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.

Let's face it, sometimes moms forget to accessorize. Well, this infinity scarf made with just a yard of soft cotton voile is an easy accessory that you can wear anywhere. And it has fine french seams and a neat 1/4'' hem. Lovely!
