Make It Do – Finished Flimsy & Pattern Giveaway

So, I have been doing some secret sewing, pattern testing for the lovely Jennie. And I’m happy to say, it’s an exceptionally well edited-pattern.

Okay, really, it’s well-written and easy to follow. Plus, obviously, it works on a very scrappy level! Inspired by the name of the pattern, and the fact that I spent a bit too much on new fabric this summer, I decided to Make It Do and make it stash-scrappy rainbow.

Mine took a little extra time because my scrap bins aren’t organized, but once I had everything cut, it took less than twenty minutes to whip each block into shape. For my baby-size version, that means a fast finish that looks complicated – my favorite kind of quilt.

Plus, I guarantee you the pressing instructions are perfect. 😉

The borders are a delightful Chez Moi print and the only new fabric in the quilt – I figure every stash buster deserves a new border.

{I majorly big puffy heart the little churn dashes made by the sashing cornerstones.}

Jennie’s version, full size {66×80″}, uses 30 F8s of Kate Spain’s Horizon, and also looks fantastic! I’m excited about this because F8s are becoming very popular, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of patterns out there for them yet.

So, all you need now is the pattern {on Craftsy and $5 for one week!} and a F8 bundle.

Wait, what? How about WINNING a pattern and a F8 set?

Okay, right here you can only win a pattern. Poor you. Just a free awesome pattern. Use Rafflecopter below and tell me what F8 bundle, or color scheme, you’d use for Make It Do. {Stuck on a color scheme? Jennie just happens to host Color Mondays, where there are palettes galore!}

Then, head on over to her blog for another chance to win a pattern. And read all about her inspiration and thoughts on the pattern.

THEN, head on over to her Instagram, where you can win a F8 bundle from Westwood Acres!

Lovely! Rainbow scrappy projects are among my favourites!
Love the secondary pattern that develops too.


I love blue, purple and green as a colour combination and have lots of scraps to use up.


I would sway towards the rainbow scheme. What a great way to obliterate my scrap stash.

I like the Flower Sugar Fat Eighth bundle! It would be great for a rainbow quilt….

I would make it with orange – WAY out of my comfort zone but I’m sure would be fun at the end.
Thanks for the chance to win!


I would make this pattern vintage, scrappy.


I took a look at the Color Monday’s pallets…I like the Ireland Paulette..dark greens and blues.

Love this pattern. Also love the Horizon colors. But chez moi is one of my favorite fabric designers so probably a mix of her lines from my stash. Cindy/ bluemoonstencils at yahoo dot com


I have a Christmas quilt on my project list and this is a pattern I would love to use. Guess that makes my color choice red and green. Thanks


Such a lovely pattern – I would use use Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille . Thanks for the chance to win this great pattern!


Miss Kate by Moda. love that line and think the colors would play so well in this pattern!

i would love to make this quilt in a rainbow pallet. beautiful


What a great pattern!! I also love the rainbow palette you chose! I’m really loving Navy and Gold (with a touch of gray) right now, so that has to be my answer. 🙂

I’d use Fancy or Pam Kitty Picnic Fat 8th bundles if I was using a new fabric line. Your scrappy version makes me want to “Make it Do” with my own scraps. Thanks for the inspiration and give away.


HI, I love the Pinks+Yellow look!
Thanks for your Blog+Giveaway too!


LOVE the rainbow scheme you did up! Blue is my favorite color, though, so the original also floats my boat. 🙂 This would adorable done up in the “Best Day Ever” set.


Love your scrappy version. Hard to pick a color scheme, maybe red, white, gray and black.


I love the scrappy rainbow colors, I would try for that.


The blue colourway is lovely!!!


I’d like to make one in pinks and yellows. Love those colors together!


Gorgeous scrappy quilt. I think I would use my Miss Kate or Indelible.


If you pick me, please pick one of the ladies who quilt. I just wanted to say I love your rainbow palette, but if I quilted, I’d be doing colors similar to Jennies. (She says as she lays under the Vera quilt you made!)


Blues and greens!!


Love your scrappy one and a churn dash so I hope I do win this pattern ! Thanks for linking up to scraptastic Tuesday !


I would make it scrappy, and use saturated colors, and probably a print background as well!

John Hutchens

I would use an orange color scheme

Glenda in Florida

I don’t think my comment took–I was thinking this would look great with scrappy orange fabrics for an annual challenge that I enter.


I love my western cowboy and cowgirl fabric so would try and use that:) Thanks

Penny G

I would use the Hawaii color scheme since I have those colors hanging out in the current scraps.


I love both colorways, but today I would lean toward the greens and blues.
They are both beautiful.

Crafty Ashley B

So pretty! Love the rainbow pattern!

barbara woods



I love the scrappy version as well, but I think I might want to make it up in pinks…….which I could still do totally scrappy!

Janet @ Simply Pieced

Your pattern testing gets an A+. I really like your scrappy rendition to a very scrappy friendly pattern. Thanks for sharing it on TGIFF!


I love this made with a rainbow scraps. A darling baby quilt!
