Fabric Giveaway for Quilting on a Summer Afternoon

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” ~Henry James

I'd say Henry had it almost right. "Summer afternoon quilting" would be my choice of the most beautiful words.

So to celebrate summer and afternoons (or mornings) spent quilting, here's a free project, plus a Moda fabric give-away for two lucky commenters. One fabric pack contains "Summer House" by Lily Ashbury and "Meadow Friends" by Deb Strain. The other has "Meadow Friends" and "Twirl" by "Me and My Sister Designs."

But first, the free project. This e-reader cover by Lindsey Murray McClelland is from 101 Projects and Quilts. Lindsey made this cover to fit her 8" x 5 1/4" Kindle, just adjust the measurements to fit your e-reader.

Patchwork Kindle Cover

Materials

  • 9 1/2" x 14 1/2" piece of fabric for exterior
  • 9 1/2" x 14 1/2" piece of fabric for interior
  • (2) 9 1/2" x 14 1/2" pieces of batting
  • Fusible web
  • Button
  • Elastic hair band

Directions

1. Fuse a piece of batting to the wrong side of both the interior fabric and the main fabric, following the manufacturer's instructions for the fusible web.

Note: If you would like to quilt your cover this is the time to do so.

2. Layer the panels right sides together and sew around the edge of the fabric sandwich, leaving an opening for turning.

3. Trim the corners close to the seam to reduce bulk. Turn the piece right-side out.

4. Lay the mini quilt right-side down, and using your Kindle as a guide, fold the bottom part of the quilt up to create a pocket deep enough to secure your Kindle in place when it is on its long side.

5. Using a 1/4" seam allowance, topstitch along both sides of the pocket.

6. Mark the center of the cover flap and use a seam ripper to make a small 1/2" opening in the seam. Take the elastic hair band and insert it so it extends 1/2" out.

7. Topstitch across the middle of the band several times to anchor it in place.

8. Close the flap and mark where the loop ends. Sew a button at this spot.

What's your favorite summer quilting project? Leave your comment below for a chance to win one of the two fabric packs. I'll pick a winner next Tuesday, July 23, 2013.

  1. Hand bags are my favorite summer time project. This summer I taught my 6 year old daughter to sew with a sewing machine so hand bags have been left to the wayside. She is in the middle of piecing her very first quilt top and wants to go buy fabric everyday and build stash. I’m hesitant on that part. If we win, she’ll be on her way to the next quilt. She is so hooked she runs down to the workroom right after she wakes.

  2. I’ve had a foundation paper piecing pattern of a beautiful dragonfly I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. This fabric would make the perfect frame.

  3. the dragonflys remind me of my joyful childhood when we would chase them and butterflies all day long. Often mom would put us down on her quilt for our afternoon nap in the shade trees.

  4. My favorite summer project is something quick and easy! Maybe a mug rug or a pillow cover or something like that. Very cute fabric – thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  5. I am working on a quilt of the flora and fauna along our lakeside. This fabric looks like it would fit in great with what I have already assembled. It reminds me of a sunny day ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m so in love with fabric and how it makes me feel content and joy in the craziness of city life living right now. Comfort and love for the smell and touch and sight of these fabrics. Thank you.

  7. My favorite summer time quilting project is making soft books for little ones. The best pages have the most colorful characters. These fabrics would work beautifully!

  8. In the summer I like to make small projects like baby quilts, wallhangings, or journal covers. Too hot to work on a large quilt!

    Thanks for the nice give-away.

  9. Oh, this looks so easy! I tried to make a Kindle cover once but it ended up being too big for my Kindle. At the time, I didn’t realize there were several different sizes of Kindles, and the pattern I had picked was for one of the older larger Kindles.

    My favorite summer project is to catch up on the BOMs that I have let “slip” during the spring. Since it is so hot out it is nice to stay in and cut and sew the blocks. So far, I am caught up on one BOM and have no clue how far I am behind on the other!

  10. I’ve finished a quilt as a wedding gift… using the disappearing 9 patch.
    I also bought a kit at a quilt shop while on vacation,
    and I can’t wait to get it started.
    Love the fabrics in the give away…
    I can always use more fabric…
    It’s beautiful fabric and I can see using it in so many projects.

