Quick and Easy Honey Bun Quilt Projects

 Hello Friends! Happy Tuesday!

Honey Buns another Moda Fabric precut are like mini jelly rolls, they too contain 40 strips of an entire fabric collection but measure a thinner width of 1.5 inches.

Today I'd like to share a couple of projects I made using the Winter White honey bun by Holly Taylor.

Easy DIY Quilted Placemats

One of my favorite bloggers is Connie Kresin of Freemotion by the River. She offers a wealth of quilting information on her site - all kinds of patterns both free and available for purchase.

I used her Quilted Log Cabin Placemat tutorial to make a set of Christmas placemats for my Etsy shop.

Connie used 1.5 inch wide scraps in her tutorial which is why I thought this would be a great project for the honey bun. Her tutorial included the exact cutting measurements making this project a breeze to create. I made a set of 4 placemats, each in a different colorway from the honey bun bundle.

Honey Bun Table Topper

One of the ladies in the template group I belong to recommended the Slide and Trim Hexagon Log Cabin tool for our September 2023 project.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun using this ruler turned out to be! OMG the potential for making scrappy goodies is amazing! I did use the Winter White honey bun for a coordinated look, but was able to use scraps from the placemats for the beginning rounds in the table topper.

I still have several strips from the honey bun remaining to make a set of matching mug rugs!

Until next time....craft the life you love❣
