Today I’ve got links to some really fun tutorials including Block #4 of Meet the Makers hosted by Riley Blake and some extra cute projects made by my friend Sachiko of Tea Rose Home. All are made with my Gingham Girls and Sunnyside Avenue fabric collections.
She has used Sunnyside Avenue fabrics to make the CUTEST mini pincushions out of plastic bottle caps. Can you believe it? Aren’t they the cutest?! And wouldn’t they make a great gift for a sewing friend?
Project Tutorials Block 4 by Sunnyside Ave + Meet the Makers
Sachiko is the master of details. Her Tiny Tin Sewing Rooms are some of the cutest sewing-related items I’ve ever seen!
You may have missed it, but Sachiko also used my Sunnyside Ave fabrics to make this cute quilted bag.
I’m a little late to the game, but here is this week’s Block 4 from Riley Blake’s Meet the Makers. Below is the video tutorial for this block as well as the fabric requirements for the version Cindy makes.
Fabric requirements per block using the Riley Blake Confetti Cotton solids:
- 4 – 3″ x 5 1/2″ rectangles (large flying geese)
- 4 – 3″ squares
- 4 – 3″ x 1 3/4″ rectangles
- 8 – 1 3/4″ squares
- 8 – 3″ squares
- 4 – 1 3/4″ x 3″ rectangles (small flying geese)
Once again, I made my flying geese blocks using the no-waste four-at-a-time flying geese method. I’ve got a tutorial here as well as a cutting chart if you’d like to do the same.
*Important note: if you use the no-waste method above, you will cut your fabrics differently than the cutting list above.
For the four outside flying geese blocks you will need one large white 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ squares and four colored 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ squares.
For the four smaller inside flying geese blocks you will need one large print 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ square and four light 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ squares.PATTERN FREE: TUTORIAL PDF
I’ve mentioned before, I’m slightly modifying my layout and will be sharing the details of my construction next Wednesday. In the meantime, I’m making a total of 17 of the assorted patchwork blocks.
