Midweek Makers #431

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


As you know, the RSC color for April is yellow. I've made one block that I shared last week and thought about another. After opening the yellow drawer looking for scraps, I quickly closed it. Can you tell I'm not feeling the yellow?

So instead, I hunted through my Valentine stash, finding enough to make one of the tall storage boxes. Quite happy with this one!


At last week's party, did you see the terrific projects shared? Take a look at this bird from Naehbegeisterte,


this fun dinosaur quilt from Scrapbox Quilts,


and these adorable umbrella placemats from Bell Creek Quilts.


Next week, I won't have any quilting to share but some other exciting news - see you then!

Midweek Makers #430

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


The new RSC2024 color is out for April - woohoo for cheery yellow! I've chosen to pull the buttery yellows from my slim scrap bag, building around the honey bees for more I Spy hunting fun.


I'll have to dig through the yellow yardage drawer for more scraps if there's to be  another yellow block in my future. Right now, it's a challenge to get on my knees, so I might have to let that idea go.

On a happier note, I'm continuing the theme of lots of color as seen in this week's Midweek Makers badge. Check out these colorful shares:

from Not Afraid of Color, these eye-catching blocks,


from DonnaleeQ, some colorful scrap blocks,


and from Quilting and Learning, these scrappy placemats.


Great use of the scraps everyone!!!

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


I did squeeze in one more 'purple' block for RSC before the month was over. As promised, this one features prints, which I find hard to use in my scrap blocks. But this one is especially cute because of the kitty. Looks like this quilt idea might feature a bit of I Spy too! 




From last week, a few awesome top finishes. From Making a Lather, this fun churn dash quilt,


from Happy Cottage Quilter, a fun house quilt top,


but a finished quilt from Quilting Gale, her SAHRR.

Beach Hut April Quilt Block Mania

This month's Quilt Block Mania theme is 'beach'. My block, Beach Hut, is all about retreating to the beach!



If you've been a follower over the last two years, you may recognize this Beach Hut from my quilt, Beach Boardwalk. 


I have fond memories of designing and making that quilt, memories which have carried over to this month's block. 

Though not originally a 12" square block, adding a bit of background to the sides makes the perfect size for a 12" Quilt Block Mania block, which I'm sharing with you.

Let's take a look at the other beach themed blocks for this month:



All of these blocks are free for the month of April - get them while you can! Be sure to thank the designers for their generosity.

Eyes on your Fries


For my Beach Hut block, a few fat quarters are needed and yes, make it any color you'd like. Here's my Beach Hut block that went into Beach Boardwalk, of course minus the side pieces that would make it a 12" block.



The Beach Hut block may look a bit challenging to the beginner quilter, but with the pattern's detailed instructions, any quilter should be able to easily piece this. Get it now - it's free until May 6, 2024. Just click on the download button below for the PDF pattern file.

In downloading the pattern, you agree not to share the file with others, but direct them to the QuiltFabrication.com/Beach Hut post - thank you!
