Checkerboard Bonnie & Camille Table Runner - Scrappy Project Planner Sew Along (& giveaway!)

6:30:00 AM

Good morning all!
Ahhhh. Is Spring in the air where you are? I have to say, here in Chicago we had a pretty good run of warmer weather early last week and then BAM! Winter hit again. We are back down around the freezing mark having been teased with mid-70’s and sunshine seven days ago.
Scrappy Planner Quilt Along
Today I’m playing along with the Fat Quarter Shop and their Jolly Jabber blog hop for the Scrappy Project Planner Sew Along and have a cheery, spring-inspired table runner to share with you as my Checkerboard Quilt project from Lori Holt’s Scrappy Project Planner!
Bonnie and Camille Table Runner Vintage Picnic Marmalade Fabric by Sew at Home Mummy
This Checkerboard quilt is a really great way to use up your smaller scraps as it uses a lot of smaller pieces -

This is a really fun planner, with lots of ideas on how to use up your scraps and at the same time, keep your life totally organized. Here are some example photos of the project patterns included and the types of accessories available for you planner (images from Lori Holt’s website):

I chose to use two mini charm packs (perfect for this project!), one each of Bonnie and Camille’s Vintage Picnic and Marmalade fabric lines and paired them with coordinating Peppered cottons in red and navy from Studio E -

I had a lot of fun with this project and I love how the finished runner looks on my dining room table.
As part of my appreciation for being able to participate in the Fat Quarter Shop’s awesome Sew Along, I’m giving away my left over B&C mini charms and my unused copy of the Scrappy Project Planner the Fat Quarter Shop sent me to one of my lucky readers – let’s pay it forward here, right?

  1. I have several mini charm packs in my stash already, as well as scraps to make this project. I "might" just have to visit the Fat Quarter shop, though, to make sure there isn't something else I would want to use in stead. :P

    Thanks for sharing!

  10. What do I love about Fat Quarter Shop? The Sew Sampler Boxes. Seriously, they are the best. I've done monthly clubs before but couldn't justify spending the money on something I wouldn't know I liked, and I usually didn't. But with the sew sampler boxes... every single box has been a winner. Love, love, love them, Look forward to them every month.

  57. Fat Quarter Shop has just about everything that I am looking for. I live in a smaller community and can't always find what I have in mind for projects. I always ask for FQS gift certificates for gifts. It is much easier to shop on line. Love their daily Flash Sales.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I would have used my own scraps - if I could find them all! We moved about a year ago, and my sewing room is still in various boxes, so my scraps are sort of here and there. I guess I JUST MIGHT HAVE TO MAKE A VISIT TO THE FQS TO FILL IN SOME BLANK SPOTS. OH, DARN.

    Or, I could use some of yours, if I'm lucky enough to win!!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  59. The thing that makes me so happy about the FQS is the sheer number of items I can look at, dream about, and BUY from them. And their cute tutorials. And their terrific customer service. And they've ALWAYS had an outstanding website.

    If you give me a few more seconds, I can come with some more reasons I love them!

    Oh, yeah - THEY HAVE REALLY CUTE KIDS!!

  77. I have enough scraps but I would have to buy these cute packs so I could make a Bonnie and Camille, a Fig Tree, a Sweetwater and an April Rosenthal so I can get all the collections I wanted for the past year and be satisfied. Maybe this is the answer, haha.
