QAYG – Pre Printed Batting

 Happy Wednesday!

While in Texas I became a YouTube junkie! I learned a lot and was inspired by many. One of my favorite channels was Shabby Fabrics.

Shabby Fabrics offered several video tutorials using many of the June Tailor QAYG designs that are printed onto batting that allows you to complete a project in one step.

The finished projects Jen Bosworth demonstrated were absolutely beautiful and the process seemed simple and straightforward:

  • Cut your fabrics
  • Sew by number
  • Trim
  • bind

Below are the placemats I made for my shop.

My thoughts about the June Tailor QAYG designs:

  • Easy technique and truly quick
  • Being accurate (sewing on the line and cutting the fabric) was important
  • Suggested cut lengths are key – there is no wiggle room
  • Normally I prefer using Pellon Fusible Thermolam
  • or Pellon Fusible Foam in my placemats but I can definitely live with the results using the June Tailor product.

All in all a good product, I also purchased the Venice Placemats, Christmas Tree Skirt,  Christmas Stocking and the wine tote bag pre printed designs. I’ll show you once I get those finished!

Each package comes with 6 pre printed placemat designs – I did a sample placemat from each package, washed the placemats after sewing and they washed up nicely, not much shrinkage and they ironed up well.

Another UFO Finish

My friend shopped my UFO pile and picked something to gift to her niece. I used Cuddle fabric on the back.

Pattern was Bordered Periwinkle from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Fabric Alison Glass Sun Print 2016.

Yay another UFO finish!

Until next time Happy Sewing!
