Ruffled Note Card

Ruffled Note Card by Stefanie Roman 
Hello! I am Stefanie from Little Lady Patchwork. I am so pleased to be sharing my first Moda Bake Shop project with you.
I love to make and receive handmade note cards. My Ruffled Note Card is quick and easy. All crafters, not just quilters can make it.
It is the perfect way to personalize a gift. If you were giving a quilt as a gift, my Ruffled Note Card would make a great matching accessory. You could even make several of them and give them away as gifts.
Have fun making your Ruffled Note Cards!

Leftover Jelly Roll strips (I used leftover jelly roll strips from Swanky by Chez Moi)
8 1/2″ X 11″ white card stock
Glue Stick
Ribbon or Ric Rac for embellishment
4 1/2″ X 5 3/4″ Envelope
Bone Folder or Dull Butter Knife

Cutting Instructions:

Cut the white card stock in half so that it measures 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″.
Fold the card stock in half so that it measures 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″.

Here are a few tips for making a crisp, clean fold in your card stock:
  • Measure 4 1/4″ away from the left side of your card stock.
  • Using your pencil, make a small dot at the 4 1/4″ mark. This will become your 1st registration mark. 
    • Move your ruler closer to the top of your card stock.
    • Measure 4 1/4″ away from the left side of the card stock.
    • Using your pencil, make a small dot at the 4 1/4″ mark. This will become your 2nd registration mark.


    • Use your ruler to line up the two registration marks. 
    • Use your bone folder to score a fold along the side of your ruler. If you do not have a bone folder, you can use a dull butter knife.
    • You may need to run the bone folder along the edge of the ruler several times in order to get a good fold line.

      •  Fold your card stock in half using the fold line that you created. Your card should measure 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″.
      Choose (5) coordinating jelly roll strips. I chose 5 jelly roll strips from Swanky by Chez Moi, however you can use any jelly roll strips you might have in your stash.
      Cut (1)  2 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ strip from each of the coordinating jelly roll strips.
      You will need a total of (5)  2 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ coordinating jelly roll strips.

      Step 1:
      • Fold the 2 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ strip in half.
      • Press the strip with your iron.
      • Repeat for each of the (5)  2 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ strips.
      Step 2:
      • Align the first jelly roll strip with the bottom of the white card stock. The jelly roll strip will overlap the edges of the white card stock.
      • Lift up one end of the jelly roll strip and place a dab of glue on the center of the white card stock. This will help hold the jelly roll strip in place while you sew it down.

      Step 3:
      • Sew 1/4 ” away from the raw edge of the first jelly roll strip.
      Step 4:
      • Lay the 2nd jelly roll strip on top of the first jelly roll strip. Use your stitch line as a guide for keeping the second jelly roll strip straight.
      • Lift up one end of the jelly roll strip and place a dab of glue on the center of the white card stock.

       Step 5:
      • Sew a 1/4″ away from the raw edge of the second jelly roll strip.
      • Your Ruffled Card should look like this:

        Step 6:

        • Repeat Step 5 for the 3rd and 4th jelly roll strips.

        Step 7:

        • Align the last jelly roll strip with the fold line on the white card stock.
        • Lift up one edge of the jelly roll strip and place a dab of glue on the center of the white card stock.
        • Place your scrap piece of ribbon on top of the last jelly roll strip.
        • Lift up one edge of the ribbon and place a dab of glue on the center of the white card stock

        Sew down the center of your ribbon.

        Your Ruffled Note Card will look like this:

        Step 8:

        • Turn your Ruffled Card over to the backside.
        • Align your ruler with the edge of the white card stock.
        • Trim off the excess fabric.

        Step 9:

        • Turn your Ruffled Note Card over to the front side.
        • Sew a 1/4″ seam away from the left edge of the Ruffled Card.
        • Sew a 1/4″ seam away from the right edge of the Ruffled Card.

        One Ruffled Note Card measuring 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″.

        Your finished Ruffled Note Card will look like this:
        Simply slide your card into the 4 1/2″ X 5 3/4″ envelope. It is now ready to give to someone special!

