I got the idea for this quilt from a pillow I made for Moda Bake Shop last year.?You can see it herecustomized gifts for her, it would be fun to make one to match the quilt using your scraps.

Layer Cake or 10″; stacker of fabric.? (you can use 1 layer cake for both quilts) I used Tweet Tweet by Keiki1-yard white fabric per quilt for the center1-yard fabric per quilt for backing1/2 yard fabric per quilt for bindingBattingHeat N Bond LiteButtons, colored thread to embellish appliqueSmiley Monster Font?(can be downloaded free)

Sew one of the 3 block strips to the 29 1/2″; side of the white fabric. Repeat by sewing the other 3 block strip to the other side.

Press.

Sew the 4 block strips to the other 2 sides of the white block. Press. Trim off excess if necessary.

Quilt as desired. I quilted mine with a walking foot in straight lines approximately 2″; apart.

Using a word processing program and the font Smiley Monster, print your name approx 4″; tall. You may need to make it slightly smaller if you are printing a large name.

Trace the letters backward onto the slick side of a piece of Heat n Bond Lite. Cut out roughly and iron onto the wrong side of the fabric. Cut out. You can?see photos of my applique method here.

Apply to lower right-hand corner of the quilted top approx. 2″; from the bottom border.

This red, white and blue tote bag was made out of 5 cotton shirts that I purchased from my local thrift shop for 25 cents each.
