Good Morning, friends! Thank you for all the love on our new Half Square America pattern, we’re excited for you to sew along with us! We wanted to mention that your blocks do not have to be red, white and blue themed to join in the sew along. You can see another version that Nikki created here. Be creative! Perhaps even a rainbow flag for pride month?
If you are working on some RW&B flag blocks, we wanted to share some resources for all our favorite red, white, and blue fabrics.
First, Pink Door Fabrics has created some quilt kits, look how cute! They include the fabrics needed to make the Fireworks or Chevron layouts, or any other layout of your choice with 6×6 blocks plus a border. There is a limited quantity and you can find them here.
They have such an amazing variety of fun kits (and yardage!) aside from this one, so poke around a bit while you are there! Plus, Chelsea is so sweet!
If you’re wanting a smaller bundle or just some yardage, we have some resources for that, too. Stash Fabrics has the cutest cotton + steel patriotic remix bundle (shown above), and they also have some excellent Kona solid bundles. These would be perfect for a mini, pillow or runner project.
We picked up some of that amazing Mammoth Flannel plaid shown above to back our quilt – isn’t it perfect!
If you would like to make your own mic of fabrics, Stash offers 1/4 yard cuts (and up) which I LOVE, and are perfect for cutting strips for this project. Below is a shot of our Design Wall from their website showing some of the fabrics we used, plus oodles more. You can click here or on the image below to link to our design wall. From there you can click on any of the images for a direct link to that fabric. Isn’t that a fun feature?
We hope this post has been helpful and we cannot wait to see all your blocks! Stay tuned for info about all the fun prizes we’ll have for the sew a long and remember to tag your photos with #halfsquareamerica and #halfsquareamericaSAL.
Bye for now!
