Get a Clue with Nancy Drew!


Nancy DrewStackWhen Linny J Creations posted last fall about the upcoming Nancy Drew fabric at The Fat Quarter Shop, I was in! I bought my first ever charm pack just so I could see a tiny sample of everything.  Thanks to inspiration from  Feathered Nest Studio, these fun little designs are now a set of 24 coasters. It was so easy . . . just stitch two squares right sides together along with a square of quilt batting (leaving a small opening for turning), trim the corners, turn, and topstitch. We’re having a B-I-G family get-together at our house in June (more on that to come!), so I’m all ready in the coaster department!  P.S. The beautiful basket is from 1840 Farm Mercantile. ♥

  1. I have no idea what I could use it for but I NEED some Nancy Drew fabric!! I can’t tell you the countless hours I spent reading all about Nancy and her adventures, wishing I could solve mysteries, drive a convertible and have a cute boyfriend named Ned 😉

    • I KNOW! She was one of the first “strong” girl role models I remember reading . . . well, except for Jo in Little Women! 🙂 I also got a yard of my two favorite swatches, so I’m going to make tote bags and fill them with ND books for two girls in the family who are at just the right age to start getting hooked on this fabulous character. 🙂

  2. That’s really neat! Nancy has always been one of my favorite characters. Their baskets are also so pretty!

  3. There are so many of us who grew up reading Nancy Drew Mysteries!! Grand summer days! You had the perfect use for that charm pack and, I’m sure, they will be the beginnings of many a conversation! Hugs, D

  4. awesome coasters! i WAS nancy drew as a child. then i grew up to be miss marple. well, i’m not that old, but my skills have definitely sharpened 😀

  5. Q My mom got me hooked on Nancy Drew. She still had her books for the 1930’s! Big, blue with yellow-orange title. Memories! I have to find that fabric. My daughter and I love to play the Nancy Drew mystery games on the computer. Between the two of us, we have all of them. LOL!

  6. Love your coasters and the fabric! Got hooked on Nancy in 4th grade. My best friend and I would always look for “footprints” or “clues.” We SO wanted a mystery to fall in our lap just like Nancy!

  7. Fabulous! Nancy Drew brings back childhood memories, what a neat idea making them into coasters, you can never have enough coasters thats for sure, mine always disappear with my 5 year old, he loves to hide them!!

  8. I have seen wonderful fabric in my favourite quilt store reflective of the Purple Hat society but this Nancy Drew fabric is totally new to me. I loved Nancy Drew when I was young and had all of the books in the series at that time which I still have in storage today. Thanks for bringing back such fond memories! ~Thea
