Italian Tiles Sew Along: Week 8

Sew Along


Well friends.. we have reached the end. There have been good times and more good times. I'm so grateful you all decided to sew along with me! 


We are getting our quilt tops assembled this week! You all know where we are going here.. I start with the star blocks. Once they are attached, add the borders and sashing. Then, you' re done! 


I use my walking foot here too. I really find it to always be helpful, honestly. It keeps all the layers together so that nothing slides around while you're piecing.








Now that you're quilt is all assembled you have got to plan our your quilting right?! Well this time I went with a professional long-arm quilter and I am hooked now! Look at how beautiful this quilting is from Kaitlyn Howell at Knot and Thread Designs



Psst... Don't forget that Kaitlyn is offering 20% off to all Italian Tiles Sew Along Participants but this offer expires 9/26/19 so make sure you get her your quilt ASAP. 


While she quilted this one - I also had her quilt my Christmas Brothers Quilt. I think I will always leave my quilting to the professionals... I seriously love it.




Don't want to send your quilt out? Here are some at-home options. I use my walking foot for quilting too. That is a MUST for quilting! I did 1" straight line quilting on the first quilt and 2" diagonal quilting on the second.





I hope you all had a great time with this pattern. Feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you thought!
