Thanks to all who sewed along with us for our Sunrise Baby Quilt Sew-along! We loved seeing how you created your very own Sunrise Baby Quilts, and if you shared a photo with us you’ve entered our super goody-bag giveaway – and we’ll announce the big winner at the bottom of the post!
You still have a few hours to enter your photo in our Sunrise Baby Quilt contest, but you’ll have to stitch quickly! Send a picture of your completed quilt to us at firstname.lastname@example.org before 11:59:59 Central. We’ll post them Wednesday, April 3, and announce a winner next week.
Nearly done! This week Erika has absolutely fabulous instructions for stitching a double-fold, mitered-corner binding to your quilt.
You’ll be getting very friendly with your walking foot this week as you stitch back and forth across the layered backing, batting, and pieced top during this week’s Sunrise Baby Quilt Sew-Along installment.
Are you ready to start your Sunrise Baby Quilt? (As if we hadn’t already heard from many of you who are chomping at the bit!) This week we’ll focus on choosing fabrics. One of the striking features of this quilt – and a characteristic of Modern Quilting in general – is the use of solid colors.
I’ve stitched together a lot of different projects from garments and wearable art to accessories and stuffed toys – but never really gave quilting a try. In fact, if you had asked me a few years ago if I made quilts my answer would have been, “Quilts? Are you crazy, I am not a quilter!”
