Hi my loves! Can you believe another week has come to an end? It goes by very fast. Even more so when we are busy, learning new techniques, new models. So we are very happy to share all this with you. Today we are going to learn a new pattern to brighten up the environment, the Sunset Boulevard Quilt. This model is amazing, very colorful and full of joy. It comes to highlight the environment, make everything more cozy and inviting to spend time.
This quilt is also made in blocks, but unlike other quilts, these blocks are not always the same. In the pattern you find how to make each one of them. The fabrics are very colorful too, make everything more fun. You can change the colors, the prints you choose, but remember that the result will be different. Quilts like this match almost any environment. Regardless of the environments, you can combine with smooth pillows, which have the same color. It’s going to be amazing.
We separate some tips that will help you when quilting. There is some debate on what tools are best for marking fabric. If you are worried about quilt markers not washing out, fine line chalk markers are a great option. Especially if you want to do more detailed, finer designs. Different quilting techniques call for different sewing machine feet. You can use a quarter inch foot for sewing small seams and piecing together your quilt. However, using a walking foot for your binding and heavier quilting will better feed the fabric through the machine.

Scissors aren’t always the best tool for cutting fabric. Get a rotary cutter to make trimming quilts faster. Pressing fabrics before cutting your quilt block pieces also makes a big difference in your piecing accuracy. Sometimes even a small fold or wrinkle can make a big difference in the size of the block. You can press pre-cuts before cutting to remove wrinkles.
