Gingham Play Fabric Bundles
What You Get+-
Twelve 1/3 yard strips of high-quality, 100% cotton Michael Miller fabric in super fun colors.
These playful gingham prints are perfect for appliqué quilts - they're the exact fabrics I use in my own quilts! I especially love the directional nature of this gingham. I can change the angle of my applique pieces to get a really clear line between overlapping pieces, even before I outline! You can see that effect in some of the sample blocks in the photos.
Choosing fabrics for a quilt can be tricky - and shopping online if there's no quilt shop near you can be even trickier. This bundle takes all the guesswork out of the process for you! You get a full range of colors all in the same fun print.
I chose these colors especially to coordinate with the Dots fabric bundle - a perfect pair of light and dark for each color. (See the photo showing the two bundles side by side.) It also plays well with the Rainbow Brights Fabric Bundles.
You can use these prints for background blocks, for applique, and also for sashing and binding - so I'm offering them as a bundle of pre-cut fabric strips for maximum versatility.
Each bundle contains twelve 12" strips of fabric, cut selvedge to selvedge. They should all be 40-44 inches wide.
These strips make it super easy to cut the 11" square blocks I recommend for all my quilt patterns, with almost no waste. You can get three blocks out of each strip of fabric (with some left over). For a nap or crib size quilt, you'll only need one bundle. For a twin size quilt you'll need two bundles.
It depends on how skinny or chunky your animals are, but a good, conservative estimate is that you can get at least 5 appliques out of each strip of fabric. One bundle will be more than enough fabric to do all the appliques in a crib or nap size quilt, with plenty of variety and a fair bit left over.
A twin size quilt has 63 blocks. One bundle is enough to make at least 60 - and that's a conservative estimate. As long as you aren't doing a lot of really bulky animals and you're being reasonably careful with your fabric use, you'll probably be able to get a full 63 blocks from one bundle.
One bundle is more than enough to add either wonky or traditional sashing to a nap or crib size quilt, with enough leftover for binding.
One bundle will be just enough to add traditional or wonky sashing to a twin-size quilt, but you'll probably need to get a little extra for binding. The leftovers are a perfect option for that.
Order your bundle now and skip right to the fun part - MAKING your quilt. :-) Orders ship on the same or next business day, so you won't have to wait long.
