-3" x WOF (width of fabric) of white or cream fabric
-1/8 yard x WOF of navy or blue fabric
-additional navy or blue fabric for any borders or sashing you would ...

Halloween Project: Bat Table Runner from Brown Bird Designs Quilts


My obsession with bats lingers. Last year, I made several projects with bats formed by cutting strips of fabric on opposite angles. About six months ago, I spent a lot of time designing different quilts with bats in them. However, with my Quilt-A-Long being pushed back, I didn’t think I would have enough time to create a post so I put it on the back burner. Oh, but I needed this quick project . . . this spark of creativity! A cleansing of the pallet. You see, I have been up to my eyeballs in Rug Quilt Blocks. Ironically, I still need ...

No sew - Coaster Tutorial! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello fabric lovers!

I'm super excited because today I will teach you how to make a cool coaster you can make in less than 20 minutes! What inspired me to make this no-sew project was my huge bottle of water! I always bring a 1L bottle to the office. I always like to put ice in it because there's nothing better than cold water (at least for me!) but it would always become messy because after a while I would have water all over my desk. This simple and cool project solved my problem in less than 20 ...
