With the 4th of July just around the corner and our minds filled with fireworks, picnics, family and friends, I thought it was the perfect time to share some of our favorite red white and blue projects and fabrics!
The Moose is filled with patriotic fabrics year round, but recently we’ve added a few amazing things! Perhaps my favorite item is Debbie’s half-scaled version of Laundry Basket Quilt’s “Made in USA” quilt. Debbie has personally curated the gorgeous reds, creams and blues in 42 10 x 10.5 inch squares, which we cut specifically so you can cut your strips on the lengthwise grain of the fabric, exactly the size you need for your pattern strips! The original pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts is included in the starter kit, but Debbie’s instructions to make the half-scaled version is also included in the pattern when purchased at the Moose. Giving you the option to create either size of quilt.
Simply purchase the kit with the curated fabric and pattern, then add sashing! BONUS! There’s actually more than enough fabric in the kit for you to make 2 of the smaller quilts, or start you on the way to making a larger one!
The kit is in the shop today, but come in quickly! Last time we kitted this quilt they flew off the shelves and we expect that the limited number of kits that we have available this time will go quickly as well! Don’t forget, we can also mail your kit to you – simply call us to order!

Isn’t it gorgeous!?
I’m obsessed with the new wovens from Diamond Textiles that arrived… they remind me of the ticking my grandma used to have all over her house, and I can’t wait to create something with them (wouldn’t some Scandi Stars be cute in these?!) Here’s a shot of the new “Americana Vintage” woven line.
If you’re looking for summer projects we also have many other things to choose from! Yardage, pre-cuts, curated bundles, books, patterns and panels – come on in to check them all out 🙂
I think I need one of these panels (in grey and cream) to make some cute little throw pillows!
And speaking of pillows – I adore these Stars and Stripes pillows that our friend Carrie Nelson created for the Moda blog! Click HERE or on either of the photos to take you to the Moda Blog to download either (0r both) of her pillow patterns for FREE! And if you don’t have the fabrics in your stash, stop into the store and pick up our BRAND NEW KIT which has everything you need to piece the front of this gorgeous pillow!
Here is Carrie’s square version…
And Carrie’s rectangle version! Thank you Carrie and Moda for these darling patterns!
Whatever you sew, sew it with love and gratitude for our military personnel and their families will you? They are, after all the reason that we are free to celebrate this amazing country this 4th of July!
And a reminder that we will be closed July 4, 5 and 6 to enjoy our Independence Day holiday weekend. Also, our parking lot will be undergoing some restoration work on those days.
Happy sewing friends – until next week!
