Easy As Pie Quilt Along {Plus a Giveaway!}

1-IMG_0509

Hello!  My name is Jamie and I have designed a quilt for the fabulous fabric store 1 Choice 4 Quilting.  The fabric is called “Little Apples” by Aneela Hoey and Nicole has put together some fabulous quilt kits that include all the fabric for the top, backing, and binding!

The finished quilt measures 54” x 70” and is made from one layer cake and an additional 1.5 yards of solid (I used Moda Bella Saffron), 3/4 yard for the border and binding, and exactly 4 yards for backing.

What I loved about making this quilt is how fast and easy it comes together, which is why I decided to call it “Easy As Pie.”  Since it’s made with a layer cake, there is no need to spend time obsessing about fabric choices, doing any complicated cutting or trimming, and the blocks and rows come together super fast!  This quilt is perfect for a new-to-quilting sewist or a seasoned pro who is looking for a quick quilt that is fun to make!  I have put together easy to follow tutorials with lots of photos, and if you are a beginner, there are videos you can use to help guide you step-by-step through the process!

You can find those quilt kits here.  The price is an amazing $67.99 for all the fabric you need to complete the entire quilt!!!  Nicole has even given you the option of picking your own backing fabric so you can customize your kit!  And while you are browsing, check out the newest Moda releases like Snap Pop, PB & J, and Spring House.  1 Choice 4 Quilting has same day shipping if you place your order before 4pm EST and all orders over $50 SHIP FOR FREE!!!  Yes, you heard that right, free priority USPS shipping for orders over $50!!!  It’s not that hard to spend $50 on quality quilt shop fabric, right?

The posts for each step of the quilt along will be found here on my blog:

February 4th:  Cutting and piecing pinwheel and sawtooth rows

February 11th:  Cutting and piecing wonky star blocks and center row

February 18th:  Sewing together rows and adding borders

February 25th:  Post your photo to Flickr by this day for a PRIZE!

Upload your progress and finished quilt photos to the Flickr page and if you complete your quilt top by February 25th (it does not have to be quilted and bound) you will be entered to win a quilt kit and one lucky winner will get a quilt kit for the next project in March!!!

1 Choice 4 Quilting is offering a super giveaway today!!!  One lucky winner will get an “Easy As Pie” Quilt Kit!!!  Just leave any comment on this blog post, and if you are a follower of my blog, you can have an additional entry!  Just leave me a comment letting me know how you follow.  You can also enter on Nicole’s 1 Choice 4 Quilting blog.  There are up to eight ways to win this sweet quilt kit!  The winner will be chosen on Monday, January 28th at noon.  Good luck and hope to have you quilting along with me in February!
