Quilt Top Assembly
This week is honestly pretty self-explanatory: sew the rows together to form your quilt top. As mentioned in the Week Five blog post, nesting seams is very helpful.
In the photo below, you can see how the seams butt up nicely against each other since they have been pressed in opposite directions.
The end result is blocks that line up nicely on the front of the quilt:
When sewing rows together, I normally press my seams open, but this time I opted to press to one side. It worked well and made things go even faster!
Week Six Prize
This week is the grand finale prize: a $100 fabric shopping spree from me!
As a reminder, to be entered to win this prize, you need to post a photo of your finished Aftershock quilt top (does not need to be quilted, just sewn together!) using the hashtag #AftershockSA before 11:59CST on Sunday, September 12, 2021. The winner will be announced on my Instagram (winner will be tagged) on Monday, September 13.
Here is a peek of my finished top! I am sending it off soon to be quilted and can't wait to get more photos of it soon. Speaking of quilting, keep on reading...
Long Arm Quilting Discount
The Longarm League has graciously offered to extend a 20% off edge-to-edge quilting deal to all completed Aftershock quilt tops sent in by the end of November 2021. I will link the page below to get more information on that. I will definitely be taking advantage of that for my top!
I bought this gorgeous Warp and Weft Heirloom plaid print to go on the back of my quilt. I cannot wait to put this one in regular rotation at our house!
Thank you SO MUCH for sewing along with me! I am hoping to have more sew alongs in the future. Perhaps a Cold Front sew along would be cool?
A sneak peek of my upcoming pattern, Cold Front, can be seen below. It is slated to be released in early November. I think making some mittens with you would be a lot of fun!
