Grow is the first design in a series of four quilts that represent the four seasons in a year, as well as seasons in our lives. Each pattern focuses on a sewing skill along with a general life meditation. Since quilting can naturally be meditative and restorative, these meditations will be an added thing to consider as you walk through the quilt-making process.⁣

The primary skill involved in making the Grow quilt is strip piecing and pressing. Before turning on your iron or sewing machine, pause for a minute to close your eyes and take some deep breaths, listening to your body’s rhythm. While you sew your strips and gently press your seams, consider how you have personally grown – be it mentally, emotionally, or simply as a quilter.

    Such a cute quilt and such a cute baby! I’ve never done a sew along so I think I will try it out in the baby size for my nephew.

  2. Arlene Vanhooser says:

    Am I mistaken or are there no measurements for the stripes? Love the concept and is a cute quilt, would be better with actual measurements, other wise meditation gets a little stressful for me at my age

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      When the pattern comes out next week there will be full measurements, instructions with illustrations and lots of color variations to help get your creative juices flowing. 😉

  3. Cindy Boals says:

    I would love to try this. Being relatively new, how do you determine which color is which in your fabric requirements? For example, in the quilt shown, which is color 1, 2, etc. maybe it’s there and I missed it.

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      Great question! So the pattern will include a really clear schematic with Color 1-7 labels, but with what’s seen here if you look at the left side of the Fabric Requirements chart you can see small color swatches. Those coordinate with color blocks in the quilt.

  4. Libby says:

    Loving this quilt. Medatative breathing then quilting is a very good practice. I want to sew along with you and cannot wait for the pattern release!

  5. Carol Stewart says:

    Susy, you did it again! Another beautiful quilt. I just bought a Stripology ruler and I think I’m ready for this quilt too.

  6. Mimi Mitchell says:

    At first glance I know I want to make this quilt. It is stunning! Your designs are so wonderfully different from the quilt patterns I see. They always draw me in to look: at the design, detail of quilting, and the color choices. I’m currently working on a king size quilt for my twin for a house warming gift and pray I finish in time to join the sew along. I don’t have Facebook so will have to decide what to do. Anyway ~ great job!!!!

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      Thank you, Mimi! I will post all of the sew along info here on the blog, so no need for social media. If you want to win prizes, those will be handed out through Instagram participation, but again, not necessary. Good luck finishing such a large quilt! I commend your bravery. 😉

  7. Robyn says:

    Suzy, I am new to quilting and really enjoy learning from your posts. I love your creative ideas and fabric choices and the variations in how you quilt each piece. I have my fabric ready to go for this one and can’t wait to get started!

  8. SuzyShep says:

    I do NOT need to start another project…..however, I reeeeaallly want the fun of the QAL, so I think I might just have to do this. PS Desi is a fantastic quilt model.

  9. Shannon says:

    I love the colors that Desi showed us and he is SO cute and squishy… I don’t know how you get anything done! What is that amazing fabric you used for the back? I love it!!!

  10. Janice Peterson says:

    Hi Suzy my name is Janice just want to say I just love your quilt designs and made one for my grandson, will definitely be joining QAL show your patterns to all my quilting friends here in Melbourne Australia.

  11. Teresa says:

    Love this, but I am horr-i-ble at cutting long strips straight. They go all wonky at the fold. Will you provide tips on how to avoid this? Thanks so much!

  12. Lisa says:

    I love the design and how it highlights the fabric choices of the quilter and then practicing breathing and meditation while sewing so much the better!
