1 Hour Basket Tutorial

***** Please note, this pattern is no longer free or available as a tutorial.  It may only be found in my Etsy shop.

Ok, here it is!  I promised I write a tutorial and I did!  I thought it would be a bit easier if I put the tutorial in PDF format on Craftsy so you can easily download and/or print rather than scroll through my blog post.   I wrote this up pretty quickly so there may be a mistake or two, forgive me!  Also, if you like this style basket and want to step it up, Anna has a beautiful Divided Basket Pattern you should check out! 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do the right thing and tag or link back to me, my blog, or Etsy site if you post pictures/blog/sell the basket!  I'm @kelbysews on IG and Twitter or use #kelbysews #hourbasket

Simple Stained Glass Tutorial

I recently ordered a 4" design roll of Tula Pink's latest line, Elizabeth, from Hawthorne Threads.  I ordered yardage too, but I knew I would want to make something right away so I splurged and got the roll.  I made this super quick and easy pattern I thought I'd share!

Fabric Requirements:

(25) 4"xWOF strips of prints
2 yards background fabric
3.75 yards for backing
1/2 yard for binding

Cutting instructions:

From each print
(3) 4" squares
(2) 4"x11" rectangles

From the background fabric:
10.5"xWOF strip then sub cut into (20) 2"x10.5" rectangles for inner sashing
(8) 2"xWOF strips for inner sashing
(8) 4" xWOF strips for outside border

Mix and match your prints to create these square-in-square blocks.  Each block requires (1) 4" square of print A for the center and (2) 4" squares and (2) 4"x11" rectangles of print B for the outside square.  Once these are assembled, cut each 11" square-in-square block into 4 new squares.  

Mix and match again to create all new 10.5" blocks

It helps to lay it all our to make sure you don't have too many of the same print clustered together.  

Add your sashing strips and voila!  Quilt finished at about 63" square.
