'Blue'tiful Quilt Pattern Sew-Along!

Hello and Welcome back! 

Planning that Catch-Up week right at the Memorial Day holiday weekend was a nice break.  I hope it allowed you time to finish getting your blocks created.

For the Sew-Along Schedule, I divereted from Deb's instructions just a bit to create all the blocks needed for the quilt before any assembly.  This will make assembly super fast!

This week, we will use the Cat's Cradle blocks and the HST Variation blocks to create the Center Medallion.  Follow the instructions in your Creatively Yours Pattern Book starting about half-way down on page 9.

Let's get started!

                                 

Bluetiful Quilt Sew-Along

This is the middle row of the Center Medallion for the Bluetiful Quilt

Be sure to press well as you go along.  Personally, I am Best Press Starch girl.  Pressing with a light starch spray now will save time later on the final quilt pressing.  And it's easier at this point, because you are not struggling with a large flimsy quilt top.

Next, piece and press the necessary blocks to create the rows for around the Center Medallion.

I love how it's coming together!  This Center Medallion would be great for a little table topper.

The Bluetiful Quilt pattern is required to participate as no cutting/sizing information will be given.  The Bluetiful quilt pattern is one of many patterns in the Creatively Yours Pattern Book available HERE.
