Hi! My name is Beth A.K.A. Bettina from Bettina Danger! I am a math educator and quilter living in Austin, Texas. As September marks “Back to School” month for many parents, teachers and students, I’m thrilled to share some mathematical inspiration for your next Cuddle quilt! I call this the Fraction Remix Quilt because it is a “remix” of my original fraction quilt. If the top strip represents one whole, the other strips in the quilt represent halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, and sevenths. Can you see the fractional parts?
Hello! I’m Lindsay from Lindsay Sews and Craft Buds, and I’m here today to share a little project I whipped up for my son, now 7 months. Early in life, Elliot fell in love with his stuffed bear with a little soft blanket attached. When nothing else would make him laugh or smile, Mr. Bear could! Well, he loved it so much that I decided to make him a backup toy using the SCORE! Collection from Shannon Fabrics. Since my husband is a baseball fan, I figure Elliot will someday inherit this love of sports.
As a sponsor of the One Million Pillowcase Challenge, we’re excited to participle in the annual Blog Hop via All People Quilt. The One Million Pillowcase Challenge has a goal of donating 1,000,000 pillowcases to charity! To help reach this goal, APQ is having a 24-hour Sew-a-thon in September at their headquarters in Des Moines, IA.
And, shops and groups across the country are doing their own Sew-a-thons! To find a shop in your area, click here.
We recently made this pillowcase for the challenge. We used the Free pattern: Pillowcase Pattern #21 – Pillowcase with Rickrack Band. Fabrics include Sock Monkey Play Time Baby Blue from Sock Monkeys, Swiss Dot Red/Snow from Cuddle Classics and Cuddle 3 Black from the Kozy Cuddle Collection.
If you’d like to make a pillowcase with Cuddle, find Shannon Fabrics at local quilt shops and fabric stores, and also at online retailers.
We will be donating our pillowcase to a local charity for children in Los Angeles. Won’t you help by making some pillowcases? Comment below with the hashtag #APQSewathon and let us know where you will donate yours!

Hugs with Cuddle,
