Robert Kaufman 100% Cotton Lawn

Cotton lawns feel so great when you are wearing them. They have a much nicer drape than quilting cotton. We have paired them with one of our favorite pattern, Gallery Tunic from Liesl + Co. We have made this tunic in linen, rayon and cotton. Just a great pattern.

The Gallery Tunic comes in sizes 0 – 20 so there is a large range.
We added 3 small buttons to the front placket to give a more finished look.

Yardage for 44″: Sizes 0-2 purchase 3 yards
Sizes 4 – 16 purchase 3 1/4 yards
Sizes 18 – 20 purchaes 3 1/2 yards

Best fabrics: Cotton lawn, lightweight linen, rayon and linen/rayon blends. We have used all of these fabric with this pattern.

Kaffe Charm Quilt Kit

We love all those great Kaffe Collective prints. It’s often hard to choose which ones to use, so why not use the 5″ squares which are already cut and packaged. We love to combine Kaffe prints with Aboriginal prints so we used one of our favorite Aboriginal prints for the setting triangles and border.

Check out the kit or if you have lots of charm squares, you might just need the pattern.

Our kit finishes approximately 61″ x 73″ so it’s a great throw size.

It uses 4 packs of 5″ squares from Kaffe classic prints. We combined them with an Aboriginal print for the background and borders.

For the final colorful touch, we used one of the Kaffe’s large prints for the binding.

It was so easy and such fun to make!

If you have lots of prints and want to cut your own, we are also offering just the pattern. If you just need a little more variety in the squares, just grab one or two more packs.

If you like our setting triangles and outer border, here is a close look.
