Sunday Mornings Quilt Pattern Sew-Along!

Week 5: Catch Up Week & Give-Away for participating members

(Looking for related posts?  Check the Sunday Mornings Sew-Along category HERE.)

Check in week.  What do we have left to do from previous weeks?  All caught up?  Need a week to get back on track?  Well, your wish is my command.  Let’s take a bit of inventory.


Sunday Mornings Sew-Along

If you are caught up, congratulations.  I am super proud of you for meeting your goals and getting the blocks done. 

If you are behind, this week is for you to know that you are doing amazing and I see your efforts.  I completely understand that life happens when we are trying to have a couple moments to quilt.  I am proud of you for sticking with it.  I know you can do hard things and I know that a few minutes here and a few minutes there make the biggest difference.  Don’t get discouraged.  Just keep going.


Things to keep in mind going into next week:

Tip 1:  Rows will be sewed on the diagonal. So if you are laying your quilt out and want to stack your rows, tack on the diagonal like the diagram shows you.

Tip 2:  If you have everything ready for next week and want to prep even more, be thinking about what you would like for backing and binding.  Those can be prepped this week so everything is ready for quilting after next week.


Tip 3:  Next week is assembling the quilt top.  If you are struggling to find time, you will have some time to work next week as well while we are doing the sew-along.  Plenty of time to complete the quilt. 

Sunday Mornings Sew-Along

If you have pictures you would like to share, we would love to see them. I am always amazed at the colorways that people put together.  Post them in our Private Facebook Group HERE.

I have made three quilts from the Sunday Mornings Quilt Pattern and each one is uniquely different and I absolutely love them all. 

They aren’t perfect and I have learned things along the way while making each one of them.  Remember to be kind and encouraging.  We are all at different levels and even an expert can make mistakes.  We are our worst enemy most of the time.  To have someone add to that destroys our confidence completely.  But if we encourage, lift each other, and celebrate our achievements together… we are unstoppable.  Keep going!

    I am way behind all of you but I love this pattern and can't wait to see it come together.

    This was a fun pattern to make. I chose Riley Blake “Sew Much Fun” fabric and as I started to cut the pieces I knew this quilt was going to be very busy but the real magic happened when the blocks are sewn together in rows and you step back and take a look. I really enjoyed this sew along as my Sunday morning memory is my time to sew. Thank you for a great pattern. I would love to make this again and do it scrappy!

    It's a cute pattern and a great motivator to keep at it.

    Pretty pattern . Thank you for designing it. I sew for our local QOV group. I’m always looking for ideas to utilize the scraps we create. This made a dent in that basket. We have a sewing group on Thursday and I’m hoping to finish the top then.

    It was fun watching the progress of each and every one. Nice just to go at my own pace and the ease of working the quilt squares made it so nice! I have done several and hope to continue to participate in the future!!! thanks for all that is done to pull off this time of program.

    What a fun experience! First, I have enjoyed all the different pictures that everyone is posting of their quilts. Second, I am a newbie to quilting and NO question went unanswered with numerous suggestions. And, lastly, the pattern was easy to follow!

    really enjoyed the learning new things and as other have said the flexability of fat quarters and yardage. Thank you

    I finally started the quilt, after road trips and family visits. I’m enjoying the process and really appreciate the videos with tips. I really like the option of using yardage or fat quarters and having each option listed.

    I like the fact that there is a catch up week. No stress about being behind. I still have to make four of block 2. I can easily catch up this week.

    A little behind because of some surgery but I'll get it done. Look forward to the new post each Sunday.

    This was a bit of a challenge, with sewing fabric on the bias and not stretching the fabric. It was a lot of cutting and stitching but the results were beautiful. I was trying to use up fabric out of my stash, I did buy 2 pieces for my 2nd block, couldn't find fabrics in stash to go with first block. At the end I am very pleased with the finish quilt top. I questioned myself on color way of the second block with putting it on the design wall with my first block. Now I love the colors I chose. Thank you so much for challenging me to go outside my comfortable!

    I’m trying to catch up. Our weather is hot. I don’t have air conditioning in my She Shed.

    What a fun project! I'm a little behind due to family reunions/vacation time away. I love that we can go at our own pace and enjoy the Sunday mornings sewing. Hardest part was choosing a colorway to start with!❤️
