Bree Blog Hop: Day 1

Welcome to our Bree blog hop! We're excited to show you what four different designers have created with the Nancy Halvorsen's gorgeous new fabric collection! If you missed our introduction to Bree, find it here.

Starting out the hop is Alison from Little Bunny Quilts. She's used a 30-degree ruler to create a three-block table runner in corals, aquas and oranges. Enjoy her tutorial and then head over to her blog to enter for a chance to win a selection of Bree fat quarters.

Here's Alison:

Check out this gorgeous fabric line!

For my stop on the hop, I decided to make a table runner that uses my 30 degree ruler from Creative Grids (not an affiliate link!) to make flower blocks!

To make this runner, you will need:

1 yard navy paisley print for backing and binding
1/4 yard grey dot print for background
1/4 yard coral swirl print
1/4 yard coral paisley print
1/4 yard orange swirl print
1/4 yard orange circle dot print
1/4 yard aqua swirl print
1/4 yard aqua/navy check print

For each pair of flower prints (aqua/aqua, orange/orange, and coral/coral) decide which will be your "accent color" (center of the petal block) and which will be your "main color" (sides of the petal block). Trim each 1/4 yard cut to 9 inches wide, or if using fat quarters, cut 9 inch strips.

From each of your "accent color" strips, cut four (4) 30 degree wedges from your 9 inch wide strip. Also cut four (4) 2.5 inch squares from each "accent color". Set these squares aside for now.

From each of your "main color" strips, cut eight (8) 30 degree wedges from your 9 inch wide strip.

Sew a "main color" wedge to each side of your "accent color" wedges. Don't get too worried if your points aren't perfect! Make four (4) petal units in each color, for a total of twelve (12) petal units.

From your background fabric, cut six (6) 4 inch squares. Cut each square in half diagonally once for a total of twelve (12) background triangles. Sew each triangle along the long edge (hypotenuse, for you mathematicians out there!) to the beveled edge of your petal units.

Trim each of your petal units to 8 inches square. Use the stitch and flip technique to attach the 2.5 inch squares to the center of each petal block with a contrasting color.

Sew your four petal units into one block, making three total blocks. Sew your blocks in a row.

Quilt and bind as desired. Enjoy your summery table runner!

Thanks Alison!

  18. I felt like ending it i lost my husband to another woman 2 weeks ago after 27 years of marriage. We had a lovely marriage but he started a relationship with a co worker who chased after him. He is living away near his work, and he refuses to talk to me or to come home . I am devastated and am finding it hard to cope i was emotionally down . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't . I don't know how to stop feeling like this I wish I could and its eating me away and I'm starting to feel ill. I have degraded myself begging him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ogudugu can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and I also came across several testimonies about this particular man so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ogudugu . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details, E-mail: GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM. Thank you all for reading.
