Potter's Wheel Quilt Along WEEK SEVEN

We're at WEEK 7!  This Quilt Along has been flying by for me.  Has it flown by for you, too?

This is our last week of sewing blocks, so finish 'em up!!!  Week 8 will be all about assembling our quilt tops!

Oh my goodness guys!  I'm loving your work!  Thanks so much for quilting along with me!  As an update on my quilt, well it's looking great!

Since I wanted to do an Ombre layout, I cut and sewed all the curves, then pinned them to my design board to plan the layout.  I spent Easy Week sewing the blocks together.  It looks prettier than I imagined it would.  Don't ya love when that happens?

All planned out!

 The blocks are now almost all assembled, and layout is finalized.

The time has come to share the final Giveaways!  We have four prizes!  Winners will be randomly chosen from those who have posted a finished quilt top by midnight on the last day of Week 8, which is Sunday November 18th.  Winners will be announced on Nov 19th.

Here are the prizes from our great giveaway sponsors:

Jaymi Horne especially loves Foundation Paper Piecing because she says she has very little patience and doesn't like pre-cutting.  I totally get that!  Sometimes we all just want to get to the sewing!  Jaymi has over 50 patterns and many more in the works!  Take a look at her FPP tutorial on her “quick and dirty” method.

Handmades and Quilts Shop

The Winner will win their choice of 6 patterns from her shop!  We'll notify Jaymi of the winner's selections, and she will send you the digital files of the patterns.


This is Bobbie from the Geeky Bobbin If you haven't already seen her longarm quilting, fussy cutting tutorials, and her fun Retro Tetro pattern (it's on display at Quilt Market!), be sure to check her out! The Moonrise Quilt is the first pattern in Geeky Bobbin's Lakeside Reflections Series. This geometric, modern landscape quilt plays with subtle changes in colour value and basic shapes at different scales to add texture and movement. This pattern includes tips for piecing curves, so even a confident beginner can successfully make a striking wall hanging or throw quilt.

We're all curved piecing pros now anyways, right?

Bobbie offered to do a rendering of her new pattern in Bequest!  I love it!
The winner will receive a digital copy of The Moonrise Quilt, her next pattern coming out later this month.  If you want it the second it's available, Bobbie has started a preorder for the pattern.

Winner receives Andrea's Sleepy Fox Kit!  Isn't it a fun block?


RJR is celebrating its 40th anniversary this Fall, and as you probably know, Caverly and I are textile designers with them.  They're happy to sponsor our Grand Prize- a bundle of their new Cotton and Steel Basics!  They don't even ship out until the new year, but one of you will be getting them early!

I'm in love with these basics already.  I've been playing with the digital files for months, because I designed some new quilt patterns for the new C+S lines, Kibori, by Chiemi Fujita and Wildwood by Rifle Paper Co.  Both quilts use some basics.  I haven't gotten to sew with the basics yet though, because the sample yardage just barely arrived before Quilt Market, so these were pieced at RJR, and they'll be shipping fabric to me as soon as they're back from Market so I can remake these for the pattern covers!

So, you have one day short of two weeks to show us your finished quilt top!  You can do it!  Think of how great it will feel to sew that last row, hold it up, and admire your handiwork!


  1. Amazing prizes and your quilt top is looking amazing! Congratulations on your designs for Kibori and Rifle Paper, you are an inspiration!

  2. Agreed. Great prizes. I am so happy to read that I have until midnight Sunday to finish. I have all 64 blocks made and squared, just have to sew the top together. I really enjoyed making this and I know I will make it again.
