Everything Blue Blog Hop, a Tutorial and a Giveaway!

I’m so excited to be a part of Clothworks Everything Blue Blog Hop!


We sell a few of their lines at the shop I work at, Stash, and I have fallen in love with their fabrics. Then when I found out they were a local Seattle company, I was even more in love!


Then!!! I had the opportunity to participate in their Everything Blue Blog Hop to help spread the word about their new line and I was super excited! My new friend at Clothworks, Susie, who set this whole thing up even hand delivers the fabric to my house! Ends up we’re neighbors! How cool is that???


So here’s the deal! I was given about a 1/2 yard of the three fabrics above and was asked to make 1 block (or two). I had to use some of each of the fabrics and then you were allowed to add a little of either blue, red, white or cream. I knew I wanted to add a little red! So I did! A little bit of red from the Clothworks Everyday Organics solid line!


My first block was a little abstract something!



I added a little red stitching around the blocks of color.


And my second block was what I call a ‘Rose Block’, but I’m not sure that’s really what it’s called! I’ve also seen it called a Flip and Stitch block. This is the one I knew I wanted to do as soon as I saw the fabric. I’ve loved the block for a while, but when I saw the fabrics had a floral print to some of them, I knew I had to try this one!


I love the red for the center. Or should I say the ‘off center.’

And for the tutorial… I looked for a tutorial for this block but couldn’t really find one (maybe since I don’t know it’s true name… I should find that out!), so I thought I’d show you how I made mine. Of course, I didn’t make the tutorial when I made the block… So just pretend that the fabrics in the tutorial are the same as the fabrics above! Most of them are Clothworks though…


It’s super easy and might not even need a tutorial, but hey! So start by gathering your fabrics and then cutting strips. I don’t use a straight line, because I don’t want any of my pieces to be the same size!


Then, cut the center piece and start adding the second fabric around. I sew a piece, trim, sew a side, trim, sew a side, trim… Get the pattern here?


Then I go to my second fabric and repeat. The second color is where I start trimming. I lay my ruler over the block and just start moving it around until I get the right corner angle that looks good to me.


And then guess what…. More repeating! Add the third color, then trim. Next color, then trim. Repeat for as many colors as you’d like to use… And trim.

And you’re done! Yea!

And the most exciting part… The Giveaway! Yea!


Clothworks has graciously offered one reader 12 fat quarters of the new Everything Blue line with a little red and coral thrown in for good measure!
