Welcome to the Wake Me Up Quilt Sew Along!

I’m so glad you will be joining me for my first ever Sew-Along.

The Wake Me Up Quilt is really special to me. Before I had Henry, my little boy, I had all the time in the world to spend designing fabric and patterns. Right after Henry was born, I realised that my quilting and designing window had become a lot smaller. I quickly found that as life got more complex, I really needed to simplify things and that included my designs!

Wake Me Up is one of the first quilts I’ve designed since I had Henry. They say that necessity is the mother of invention and boy have I discovered that. Henry sleeps for around 2 hours in the middle of the day, so I really wanted to make a quilt that was easy to piece, came together quickly and was fun to make.

I think the fact that I’ve already made 3 of these quilts shows just how fast and easy it is!

The brilliant thing about the Wake Me Up Quilt… is that it your sewing squares and half square triangles and it only uses 4 colours. This means that it’s perfect for working from your stash or raiding your scrap basket!

This quilt is all about colour placement!

You can see from looking at the 3 versions I’ve made so far that the quilt can look so different just by placing the colours in different positions.

While I haven't organised prizes just yet, I’m open to hearing from businesses who’d like to get in touch if they have a prize they’d like to offer. I’m conscious of how tough things are for lots of people and companies at the moment, so haven’t wanted to ask! Stay tuned for more details.

I can't wait to get started!
