Countdown... 5 Days

If you just got here, don't miss the previous Giveaway/Gewinnspiel post featuring the new "Prairie Gothic " fabrics from Jane Sassaman. One of the items that I am giving away is a "fat quarter" pack of fabrics. For those "newbie's" to sewing, or those wanting to start, I wanted to share just what a fat quarter is and show a few examples of what you can do with a "fat quarter".

Basically a fat quarter is a half a meter of fabric that is opened up on the fold line and cut again on the fold. This gives two ca. 50 x 55 cm "squares" known as a "fat quarter". These are great for quilting and small projects like wallets, keychains, pincushions, and even pillows. Here is a fun little project that I found on Sew Mama Sew, featuring the "Mr. Blue Bird" free pattern from Spool Sewing.

I imagine these would look great perched in an Easter tree or even turned into a baby mobile. The sewing possibilities are endless.... happy sewing! Don't forget the Giveaway/Gewinnspiel winners will be announced Wednesday March 18th!

  1. Yeah, I did. I made them with "fat quarters" from the fabrics I featured in my giveaway. It is actually a really easy pattern and a lot of fun to make. I included the pattern link from Spool Sewing in my post. You should check it out.
