#Tattoquiltsewalong

I love a good sew-a-long. I enjoy the community and structure that comes from making the same quilt as other and being told what to make when. It’s easier to be creative when there are less choices to make.

I joined Berne of @happysewlucky on Instagram to make her Tattoo Quilt using fabric from Tula Pink’s True Colors line. The result is pretty awesome.

Sew-a-longs are a great opportunity to build/practice some skills. I’ve been stretching my foundation paper piecing skills. This pattern has some fiddly seams to match and there are even Y-seams.

Here are the blocks I’ve made so far. Also, one of my 2021 goals is to figure out what my camera is focusing properly.

Piecing those flames was NO JOKE. There were a LOT of seams to match. The final result is fantastic!

The Courage and Love blocks taught my I can sew y-seams without dying.

  1. This is on my “WannaDo” List. I purchased the pattern on first sight. The design is classic and trendy all at the same time. Your observations about Sew-A-Longs is spot on. I love the social media aspect of seeing how others interpret the patterns.

    1. I strongly encourage you to try!!! The pattern is compelling and can be completely different depending on the colors you choose. 😀
