Week 8 of the Kailia's Quilt Sew-a-long

Happy week 8, we have made it!

We are at week 8 in our Kailia's Quilt Sew-a-long and it feels so good! Who is ready to put some rows together and finish this quilt? 

I have already seen several finished quilt tops on Instagram and they were so beautiful! Don't forget to share your quilt tops by Sunday evening for a chance to win our grand prize… more on that in a minute. 

Here are my tips on finishing your quilt top: 

You can randomly piece the rows together, this is what I like to do, making sure that two of the same fabrics are not touching. Then, I lay the rows out to see what order they would look best sewn together. I mostly check to make sure that there is a variety of fabrics in each section of the quilt and that the same fabrics aren't together. 


Or you can lay out all your blocks and sew them together in a more organized fashion. I don't do this mostly because I don't have space, and because this quilt is so scrappy you can easily make it work without lots of planning. 

Since we are finishing up our quilt tops this week, I wanted to remind you that Kaitlyn from Knot and Thread is offering 20% off quilting on all Kailia's Quilts made during the sew-a-long. They need to be sent to her by August 31 and make a note that you were part of the sew-a-long. 

Katie from Katie's Quilting Co. is offering free quilting to one lucky winner. She is also offering 20% off quilting services for Kailia's Quilts made during the sew-a-long. She needs to receive them by July 5th for the discount to apply. 


For the final giveaway of our sew-a-long I am giving away 3 patterns from my shop, and as mentioned earlier, Katie is giving one lucky winner free quilting for their Kailia's Quilt.

To enter post a picture of your finished quilt top on Instagram using the hashtag #kailiasquiltsal Make sure that your account is public so others can see your finished quilt.

Thank you for being a part of the Kailia's Quilt Sew-a-long! It means so much to have your support!
