Sew Colorful Club with Fat Quarter Shop

Have you heard of Fat Quarter Shop’s Sew Colorful Club?? Each month they send you a curated bundle of fat quarters that are all based off of one color. If you are looking for a really fun way to get a variety of fabrics into your stash, this is such a fabulous way to do so! The schedule of colors is as follows:

I am super excited to be participating in June with the color yellow. Yellow is not a color I generally use a lot. In fact, if you look in my stash, the color I have the least of is actually yellow. I thought this would be a really fun challenge to use yellow instead of a go-to like pink. 🙂

My wheels are turning and I can’t wait to show you what I’ve come up with in June. I hope you’ll join in the fun and sew along with us!

Quilt Block Coasters with Infusible Ink

Ever since I had my husband help me make some quilt block SVG files, I have wanted to make myself some new coasters using those files. I have heard a lot about Cricut Infusible Ink and this seemed like the perfect project to try out!

Here’s what you’ll need:

SVG quilt block file bundle 1 or bundle 2 from my Etsy shop

Cricut Infusible Ink Coasters (I prefer the ceramic ones)

Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets (I used party pink)

Cricut Easy Press 2 or other heat transfer source that reaches 400degrees F

I tried out making coasters with the square coasters and the round coasters. Here’s what I learned:

To use the square coasters, make sure your image is no larger than 3.5″ square. They don’t require as much time to process the infusible ink, but they also don’t feel as nice, in my opinion. For a Cricut tutorial, click HERE.

To use the round coasters, make sure your image is no larger than 3″. They require quite a bit more time of active heat to process the infusible ink, but in the end the result feels much nicer. For a Cricut tutorial, click HERE.

In the end, this was really such a fun project. I know I’ll be making them again as a quick creative reset.

Have you used infusible ink yet? What did you think of it??

Cotton + Steel Selvage Quilt

Have you ever finished a project that made you absolutely, completely, utterly happy to finish?? This quilt is that for me. I have been saving Cotton + Steel selvages for years and thanks to the help of some wonderful friends who sent me selvages, this quilt is now DONE!

I shared my methodology in a previous blog post (HERE) and made 99 blocks for a twin sized quilt. I made sure to press all of the seams open to help reduce bulk and now it’s waiting for a trip to the quilter! I can’t wait to see what Debbie of Hobble Creek Quilting does!

I estimate there are well over 100 different fabrics represented here from various Cotton + Steel original lines as well as Ruby Star Society lines. It was absolutely a labor of love, but I know this will be an absolute favorite forever!