  11. My favorite summer time project that is a tough one because I love to quilt anything and everything. O.k. here are just a few quilted pillow covers, Ipad covers, purses and lap quilts for the cool summer nights.
    I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE dragonflies and the color green. So this fabric pack is the perfect gift for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. The fabric giveaway is all about summer! Love it! And I’m saving these instructions — I have a Kindle cover but it’s getting worn out. I’ll need to make a replacement very soon!!!

  13. These fabrics are so lovely. I love to make a coverlet for my bed each summer and most are done with very summery feminine fabrics and I have also done a black and white that looks lovely. I usually start it in March and it is ready since i do not put batting in it by May…and I enjoy it all summer…thanks for the chance at this beautiful fabrics.

  14. Love the Kindle cover! I’ll be having a go at that one sometime.
    This Summer I’ve got a gazillion projects I’d like to tackle but between two kids and work, I think I’ll be getting out as much as possible! I do have some EPP to take with me though.

    I adore Meadow Friends. I searched high and low for it to make my boy’s first quilt and it was well worth the effort. My niece needs one next!

  15. Dragonflies and flowers – summer time and the living is easy ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t have only one favorite project but two – baby quilts for two expecting august babies of my friends..

  16. My favorit summer Project right now is a “love” quilt. I’m making for a couple getting married next month. It’s full of hearts and love!

    I’d love some of the fabric to make my next Project!

  17. My favorite summer projects include quilts to be given as Christmas gifts, tote bags, and small projects to be used for holiday bazaars or benefits. Love the give-away fabrics!

  18. Beautiful fabrics! Definitely a gift: wedding present for my nephew, or pillowcases for Million Pillowcase Challenge, or cheery quilt for Project Linus, or…

  19. Love the fabric and the Kindle cover pattern. Maybe if I am blessed enough to win, I can make this cover for a family member with a Kindle or my hubby!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. The Meadow Friends fabric instantly caught my attention. I would love to make some quilted placemats or some other project for my neighbor who just recently has set up a bee hive. She also is a way-station for monarchs and raises and releases them and tags them for their migration. She would love this fabric!

  21. Beautiful fabric. I like dragonflies, nature, etc. I need to make a cover for my Kindle. Thanks for the pattern!

  22. I am slowly trying to build up a fabric stash instead of having to buy all the fabric each time I make a quilt. This collection would be a welcomed contribution ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Those are some fine fabrics. I would love to make a summery something, probably a small table topper or picnic cloth to dress up those impromptu summertime dine outside moments.

  24. My favorite summer quilting project has been a quilt for our state fair. It’s modern and that’s a new style for me. I’m also working on table runners for my new dinning table and placemats for my patio table.

  25. What a lovely giveaway! My favorite summer project? I tend to take things easy in the summer, so something small that doesn’t require too much effort or energy. I just do little things to help move the projects along or start one with cool colors that help me think of winter.

  26. Thanks so much for the free pattern for my reader; it would look so pretty made up in some of that groovy fabric! I just love the design and wild colors! So technicolor…

  27. I spend every summer working on and adding to a needle-turn applique floral quilt. More is always better and some day I may even finish it! Regardless, the blocks are just so easy to carry in my beach tote or when travelling and each square is filled with memories of a particular summer. Love the dragonflies. Hmmmm.

  28. Love the colors of summer and all it brings! Beautiful flowers, dragonflies, and all the seasonal goodies. These fabrics would let me make many summer projects.

  29. This year turquoise and lime green are my favorite colors, and I used them to make place mats for my kitchen. Would love to add these for a wall hanging.

  30. Dragonflies are my “thing”, I can spend hours sitting by a pond watching them dart in and out of the reeds. Summertime is my time to work on small art quilts, I usually take a class at the “Quilter’s Affair” in Sisters, Oregon and work on the project the rest of the summer.

  31. I don’t have an eReader, a Kindle or such … but I could always think of plenty of ways to use these beautiful fabrics! A more traditional old-fashioned book cover, perhaps?

