"Me Sew Happy" Quilt Along Week Six

Updated: May 14

Week Six - 6-13 May


This is it - our final week! First of all, I am so sorry that this blog post is so late. I had entirely forgotten about it... I have been sidetracked this week, sewing for my next pattern release. I am loving how this new quilt is coming together. It is another scrap style quilt, but with a repeat pattern running through it. Anyway, enough about that - for now :)


If you haven't already, this last week is all about putting your quilt top together. I have loved seeing the finishes to date & am excited to see more, as they are finished. Be sure to post a picture on Instagram & use the hashtag #mesewhappyquilt so that we can admire your work.


Thank you so very much to everyone who has participated - it is humbling, delightful & such a privilege, all at once, to have so many of you creating your own 'Me Sew Happy' quilt. Keep an eye out for my next pattern, & if you're interested in being a pattern tester for me, send me a DM - I'd love to hear from you!


This week's Instagram homework:

  1. share a picture of your completed 'Me Sew happy' quilt top - whether it's finished this week, next month, or next year! Remember, it's your quilt, so your rules - finish it whenever you'd like! Just remember to use the hashtag #memsewhappyquilt so that we can see your pics.


This week's "Me Sew Happy" target:

  1. assemble your quilt top

  2. take your time with it, carefully pressing seams as you go for a better finish

  3. your Instagram homework (above)


One final giveaway! To celebrate this last week of the 'Me Sew Happy' Quilt Along, there will be one final giveaway - a "Lemon Myrtle" Curated Fat Quarter Bundle, valued at $44AUD!! The winner will randomly selected from all pictures to date, of completed 'Me Sew Happy' quilt tops. So, to be clear, if you completed your quilt top a few weeks ago & you have posted a picture a few weeks ago, you will be eligible to win - as long as you have used the #mesewhappyquilt hashtag. The winner will be drawn on May 14 & announced on my Instagram stories, as well as here - in this blog post, which I will update. Good luck! Update: Congratulations to the winner of this giveaway, @kkornp !!


And, finally, one last reminder about this Super Special Quilting Offer: my friend Judy, of Furball Farm Quilts machine quilted my "Me Sew Happy" quilt. This is the fifth quilt that Judy has done for me & I have been delighted with them all - there has never been an issue, & always with friendly & efficient service. Judy used the design 'Eye Appeal' for my quilt & you can see it in more detail if you scroll back through my Instagram posts. I think it works a treat with this pattern. As we commenced this quilt along, I reached out to Judy to see if she might have a special offer for "Me Sew Happy" Quilt Along participants & she has delivered! The details are below:

  • a 20% discount off your choice of quilting designs

  • plus, Judy can also provide the wadding at a 20% discount

  • if you're interested, simply follow Judy on Instagram (@furball_farm_quilting) & send her a message

Again, my most sincere thanks for participating in my 'Me Sew Happy' Quilt Along, & enjoy your beautiful quilt!
