Today is our super happy
big finish day!!!
Isn't it amazing that we can
take a pile of fabric...
Cut it up into pieces...
Add fun notions...
And end up with a beautiful quilt!
I don't know about you...
but when I look at each quilt
that I've ever made...
I remember making it and also
everything else that was happening
in my life during that time:)
It makes me so happy that you
have joined my
and added even more sweet memories
for me...thank you so much!
Now that your blocks are
all sewn together...
it's time to add the borders:)
Hopefully you have been cross stitching
your flowers all along the way...
And have added the scrappy strips
around each of the ones
that go into the border!
Remember that tutorial from week one?
The border block instructions are there.
Use the cutting and directions on page 10 of the guide to add your borders:)
I've taken several photos of my
quilt top after my borders
were added and
before the quilting...
And after the quilting and binding too!
Speaking of binding...
don't forget to tuck the large
Vintage Trim inside because
it adds so much vintage sweetness
to your quilt:)
Simply top stitch it to the edge
with an 1/8" seam allowance
before sewing on the binding:)
My friend Juli Stubbs did a
fabulous job with the quilting...
And I took several photos so that
you can see how she quilted it:)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this quilt.
It was such an amazing
labor of love from start to finish.
thanks so much for joining me!!
Remember that each and every week
of this sew along will ALWAYS remain
here on my blog so that you can finish up
at your own speed...
or start from the beginning!
Depending on your individual sewing time...
some of you may not have been able to
keep up with the sew along weekly....
or you have purchased a kit and are just starting now...
As usual... each and
every week's tutorial will
remain on my blog forever.
Just look at the right sidebar
(you must be viewing it in full web version)
and scroll down until you
see the sew along and click
on that week you need to see:)
So my next big announcement is that
at the end of this summer
I will begin my next sew along journey
and you are of course...invited!
There will be a new set of
Sew Simple Shapes...
And a new quilt...
And new fabric that
will be arriving in July.
If you would like to make my
Autumn Love Quilt with me...
check with your fave quilt shop
and preorder your kit!
This is really going to be a
fun sew along and will be
just like my previous sew alongs
with my Sew Simple Shapes.
We will have a free PDF of the
Sew Along Guide
and then each block tutorial
will be here on my blog
each Monday starting in August.
I hope you will join me
on this next adventure!
