We Welcome You Back to the Winter Walk in the Woods Sew Along Week #6- Our Last Week Together!
From Susan: Welcome back to the final week of our Winter Walk in the Woods Quilt Along!
Joanna and I hope you have enjoyed sewing with us these past five weeks and that this sew along has helped pass the time for you during the cold and snowy days of January.
If you haven’t gotten to go out for your own Winter Walk in the Woods, I hope you get to go soon!
Since I know so many of you are anxious to see the final quilt layout, we will get right down to work with our final quilt assembly.
As Joanna and I have mentioned throughout this quilt along, there are many pieces that are similar sizes and shapes and it is easy to get things mixed up with your final assembly.
Be sure to cut your pieces carefully according to the notes below and label them as soon as you have cut them. I kept my labels pinned to each section while I sewed my quilt center and I found that, because I wasn’t second guessing which piece went where, it made the final assembly go very quickly.
Lastly, take note of the size of each border as you cut and add them. Some of the border sizes vary in order to ensure the pieced borders fit.
The final result is a soft, bold and striking design worthy of any winter decorating scheme, don’t you think?!
We’ve noted that Winter Walk in the Woods is a generous size throw quilt but wanted to keep the final dimensions as part of the mystery until the final week since we love a good surprise!
The quilt measures 69” x 69” and you will need 4 1/3 yard for your backing. I chose one of the small-scale cream backing sets Joanna offered in the shop for my quilt and I love the results!
Step 11: Quilt as desired. We opted for a small-scale edge to edge design to create texture without taking away from the overall design. (Sample shown in Bread Basket by Apricot Moon)
Step 12: Bind using (8) 2 ¼” strips of a small ivory print of your choosing.
Susan and Joanna
