My Herringbone QAYG Quilt is by far my most favorite quilt to make! With each new collection that comes out at some point I think to myself, "oooh, that would make a pretty Herringbone QAYG." It's such a great pattern and is an absolute joy to make, it's just FUN! Of all the things I've made & shared throughout my sewing/blogging years, my very first Herringbone QAYG, along with the original tutorial, has remained my most popular quilt finish, the most viewed posts here on my blog, and I continue to receive question & comments almost daily in regards to it. Now I finally get the opportunity to make one right with you! I've learned a lot since that first one, little changes that make a big difference in how it all comes together. In this class I get to talk about each of those things and other tips & tricks I use with each new one I make!
My Herringbone class quilt is made in April Rhodes' Bound fabrics, a collection I've been crazy about these past few months. I wanted to show that all you have to do to make a beautiful quilt is simply pick up a Jelly Roll or Fat Quarter bundle of a collection you really love, add in a few solids, and faster than you can imagine you'll have a gorgeous, amazing new quilt. I was also careful in choosing what size we'd make in class. One of the many things I love about this pattern is how easily you can adapt the size, so feel free to go as small or large as you like. Since I really hope & believe this quilt is just perfect for you first-time quilters, I decided on a single lap size measuring 48" x 56," a perfect curl-up-on-the-couch quilt or to have at the bottom of the bed for when you need an extra layer. I can't wait to have this one back at home!!
Most of all, I really can't wait to make this quilt with YOU!! With Craftsy I get to interact with those of you who take my class. That means I'm there for you -- to answer questions, for advice, and best of all -- to celebrate you & all the awesome things you're going to make!!
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a look at the final class quilt we'll be making! ♡ Maureen
