Summertime Sewing

Are you enjoying your summer so far? Keep reading for a great summer project combining colorful fabrics and a fun pattern!

In Friday's newsletter we showed you Pinhead and Kiss Dot from Michael Miller Fabrics. (You can sign up to receive our newsletter here if you haven't already.)

We've compiled Fat Eighth Sets for you in five different color groups. A Fat Eighth measures approximately 9" by 21" and with these sets ranging from $9.00 to $15.00 each, they are a great way to add a pop of color to your next project or build your stash.

Pinhead and Kiss Dot would also work well in Cluck Cluck Sew's Morning Glory pattern.

Morning Glory

This adorable summer throw requires 16 assorted 1/8-yard cuts, but if you make the quilt with fat eighths, we would recommend starting with 18.

Kiss Dot 8 Fat Eighth Set - Pink/Purple
Pinhead 8 Fat Eighth Set - Pink/Purple

Mix and match color groups to suit your decor. 

Kiss Dot 7 Fat Eighth Set - Blue 
Pinhead 6 Fat Eighth Set - Blue

Or choose one color group but use both Pinhead and Kiss Dot to add variety.

Kiss Dot 10 Fat Eighth Set - Red/Orange/Yellow
Pinhead 9 Fat Eighth Set - Red/Orange/Yellow

Order a yard of green from Pinhead for the stems.

And 3 1/2 yards Kiss Dot's white-on-white for the background.

Detailed instructions and diagrams make Morning Glory a breeze to assemble! This 68" x 78" throw will brighten your home and doubles as a perfect picnic blanket!

Until next time,
