3 Ways to Make a Patriotic Quilt

Regardless of your political beliefs, I think most of us can agree that if it weren’t for the hundreds of thousands of people who have been willing to serve in the military to protect our homeland, America would not be what it is today. I have such high regard for the amazing service men and women, and I wanted to make some patriotic quilts to express my respect and appreciation.

Vintage Lace Quilt made with AccuQuilt Go!

AccuQuilt Vintage Lace Quilt

Ever since Lo & Behold Stitchery released her Vintage Lace Quilt Pattern I have had my eye on it! I love the delicate, modern vibes and all the negative space in it, and I knew it would be the perfect quilt to do with solids. I had a busy summer but am thrilled I finally got around to making this gorgeous quilt!

To make things easy and speed up the process, I decided to cut out all my pieces with my AccuQuilt Go! Cutting System. If you’re not yet familiar with AccuQuilt, let me tell you about it! To be honest with you, at first I was pretty skeptical! The space in my sewing room is limited and I knew I did not want just another expensive toy to take up space. Turns out, this fabric cutting machine has totally revolutionized the way I look at quilting. I can easily and quickly cut out pieces for large quilts without putting strain on my shoulders and wrists the way traditional rotary cutting would. (I have Arthritis so pain-free is a total win!!) Not only is using the AccuQuilt quick, easy, and painless, but it’s way more precise too!

Quilt Pattern Review: Misty Mountains

I recently finished making this pink-loving baby girl Misty Mountains Quilt. I did baby size which finished at 36″ x 36″.

The pattern for this quilt is called Misty Mountains and it is written by Eliane of @patchworkandpoodles. You can purchase the pattern here.

This quilt is unique in that it is the first one I’ve ever made where I did a mock-up of the exact fabric colors before cutting into the fabric at all!

To do this mock-up design, I used the colors from Art Gallery Fabric’s PURE Solids collection and just played around with colors until I found something I couldn’t NOT make.

While the design is not quite perfect or a to-scale version of the actual quilt pattern, it gave me a good idea as to how the fabrics and colors will play out once in the design. Continue Reading →
