Modern Fabric Art Bowls

In their words: Delve into the world of quilts, fabrics, and bowl making! Take quilt blocks and bring them into the three dimensional space as tasteful, modern bowls. Kirsten Fisher shares her unique artistic vision and instructions on how you can take any piece of fabric and reinvent it using the design of your choice. Perfect to forever display a favorite fabric or quilt block, or provide a thoughtful gift to loved ones.

What a great way to use orphan blocks! Or, use them as a fundraiser. A youth group in our area made the bowls and sold them to members of the congregation. The purchasers used them to hold spare change. All proceeds, and the spare change, were then donated to the food pantry. What a great way to make a difference in your community.

Americana Casserole Hot Pad

This stars-and-stripes motif is created using the Creative Grids® Strippy Stars tool (CGRDH2) by Deb Heatherly. This pattern uses the Casserole Dish Hot Pad Pre-Cut Batting and Insulating material (TGQ104), which has two layers of batting and polyester and metalized layer to help keep your hot dish hot. It perfectly fits a standard 9 by 13 inch casserole dish. With just three fabrics, this pattern would be simple to kit with a red, white, and blue fabric from your shop’s color wall. But, why not kit it in Fall and Winter holiday colors as well? After all, stars are always in season and these would make great hostess gifts. A great class option.

This design can be made with charm squares for a scrappy look. Choose strips or fat eighths for a controlled look as shown on the back cover. Or make two placemats instead of a table runner.

This would be a great beginner class – and is so easy to kit! A charm pack and a yard of fabric will make two! These patterns are due to arrive the middle of April so order them now!
