Tip and Tutorials Tuesday (Linky Party): The Simple Wishes Baby Quilt Tutorial

February 17, 2015


Last week’s Tips and Tutorials Tuesday was so much fun!  Thank you to everyone who linked up with their awesome blog posts.  I hope you will link up again, as you have tips, tutorials, and recommendations to share with others.

The most popular link of the week was by Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl….for her “Tech Talk Tutorial… Blogging Tips“. You clearly hit on a topic that we all are trying to master; so thanks for all the great information in a tidy little blog post package.



I will send your prize your way! (a charm pack of V. and Co’s Color Theory).

I hope to create a compendium with all the links from Tips and Tutorials Tuesday, so readers can scroll through and find information about topics that interest them.  I’ll be working on this project a little at a time, so if you have ideas about how best to organize it, let me know!

As for next week’s Tips and Tutorials Tuesday, the prize for the most popular link will be one of our pretty little fabric necklaces that we featured in last week’s tutorial!

This week, I wanted to share with you my tutorial for a new quilt pattern called Simple Wishes.  It measures 51.5″ x 55″, and it uses Moda’s pink Ombre fabric by V. and Co.  It’s featured this week over at Moda Bake Shopso if you’d like a printable version of the instructions, hop on over there and click on the PDF.

Simple Wishes is the first quilt that my daughter Sophie and I have made together.  She’s 7 years old, and has just started to become interested in my sewing machine.  So we sat down and sketched out some ideas together, talked about the quilt-math to figure out dimensions and measurements, sewed the hearts together (I even let her sit there and sew by herself a bit), ripped seams together, re-stitched seams together, and had a wonderful time bonding over the sewing machine.  We’re both so happy with the result, and hope you like it too.

    I love that you two designed it together! I spotted this at MBS the other day and am so excited for your first bake shop quilt 🙂 It came out perfectly and what a great use of ombre fabric! I’ll have to link up to your link party sooner or later once I can stop writing website code and get back to my sewing machine 🙂
