This month I was fortunate enough to team up up with girls from Quilt101, I had the choice of choosing one of their lovely quilt packages… I knew straight away which of the fabrics i was going to choose ‘Blue Carolina’…
With the kits they offer, you get to choose the pattern, the fabrics, the backing and the binding, and wait for it, the best part… they cut it for you!!
Yep, all the strips, the backing and the binding all arrive pre-cut! I really enjoyed how quickly this came together, and without the hassle of cutting large pieces of fabric – fab idea!!
For this particular pattern, it was just a case of sewing all the strips together, cutting them into squares and arranging them…
The backing I chose ‘Carolina White Lace’ and the binding was ‘Carolina Blue Tile’
I did a simple zig-zag stitch to quilt it, I don’t usually do this stitch on my machine, so it was a refreshing change
I would thoroughly recommend these kits to anyone new to quilting, someone looking to get into the hobby, or for anyone like me, who dislikes cutting large pieces of fabric, they even have video tutorials for each one of their patterns
