Projects to Try
Quilting fabric is versatile, and you can use it for a variety of projects. If you’re short on crafting ideas, consider a few of the suggestions below. Any of our Ella Blue materials would work perfectly for the following projects:
Quilted Wine Totes
Planning to attend picnics or parties this spring? To keep your bottles of wine safe during transport, try your hand at these customized tote bags. While they’re great for carrying wine, you can stash whatever you’d like in these quilted bottle bags. Whether you’re bringing your favorite bottle of wine to a party or sending your little ones to school with a cold water bottle, these totes will be a useful addition to your household.
If you’d like to protect your table from unsightly stains, be sure to put down placemats before every meal. Pre-made plastic placemats are often flimsy and difficult to clean, and you may not be able to find them in your favorite color or pattern. If you’d like to create durable and unique ones, try making these quilted placemats with Ella Blue fabric. When you’re finished, you’ll enjoy a soft mat that won’t scratch your table. Plus, quilted placemats are easily washable—just throw them in the washing machine on the gentle cycle.
Handmade quilts are a special addition to any home. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a loved one or you’d like to add some personality to your living room or bedroom, a colorful quilt is an excellent choice. Regardless of your quilting expertise, you’ll enjoy making this simple triangle quilt. It’s packed with signature styles from Ella Blue, and the final result is both aesthetically pleasing and super-soft to the touch.
