Happy Little Bundles

And Sometimes You’re in the Game with Both Feet…

…running with the wind at your back and the road ahead is straight and long, at least for the moment!

You may remember last week’s post when I shamefully shared that I had just not managed to get my Be My Neighbor sew along block finished in time to for my Monday post, in time to share it along with the Block 4 Blueprints. WELL. Guess who had an extraordinarily productive week last week? Continue reading

Bundles, Stacks and a Finished Quilt

Hi Quilty Friends!

I know, I know…it’s been a while, again!  That said, what a wonderful November we had at Serendipity Woods Shop!  While it’s true that we’ve been bringing in lots of pretty new individual fabrics every day, we’ve also brought in some pretty full collections too, like…

and Hazel by Allison Harris of Cluck, Cluck, Sew for Windham

We’re also extra excited for the continued growth of our very own cheerily entitled Happy Little Bundles section.  It’s actually the fastest growing section of our shop!

Some of our newest bundles include:

…And despite the fact that Halloween has technically passed this year, our Happy Little Halloween Bundle of fabrics from various Moda lines continues to be very popular!

But I really want to tell you about another  new addition that’s arrived in the Happy Little Bundles section – we call them Happy Little Scrappy Stacks, and they look like this:

Happy Little Scrappy Stacks are made up of 100 – 2.5″ precision cut pieces of 50 different fabrics.  ‘How am I supposed to make a quilt out of that?’ you ask?

Easy peasy. Here’s one for ya…

…you pair each of your 100 – 2.5 squares with some 2.5″ Kona Snow strips to go around each one (sewn just like a log cabin block only without so many rounds), use 1.5″ strips of Kona Medium Grey (or any other handsome solid that strikes your fancy) for sashing strips, sandwich it, quilt it, toss on a binding – and you’ve got a 72″ square Happy Scrappy Quilt.  It goes together quite quickly too!

This week, I’m moving on to creating a quilt with Hazel – a line mentioned above by Allison Harris of Cluck, Cluck, Sew. You may or may not see what I see, but I’m in love with this fabric line because even though it’s awfully springy – it has struck me from the start as quietly and JOYFULLY Christmassy too.  I’ve decided to whip up up a quilt designed by Lori Holt (of Bee in my Bonnet/Farm Girl Vintage fame) called Sugar Stars.

Springy ,yet quietly and JOYFULLY Christmassy too – Hazel.

Happy December, friends.  I’m going to work really hard at getting right back here by week’s end with a post of my finished Sugar Stars Hazel quilt. Thanks, as always, for sticking with me 🙂
