Recap for the Week!

I didn’t get a ton of sewing done this week, but I did finish a few things, which felt great. I have one quilt in my sights for next week as it only needs a binding, so that is my goal.

My biggest finish for this week was a very quick quilt I made for my son.

It’s not the prettiest quilt I have made, but it was made in under an hour and my son adores it, so it was a win-win! I wrote a quick tutorial for it too (though I warn you, it’s pretty rough!! LOL). You can find it here:

Quick, Easy, and Cuddly Quilt

My second finish was a tutorial for EQ7. I got this as an early Mother’s Day present and have been having loads of fun using it. I had a hard time finding tutorials for the program online, so I figured as I was playing around I would type up some quick tutes for anyone that might have this program.

And of course I will share the resulting quilts as patterns on my blog too! For now I have posted the tutorial for the basic quilt design in Electric Quilt 7 here:

EQ7 Basics Tutorial

I am having so much fun using this program. I have wanted it for a while, but never actually went through with buying it. I wish I had!! I think you’ll be seeing a lot more patterns round these parts. I already have my Sew Out Loud paper piecing pattern done up in EQ7 so I can share it with you guys soon!

And if you subscribe to my newsletter below, you may even find some fun stuff in your inbox soon (hint, hint)!! 🙂 🙂

I think that’s it for this week, I am looking forward to next week and seeing what I can get done!

Happy Quilting!

  1. I just recently finished a sewing project on my hardly-ever-used 7 year old sewing machine. Since then I’ve caught the sewing bug and would someday like to make my own quilt. Thanks for the easy tutorial.

    1. It’s very easy!! Start basic and work your way up. 🙂 Good luck!!


  2. I have EQ6 and love it…I’m sure you will continue to enjoy yours also….

  3. Aw, it looks so warm and cuddly! How was it working with the minty back? I keep meaning to try it. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF! I’m also learn EQ, although I have an older version, so I’ll be checking back to see what you do with yours.

    1. It was very forgiving which was great! But it also was very stretchy, I wouldn’t use it for anything I needed to be precise on for sure.


  4. Your quilt looks great – really warm and snug 🙂

  5. Warm & Cuddly is what it is all about! Nice looking quick quilt! Thank you for linking up with TGIFF!

  6. One hour! I am so super impressed! I have a goal of finishing knitting a scarf this year! LOL Found you on the Friday Blog Hop!
