Run 'n Stitch WIP


I wanted to do something with this cute little fat quarter bundle.  It is from the Pixie Noel collection by Riley Blake.  I was reading my favorite blogs and found the perfect pattern to use with this little bundle.  You can find the pattern HERE.

 I pulled out my Accuquilt GO, which I haven't used for a very long time.  Because I haven't used it, I really didn't get the best results.  I put too much fabric in at first and the cuts were off, so I did have to do a lot of compensating when I sewed the blocks together.  Luckily the pieces were squares so they still went together pretty well even though they were not all accurate.



I didn't use the poinsettias from the bundle in the quilt so I used it for the border.  This is the border audition.  I think I like the red inner boarder so I will go with that.  This will be the perfect Christmas quilt for a little one.  It is so simple because the blocks are big.


For this cute little quilt I used:
-fat quarters for the two print fabrics in the quilt, and the blue and red in the quilt.  
-I needed a fat quarter and two extra 3.5 inch squares of the stripe. I am going to bind the quilt with the stripe and took the two 3.5" squares from that yardage.  It will take a total of 1/3 yards of the stripe fabric.
-one quarter yard of the inner border fabric.  Cut 4 strips, 1.5" X WOF.
-One half yard for the outer border.  Cut (4) 4 inch by WOF pieces.

  4. This quilt is the perfect use for those sweet fabrics and I'm sure some child will love it. I enjoy making charity quilts for Project Linus, for sick kids. It's such a worthy cause.
