Okay, so maybe it sounds like a made up name for someone who has a thing for pulling together a whole bunch of fabrics that all somehow work together in a quilt, but I feel like if I’m anything lately, it’s that – a Fabric Curator.
Early this summer, as explained in my previous post, I assembled another 72- piece bundle of fabrics and cut them all into 5″ squares.
I know, I know…it’s been a while, again! That said, what a wonderful November we had at Serendipity Woods Shop! While it’s true that we’ve been bringing in lots of pretty new individual fabrics every day, we’ve also brought in some pretty full collections too, like…
We’re also extra excited for the continued growth of our very own cheerily entitled Happy Little Bundles section. It’s actually the fastest growing section of our shop!
Some of our newest bundles include:
But I really want to tell you about another new addition that’s arrived in the Happy Little Bundles section – we call them Happy Little Scrappy Stacks, and they look like this:
Happy Little Scrappy Stacks…
…and a lap full for Sophie, who’s feeling quite festive these days.
with pretty bows…
Happy Little Scrappy Stacks are made up of 100 – 2.5″ precision cut pieces of 50 different fabrics. ‘How am I supposed to make a quilt out of that?’ you ask?
Easy peasy. Here’s one for ya…
…you pair each of your 100 – 2.5 squares with some 2.5″ Kona Snow strips to go around each one (sewn just like a log cabin block only without so many rounds), use 1.5″ strips of Kona Medium Grey (or any other handsome solid that strikes your fancy) for sashing strips, sandwich it, quilt it, toss on a binding – and you’ve got a 72″ square Happy Scrappy Quilt. It goes together quite quickly too!
This week, I’m moving on to creating a quilt with Hazel – a line mentioned above by Allison Harris of Cluck, Cluck, Sew. You may or may not see what I see, but I’m in love with this fabric line because even though it’s awfully springy – it has struck me from the start as quietly and JOYFULLY Christmassy too. I’ve decided to whip up up a quilt designed by Lori Holt (of Bee in my Bonnet/Farm Girl Vintage fame) called Sugar Stars.
Happy December, friends. I’m going to work really hard at getting right back here by week’s end with a post of my finished Sugar Stars Hazel quilt. Thanks, as always, for sticking with me 🙂
