Twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays I will post a new Sew Along post, here on my blog, where I will show exactly how I make each piece. Then I will also make posts about the piecing of the quilt and the finishing steps.
You can buy the pattern on Craftsy and if you buy the whole series you get one free!!
Here is the schedule for the Fruit Basket Sew Along:
So on to the sewing, this is my favorite part.
I have decided that the first quilt I make will be a wall hanging with the designs arranged in a square of 3 x 3 and it will be for my sister's kitchen :) Her kitchen is mainly grey and white so I chose foundation colors in light grey. I also chose a grey scaled stripped fabric for sashing and borders. The light grey solids are part of a Kona cotton fat quarter collection I bought from Fat Quarter Shop and I also bought the stripped grey fabric from there.
Here you can see the colors I have chosen for the first block, the melon.
I will start with a little preparation on my first post, explaining Foundation Paper Piecing among other things. It will be easier if you have some experience with FPP but I think a beginner who is used to sewing and specially sewing quilts will get a hang of it soon. If at anytime during the Sew Along you get stuck and need to ask me a question you are welcome to comment on my posts, send me messages on Facebook or send an email, and I will try to answer you if I possible can :)
