Sunday Sneak Peak

How many of you have never sewn a quilt before?

I had never sewn a quilt until I made the Zig Zag Quilt for my sister last Christmas.

Bottle Cap Necklace - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

I was pretty much terrified to quilt, but after having done a few of them, I can understand the obsession quilters have. The fabrics are so beautiful and designs are so cute! And it is so rewarding to have a finished quilt that you made all by your self! 🙂

Now I am just finishing a little baby quilt that will be used as a
prop for monthly pictures and also as a play mat.
I am so excited!

I am going to be showing how to put together the top and back pieces. I will also be doing a tutorial on how to baste a quilt, how to quilt the pieces together, and how to bind a quilt.

So if you’ve never quilted before, now’s the perfect time! 🙂

Check out our Quilt Patterns to find the perfect one to start on.

I love this one called A Girl’s Best Friend by Abbey Lane Quilts.

When I do the tutorial on the quilt top, I’ll go over all the supplies needed.

For now, find a quilt pattern that you love and browse our fabric section.
We have so many cute fabrics, I know it will be hard to choose. 🙂

Some of my favorites right now are –

Chelsea by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics

Prince Charming by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics

Urban Zoology by Anne Kelle for Robert Kaufman Fabrics

Citron/Gray for Michael Miller Fabrics

And so many more!

So get browsing and I hope you’ll join me and make your own very first quilt! 🙂
