I wasn't going to make this quilt. I was originally planning to use the gorgeous Soiree quilting cottons that QT Fabrics sent me to make a totally different quilt. But then I decided to set up a little poll to see which design you (my cute readers) thought the fabrics would look best in. You picked this one!
And I'm so glad you did. My 'Sparkle' quilt design turned out to be perfect for these fabrics. Don't miss your chance to win your own bundle of Soiree fabrics. It's my current SewCanShe giveaway that ends Monday night!
In order to eliminate the need for Y-seams in this quilt, I designed it to be sewn in vertical rows. There are two templates - a rhombus shape and a triangle. The pieces are large, so the quilt top comes together so quickly!
I'm writing up the pattern this weekend so I can post it here on Monday. I can't wait to share it with you! Make sure you get my newsletter so you won't miss it. :)
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
You may have noticed that I've been doing a lot of straight line (or wiggly straight line, lol) quilting lately... it's true! So here are 4 easy variations on straight line quilting that I think YOU will love.
Sew a row of pockets to keep extra things off your nightstand and organize your bedside!
I’ve got more amazing reader projects to show you… I don’t think you know just how much I love seeing the things that you make with my free sewing patterns and tutorials. Thank you so much for posting them to Instagram to show me!
I slipped a dowel through the quilt sleeve and in just a few minutes, it was up! I took these photos immediately after, so the wrinkles hadn't come out yet. But they are gone now, a few days later.
Dress up a plain binder with an easy padded cover!
This DIY binder cover makes your binder so much better with a large outside pocket and two inside pockets for pens, pencils, or scissors.
I'm so excited to offer you my first machine embroidery design! As many of you know, I recently bought a Janome Memory Craft 14000 Sewing and Embroidery machine from SewingMachinesPlus.com and I love it (see my unboxing post here). I find myself torn between sewing and embroidery - I can't get enough of either!
Can you guess which project won the vote?
I'm so excited to share with you this new little clutch bag pattern! I've been loving a whole lot of little bags that I see on Pinterest - especially those that have a zipper compartment on the inside - so I decided to incorporate a little zipper pouch inside this little bag.
