When I needed a quick handmade baby shower gift! I love finding almost-finished projects just at the right time.
This quilt top is sewn from nine 12’’ (when finished) blocks with 3’’ sashing strips and a 3’’ border - with cornerstones. It finished at 48’’ square.
After sandwiching it with some batting and backing fabric, I used straight line quilting in a grid pattern, following the seams in the piecing as a guide.
Then I made a quick Studio Chat video to show you. I love being able to do that!
By the way, I re-organized my Free Sewing Patterns tab and now it is organized by category. Click above to check it out. The Free Quilt Patterns and Classic Quilt Block Patterns sections are all about quilting!
I wish that there was some way you could show me your quilts in a video too.
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.
Sew up this beautiful quilt faster than you think! It uses a super-quick log cabin piecing technique plus 2 1/2’’ strips so its jelly roll friendly too.
It took me an extra week to complete (blame Summer!), but I finally finished my prototype Triple Zip Bag!
This was the U-Pick Project that you voted for this month, and I’m so excited about how it turned out!
This week I received a darling bundle from Penny Rose Fabrics...
Remember this? My Pretty Quilted iPad case that I promised you a sewing pattern for so so long ago? Well I finally have it ready!
Be a sewing superhero who can sew sleeves on dresses!!!
You know what that means, there is something new today at This Little Light.
The third Tuesday (like today), is when new journaling pages and other printable are released so members of my sewing support circle can keep on planning, journaling, and more.
When I got these gorgeous canvas fabric prints that look so awesome together, I knew I had to make a bag that showed off two prints at the same time. This is a big sturdy tote bag that's perfect for taking to the beach, yoga class, or just to the grocery store. There are pockets on the inside and lots of room too.
