The Bubbly Quilt….


If you are new to the blog, welcome.  You have reached an archived  free pattern.  We typically put up new blog post twice daily so there is always something new and fresh here.  Click HERE and see what’s new today…

I finished my Bubbly quilt….finally.


The quilt started from a left over pile of scraps, my Accuquilt Go!, and my circle die.


The quilt is made using raw edge appliqué.  I really had never thought about using this technique  until I saw a fun quilt Crazy Mom, Amanda Jean made called Ticker Tape.


It was LOTS of fun and hope to make another quilt some time in the future.  You can see the circles are just laid on top of the fabric and sewn down in a circular pattern.  Then on the background fabric, I did a simple stipple type pattern.


Fun and EASY!


The binding is scrappy.


It’s fun to see what can be made with left overs from my Schnibble quilts.

Bubbly-4Kalissa and Gracie think the quilt is their quilt.  Kalissa has begged for the last few Schnibble quilts that I’ve made so I am caving in and letting her have the quilt….I figure it has all the fabric she “loved”.  If you want to see more details on how I made the quilt, Kalissa helped me make a little video…. You can watch it here.

It really is a fun and easy project.  If you are new to our blog, welcome.  We blog daily sharing tutorials, projects we’re working on, our house remodeling adventures, our beagles, recipes and anything else that happens around here.  You can find today’s current posts here.

    Wow! The quilt is truly inspirating. Your photos are done well. I am still wondering how you get all this done? Have you got Hubby sewing?

  20. Sandy A says:

    Very cute quilt! Glad you got it finished! I would love to have a chance to win the left over bubbles. I am doing a challenge with my guild where you draw a gift bag from the stash and have to make a quilt based on the bag. Mine is turquoise with hot pink circles….:)

  21. I am off to watch the video, but would love the extra circles, I want to make your quilt too!!

  22. Valerie says:

    Such a cute quilt! I would love to win your scraps so I could make one too. Thanks for the chance.

  23. MoeWest says:

    I really like how your bubbles quilt looks. And I would love to have your extra circles. Thanks for offering them to one of your readers.

  24. jfquilts says:

    What a great quilt! I’m starring this post and making one myself … could sure use those extras!

  25. Jess says:

    Love your blog and love the quilt. Would also love the scrappy circles – lots of love! :-) Thanks!

  26. Christine M says:

    Your circle quilt looks fantastic.

  27. Love the quilt and the raw edge, fun idea.
    I will refrain from the circle drawing, I have lots of fabrics of my own to use up. I do a lot of penny rugs, would love a circle cutter to cut them for me, that is the most time consuming part of it.


  28. Loulee says:

    What a lovely quilt. I love scrappy quilts and I’m always on the look out for new ideas.

  29. LoriD says:

    That is so stinkin’ cute! One of the cutest baby quilts I’ve seen lately!

  31. Toni Macomb says:

    I would love to have some bright circles! I have a stash, most dating from the ’90ies, and I am making myself use them BUT I don’t have many brights. I could sure use some to perk up my circle project. Thank you! Toni

  32. Jean says:

    What a great and fast quilt. Love your video, even think I could make one after watching the video. Love it.

  33. Carol says:

    I love your quilt. Please enter me in your drawing.

  39. Melissa says:

    Amazing quilt and so inspiring! Thanks for sharing!

  40. Steffy Clark says....... says:

    Just read about your circle quilt, think it it the most darling idea! Would love to be a part of your website, how do I go about it? Want to get some of the xtra scraps! I feel this would be a good start to my stippling, have never done it- and want to start very slow.If I could get some words of encouragement from you, that would help.

  41. Jenny says:

    I’m starting a circle quilt here in the next few weeks for my niece who is getting married next June. (Hopefully that is enough time!). I’m planning to use a black/dark background. Any hints or suggestions?

  42. CindyM says:

    Circles, circles, circles. I love circles. My favorite is reverse applique circles. How easy it would be if they were cut out on a GO. Thanks for the op. Good luck everyone.

  43. blueadt says:

    I LOVE your quilt & am thinking of making one as a Project Linus quilt. How big was your top fabric? I thought 1.5m might be a good size for a baby or toddler…

  44. Mary says:

    Hi! I know it’s been quite a while since you posted this but… when I clicked on the link for the Bubble Quilt video, I got a different video. Searching You Tube did not locate the video either. Is it still available? Thanks for sharing!

  45. Clare says:

    wish I could find the video or directions for The Bubbly Quilt
