I know a lot of you have been waiting for this quilt-as-you-go tutorial, so here you go! You can find a video tutorial below which I had the privilege of filming at The Fat Quarter Shop with Kimberly and their wonderful team.
First, a little about my Quilt As-You-Go joining techniques as I’ve been getting lots of questions…
The quilt in this video tutorial is from the “Solstice Quilt” pattern from my first book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern. The main difference (other than the fabric) is in this video I show you how to add lace embellishments to the quilt. My first book has two quilt as-you-go joining techniques, and in this free video tutorial I explain how to use 1 of the 2 techniques.
My second book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Vintage, which comes out later this month (September 2017) has a 3rd and all new joining technique which renders a reversible quilt! You can read more about that in THIS post.
I pack a ton of helpful tips and tid bits into my books that are in an easy-to-read format, so be sure to check them out 🙂
The lace I used in my video tutorial are from my La Conner lace collection for Lecien fabrics, which can be found at The Fat Quarter Shop, along with all my fabrics and thread. Click here to see it all!
La Conner lace comes in 5 different colors, including: vanilla, peony, sage, blueberry and cranberry.
For this tutorial I used vanilla lace. And of course the fabrics are from my 2nd fabric collection for Lecien, called La Conner.
All right, here is the free video tutorial! I was way too nervous during this filming as it was my first tutorial I did while I was on site. However, everything you need to know to make this quilt came across clearly, which is all that matters! x-) I was a lot less nervous by the time I filmed my La Conner tote bag tutorial .
I worked really hard on this one (literally, I worked up a sweat during the filming process, lol!), so I hope you get inspired to try QAYG, or that it sparks some creativity. 🙂
With that, i’ll leave you with a couple more photos of this beautiful quilt! 🙂 The lace really adds so much charm!
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
