Kailia's Quilt Sew-a-long Week 1
Happy week 1 of the Kailia's Quilt Sew-a-long!
The sew-a-long is 8 weeks long. If you are doing a scrappy version or are a beginner quilter and need a little extra time, this schedule should work well.
If you don't have a copy of Kailia's Quilt Pattern yet, this is the week to get it. You can find it here.
Let's talk fabric… So far I have made Kailia's Quilt using fat quarter bundles and scraps. This is a great pattern to pull fabric from your stash, or as in my case, dust off those large fat quarter bundles you have been hoarding.
When I made my rainbow version (below) I used two bowls to sort scraps with. All pieces large enough for the half square triangles went in one bowl, and all pieces for the striped blocks went in another. This made the cutting process easier because I knew which size I was trimming each scrap to.
I asked or looked around some of my favorite fabric shops for some fabric bundles which would work with the throw size of Kailia's Quilt. All of the bundles have 23 fat quarters in a bundle or over. Here are some bundles I found:
Kaitlyn from Knot and Thread Design has offered to sponsor our sew-a-long. She is offering 20% off all longarm quilting for quilts made during our sew-a-long (expires three months from the end of the sew-a-long). Visit her site to see her bag patterns and quilts!
Katie from Katies Quilting Co. has also offered to sponsor the sew-a-long. She is offering 20% off on longarm quilting for quilts made during our sew-a-long. She is also giving away free quilting to one lucky person at the end of our sew-a-long.
A big thank you to our sponsors! I can't wait to see what fabric you chose! Feel free to share on Instagram this week using the hashtag #kailiasquiltsal Feel free to email, or message me on Instagram if you have any questions.
