Lemonade Stand Mini Quilt with SpraynBond® Basting Spray
Hi there! It’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl! Living in California it’s all about the citrus and boy do we love homemade lemonade! Join me today as I share with you how to create this fun mini Lemonade quilt featuring HeatnBond® Lite and our SpraynBond® Basting Spray! Two items I can’t live without!
There is nothing better! I thought this would be a fun little quilt to add to your summer decor 🙂
The inspiration for this project came from Lori Whitlock’s latest fabric line Happy Day. It’s so summery and fun!!
Here’s how you can make one!!
(All seams 1/4″, finished quilt 33″ square, finished block 4″)
1 yard solid white
1 red fat quarter – Letters & hearts
12 fat quarters – pinwheels
1 red fat quarter – strip block
Scraps for jars and straws
1/3 yard red floral – outer border

For center applique portion:
Cut a 20.5″ x 20.5″ square from the solid white fabric.
Trace or print the letters and images (in reverse) on to HeatnBond® Lite Fusible Adhesive Sheets.
Heat set them according to manufacturers instructions to the wrong side of the desired appliqué fabrics.
Cut out each letter and image.
Peel off the backing paper and position according to the completed project photo. Outline stitch each piece two times (ugh) in black tread. The two times really makes it stand out.
There are 12 total pinwheel blocks in this quilt. Choose a different fabric for each pinwheel. I used my Sizzix Fabi to cut the triangles. Use your favorite method of constructing half square triangles (HSTs). They need to measure 2.5″ when completed. Make 4 HSTs of each fabric.
Press seams open. Lay out 4 HSTs like this and sew together as a 4-Patch. Press all seams open.
For the Strip Blocks:
Cut 3 strips from red fat quarter 1.5″ x the length of the fat quarter.
Cut 3 strips from white fabric 2″ x WOF. Cut the strips in half so they equal the length of the red strips.
Sew together in strip sets as pictured below. Press toward dark.
Cut in increments of 4.5″. You need 12 total.
Once the top, bottom, and side rows are complete, sew the side rows to the sides of the “Lemonade” appliqué portion. Press toward the appliqué piece. Then sew the top and bottom rows, pressing ward the appliqué piece.
Cut (4) 3″ x WOF strips of the red floral. Sew one to each side, pressing toward the red floral border. Square up the edges and cut off excess. No need to measure the length first.
Then sew a strip to the top and bottom, pressing toward the border and squaring up when finished.
Once the top is complete, use SpraynBond® Basting Spray to baste the quilt for quick pin-free basting.
I quilted meanders over the entire quilt.
Now gather some lemons and have yourself a lemonicious afternoon!! We made strawberry and blueberry lemonade too!!