  32. Ohh what lovely fabric – I have a nude Kindle that would be happy to be clothed with this. I unfortunately never win anything but will make one for Kindle to be warm in the winter with the fabric I have here in England. Happy sewing to the winner

  33. Love Love Love this fabric! Reminds me of when I was a child and we spent our summer days and evenings catching bugs and fireflies. Remember catching fireflies and putting them in a mason jar after you punched holes in the lids? I do. . . Miss those days and wish more children experienced these daily pleasures.

  34. Oh how I love the Meadow Friends fabric line. My fav summer project at the moment is finishing some long overdue projects. I just quilted 3 quilts. Now onto the binding. Next I need to make a baby boy quilt for a dear friend’s newborn. Meadow Friends would be perfect for that project.

  35. My summer sewing usually involves clothing for my kids, bags or other small projects. And also collecting ideas for sewing & quilting once they go back to school. Thanks for a chance to win this fabulous fabric! ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Love love these fabrics!! I would love to win this. I am a dragonfly lover!! The others are so adorable as well. Thanks for this opportunity!!

    Rachel

  37. Well it’s winter here so quilts and throws and sitting in front of the fire are the go. Those summery fabrics would be a great brightener for the cold wet winter days.

  38. My go to summer project has been bags. Overnight bags to makeup bags to tshirt grocery bags to keychain wallets to cross body hand bags. My family and I just seem to need lots of bags!

  39. A fun summer project for me has been a wall hanging I’ve been working on for my kitchen. I made templates of a coffee pot I drew as the main motif and am adding embellishments. I’m using bright yellows and reds with black to brighten up a bland wall. When it gets too hot,I stop for swim,but still love my coffee!

  40. I love quilting in the summer with the sun light being longer. I have some more blocks to make for our guild’s Comfort Quilts for those who are sick. This material would work perfect for a gal’s quilt!

  41. I’ve just been turned on to a “snappy bag” that closes with two pieces of retractable measuring tape thru the top casings. These fabrics would be great to use; I want to make one for each of the women in my family as well as the kidz. Would love to win your give-away.

  42. If I am staying on track, my favorite summertime quilting project is a quilt to be gifted at Christmas. But this year I’m also making quick, fun picnic quilts, perfect for summertime in lots of ways.

  43. I dont have favourite project for summer. Depend on my mood and on the fabric, that might inspire me to make something. Presently I am making a quilt. I love the fabric you are offering in your giveaway. Thank you. Would be great for bags or small projects.

  44. In the summer I like to do more intricate projects. My sewing room has lots of windows with great natural light. I like to take advantage of the long summer days to work on projects that might strain my eyes on the shorter, darker winter days.

  45. My summer projects usually include getting a jump start on Christmas projects. This week I’ve been figuring out what blocks to use in a sampler quilt. Thatnks for the give-away. All the fabrics would be fun to work with.

  46. Summer projects? It’s so hot and humid that I usually stick to smaller/simpler projects – tote bags, a new mug rug, maybe a baby blanket and quilt. Thank you for this great giveaway!

  47. I love to make summer mug rugs and start gifts for the holidays. Thank you for the Kindle cover tutorial! What great fabrics for the giveaway.
    thanks, Christina in Cleveland

  48. It would be hard to choose between the two fabric choices, both are so fresh and summery.
    An E reader case would make someone an awesome gift.
    Great giveaway

  49. What a great question and love the fabrics.
    I like to create mug rugs, get started on holiday gifts and practice my quilting skills during the summer.
    Thanks for the chance to win,
    Christina in Cleveland

  50. Came across some wonderful dragonfly material nine years ago, made a baby quilt for my grandson, have not seen any other dragonfly material since.
    It was a wonderful surprise to see this collection.
    would love to win them, if I do will make doll quilts for two little girls who I know would just be over the moon, they simply adore dragonflies.

  51. The dragonflies are darling! My favorite bugs ๐Ÿ™‚ to me, they represent summer. I just bought ponytail bands with lucite dragonflies on them – would look great as the button on the reader folder above!!

  52. As a new quilter I’m delighted to get this pattern idea. I think small, quick projects fit my summer mode. LOVE the coffee cups…and using a ponytail band as a closure is genius…THANKS!

