Today I’ve got links to some really fun tutorials including Block #4 of Meet the Makers hosted by Riley Blake and some extra cute projects made by my friend Sachiko of Tea Rose Home. All are made with my Gingham Girls and Sunnyside Avenue fabric collections. 🙂
Sachiko is sharing a tutorial for this cute mini quilt blocks at her blog Tea Rose Home.
She has used Sunnyside Avenue fabrics to make the CUTEST mini pincushions out of plastic bottle caps. Can you believe it? Aren’t they the cutest?! And wouldn’t they make a great gift for a sewing friend?
Sachiko is the master of details. Her Tiny Tin Sewing Rooms are some of the cutest sewing-related items I’ve ever seen!
You may have missed it, but Sachiko also used my Sunnyside Ave fabrics to make this cute quilted bag. You can find the bag tutorial here.
I’m a little late to the game, but here is this week’s Block #4 from Riley Blake’s Meet the Makers. Below is the video tutorial for this block as well as the fabric requirements for the version Cindy makes.
Fabric requirements per block using the Riley Blake Confetti Cotton solids:
- 4 – 3″ x 5 1/2″ rectangles (large flying geese)
- 4 – 3″ squares
- 4 – 3″ x 1 3/4″ rectangles
- 8 – 1 3/4″ squares
- 8 – 3″ squares
- 4 – 1 3/4″ x 3″ rectangles (small flying geese)
Once again, I made my flying geese blocks using the no-waste four-at-a-time flying geese method. I’ve got a tutorial here as well as a cutting chart if you’d like to do the same.
*Important note: if you use the no-waste method above, you will cut your fabrics differently than the cutting list above.
For the four outside flying geese blocks you will need one large white 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ squares and four colored 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ squares.
For the four smaller inside flying geese blocks you will need one large print 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ square and four light 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ squares.
I’ve mentioned before, I’m slightly modifying my layout and will be sharing the details of my construction next Wednesday. In the meantime, I’m making a total of 17 of the assorted patchwork blocks. Here are the links to the tutorials for Block #1, Block #2, and Block #3.
A couple of other fun projects I saw on Instagram made with Sunnyside Ave fabrics:
This dress is the Violette Field Threads Penelope made by Dandelions and Daydreams. Is that just adorable?!
And now for the green apples, this is the Sorrento Dress made by Little Lizard King.
I’m so smitten with the apples and bias plaid combination and it makes my heart happy to see them used for these cute dresses! It’s still a pinch-me moment to see my fabric designs used for such cuteness. Thanks so all who’ve shared!
