This pattern would be considered good for an intermediate quilter. It has a lot of blocks and pieces to make and keep organized.

Week 3 – Make Large Arrow units, Diamond in Square and Diamond in Rectangle units.

This week we will be making some more units. These units are used in several of the blocks, so I like to make them ahead of time, so the blocks will go together super quick when we start to make them.

These units will all use the ‘Stitch and Flip’ method that is used in a 1 at a time Flying Geese block.

Once you’ve finished make sure to snap a photo and share in the Facebook Quilt Along group or on Instagram with the hashtag #InfiniteNightHelixQAL

I’m so excited to see your quilt come together! There are a few quilters in the Facebook quilt along that decided to work ahead and are almost finished with their quilts. They are looking SO beautiful!!

Week 1 – Infinite Night Helix QAL – Cut Pieces

Printed Paper Pattern
Digital Download (USA)
Digital Download (Outside USA customers)
Today is the last day to save 15% OFF on the pattern, starting tomorrow the pattern will be 10% OFF thru the end of the Quilt along on November 15th (end of the quilt along).

This pattern would be considered good for an intermediate quilter. It has a lot of blocks and pieces to make and keep organized.

WEEK 1 – Cut Pieces

This week will be cutting our fabric for the quilt. Typically, I prefer to cut out the whole quilt first, so you don’t have to worry about doing it later. With this quilt, I chose to wait to cut the Color D ‘Pieces around blocks’ and the ‘Top, Bottom and Side borders’ until all my blocks are completed. Since I won’t be using them for a very long time.

You will want to wait to cut the Color D ‘Pieces around blocks’ and the ‘Top, Bottom and Side borders’ especially if your blocks don’t always end up the correct size. Then you can adjust these pieces to be the same size as your blocks.

If you make sure all your units are measuring the correct size throughout making the quilt, your blocks should end up the correct size. And you don’t have to worry about waiting to cut those pieces.

If you are making a scrappy version, you may want to cut out 1 block at a time.

I wrote the pattern using the 4 at a time flying geese method. Then I decided to add a ‘supplemental’ that includes two alternative ways to make your flying geese, in case you hate the 4 at a time method. These methods are on the very last page of the pattern. You can substitute the 4 at a time pieces (indicated with a FG in the cutting instructions) with the pieces listed on the supplemental.

Tips for cutting your fabric:
*Make sure to press all of your fabric before cutting. This will help ensure all of your pieces are cut correctly. You don’t want to accidently have a wrinkle in a piece. 
*Cut out your larger pieces first, then cut out the smaller ones. This helps you conserve your fabric.
*Cut all of your fabric with the same brand of rulers. If you are using multiple rulers, they can vary from brand to brand and may not be the same. So, I like to stick to one brand.

INFINITE NIGHT HELIX QUILT

My original design of this quilt did not include that twisted element. It was just a 2-color quilt. When I showed it to my husband and kids, they thought it would be really cool if it had a twisted effect like a double helix. As Cloud would say ‘Mr. DNA’. So, I got working and made the pattern have the twisted element. I love how it turned out!

To give the quilt this twisted element it requires a lot of blocks and pieces to keep organized, that is why I am considering this an intermediate quilt pattern.

I made the original quilt as a graduation gift for my nephew. His favorite color is blue. So, I went with Kona Cotton in: A: White, B: Peacock, C: Canary and D: Prussian.

I quilted this echoing the design at first 1/4 inch from the seams and then I echoed it into the background space about 2-inch sections. I used my Hera Marker to help decided where I wanted my lines to go.

I bound the quilt in the Kona Cotton Peacock.

I hope you love this design as much as I loved making this quilt for my nephew!

Happy Quilting!!

Blooming Backyard Quilt

You can now find my Blooming Backyard Quilt Pattern in my shop!

Digital (USA)
Digital (International Customers)
Printed Paper (USA) (Available May 19th)

When I first designed this quilt, I was going to make it in a 2 fabric combo. It was during the winter time and I was trying to design something that reminded me of a Faire Isle Sweater. But with having the kids still doing school at home I didn’t get around to making it.

So, when spring was around the corner, I thought what would it look like with lots of color. So, with this pattern you will have the option to make it in 2 colors, with Main colors (like my cover quilt above) or Super scrappy! The pattern comes with blank coloring pages for each size, to make it easier to decide!

Since this pattern, has multiple sizes, but the blocks are not all the same size, each size has a different recommended layout. Since the blocks are made and then sewn into rows, you can rearrange the rows to how you like them best.

Here are the different size layout recommendations!

This pattern is great for the adventurous beginner to intermediate quilter. This pattern comes with directions to either make the flying geese with either:
The 1 at 1 time method – this may be an easier method if you are new to flying geese.
Or the 4 at time method, made slightly larger and trimmed to size – these are a little tricker to make, but once you get the hang of it, you can make your flying geese super fast!

Do you hate Flying Geese?

If you absolutely hate flying geese, I’d recommend replacing your flying geese with 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch rectangles.

Use the 4 at 1 time flying geese cutting instructions, but do NOT cut the Color D (Lime) that is in the cutting chart or the Color F (White) pieces that have a (FG) next to it.
Instead, go to the bottom of page 6 to see how many flying geese your size quilt needs. Replace the amount of flying geese needed with 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch rectangles, cut half of this amount from Color D and cut half of the amount from Color F.
If you are making it scrappy, cut total amount needed from all the colors you are using.

