"Fall"ing for a Jelly Roll Race quilt

 Autumn is on it's way!  We're starting to see some fall colors popping up in the mountains- and here in the shop.  We have these pretty fall colored jelly rolls available - these are custom jelly rolls hand cut here in the shop from some of our very favorite fall prints!

Pretty custom jelly roll bundles found at The Fabric Mill!

 And we've used one of those custom jelly roll bundles to make an updated version of the Jelly Roll Race quilt!

You can see our original Jelly Roll Race display quilt here, and see the free online video tutorial on how to make a Jelly Roll Race here.  But because we did a few things different than the video tutorial, we have a 1 page pattern showing you how to make this same, gorgeous fall quilt.  When you stop by to grab the custom jelly roll, be sure to ask for the pattern that goes with it!  (pattern is free with purchase of a jelly roll)

Want to see more fun, Jelly Roll Race quilts?  We have a Pinterest board to provide inspiration!  And while you're there, be sure to follow us!

Under The Sea Baby Quilt (free tutorial)

Last week I used some of the In the Ocean fabric to make a quick baby gift for a friend of mine.  I used the Simple Gifts Baby Quilt Tutorial and whipped it up in no time!

This sweet quilt finished at 38” x 42” which is a great size for a little one.

Want to make one too?  Here’s what you’ll need:
First of all, the tutorial can be found here.

1-1/4 yard front fabric**
1-1/4 yard backing**
1/3 yard binding
batting: a piece at least 42” x 42”

**The original tutorial calls for just 1-1/8 of each fabric but for this quilt I bought 1-1/4 of both the front and the back because I needed to work around those squares.

The cheater print makes this quilt look like a cute Ocean-themed patchwork quilt!

Here are the rest of the In The Ocean prints.  I think any combination of these fabric would make a cute Simple Gift Baby Quilt!

Fly Aweigh

Fly Aweigh

I thought I’d share this yummy stack of fabrics today.  Aren’t they perfectly summery?  These prints are from the Fly Aweigh line by Riley Blake.  Last time I was in the shop I made this stack and then spent about 15 minutes trying to decide what to make out of it.  Do you ever do that or is it just me?
