you chain piece when you are sewing your small white strips, this will go really quickly!
*all seams are 1/4"
