Even if you have zero sewing experience, this is the free quilt class for you!
Then, when you are all done piecing the blocks with Kimberly and you are ready to turn it into an actual quilt, I get to share my videos on how to quilt on your home sewing machine, we will get to finish them together!! Please come join me, I know you want to!! :)
The kit will give you everything you need to make the quilt in the image below. Cute huh?
All you have to do it take the Challenge...
Click HERE look for the round "Challenge Accepted" image just above this text and follow the rules!
For this quilt you’ll need the following fabric amounts:
• 12 Fat Quarters*
• 7/8 Yards neutral color (we chose white) for sashing which goes between the blocks
• 1 1/8 Yards for the border
• 3 3/8 Yards for the back of the quilt
For the batting, we suggest Happy Cloud Batting in Throw Size
*A Fat Quarter is a quarter of a yard that’s cut wider, at 18″ x 21″ so that you have more room to work with.

Block ONE is finally here!!
I really hope you'll take a minute to go read my previous blog post, I have a ridiculously embarrassing story about my first quilt,
and I know you will appreciate the feelings I had when I first started learning.
Here is the fabric that I have picked for my quilt, each week I will be posting pictures of my blocks with some tips.
Block #1 - make sure you go slow and cut the pieces the correct size,
and then sew very slow so you learn how to keep the 1/4 inch seam consistent all the way down the block,
Block #2 - Press your iron down, rather than pushing it around, while keeping the seam on the back side all going the same direction,
this will help it lay flat and look great!
See you next week.... :)
