Flower Power

by Julie Hirt

I’m so torn.. I don’t know what to make.  I have 2 Westminster jelly rolls in Jennifer Paganelli’s Flower Power. Love, love, love the fabric and want to make something for my mom.  I think I love it so much that I just want to use 1 of the rolls and keep the other for myself! =D   I’ve narrowed it down to 4 options, if you can call that narrowing it down.

Here are the patterns I’m trying to pick from:

Decisions, decisions.  I don’t think I can go wrong with any of these.

Spoonflower (adult size) Lobster Bib

by Julie Hirt

This is my own design!   I drew it up in Illustrator, uploaded to and received it in less than 2 weeks.  Very happy with fabric and the entire process.

Fairly simple to make- I backed it with an orange and white pattern fat quarter fabric, put a piece of scrap quilting batting in between.

To sew place your batting down, lobster fabric on top (right side up), then backing fabric face down.  Sew around leaving about 6 inches to turn it back to the right side.   Then sew up the hole.

Quarter inch edging around the sides – not the top where the tie goes.

Tie: Cut and sew together to form one long piece.  Fold in half and iron > open > folded the edges to the iron line > then fold in half again and iron. The result is 1/4″ inch strips.  Then sew along down the middle and attaching to the front of the bib. I did take photos along the way and will get those uploaded shortly.
