Sweet Home Quilt Along: Week 6 - The Finale!

Sweet Home QAL banner

Welcome to week SIX, the final reveal week of the Sweet Home Quilt Along, a QAL I'm co-hosting with Sharon Holland, the designer behind the adorable Sweet Home quilt pattern, and Jennifer Jones of Penelope Handmade!

Sweet Home Weeks Graphic 6

Sweet Home Quilt Tops -- four tops!

For week SIX, this final week of our QAL, it's time to reveal our finished Sweet Home quilts! Whether you have a complete top to share, or several like I do, that you plan to send to a long arm quilter. Or if you completely finished your Sweet Home, quilted + bound, now is the time to photograph those beauties and celebrate! Below you can see the schedule we're following throughout the QAL, but of course we always encourage and want everyone to sew at their own pace!

Sweet Home QAL Schedule

The Sweet Home quilt pattern is designed by Sharon and is available in her SHOP, for those of you just finding out about our QAL. Throughout the quilt along I've made a total of four quilts, two to keep and two to give -- two made with my new Cozy & Joyful collection and two using the original Sweet Home quilt kit, both from Lady Belle Fabric!

As I mentioned last week, I'll be sending all four of my quilts to Brooke at Lady Belle Fabric who offers an edge to edge long arm quilting service, Lady Belle Quilting, in addition to her amazing fabric shop! I've decided on the allover quilting patterns for each and I can't wait to see them completely finished!

Sweet Home Quilt Tops -- Cozy & Joyful

From Brooke's catalog of quilting patterns, I decided on Frost, the large scale allover snowflake pattern from the narrowed down options I shared last week. Thank you to those of you who chimed in to offer your thoughts, it was a huge help! Since Potter County's snowy winters are one of my favorite things about living where I do, especially during the holidays, I decided it was the most meaningful option for my family's 2020 Christmas quilt that also has a background made with my creamy white with red stars print, Snowing Bright!

My my second Sweet Home quilt top, made using the original kit that was available at Lady Belle Fabric, I decided on the Baptist Heart Clams quilting pattern. It's just so sweet and I ultimately chose this option because I think the fans + heart combo will be a meaningful way to show all the love that went into making these quilts!