  53. Wow, they are so pretty! If I happen to be picked by that number thingy, I would definitely make a cover for my tablet. But my favorite summer~time project is incorporating fabric into my mixed~media project. And I’m learning how to do redwork. Thanks for a chance at your generous give~away!

  54. Such cheerful fabric from my favorite company! My favorite summer project is finding time to continue work on a quilt since I love to bike and our garden has been very productive. I am making a baby quilt right now with fabric from Moda! kb 4847 @sbcglobal.net

  55. Love the fabric and I hope to win – most of my stash is c.1990’s and in desperate need of updating. And thanks for the pattern – I need a cover for my iPad mini and it should be easy to resize the pattern to fit it. Happy quilting and sewing, everyone!

  56. My summer project: working with a group at my church sewing tote bags for walkers to be given to our homebound members and to nursing home residents. And we carry extras in our cars in case we meet people along the way who need one. Just two 14″ panels the width of the fabric sewn together, turned, the ends folded up to make pockets, and velcro strips to fasten them over the walker bar.

    The most beautiful word I know is MODA! Love the colors of the giveaway fabrics.

  57. I would love to win the fabric so as to share with my buddies here in Silverton Colorado. We are 50 miles from any fabric store and this would make a great challenge for our group. Also would like to invite anyone in the area to our quilt show and sale in September 7 & 8

  58. This summer it is baby stuff! Wall hanging, diaper bag and bibs! So much fun to make original one of a kind creations for those so special babies!

    Love the fabric selections! Always need new fabric!

    thanks for the great articles and inspiration.

  59. Great tutorial I am going to make one for my friend’s Kindle and then adjust it to make a cover for my ipad! Thank you. My favorite summer project is something I can start in the summer months in preparation for Christmas giving. Love having a head start on holiday gifts. Hope i win fabric!

  60. Love the tutorial – sounds almost to easy to be true. I really need to make a cover for my e-reader!
    I have been doing some smaller paper piecing blocks and find these perfect for summer: no big quilt parts to drag around – and you still get the satisfaction of creating something. Guess I have to make a PP block and use in your tutorial… Thanks for a chance!

  61. Thank you for the cool free project and the chance to win some awesome new fabric. Summer feels a long way off down here at the present time, need the inspiration!

  62. Thank you for the cool free project and the chance to win some awesome new fabric. Summer feels a long way off down here at the present time, need the inspiration!

  63. I’m presently into baby quilts…. every one seems to be pregnant this season ! I like smaller projects in the summer. I would love to win either of these fabric collections as they look so springy and perky to me.

  64. My favorite summertime project is renewing my kitchen linens- new dishtowels with toppers, potholders, etc. When its hot out, I think small and keep the bigger projects for the winter months!

  65. Love the bright cheery fabrics. This summer’s favorite quilting project is dreaming about quilting. Have been living in our shop as our house is being built and the space is not there for a sewing project. Would love my first quilt to be a bright sunny one using these fabrics!

  66. Summer is too hot in the South to work on full size quilts so I prefer table runners, pillowcases, bags, and small wall quilts. Thanks for the free Kindle pattern and the fabrics are ….. well ….. summery!!!

  67. My daughter & granddaughter would like something from the Summer House collection, and I’d love something from the Meadow Friends collection. They are both wonderful summer collections.

  68. I sew all the time, so I really don’t have a favorite. I’ve been quilting baby quilts & this week our quilting group delivered 60 quilts to the Med. As a diversion I have started applique art for my kitchen windows & would like to do some outside art for the garden. If you give me fabric I will find something to do with it!

  69. There is nothing more inspiring than a beautiful summer morning coupled with a handful of new prints to play with. I love to make great big colorful pillow shams to scatter on the floor of my school library. Perhaps there is an “I Spy a Dragonfly” sham coming this fall?

  70. I like to start working on Christmas gifts for my quilting bees and my co-workers. Each year I pick out something that is not to difficult and that I can make about 30. I like to try to make something that is useful and decorative. In the past I have made shopping bags, coffee mug wraps, spa bags and this year I am making tea towels. I like to start these projects in the summer because they are small and I don’t have to deal with a heavier (hotter) quilt. Also, starting in the summer gives me a jumpstart on the season so that I am not in panic mode in December.

