Confetti Quilt Sew Along - Week 5


Well I can't believe we have come to the final week of the Confetti Quilt Sew Along.  I am beyond humbled by all those who have joined in and for all the love this pattern of mine has been shown.  A massive thank you to you all for your support - it really does mean so much to me.

So this week is all abut getting your Confetti Quilt Top ready for Quilting, and Binding and being able to then finish it up.  I have put together some tips and links below which I hope will help you with the decisions for this next part of the process with how you will finish it.


When it comes to deciding on how to Quilt your Quilt - you have lots of options.

Quilt It Yourself - for those keen to quilt your own Quilt there are lots of ways you can tackle this.  You can simply quilt tram lines either sides of all the seam lines for simple but effective quilting.  You can get as adventurous as you like with Free Motion Quilting or even more detailed straight line quilting.  Or how about Cross-Hatching over the entire quilt or even using a Large Zig Zag stitch without needing a lot of experience.

For those wanting to give Free-Motion Quilting a go or already are familiar with this Technique, check out this Blog Post I wrote all about Machine Quilting.  I hope this gives you some helpful tips.

                             Machine Quilting and Free Motion Quilting Tips

Send it to a Professional - you can send your quilt to a Long Arm quilter who can either do and Edge to Edge Design or Custom Quilt your finished Quilt.


Once you have your Quilt all Quilted - now you can turn your attention to Binding your Quilt. There are so many Tutorials for how to bind you Quilt if you Google.

I have put together a Tutorial on how to work the Binding continuously around the corner when you sew it onto the top of your Quilt - its a small but very helpful and useful way to sew your Binding all on in one go.  Check it out here

You can also check it out here on Instagram (save it so you can go back to it.)

And if you want my best tips for how to sew your Binding with an invisible stitch then check out my Reel here.
