Frivolous Friday ~ On Tuesday…

Just in time for summer… a lovely, fresh, pretty collection.


This is the vintage-inspired Sew & Sew by Chloe’s Closet collection – the quilt is Sprinkles Baby Quilt by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts.  The pattern will be available soon – it uses Julie’s terrific Sidekick Ruler.

This is Shine, the Frivols 11 quilt.  It’s perfect for a summer throw.


Shine measures 55″ x 55″”.  The squares in the tin will be enough for the blocks and inner border, it just needs 2 yards of background fabric to complete the top.


A couple of the prints look like they come from vintage feedsacks but the measuring-tape print is quite contemporary.  There are a couple of sewing-quilting-theme prints that are my our favorite.


The scale of the print has been reduced for these pictures – both of the quilt blocks in the Black-on-White print are approx. 2″ x 2″.


This is the full 42″ width of this print – the checks in the aqua gingham are approx. 1/2″ x 1/2″ and the block is approx. 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″.


Frivol No. 11 – Sew & Sew will contain:

  • A roll of 42 squares – 7″ x 7″ from the Sew & Sew by Chloe’s Closet ~ there are duplicates of several prints.
  • The pattern for the quilt we’ve titled “Shine”
  • 1 Maker block card with a block pattern and a quotation
  • A positively adorable must-have-one-of-these Frivols-exclusive tin.

Note:  The pattern, recipe cards and Maker card are located under the printed insert – the tin is inside the riser.


If you have Frivols 8 – Bread ‘n Butter, this tin is the same size – approx. 2 1/2″ x 3″.

Maker Blocks. 


We’re almost caught up – I think Month 7 is still missing.

There are one or two simple “just for fun” Maker Samplers almost finished, one is made with one block from each of the Frivols tins.  The other is made with nine blocks for a table-topper, wall-hanging or pillow option.  The quilt I’m making is a bit bigger than that -most of the blocks were made in both sizes and there are some re-sized blocks from the different Frivols.  All are to show that sometimes it’s fun to make blocks without a particular plan in mind… to figure it out when you get there.

Don’t worry, you’ll know when I get there.


This is the Sew & Sew Layer Cake Sampler quilt – Project Sheets are available when the fabric ships in June.


And finally, this was too cute not to share – a Sew & Sew Sweetpea Pod bag made using Lazy Girl Designs‘ awesome pattern.

We’ll be back in July with the last Frivols – No. 12, featuring Blue Barn by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.

  1. So where can I purchase this Frivolous #11….just love the pattern & the fabric is JUST to cute.
    I agree with Barb it is a must have!!!

    1. Ellen, they are cute indeed! I couldn’t resist and ordered all the them! lol I would suggest that you check with your local quilt shop. You may even be able to see the sample made up, always a bonus!

  2. the only problem I have with these little tins that have come with two of the boxes now is opening them up – anyone else have that problem, mine are so tight that by time I get it open I would have spilled everything out of them – is there a hint on how to open them easily? Love the fabric and pattern in this box

  3. I love the vintage quilt! I have Julie’s ruler but haven’t broken it in yet. The Frivol medley quilt is adorable… and I’m thinking that those pinwheels would be a fun addition to any number of sampler type quilts!

  4. Oh no! Oh no! I knew it but say it isn’t so that the last Frivol (#12) is coming in July!! I’ve truly enjoyed each & every Frivol so much! In fact I’ve been introduced to a few designers, received fabric that’s out of my color world & patterns I probably wouldn’t select & think all are absolutely wonderful! I’ve even bought additional Frivols as bday gifts for special friends! I thank you so much and I do look forward to receiving Frivol 12!!

  5. If Frivols 12 is the end of the line, I hope Moda has something just as cute up its sleeve!

  6. I am missing the extra block instructions in my #11 Frivol cloud you possibly send me a copy of it, thank you