        Dreaming of South Carolina Tablerunner

        1- Charm pack Moda Swanky

        3/4 yard of Swanky Hamptons Peacock #16037-15

        1/4 yard or fat quarter of a solid pink

        Omnigrid tumbler template

        Choose 30 charms from your pack. Using a rotary ruler and cutter cut a 3.5 inch strip. Since a charm is 5 inch square, a 1.5 inch strip will be left.

        Using the Omnigrid template or make your own out of cardboard. The Omnigrid tumbler is 2 inches at it’s narrow end and 3.75 at it’s widest. The height at the center is 3.5 inches.

        Here is what one charm will yield. A tumbler, 2 scraps, a 1.5 X 5 inch strip and a 1 1/4 inch X 3.5 inch strip. Set the 1.5 inch strips aside for the prairie points. FYI….I cut all my tumblers and lost the pictures. I re-made the photo using a different fabric line…the cutting result is the same.

        The trickiest part of the tumbler is aligning the pieces before sewing. Offset the sides about 3/8 of an inch…
        Continue to piece so that you have 6 strips of 5 tumblers. Piece rows as shown.
        Trim the top by making a straight edge on the 2 longest sides. The short sides will be straight.

        Measure your top and cut 2 peacock fabric strips 1 1/4 inches by that width ~ approximately 18 3/4 inches. Add to the longest sides of the top.

        Pin, Pin, Pin….

        Continue on to adding the sides 1 1/4 X 12.5 inches.

        Cut 2 solid border strips 12.5 X2.5 inches. Sew to short ends of topper.

        Let’s make the mini prairie points, Choose 26 of the 5 X 1 1/2 inch strips and cut a square 1 1/2 X 1 1/2 inches from each.

        Fold in half length-wise and iron.

        Fold the piece inward so that the raw edges meet.

        Do this for both sides and iron. These are very small so accuracy is important.

        Pin, Pin, pin the the solid pink border as shown. Then baste about 1/8 inch from the raw edges. The raw edge will be covered by binding. NOTE* start your point placement about 3/8 inch from the edge and overlap the side edges about 1/4 inch.

        There are 13 prairie points on each end.

        Now you can layer and quilt the runner.

        I stitched a 1/4 inch inside each tumbler.

        And added a couple of quilting lines on the end border.

        To finish I cut 2 – 1.5 inch X width of fabric (42-ish) strips for single fold binding. I like to use single fold for small quilt projects that won’t have a lot of wear and tear.

        Notice the binding did cover the prairie points raw edge.

        Dreaming of South Carolina Table runner 12.5 X24

        I made most of this table runner while we were on vacation in South Carolina. This week as I finished quilting, my thoughts kept wondering back to the ocean…hence the name.

        Fabric Easter basket

        This cute basket is all about spring and would be so cute for an egg hunt or just for display!

        1 honey bun of your choice (featured is “Swanky” but another cute softer option would be aviary by 3 sisters)
        *1 package of piping (6yards) I used Wrights 12/32″ cotton filler cord

        *and 39 inches of smaller piping (for handle) I used Writes 6/32″ cotton filler cord (comes in a package of 10 yards)
        *my needle was a regular ‘ol needle (but make sure you have a THIMBLE, it’s murder on the finger without!)
        *and I used “Mettler” cotton silk finished thread (it’s sturdy) if you don’t that have just use quilting thread or sturdy thread.

        when you unravel your honey bun separate colors.

