The Grow quilt pattern will be available on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, but because I know it's fun to plan and shop for fabric, I want you to have the fabric requirements NOW!!
Join the Suzy Quilts Patterns Facebook Group to see a video on how to use the free Recolor app to color in the line mock-up included in all SQ patterns on your phone or tablet.
Below are the sizes the Grow pattern will include:
- King - 116" X 116"
- Queen/Full - 86" x 100"
- Twin - 79" x 92"
- Throw - 61" x 61"
- Baby - 40" x 40"
There will be an online community sew along (similar to our Mod Mountains and Modern Fans sew alongs starting April 1, 2020. All of the sizes have a similar layout to this mockup EXCEPT the baby quilt. It's a tiny bit different, so Desi wanted to show you an example.
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.
