'Blue'tiful Quilt Pattern Sew-Along!

Welcome back!  This is our final meeting for the Bluetiful Quilt

Oh, parting is such sweet sorrow!  You are joining me in a few weeks for the Summer Picnic Quilt Sew-Along........right?

Ok, let's wrap this project up in a pretty blue bow!

Bluetiful Quilt Sew-Along

My Bluetiful Quilt was Long Arm Machine Quilting using Quilter's Dream Cotton Deluxe Batting and Omni thread Bright White color #3001 to match the white-on-white fabric in the quilt.

The quilting pattern is called Verdant from My Creative Stitches

We love all My Creative Stitches quilting patterns!  They are well designed and don't require any fussing.  Just load the machine and start stitching.

                                                 
Bluetiful Quilt Sew-Along
Yeah!  Here is my finished Bluetiful Quilt.  I am so in love with this quilt, and I am already thinking of other colors for the next quilt. 

If you follow the Bluetiful Quilt Pattern exactly, the Lap Quilt measures 66" x 66" and the Queen Quilt measures 88" x 88".

Because I took creative liberty and added three outter borders, my Bluetiful Quilt finished at 98" x 98".

Deb's Bluetiful Quilt Pattern taught me sooooo many new skills with the Creative Grids Rulers.  I am hooked! 

In fact, I am so hooked, I will be showing you how to use the Creative Grids Cat's Cradle Ruler for the Summer Picnic Quilt Sew-Along.  I hope you will join me.

Well, that's it!  I will see you back here on July 4th, to kick off the next Sew-Along.
