Friday Finds

How about a couple of  blocks this week?

Friendship Star QM Bitty Blocks: November’s Friendship Stars  These are called Bitty Blocks and are from Quiltmaker.  Click here for a good little tutorial on making these Friendship Star blocks. They have more small blocks...just follow their links.  They are a great size for borders, too.

Turning 20 or Taking a Turn quilt pattern. Pick out just 20 fat quarters and stack them up in 5's (4 times) and cut per this diagram and SNAP you have a whole quilt ready to sew! This works great and in a single weekend you have a quilt! Happy quilting! CZ1:   This is the Turning Twenty Again block....the big block.  The pin says I uploaded it, but not so.    And I am not sure where I snagged it from.  Before I get jumped on for the photo and print it for your library.

   Anyway,  I get asked for info on this one a lot, so here it is.  By using 20 fat quarters, you can create a large quilt in a weekend....easily.  Twelve blocks makes a nice size throw quilt.
  Fabric selection is important here.  It works wonderful for batiks.  I made Autumn's Carpet using this pattern.    Use a focal print and coordinate other fabrics-----not using strong contrast lets the fabric do the work.

(7) Name: 'Quilting : Applique Add On's - Season's Greetings 1:

 From Craftsy......beautiful applique patterns.  I could not resist those swirls.  Just viewing them is wonderful inspiration to add some zing to seasonal projects......which I need to get busy on.

what a great idea. Now if I can remember to buy one of these containers. Ribbon is really hard to store and this is perfect.:
  I thought this was so clever!  To keep your ribbons in check and organized, place them in a bin with holes on the sides.  The ribbon ends are feed thru the holes for easy access.  Check out the  other  So Clever ideas.

And that's a wrap for the week of Finds.  As always, please visit the original source for pinning.
  The sewing room is in total disarray as I am getting all the small stuff together to take for the class on Tuesday.  The quilts are sorted and is all the other stuff I need to take!  I feel like I am packing to move, but that's not so.
Hopefully, I will get some time to stitch up a few more of those orange peels......the stack is growing.
Happy stitching.

The "uploaded by pinner" thing on pinterest makes me a little crazy, I see things all the time I'd like to pin but won't because of it. I love the applique from Craftsy, it's so pretty.

Thanks for posting the Bitty Block pattern link. I can see a lot of places where this star can be used. So simple and so effective. Love these Friday Finds, and look forward to them each week.