My Blooming Backyard Quilt

For my quilt I chose to use the main colors option.  

For the Main colors I used all Kona Cotton solids: A: Valentine, B: Duckling, C: Magenta, D: Kiwi, E: Surf, F: White, G: Jamaica, H: Jamaica and I: Valentine.
Background: Hot Pink Le Creme Swiss Dot by Riley Blake Designs. I found mine at Stash Fabrics (not sponsored)
Binding: Wild at Heart Plaid by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake Designs. I found mine at Stash Fabrics (not sponsored)
Backing: The Squeeze Sunflowers by @made_everyday for Figo Fabrics. I found mine at Beyond The Bolt (not sponsored)

For quilting, I did a simple top to bottom ‘organic’ straight line from the top to the bottom about 2 inches apart. I like to use my walking foot and the seams as my guide.

I probably should have cut my binding on the bias, but I chose not to. I still love how it turned out!

THIS WEEK! March 29 – Week 8 – Finish our quilts – Finish Quilt top, Baste, Quilt and Bind!

Finishing our Quilts!

Things you will need:
Backing Fabric (at least 6 inches wider and longer than your quilt top.)
Quilt Batting (at least 6 inches wider and longer than your quilt top*)
* If you plan on having a longarmer quilt your quilt, check with them to see how much overhang they need.)
Basting Spray or Basting Pins
Binding Fabric
These are helpful but not necessary:
Hera Marker to mark out your quilting lines
Walking Foot (Helps pull your quilt from both the top and the bottom)

Quilt Sandwich:
First you will need to make your Quilt Sandwich. You will need to cut and sew your backing fabric to make it fit under your quilt correctly. Make sure it is at least 3 inches wider than your quilt top on all sides (quilt top size + 6 inches). Trim your selvage edge off after joining your pieces.

Make your quilt sandwich by first laying down your quilt backing, wrong side facing up. Tape down to a hard surface, making fabric taut. Next lay your batting on top. Smooth out with your hands, do not stretch. Then lay your quilt top right side up, smooth out with your hands.  

There are so many different types of batting. I really love the Warm Company products! I have been using the Warm and Plush a lot lately because it is a little thicker than the Warm and Natural and the Warm and White cotton battings. The Warm and White is nice when you have a lot of light colors or white in your quilt and you don’t want the batting to alter the colors at all.

Basting Your Quilt: 

Spray baste: My favorite way to baste my quilt is by using Spray Baste! It makes basting so much easier. If you have allergies, this is probably not a good option for you. I’ve tried several different types of spray baste. Some are better than others.
505 Temporary adhesive spray has come highly recommended by several quilters to me. I have been using this brand for the last few quilts I have made. It has great stickiness without being overly sticky. I love that it does not get all over the place like some other sprays I have used.
Find a place where you can lay out your quilt. Make sure to tape the backing fabric taut to the floor (or large table).

Here’s a great spray baste tutorial by Emily Dennis of Quilty Love.  Spray Baste Tutorial
Morgan Kelly has a great tabletop spray basting tutorial on her Instagram. Table Top Spray Baste Tutorial

Pin basting: You can use large curved safety pin about 3 to 4 inches apart (about the width of your hand). I like to use the large curved basting pins. This takes a little longer than the spray basting, but is a great option.

Quilting your Quilt:
I love that Quilting your quilt can give it another design element. You can choose to send your quilt to a longarmer or quilt it yourself.

Make sure to check your batting to see how far apart your quilting lines need to be.

For my original quilt I did a checker quilting by quilting straight lines from top to bottom and straight lines from side to side. I placed my quilting lines in the center of my pieces, so they were evenly spaced.
I usually quilt using a white thread, but this time I decided to go with a yellow thread since there is a lot of yellow in this quilt and it is one of the lightest colors in this quilt.

Hand Tie your Quilt: Some prefer to tie there quilt. Suzy Quilts has an cool way of tying quilts. Check out her Tutorial!

Hand Quilt: Here’s a wonderful video tutorial by Suzy Quilts all about How to Hand Quilt.

Machine Quilt using your Walking Foot: 
Emily Dennis from Quilty Love has a great tutorial on how to Zig zag quilt your quilt with a Walking foot. Click here I love this method of quilting, it give your quilt great texture.

Free Motion Quilting:
Free motion quilting can give you great texture and if you aren’t great at quilting straight lines, this would be great for you. Suzy Williams from Suzy Quilts has a great Free Motion Quilting Tutorial. Click here.

Binding Your Quilt:

Binding is the fabric strip that goes on the edge of your quilt. It covers all of the unfinished edges and rounds out your quilt.

You will want to make sure to square up your quilt before you attach the binding. Cut off the extra batting around the edges and make sure your sides are straight and corners are squared.

Most quilters will cut 2 1/2 inch by width of fabric strips and then sew them together at the ends at a diagonal. Then press the strip in half, so that you are wrapping 2 layers of fabric around all of your edges.

You can machine sew the binding to the front of your quilt and wrap it around to the back and hand stitch it down. Or some prefer sewing the binding to the back of the quilt, wrapping it around to the front and machine stitching it down.

Machine binding tutorial by Emily Dennis of Quilty Love CLICK HERE. This is a great beginner friendly tutorial.

Here is a great binding tutorial by Suzy Williams of Suzy Quilts CLICK HERE.

I’m so excited to see everyone finished quilts! Make sure to post them in the Quilt Along Group on Instagram with the Hashtag #PrismaticPartyQAL

Happy Quilting!
