Odds and Ends

Odds and Ends by Julie Comstock is such a yummy collection that we just
couldn’t wait to share with you some things we are making from these fabrics.
Not just a normal label/panel fabric!

When I saw this fabric I knew it would be perfect for an upcoming wedding as a signature quilt.
Sew the panel sections into the size quilt top needed. Quilt it. (thank you Judi!), Bind it and take it to the wedding to have the guests sign the squares making this a treasured keepsake for years to come.
This fabric is perfect for labels but look how cute some of the blocks are in the wedding quilt.
Plenty of room for words of wisdom and well wishes.

This is the backing fabric and probably my personal favorite fabric in the entire collection. A fabric full of positive, encouraging words. These words should come in handy for any newlywed couple. (perfect for all of us actually) Julie can you make wallpaper like this?
Now on to project #2

Once I saw this new ruler from Prairie Sky Quilting, I knew I had to dive in and make something.
Add the Odds and Ends Layer Cake and I knew I had a quick fun project.

At first glance you may ask, What does this ruler do that is so different?
Just think SNOW BALL. (It is 108 here in Dallas, so I am thinking Snowballs.)
This ruler eliminates the need to mark your fabrics.
I used a 10″ square for backgrounds and cut 5″ squares from 2 fabrics to make corners. Lay the fabrics right sides together. (the fabric in the illustration shows as a dot on the back but it really is right sides together. )
Line the solid line on the ruler along the the two corner points and trim.

The seam allowance is included in the rulers trim marking. Once you have trimmed all you do
is take it to the machine and start sewing. There is a bonus set of triangles once you have trimmed the block.
Easy ! Easy! The ruler works on corners up to 5″ so this is perfect for moda’s charm packs also.
Odds and Ends by Julie Comstock will be in stores September 2012.
Can’t wait to see what you create from your own “Odds and Ends.”
