Scrappy Sneak Peek

Straight Line Quilting : Fresh Lemons Quilts

It’s been a continued busy but oh-so-fun week in my sewing space. Yesterday I stitched on the last of the binding and took pictures of my quilt that will be on BERNINA’s We All Sew blog as a scrappy pattern/tutorial/quilt along.

Straight Line Quilting : Fresh Lemons Quilts

It’s pretty much killing me that I can’t show you full photos of the actual project yet. I can tell you that it’s lap sized and a combination of alternate gridwork, negative space and scraps. You can also see that I did a lot of straight line quilting. I’ll post as soon as I know the dates the project will be live!

Summer Sparkle Quilt Along ~ Week 1

Summer Sparkle Quilt Along with Fresh Lemons Quilts

I know, two posts in one day…crazy! :) But today marks the first week of my Summer Sparkle Quilt Along over at Bernina’s We All Sew blog. If you have ever wanted to make a 4th of July quilt…or even just love stars…this is your chance! The Summer Sparkle Quilt is a Sawtooth Star design that uses color gradients in a fun way. I used Color Block Ombre fabric from Vanessa Christenson of V & Co’s Color Me Happy line for Moda. Isn’t it great?

** Someone emailed me to call to my attention that there are a few items that were left off/changed on the cutting instructions for my pattern. I’ve let Bernina know and they will correct, but hold off on cutting until I update this. (Feel free to go ahead and order your fabric though). :) ** Looks like everything is now up and correct over there!
