Stormy Seas Week #1

Stormy Seas QAL is here!!!!!

So, over the weekend, you should have picked out your fabrics.....and gotten started on cutting it out and bagging it. If you didn't have a chance to do that, or are joining us late, no worries, you can join us at any time, just start where you are!

So, here's the schedule :

Week 1 : This week ! November 17 - November 23 - Bag # 1 Assembly

Week 2 : November 24 - November 30 - Bag #2 Assembly

Week 3 : December 1 - December 7 - Bag #3 Assembly

Week 4 : December 8 - December 15 - Bag #4 Assembly

Week 5 : December 16 - December 22 - Sewing Curves

Week 6 : December 23 - December 29 - Final Assembly

So, since we are on day 2 of Week 1, let's get started.

1. Set bags 2, 3, and 4 aside for next week.

2. Take everything out of bag 1, and lay it out on your cutting table.

3. Number your papers 1-16, to keep it organized....

4. Use a fold template and fold along each solid line in order......in this case, I used a fedex card, but any thin fold template will do. I do this to help me figure out what the piece looks like, and how to place  the pieces.

5, now, stack your fabrics, starting at the back, with the largest numbers. Make sure that you put the sew side to the top.

6. Time to sew! Meet me back here tomorrow to see how it goes!

Happy Sewing!

  1. How perfectly you do your curves. Very beautiful quilt. Love your choices in fabric, but I imagine it would be very captivating with other fabric choices as well.
