More Gingham Girls Projects and Tutorials

Greetings from St. Louis! I am here for the Spring International Quilt Market trade show where I’m exhibiting Gingham Girls with Penny Rose and Riley Blake fabrics. It’s been a whirlwind. I’m hoping to have some fun pictures to share with you next week!

In the meantime, I have a bunch for fun online tutorials to share that all feature Gingham Girls fabric! Truly, one of the funnest parts of this first fabric collection is seeing how other people use it in projects – and these are some great ones! This cute Hoop Art is made by Bev at Flamingo Toes. I love it so much! You can find her demo for this Hello Summer project here. I need to make one myself as a summer project!

Isn’t this quilt gorgeous? This quilt pattern is called Crossroads and it’s designed by Melissa of Happy Quilting. She has the full tutorial for this Crossroads quilt pattern on her blog.

I’m in LOVE with the way these sawtooth stars made using Gingham Girls by Kairle Oaks of Happy Valley Quilter pop off the white background. You could easily make some (in any size!) using this Sawtooth Star Quilt Block Tutorial.

Another classic quilt block using Gingham Girls is this Broken Dishes version make by April Rosenthal. I love the way she made the giant mono-chromatic blocks featuring the four different colors in the collection.

She made this picnic size version for the Missouri Star Quilt Company monthly pattern reboot. You can read more about how April made this Giant Broken Dishes quilt here.

And finally, speaking of Missouri Star, guess who else has a fun new quilt tutorial featuring Gingham Girls? None other than Jenny Doan! *pinch me* Check it out!

If you’re looking for a little Gingham Girls fun, remember, I’m curating the June Quilter’s Candy box! (*hint, hint* – and word has it the July box is going to be pretty amazing too. Just sayin’)

Gingham Girls is available from Lou Lou’s Fabric Shop, Lady Belle Fabrics, the Fat Quarter Shop.

    I am completely and totally in love with Gingham Girls and the projects you show Amy and cannot wait to begin using the fabric. Brings out some nostalgia in me and I can think of a million ways to use this fabric. I checked out Joanne’s to see if they carry it and was disappointed that they do not so I will order a batch online. Love your blog and so admire you, am glad I happened upon you.

    I need to get some serious half yardage or more of all of this fabric.
    I am so happy that Lady Belle has the fabrics. It is so good to live in the USA and get the goods and the goodies. I hope to procure this fabric very soon
    Thank you so much dear friend for sharing these pattern ideas.
    I know you are having a great time at the quilt market.

    I am in love with Gingham Girls – have been following all articles about it since I first saw it. It brings back so many memories of the homesewn gingham outfits my Mom would make for my sister and I. She always got green or blue because of her red hair. I was blonde, so got the reds and pinks. Love the designer’s interpretations using the fabric!

    I got a new Talbot’s catalog on Monday that featured so many clothes and even leather shoes looking as though Gingham Girls was their inspiration. I was so very surprised!

    I Iove the Gingham Girls and the patterns but I can’t seem to find the Crossroads pattern mentioned. When I searched Melissa’s Blog it didn’t seem to be the same one?