        start by sewing together 4 strips alternating colors randomly (I cut mine in half ,at the fold, because I wanted a more scrappy look but you can keep your strips full length).
        once you have 4 strips together fold in half and sew onto your thick piping.i then started to ravel around my piping with the fabric. once I got close to the end of my strips, I sewed 4 more strips onto the existing end (4 seemed to be the magic number. Any more on there and it became a tangled mess, and less and you were having to stop and sew too quickly in between)keep going through the full 6 yards of piping that comes in the package.when you get to your end of the piping, sew just like you did when you started through the piping and the fabric. this will not let the fabric unravel.start your coil and hand sew together from the center out by sewing the outer coil to the inner coil when you get to the 7th row out you will then start to “stack” your coil.just like when it was laying flat but now you sew it together from the top coil to the “stacked on top of” coilhere’s the best angle I could get of the stacked coil with the needle going in on the top and out of the “stacked on top of” coil do this for the whole basket till you get close to the end. where your “stacking” started (on the bottom),you will want to end your basket top. this way it won’t be lopsided (counting from the bottom up i have 8 rows all around).make sure you sew right before you are going to cut on the piping so the fabric wont unravel. cut off extra (should be a small tail NOT enough to go around one more time). and then tuck in a little so the raw end doesn’t show from the top. you now have the base of your basket.
        now on to the handle:just how you started your basket you are going to start your handle. I used the smaller piping for this and i cut it to 39 inches. fold fabric in half length wise and sew your fabric onto your piping at the end of the piping.
        ravel around the 39 incheswhen done raveling, sew the end so it doesn’t unravel. fold your 39 inches of piping three even ways like are going to sew through all three piping and sew the whole thing togetheryou will end up with this to attach your handle start from the inside and back through the outside. do this quite a few times to make the handle super sturdy. do the same to the other side of the handle. instructions by Vanessa from V and Co.

        one super cute springy Easter basket. (with base of aprox 6 1/2 inches in width)

        From LEMON, cut:
        4) 1½” strips for inner boarder

        From IVORY, cut:
        25) 6″ squares for waffle blocks
        –> sub-cut each square diagonally to yield 50 triangles

        From PEACOCK, cut:
        5) 4½” strips for outer border
        5) 2¼” strips for binding

        Each Turnover has a matching twin, and are conveniently paired together in the Turnover pack.
        Gather 25 twins (50 total) of the small/medium scale prints for waffle blocks.
        Gather 14 twins (28 total) of the large scale prints for setting triangles and corners.

        WAFFLE (block) ASSEMBLY
        1) Making one block at a time, gather one twin SWANKY triangle set and one IVORY triangle set.

        2) Cut out a 3″ square from each triangle. You will yield two small triangles and one square.

        3) Trim each 3″ square of the SWANKY and the IVORY to 2¾”.

        4) To the IVORY squares, join the small triangle of SWANKY to each side. To the SWANKY square, join a triangle to IVORY to each side. Press to the Swanky for all four units.

        5) Join one of each unit to make a secondary unit, and press in opposite directions.

        6) Join secondary units to complete the block. Press. Trim off dog-ears. Make 24 more blocks. Mmmm, pass the strawberries and whipped cream… it smells like waffles!

        7) From the 28 large scale SWANKY Turnover triangles, join 24 of them (chop suey style… do not match them with their twin) – to make 12 setting triangles. Note: The remaining 4 triangles of the 28 – you will use for your setting corners.

        8) From setting triangle unit’s tip, measure 5″ on center and trim off end. Use your seam as your guide.

        9) Lay out your blocks. Be sure to place blocks in alternating directions.

        10) Place your setting triangle units and corner triangles.

        11) Make quilt center by joining blocks, setting triangles and corners into rows. Press each row in alternating direction. Join rows to complete quilt center. Press.

        12) Trim quilt center’s sides ¼” past the block’s tip.

        13) Because you are working with bias edges, everyone’s touch is a little different – and finished center quilt my vary a tad in size. Your finished quilt center will determine what size to cut your borders. From the center of your quilt center, measure horizontally. Cut your top and bottom LEMON inner border strips to this measurement. Pin to top and bottom. Join. Press.

        14) On the quilt’s center, measure vertically from top to bottom. This will be your measurement for your side’s inner and outer borders. Join LEMON inner border to side PEACOCK outer border. Make two. Pin in place to quilt center. Join. Press.

        15) From the center of your quilt center, measure horizontally. Take 3 PEACOCK outer border strips and join end to end to make one long strip. Sub-cut long PEACOCK strip into two border strips to this measurement. Pin to top and bottom. Join. Press. Done!
        Layer with batting and backing, baste and quilt as desired. Bind. Snuggle.

        The finished Belgian Waffle quilt measures approximately 45″ x 45″.
        Strawberries and whipped cream optional – but highly recommended!
