Helpful Tools for Making the Keepsake Quilt

I found these quilting tools particularly helpful while making the Keepsake Quilt pattern:

Quilting Techniques in this Star Quilt Pattern

The main building block of the classic sawtooth stars in the Keepsake Quilt pattern are Flying Geese and simple squares. The Flying Geese are great for beginner quilters and the pattern teaches a really neat technique that you’ll love. A baby quilt like this one is a great opportunity to practice a new skill like these sawtooth stars!

The Keepsake Quilt pattern is ideal for any skill level quilter looking to expand their sewing technique skillset. Within the pattern, you will find complete step-by-step instructions for every step of making the quilt top. Plus, I even include a link to bonus tutorial with a video to help you in case you get stuck with the Flying Geese Quilt Blocks.

Straight Line Quilting Details

I did the quilting on this baby quilt using my domestic sewing machine (a Husqvarna Viking!). The quilting was actually surprisingly easy! It’s a simple diagonal crosshatch grid spaced 3″ apart. Once I finished the first grid, I added a second one a half inch away from the first! Easy peasy and packs a ton of texture!

Do you enjoy straight line quilting too? Here are a few hacks for perfecting your straight line quilting!
