Chenille-It Sew Along – The Finished Quilt
I think I’m well beyond the point of being fashionably late… but better late than never. I finished adding the Chenille-It touches to my ‘Tis the Season, got it washed – and now photographed. I know many of you have been asking to see how the edge-to-edge quilting turned out and I’m happy to finally share!
The Chenille It Sew Along
If you missed out, Nanette at Chenille-It and I teamed up to take you step by step to add Chenille-It blooming bias to add a bit of texture and fun to a panel. We demo’d on my “Tis the Season” quilt panel from the Christmas Eve collection for Moda Fabrics.Of course, you could apply these steps to any panel or project you like. Here are the Chenille-It Sew Along Links including video tutorials:
- Week 1: Embellishing the Letters
- Week 2: Embellishing the Floral Elements
- Week 3: Quilting the Panel
- Week 4: Trimming/Binding/Washing
My Panel Results
During Week 3, we talk about quilting and the options there. It is ideal to have custom quilting done so that the quilting can go around the shapes and minimally disrupt the “blooming” of the Chenille-It bias ribbon. I would probably opt to do custom in the future but I do love the edge to edge quilting that Kaitlyn at Knot and Thread did for me. (She used the “Modern Twist Unraveled” pantograph.)
If I’m being super picky, the only thing I don’t love is the red thread going into the white flowers – maybe I should have done cream thread? Anyway, I still love it and am looking forward to turning it over to the kids for snuggles all holiday season.
Here’s one more shot of a closeup of the lettering. I think in the future I will also double up on Chenille-It blooming bias on the letters for maximum fluff!
There was a giveaway for Week 4 and it’s taken me months but I’ve picked a winner! Congrats to Jess K @littlekcreates. The prize is a boxed kit of Jolly Holiday in Christmas Eve fabric. 🙂
