Tie One On Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Earlier this year, Scott Hansen of Blue Nickel Studios introduced his first fabric collection for Banyan Batiks (a subdivision of Northcott). While I typically don’t use batiks in my work, when Scott contacted me and asked if I was interested in cutting up his new collection, Tie One On, to see what I can make, I said “Yes”! I love opportunities that force me to work outside my comfort zone. The color palette is typically not one I would work with but I was excited for the challenge. Side note: Scott was also a bit surprised when I requested white solid fabric to accompany the Tie One On fabric bundle!

Scott sent me the Sedona colorway of Tie One On. Check out the story (and all of the colorways) of the collection on Scott’s blog.

I decided to make a Sew Speedy wall hanging with my new fabric bundle. It’s Jelly Roll/Strip friendly and against a crisp, solid background the prints and color of Scott’s collection really stand out nicely.

The fabric was easy to work with and I love how different this batik version is from the other Sew Speedy samples I’ve made. It’s amazing how the same pattern can look so different depending on your fabric choices!

A great mini quilt to make as a wall hanging for your sewing space or gift to a sewist! Sew Speedy is a graphic wallhanging / mini quilt that features sewing machine needles and uses foundation paper piecing techniques. Make additional blocks to make a larger quilt (layout ideas are provided). Sew Speedy is pre-cut strip friendly! Use a pre-cut strip roll (with at least 31 strips), add 1⅓ yard fabric for the background of the quilt top and you can make this mini quilt top, back and binding!

  1. Oh, let me see…….. these look like they would make a great tote, zipper pouches and with leftover bits n pieces, mug rugs! Let’s see how far I could stretch these! Lol!!

  2. Love this fabric. Not sure what I would make at this point until I see a larger piece of the fabric. Maybe I would construct another wall hanging.

  3. I don’t use batiks often either, and especially with these bolder, more random patterns. I do love the combinations of colors used in this bundle and think they’d look great in a delectable mountains block, or in a drunkards path. Considering they are called ” tie one on” perhaps that might be perfect.

  4. Your quilt is lovely and I love the bold colours of Tie One On. I mostly make bed quilts, so I’m sure that’s where this bundle would end up! 🙂 (christinacreating on IG)

  5. Oh, I would sew love to win this bundle! I know that I would make a fantastic quick throw for my son in college—I already know the pattern I would use! I love the pattern, the batiks used—Tie One On—such great fabrics for boys and men!!!! Oh, such perfection!!!

  6. Oh I would sew love to win this bundle!!!! I would make a throw for my son at college—just love the masculine fabrics!!! I already know the pattern I would use! I love your patterns, have many of them already!!! I will be signing up for your class at YQ also!!! Loved meeting you on Fall Preview Day there!

  7. i think these fabrics would be great for a lap quilt with a masculine feel. maybe a tie from one of the prints. thanks for the chance to win.

  8. I like your mini quilt. I am not sure what i would make with the Tie One On fabric. They are beautiful fabrics. I think they would be perfect for a star quilt.

  9. I’m quite crushing on your paper pieced mini quilt I have a paper piecing project that is perfect with Scott’s Tie One On collection ⚜️

  10. I would use the Tie One On line for gifts I want to make for loved ones. I also like the modern quilts and the line looks great in your Sew Speedy pattern

  11. I would make your sew speedy quilt with this fabric. I have been admiring your quilt pattern for a long time. I love how every fabric combination you use just keeps making sew speedy better and better. Beautiful work on your pattern. Thank you for the chance to win. Kindest regards. Janie

  12. I started a quilt last summer with Scott’s hashtag pattern and it has a Southwest vibe. Some of his Sedona batiks would give it the perfect feel.

  13. Love what you made! I haven’t seen that pattern before.
    I’ve been waiting months for this fabric release. I have about TEN patterns chosen…now to narrow it down?

  14. Well, until today I might not have had an answer to the question but I do so love the Sew Speedy mini quilt. I would make that in a heart beat. I do not love paper piecing because it wastes so much, but I would do it!! I just love your pattern and Scott’s fabrics make it sing!

  15. First thought I had was making dresden plate blocks since the blades look like ties.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  16. I love the batiks and your project choice. Not sure what I’d do with the fat quarter but I’m sure I could figure it out.

  17. I love the Sedona color way. These colors would look great in a New York Beauty block or a feathered star. Thanks for sharing. grinnie1961 at gmail dot com

  18. Your wall hanging is fantastic. These batiks are so different in color and pattern than usual batik fabric. They are such fun patterns. I would love to have a tote out of these batiks and the scraps would go into my postage stamp quilts.

  19. So many choices, just one? I think what I make would depend on which color way I was sent. I love each one for different things. It is interesting to see you pattern in a totally different color version & fabric.

  20. This fabric selection is exciting, new, innovative use of color not typically promoted. A small quilt for my grandson would be a perfect project.

  21. I love your Sew Speedy – just adorable and sew versatile especially with those gorgeous batiks! Really an inspired use of fabric! Love it! churcaeatauburndotedu

  22. So many ideas popped in my head as I read through each blog post. BTW – love your mini-wallhanging. I think I would want to make a set of placemats and table runner with these fabulous fabrics.

  23. Your pattern would look sew good in our sewing rooms! Thank you! I think my next project will be something pointy. Some type of compass pattern with lots of color. Maybe on black.

  24. Wonderful quilt – I love paper-piecing! A quilt of course, I hope as nice as your giant needles one! Thank you, Susan

  25. That is a cute pattern and it looks fabulous in those fabrics. What would make something simple that lets the beautiful designs shine through. I have been thinking about making journal quilts again and this would be perfect for those.
