'Blue'tiful Quilt Pattern Sew-Along!

Oops, I labeled the past two articles the wrong week numbers after that Catch-Up Week.  Because I have them posted in various places, I am not going to change it.  Sorry for any confusion.

Hello! Hello!!

Are you still with me?  One more set of borders and we are done with the Bluetiful Quilt top.

Let's jump right in.

Bluetiful Quilt Sew-Along

Here is where we left off last week.  The Log Cabin Blocks and Inside Border are complete.

This week we are adding the Cat's Cradle Block border and final Outside Border.

I took creative liberty and went with three final Outside Borders; a white, a light blue, and a dark blue.

I felt it was a good time to practice my mitered corner skills.  I know there are plenty of formulas for figuring out how much border you need.  I sometimes prefer to just do it non-mathematically and lay it out for visual calculation.

Not too bad for the first corner especially since I have not completed a mitered corner for several years.  Pins are my friend!
I will have my final reveal ready for you next week.
See you next week for our final meeting together on this project!

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.
