You guys!! I’m nervous and excited to announce I’m working on my very FIRST quilt. I have cut out two quilts in the past, and have never worked up enough courage to start them. I’ve always been nervous about the complexity of a quilt, so I’m trying something new and fun!
Cricut and Riley Blake have partnered to bring the world digitized quilting patterns, and I’m giving one a try. These digital patterns tell the Cricut Maker exactly how many pieces to cut, and you can even cut out multiple fabric layers at once. I’m super excited to start the process, and I’ll bring you along as I do.
I’m, by no means, a quilt expert, so I’ve been asking a lot of questions to the sewing community as I get started. One piece of advice I got, was to buy this brand of batting. I’ll let you know how I like it, but initially it felt like the softest option that Joann offered.
These are the materials I have so far:
- Forget Me Not Fabric
- Trendy Triangles Baby Quilt Pattern
- Rotary Cutting Kit
- Sewing Tool Kit
You know I’m a sucker for Gigham, so this Riley Blake- Forget Me Not fabric pack stole my heart. This is what you’ll get if you order the same pack.
You can see the other fabric packs here, check them out! Here’s a little sneak peak of the options:
Choosing a Pattern
Let me walk you through the process of choosing a pattern. You can first browse the Riley Blake quilt designs here. There are so many beautiful options!
Once you pick your quilt, you click on “Make It”. After loading your fabric, you’ll click on “Purchase.” Cricut will walk you through the rest. The process seams really simple and I’m excited to dig in and get started.
I picked this simple Trendy Triangles Baby Quilt for my first project. My colors will be different, but I think this will turn out super cute.
Thanks for following along. I’ll continue to update you as my progress continues. Check out my Instagram account to see more frequent updates as well.
