Every other Wednesday, Danielle from Whimsical Fabrics puts a bundle of fabrics on sale in her group for a special price. I have been purchasing mine ahead of time. We have had a blast picking out patterns and brainstorming what can be done with these bundles. This weeks is Summer Celebration Patriotic by Riley Blake. It just screams summer!
I decided that I would make a rag quilt with this bundle. It will be perfect for music in the park this summer, taking to the beach, and even to the theme/water parks to wrap up in at the end of the day!
I used the Strip rag quilt by A Vision to Remember as my base. It is a free pattern on her blog. I only used 4 fabrics rather than 7, and I added 2 extra strips to the length to get 4 strips of each fabric. I put the inner layer of flannel in this one for added warmth and alternated red and blue flannel for the back.
As I was sewing this up (a total of 4 hours from cutting to snipping), my 2 year old got very excited and ask if I was making him a new blanket, so I know this will get plenty of use this summer!
If you haven’t shopped the Wacky Wednesday deal before, here is how it works: At 12 noon CST (1 pm EST, 10 AM PST), Danielle will post the fabric for today’s deal.
You will receive each of these 4 fabrics in your bundle.
If you would like multiple bundles the fabric is still on the bolt and will be cut in continuous yardage.
• FULL YARD Bundle (4 total yards)
• HALF YARD Bundle (2 total yards)
Be sure to be in the Whimsical Fabric & me Facebook group so you don’t miss out! These deals are usually good for 24 hours, but have been selling out quick lately!
