Avenue Quilt

Avenue Quilt Pattern, Jelly Roll pattern

I waited to share this Avenue pattern in hopes that the cover fabric would be in stores by now, but since fabric is all running behind, I couldn’t wait any longer to hit “publish” on this post!  

This Songbook collection by Fancy That Design House for Moda is definitely one of my favorites (if not my favorite) of the year.

It was supposed to ship in May, so hopefully soon it will be available…it’s worth the wait!

This Avenue pattern is a spin off my Breezy pattern, one that can be made in 4 sizes with pre-cut 2 1/2″ strips or yardage. 

It’s a quick quilt and a great way to show off the print in strips!

Kaitlyn quilted this for me in loopty loops

I used one of my favorite 108″ wide back fabrics for the backing.

Avenue can be found here as a PDF pattern, and here as a Paper pattern.  

We have been busy busy busy with baseball games, birthdays, preschool/elementary/middle school graduations, field days, and weekend camping trips.  After last year I’m loving every second of it, and feeling so grateful to have places to go and thing to do again!  

 Jane turned 5 the end of May, and it feels like I had her yesterday.  It went by in a blink! 

Have a great day!  -Allison

A Summer Runner and Sew Sampler 2021

Summer feels right around the corner, and I have a summer table runner pattern in the newest issue of Quilts & More out now!  It’s a super easy, stash friendly table runner (or wouldn’t it make a cute quilt?).  

This is my 3rd (or 4th?) time designing a block for the Summer Sampler quilt-a-long, and sign ups are going on now and it starts June 7th!   This is such a well designed and organized quilt-a-long, each week you get a new block pattern emailed to you, and it will push you to learn some new skills hopefully!  This year the theme was “vintage blocks” and we each chose a traditional block as inspiration. 

I’m not supposed to tell you which traditional block I chose…but it rhymes with myrish train.  ;) 

 

You can sign up here for the Summer Sampler, and use the code CLUCKCLUCKSEW for $5.00 off.  

I’m hoping to squeeze in some more fun summer projects this year…and get a head start on a cute fall quilt!

Tulips

Tulips Quilt Pattern, Jelly Roll or Layer Cake

I’ve had this Tulips pattern on my “quilting to-do list” ever since I made the table runner version a couple of years ago.  My Grandpa loved tulips and planted hundreds of them in his front flower beds along their busy road in Idaho Falls, so they bring back memories!

I made this pattern to work well with pre-cut 2 1/2″ strips (one jelly roll makes the Throw or Twin size), or 10″ squares, or fat quarters…or you could use scraps!    I always have random chunks of fabric in my stash, and the easiest way for me to use them is to cut them into strips and put them in a quilt like this one!

I used a random assortment of fabrics, mostly basics I already had, but I pulled the colors from this gorgeous floral print.

These blocks go together easily, and if you have Diagonal Seam Tape, it will save you a thousand hours (minus a few) not marking diagonal lines.

Again, Kaitlyn chose and did the quilting on this one.  This small Baptist fan is my all time favorite quilting design.   

The backing fabric is a 108″ wide backing by Riley Blake I purchased here.  I love that companies are making more wide backing options!!   

I usually buy 2 yards of them any time there is a sale, which is usually a perfect amount for any throw size or almost twin size quilt.  They’ve spoiled me though….I dread anytime I have to actually piece a quilt back even though it takes maybe 5 minutes!

The binding is a Blossom basic by Riley Blake…definitely my go-to basic in my fabric stash.   It’s well priced and there are so many great colors!

The Tulips pattern can be found here as a PDF, or here as a Paper pattern.   

 

Happy Mothers Day friends!