  71. Cute kindle cover! Love the fabrics she picked too. My favorite project this summer is a little paper pieced hexagon project and some of the hexagons are embroidered. So fun to sit and stitch by hand!

  72. Staying cool in my craft room with the light streaming in and sewing up something beautiful with these fabrics – now THAT’s a divine thought! Would really enjoy these fabrics. Thanks for a chance to own them!

  73. Summer’s the time for smaller, quicker projects for me…cheerful colored placemats and mug rugs, fun tote bags, that kind of thing. Love the fabric here, and thanks for the free project!

  74. The giveaway fabrics would be a bright delight to work with. Summer days, I’m out in the garden with the dragonflies. Evenings are reserved for organizing and replenishing my stash and designing fall and winter projects using Electric Quilt computer program. It gives me something to look forward to.

  75. Hi! That fabric is so cute! And I really do have a naked Kindle that needs a cover! Those prints look like fun and I’m sure my Kindle would appreciate recovering her modesty!

  76. Actually, I just completed my annual summer project: the Hoffman Challenge. It arrived in Colorado yesterday. As to what is next, I think time spent cleaning up my studio is in order. It is complete chaos. Next, perhaps a new purse or pull out those two summertime quilts I started for myself and haven’t finished in their oh-so-cool summer colors. Or a red, white and blue project. Or…. Who knows?

  77. Summer seems to be my time to catchup on all those UFO’s and I find it satisfying to finally get them done! Then, after that, it’s time for Christmas Quilting so I start planning what I want to get done this year. Thanks for the opportunity to win those beautiful fabrics.

  78. My summertime projects usually include small things like pot holders. I also start thinking about what I’m going to make as Christmas gifts so I pull out my patterns and my fabrics and see what moves me. I love making Christmas stockings, pillows, lap robes, and quilted pockets for tote bags and jackets. Sorry. Gotta go. My creative juices are flowing.

  80. My favorite summer quilting…all of it! I have to admit that I’m a year-round obsessed quilter! I do love hand piecing in the summer, though, to take along to parks while the kids play. This week I’ve been making hexagon flowers while watching swim lessons. pbstrand@msn.com

  81. I loved the comment from Jenny Squawk about the enthusiasm of her 6 year old daughter learning to sew! My mother taught me to sew while I was quite young as well, but we never got into quilting. Recently a friend introduced me to a quilter and my life will never be the same. I’ve completed 1 quilt and pieced 5 other quilt tops since this past March. I even dream about quilting! Since this is my first summer of quilting, the Patchwork Kindle Cover could very easily become my favorite! Many of my friends have those readers, so this will double the enjoyment because I can keep quilting while they get the covers to keep their readers beautiful, cushioned & protected. I hope Jenny’s little girl continues to enjoy sewing and receives one of those fabric packs!

  82. great fabric. Love the project. I’ve been sewing sleep shorts for the grandkids using some the cotton novelty fabric from my stash. They are thrilled. Doesn’t even make a dent in the stash!!

  83. Sewing together the fabric strips left over from previous projects to make new fabric. I can then use this fabric for pillows, purses, placemats or cut up into squares for future quilts.

  87. This looks simple enough. i have not sewed in over ten years. it will let me get back into it. hanks also for letting me have a chance at the free fabric. Thanks.

  88. This summer my favorite quilting projects are finishing up my entries for my guild’s quilt show in August. If I have time, this project would make a great item for our gift shop. If you are near Mooresville, NC August 16 or 17, check out the Lake Norman Quilter’s show. Would love to win either fabric bundles. Great summer fanrics!

  89. What a great gift idea! A personalized e-reader cover is something many of my friends can use. Love the Moda fabric packs. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  90. My favorite summer projects are small in size and use bright, flowery fabric. Summer is also a good time to work on the UFO’s when it’s just too hot to garden! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome fabric.

  91. Would love to win some summery fabrics. I can survive the heat wave we are experiencing, and when it gets cold and snowy I can enjoy the project I created and think fondly of the “warm weather” – smile. Pat

  93. I plan to make some patchwork pillow covers for my sofa. I’ll put a zipper on the backside, so it’ll be easy to change them out for seasonal variation. I’ll also make glasses cases as gifts. These fabrics will be perfect!

