BLOG REMIX – Charm Pack Placement

We’re shaking things up on the Jolly Jabber! We are bringing life back to our old projects with Blog Remixes! Every other Thursday from today until November 15, we will be throwing it back to one of our tutorials with new fabrics, notions, tips and tricks to inspire you to make your next project. Whether you’ve seen this project before or it’s your first time, there’s a remix project for everyone. For the first remix, we are bringing back the Charm Pack Placemats tutorial we did with Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life in 2016!

Fabric Requirements

Here is what you’ll need to make this project:

Video Tutorial

Sherri even did a video tutorial on the Charm Pack Placemats with Kimberly when she came to visit us in 2016! Grab your materials and follow along with us as we make this beginner-friendly project:

Quilt Along

We even had some awesome quilty friends make their version of the Charm Pack Placemats:

Quilty staffer Codi made hers using Homegrown by by Deb Strain for Moda Fabric. On the back of each of her placemats, Codi used a fussy cut from the Homegrown Night Sky Black Quilt Panel for a charming touch to her project!

Karin of Blue Pipe Designs (@kpud) made her placemats using Foundation by Sassafras Lane Designs for Windham Fabrics and actually put a layer of Insul-Bright in her placemat. This allows the placemat to double as a large pot holder for hot objects!

Linden of Vine Lines (@vinelines) used Whispers Muslin for Studio M to make her project. She adjusted the pattern to cut the small squares first and then joined them to make the cutting neater. She also used OdiCoat – a water resistant gel – to paint on her mats so that they are good for table use with her two small children.

Quilty staffer Elva made her placemats using Peacock Holiday Flourish by Peggy Toole for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Elva made her placemats for her friend’s housewarming!

Quilty staffer Codi also made a set of placemats using The Good Life by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics.

Quilty staffer Nancy made her placemats using Return to Winter’s Lane by Kate & Birdie for Moda Fabrics. Nancy chose the fabrics in her placemats because of their holiday theme!

Susan from FQS made her placemats using White Christmas Metallic by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics.

Sondra from Out of the Blue Quilts (@sondradavison) made her placemat using Sundrops by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. In lieu of using a charm pack, Sondra made her placemat using the Sundrops Layer Cake!

Share with #CharmPackPlacemat

An adorable way to store your wonderclips, thread, quilting notions, cards, change and more, we are sew happy to present the Double Zip Pouch by Sweet Jane’s Quilting and Design! These finish at 4″ x 5″ so they’re great for throwing in your bag or attaching to your keys with the D-ring. And since they are easy to put together, you can make a bunch at a time, which is great for gifting!

Fabric Requirements

Here’s what you’ll need to make your Double Zip Pouch:

Sew Along

The first time we saw this adorable new pattern by Sweet Jane, we couldn’t help but whip out a few in different collections! We had some of our wonderful quilty sample makers create some in a variety of collections to show the versatility of this pattern.

Garden Variety by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics with Apple Green 24″ Handbag Zipper and Tangerine 24″ Handbag Zipper

Garden Variety by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics with Robin’s Egg Blue 24″ Handbag Zipper

Guest Room by Kristyne Czepuryk for Moda Fabrics with Crazy Plum 24″ Handbag Zipper

And that’s it! Great for hanging off a bag or key ring, these Double Zip Pouches keep small knick knacks in one place and easily accessible. Two of our sample makers used just the D-ring and one added the Nickel Swivel Clip with the ring!

2018 FQS Summer Book Club – Betsy Chuchian

We are now on our third week of our 2018 Summer Book Club! This week’s featured author is a historical quilt expert, teacher, quilt designer, Moda fabric designer, and of course book author, Betsy Chutchian. We got to know her during the process of writing the Classic & Heirloom Quilt Book with her, and it is fascinating to hear how quilting is woven into her own family history and how she draws on that for inspiration.

The Classic & Heirloom Quilts Book is Betsy Chutchian’s first book with It’s Sew Emma. The book combines 1800’s inspiration with current sensibilities for eight opulent quilts! You can view more of the quilts in the book, as well as hear from Betsy, in this video.

We even have some coordinating patterns to go along with this book! The Round Up Quilt, Bear Tracks Quilt, and Sunshine and Shadow Quilt Patterns go great with the gorgeous, 1800s inspired quilts in the Classic & Heirloom Quilts Book.

Top: Sunshine and Shadow Quilt, Middle: Round Up Quilt, Bottom: Bear Tracks Quilt

We also have a huge giveaway at the end of this year’s Summer Book Club! Click below to enter by filling out a quick form. Fill out all 10 forms from each week of the 2018 Summer Book Club, and you’ll be entered to win!
