Happy Flag Day, Hi I am Lisa and would like to thank  the Fat Quarter Shop  letting me sew along today.  I enjoy blogging with the Fat Quarter Shop  and sewing in their quilt alongs and sew alongs! I love the free pattern and think these would  also look great if you just wanted to  make placemats for the 4th of July! It is great for a beginner or experienced sewer!

Alphabitties  are great for keeping track  of all your pattern pieces!


It is a great pattern to chain piece quickly together!



The Clover Forked Pins make these seams line up perfect! They are my new favorite notion!

PDF pattern bought - what next

Image
Hi Everyone,
I am just dropping in to discuss .pdf patterns! I buy them all the time from clothes, bags, to quilts! Big ones, small ones to little itty bitty ones! I love them all and have them all backed up to the cloud! If you don’t know what a cloud is your hard drive on your computer or tablet!
1.  Depending on where you buy it from you will get the opportunity to download it as soon as you pay! Others sites might send you as email to download!  Don’t wait til later to download it.  Do it as soon as you can! Not going to use it right away, that’s ok, but download it to your storage! I say this because I use all Apple products and I download everything to iBooks!
2. Print it off for some light reading! You might find that cute bag is not as easy as you thought or you need to order interfacing, snaps, buckles, or more fabric! But read it!
3. Look at and cut out the pattern pieces and make sure they are all there! What do I mean? Well, you might find the pattern designer gave you a templ…