  94. Dragonflies remind me of the baby quilt I made two years ago for my grandaughter! She loves to rub her hands over the fuzzy bodies & the wings. Would love to win this fabric for my stash.

  95. I’m making an apple appliquรฉ table runner right now. I love the contrast of the red and green apples and my light background fabrics. So fun! I’d love to win some happy bright summer fabric!

  96. In the summer months I like to finish up the projects I may have started last fall/winter so I won’t be bogged down by too many WIPs going into the current year fall/winter! Love the fabric! Ani in NC

  97. I like smaller projects in the summer, such as bags/totes, pillow cases and place mats/table runners. These are such pretty fabrics. Love the dragonflies!

  98. Those lovely fabrics would certainly brighten up the cold winter days here ‘Down Under’! The sun is out but the wind is oh so cold! We all need a big splash of colour during the cold days of winter!

  99. Last summer I made patchwork log cabin wrist pin cushions for my friends birthdays, so useful in the sewing room! But these fabrics shout out to be made into a drees for my newest granddaughter, she is so cute, but it would be for next summer, a good project for the cold winter days ‘Down under’ and a foretaste of Spring and Summer to come! The sun is shining here but the wind is Oh so cold! These fabrics would certainly brighten up the sewing room with dragon flies and flowers!

  100. Doll quilts are always popular in this house and much more pleasant to make in the heat than anything big! I love those cafe curtains featured in this magazine, so that might go on my summer sewing list also.

  101. I love fabrics and would be very happy to add these fabrics you are offering to my stash. I do a lot of quilting for family members and having a variety of fabrics means I don’t have to run out to buy more when I start small projects.

    Karen

  102. I’m not much of a quilter…yet. I’m still learning and playing around. But I would love to win the fabric. It would make for a pretty first “real” quilt project.

  103. I love to spend the summer selecting fabrics for projects to do later in the fall and winter when I spend more time indoors. These would make a nice addition to my “stash” for a project later.

  104. Perfect colors for some fun summer projects! I own 101 Patchwork Projects and have made several items in the issue. They are fun and easy to make. Love it and the fabric! Would love to have the fabric to make some more things this summer for gifts for friends.

  106. Summer time says Bags! I make fun saucy bags, beach bags and tote bags. But I am also working on my next quilt, and have my Christmas present quilts in my mind. I would love to win this summery fabric, thanks!

  107. Lily Ashbury’s examples on her page are great choices; my daughter would look terrific in a sassy apron with those colors. Meadow Friends has a nice variety of color combos and choices of insects used. I also like the damask pattern and the paisley or is it a tear drop fabric pattern? At any rate they would be a great addition to my stash!

  108. My favorite quilting project is completing two ABC quilts for my grandsons. Each needed to be different because of the things they like. Their ages are 6 and 4. I just purchased my iPad so a cover would be great.

  109. I really love both fabric collections. I am an outdoor kind of gal and love to garden so these fabrics speak to me. Hope I am lucky. Looking forward to making the tablet cover. Thanks for the project.
    Bonnie

  110. I’ve just added “kindle cover” to my summer project list (and Summer is getting shorter and shorter!) I think I’ll skip the button in the center, I’d worry about it damaging my screen. A little velcro along the edge will do the trick.

  111. In the summertime, I like making table quilts to use as part of my outside decor on the patio. Since my husband just received a Kindle for his birthday, I guess one of my next projects will be making a cover for him using Lindsey’s great pattern. Thanks for the chance to win these fun fabrics!

  112. I would love to make a bright summery appliqued tablecloth for my kitchen table. These fabrics look like they would be a perfect fit for gorgeous bright happy color! Thanks for the opportunity to win them.

  113. Beautiful fabrics! I moved recently and we have dragonflies here which I have found to be so beautiful. I have had a hand injury requiring surgery and have been unable to use my right hand for several months. The first thing I am going to do when my hand is better is head right to my sewing machine and I would love to have any of those fabrics to use for my first project.

  115. I’m finding myself doing hand sewing this summer – it’s easy to take along. That said, I think I’d make quilted jewelry rolls with handsewn ornamentation – and get a start on my holiday gift-making!
