'Blue'tiful Quilt Pattern Sew-Along!

Hello again!

We are quickly coming to the end of the Bluetiful Quilt Sew-Along.  If you are creating the Lap size, this is your final week.

This week, we are putting those beautiful Log Cabin blocks together for a border.  Follow the instructions in your Creatively Yours Pattern Book starting about half-way down on page 10.

Let's get started!

                                 

Bluetiful Quilt Sew-Along

Here is where we left off last week from the Center Medallion for the Bluetiful Quilt.

(Sorry for the bad lighting in this photo.  I think I forgot to turn off my cutting table overhead light.)

Sew your Log Cabin blocks into two rows. 

Sewing Tip:
  • Pins are your friend to help match up intersecting blocks!
  • Don't be in a rush.

Add those rows to the top and bottom of the Center Medallion.

Sewing Tip: 
  • Watch the orientation of the blocks and the rows.
  • Pin! Pin! Pin!

Do the same for adding the Log Cabin borders to the sides.

Sewing Tip: 
  • Continue to watch your block and row orientation AND watch those corner blocks.  They are going their own direction, not in usual orientation of the other blocks.  (Of course, you can take creative liberty with the corner blocks if you prefer a different orientation.)
  • Pin! Pin! Pin!

Yahoo!  All sewn together with a border and the Lap size quilt is done.  Quilt, bind, and label to your preference.

I created the Queen size quilt, so join me next week as we continue with the Bluetiful Quilt.

                                       
See you next week for Piecing the Queen Final Border!

The Bluetiful Quilt Pattern Sew-Along articles will be published here on our blog. 

Bluetiful Quilt Kits are available but supplies are limited. 

Want to use your own fabrics?  No problem.  I understand many of you are using your stash fabrics.  Or maybe you want permission to shop for some new fabrics.  The Creatively Yours Pattern Book is available separately.

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.


This is not a Zoom Class and there is not a specific time to check in.  Sew at your own pace as you follow along with me on the Sew-Along schedule.

Our Private Bear Creek Quilting Company exclusive Sew-Alongs Facebook Group is available for requesting to join HERE.  Be sure to complete all the questions and agree to the group rules or the automated-moderator may deny your request to join.
