Pretty Playtime Quilts - Quilt Along

It is no secret that Strawberry Biscuit by Elea Lutz is one of my favourite fabric ranges and so when she and Kimberley from the Fat Quarter Shop team up to produce this wonderful book - well - pretty amazing sums it up.

This book features absolutely adorable designs for you to make and sew.  The instructions are really easy to follow to make these designs.  I am here today to share the block I made for the Pretty Playtime Quilts Quilt - Along.

I made the Cottage block and with clear instructions it was easy and quick to make.

I was ever so lucky to have travelled all the way to Salt Lake City to Quilt Market.  While I was there I was able to get Elea to sign my copy of the book - this I will treasure.

The book is available HERE and I have used the upcoming Flower Sugar Sweet Carnival range by Lecien (due out in October) to make my block with.

You can check out all the blocks made by all the other talented bloggers here

Little Ruby Quilt Along - Fat Quarter Shop - Part 2

Back today with Part 2 in the Little Ruby Quilt Along together with Fat Quarter Shop.  You will find all the details for the start of the quilt along in my first post here.  It has all the links for the pattern and all you need to get started as there is still plenty of time to join in.

I have enjoyed cutting out and starting to put my star blocks together.  This pattern by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Bossoms is just a beauty and I have to say that the Creative Grid rulers have been fabulous and easy to use.

You can check out the Video Tutorial here. 

I haven't used the Creative Grid rulers and I have to say that these worked a treat.  With the circle indents in them cutting out the triangles quickly was a breeze.  It also saved lots of turning around of the ruler as you go so there was a lot less movement in my strips as I went.

These star blocks have been quick and fun to sew and make.  The key being to pin and gently press your Triangles as you go.  

Hope you are enjoying making your own Little Ruby Quilt.

Happy sewing
