I just finished my version of SUBURBS, from Cluck, Cluck Sew. I'm calling it BEACH CABANAS, and I used cheerful sunflower fabrics - SOLANA, from Robin Pickens for Moda.
Then grab a CUTTING CORNERS RULER and you'll be able to wiz through this even faster! I stacked the fabric and trimmed away the steep roof, then attached a replacement triangle cut from the background fabric. Faster and more efficient than sewing corner to corner and throwing away the part you cut off!
I'll even include my tips for cutting the fabric with the flowers all going the right way when you buy the fat quarters for this project!
Isn't this a cool all-over quilt pattern?! Remember, we do LONG-ARM QUILTING, edge-to-edge, right here in the store. Bring in that finished top and let us help you turn it into a quilt!
In addition to many QUILTING PATTERNS, we've got lots of great 108" WIDE BACKS to choose from. Or, we'll even sew together the back for you if you choose a fabric that needs to be pieced, like I did on this one. Isn't this farmland country-side fabric great on the back!
Summer sewing often involves RED, WHITE & BLUE. Check out some of our latest from Lisa Bongean's PRIMITIVE GATHERINGS.
AMERICAN GATHERING came about after Lisa was inspired to raise funds to help veterans' recovery. Using proceeds from this fabric line, she is making a donation to HOGS FOR HEROES, a Wisconsin non-profit that provides Harley motorcycles for veterans in need.
Check out our selection of AMERICAN GATHERING, including a FAT QUARTER BUNDLE here online, and then check out Lisa's SEW ALONG. She's offering the PATTERN FOR FREE. Click here for details.

We are meeting in the store, in person, but you must reserve a limited seat to attend. There is still room. Masks are required.
