Marvelous Mini Monday

Mondays will not be quite as marvelous now that
 this little sew along is over, I hope you agree. I love
the way this quilt turned out. Lets get a closer look.
 
The setting instructions are pretty simple.
You will need to cut the following:
From green print cut: 16 strips, 1-3/4" x 4"
From brown print or stripe cut:
*5 strips, 2-1/2" x 22-1/2"
*2 strips, 4-1/2" x 24-1/2"

* Note, it might be best to use your quilts dimensions
when cutting the border strips and sashing, measurments
  given are for the mathematical lengths.Your quilt may
vary a bit and will go together better if lengths are adjusted.

 Layout blocks using photo for placement.
Piece four rows of 5 blocks and 4 sashing strips.
Add vertical sashing strips between each row
and on right and left sides. Add top and bottom borders.
Quilt as desired. I had this quilt machine quilted with
a small meander. Bind using single thickness binding.

Insta-Sew-Along

I have quite a collection of these little tool boxes.
I love to use them to coral projects. This one is
for my English Paper Piecing. I think it is time for
a new project, it has been awhile. I was instantly
inspired by this family quilt brought in by Donna. 
A quick search of the shelves in the shop and the perfect
fabric was chosen. Almost a perfect color match. You can see 
all the fabric details in the last photo. So sorry there was less
than a yard on the bolt and it is no longer available. I am sure
there is something else out there with your name on it. I will 
definitely keep my eyes pealed for another option. 
 I will be using 3/4" hexagons, mostly because I already had 
a bunch made and ready to go. I am not really sure what size
this project will finish or how many hexagons I will need. I am
going to play this one by ear. I will be posting a few updates 
here on the blog as well as more frequent posts on Instagram
and Facebook. Be sure to follow us so you won't miss out.
